From the beaches of the Cape to the townships of Soweto, and from famous Kruger National Park to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, South Africa has so much to offer any visitor who takes the time to scratch beneath the surface. A South African road trip allows you the time and freedom to explore at your leisure, taking in the larger natural parks but also visiting lesser known and less
crowded reserves such as Hluhluwe-Imfilozi in Kwa-Zulu Natal. Or join the dots, spending time in the places in between Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. Choose to self drive, and you know you will always have our Concierge on hand to suggest routes or stop-offs, and to recommend must-sees such as penguin colonies on the Atlantic coast or the dramatic drive to the Cape of Good Hope. Below is a selection of some of our favourite South Africa road trips.

To say we had the holiday of a lifetime would be an understatement. The attention to detail was unbelievable and it's those things that helped contribute to the great time we had. Given my brief was pretty vague(!), you did an incredible job at creating the most magical of holidays. I could wax lyrical about all the amazing things we saw and did but I won't bore you. But suffice to say, it really surpassed all of our expectations and then some! My husband loved it and both boys have got some memories that will last them a lifetime. The team (and I mean a team!) listened to my rather vague ideas and came up with a wonderful plan for my holiday, which had a significant meaning and they were really respectful of that. Their attention to detail was fantastic, their communication was great and the holiday itself was wonderful in every way. They even handled my last-minute panic (my son was ill 48 hours before we were due to travel!) with calmness, reassuring me and putting an alternative plan into place, should we have needed it (thankfully we didn't!). I would not hesitate to recommend them or indeed use them again. The only downside - they have rather spoilt me for holidays as I only want to do big, 'holidays of a lifetime' with them....! Incredible on every level. The locations, the staff, the resorts, the little touches, the smooth transitions, the planning, the detail - just fantastic.
