A tailor made trip to South Africa has all the ingredients of a recipe for a thoroughly enjoyable trip. The diverse landscapes mean that no two places you visit will ever feel the same, so if you don't get round to all the regions on your first trip, it is a great excuse to come back. Popular Western Cape and Cape Town are particularly enticing with Table Mountain, Robben Island and gourmet delights - oh and several wine cellars. Cape Town and the Winelands are also pretty great for a long weekend. For a change of scenery, literally, the Garden Route boasts pristine beaches, lush flora and fauna and copious wildlife. As for the seeing the big five, Kruger National Park and private reserves in the Eastern Cape are where to go.
