South Africa Holiday Ideas

South Africa ticks a lot of boxes for the perfect getaway destination; great for honeymooners with romantic scenic backdrops wherever they stay, an active location for families, ideal for babymooners as it is Malaria free and it's even close enough for a long weekend. There is something for everyone, even a private game reserve for those who want a bit more of an exclusive trip.

Christmas in South Africa

South Africa is one of the most physically stunning, varied, culturally fascinating countries on the planet – there can be few better places in which to celebrate Christmas. Not to mention the fact that the sun will be shining and the temperatures balmy.
