With its pristine coastline, a phenomenal climate and awesome
adventures ranging from shark-diving to historic trails and wine tasting, South Africa is guaranteed to provide you with the unforgettable journey of a lifetime. Here are just some of the many reasons to visit.
Surely, one of the most beautiful regions on the planet, the Cape Peninsula is a treasure of mountains, beaches, scenic beauty and protected fauna and flora.

Anytime is a good time to tour the winelands in the Cape. Rated among the best in the world, the well-priced wines, and 16 diverse wine routes will leave devotees of the grape spoiled
for choice. Add to this the fabulous restaurants offering a gastronomic treat and quaint laid back towns to meander through; a couple of nights in the winelands are a well worth addition to any South Africa itinerary.
The Town of Hermanus offers the opportunity to see the magnificent Southern Right Whales. From June until November, Southern Right Whales are highly visible along the south coast of the Western Cape, making this the perfect time of year for a whale-watching trip. You don’t even have to go out on a boat to see them because Hermanus, overlooking Walker Bay, is considered to be the best land-based whale-watching spot in the world. Southern Rights often come in close to the shoreline, sometimes appearing just a few metres from the shore.
Lush with evergreen vegetation, beaches, rivers, lakes and friendly towns, the Garden Route is a region of extraordinary natural beauty. Play golf, dine, sunbathe and experience one-of-a kind marine, nature and adrenaline sports activities amid the dramatic mountain scenery and ancient forests of South Africa.
