Safari Holidays and Activities in South Africa

Each region in South Africa offers a little something different to do, but it is activities galore wherever you go. Those looking for more energetic pursuits might enjoy exploring South Africa on horseback or getting high (now, now) sightseeing via helicopter, possibly even indulging in water sports. For a slower pace of life a luxury train journey, gourmet tour or a visit to the vineyards of South Africa's Winelands, should be on the agenda. We are a little bit partial to whale watching, but who know great white shark cage diving might be more to the tastes of others. The possibilities are endless and we will tailor make a trip to your tastes, in the meantime here are some suggestions of what to do in South Africa to ponder:
