Sixteen Day South Africa Tour Package

Getting There

Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban are international entry points into South Africa from outside of Africa. Airlines servicing these flights include and are not limited to South African Airways, British Airways, Lufthansa and Swiss Air.

Land & water
Main entry points into South Africa from other African countries include Botswana (Ramatlabama), Lesotho (Ladybrand and Ficksburg), Mozambique (Komatipoort), Namibia (Vioolsdrif), Swaziland (Mbabane and Golela) and Zimbabwe (Beitbridge).

When to Go

Summer is from December to February and can be uncomfortably hot, especially in the lowveld, but the best time to be in Cape Town. Although the summers are hot, the cold Atlantic which surrounds the Cape Peninsula is not for swimming but rather sun-bathing. If you enjoy swimming in the ocean, rather than lazing in the sun, you should be in Durban where the water is warm.

Spring is from September through to December and is the best time to view the wild flowers of the West Coast, north of Cape Town.

Winter is mild and is from June to August. This would be the best time for wildlife viewing in the Kruger National Park area.

Highlights not to Miss

The Peninsula
This is where you will find Cape Town, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The area is dominated by mountains (Table Mountain in particular which reaches 1000 m) with sheer cliffs and surrounded by mountain walks, vineyards and beaches.

There are three main towns which create the winelands. They are Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franshhoek which are surrounded by endless wine farms and rolling mountain ranges. On this route you can go on wine tours and taste the wines of South Africa, which are comparable to the best in the world.

Garden Route
This route stretches along the ocean from Cape Town through to Port Elizabeth. Along this route you will find many interesting and the most beautiful towns, with views across the Atlantic and green rolling hills in the background. Hermanus is where you can spot the whales from June to November when they come to the shores. Other towns along this garden road include Mosselbay, Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and the Tsitsikamma Forest, each with its own unique attractions.

Kruger National Park and Sabi Sands
The Kruger Park is one of the biggest, oldest and best wildlife parks in the world. There is a great variety of animals and with the road infrastructure not viewing any animals is unlikely. With a lower budget you can get the wilderness experience without the luxuries of the private game reserves, of which the Sabi Sands is the most infamous. Private wildlife reserves offer luxury accommodation and game drives which take you into the heart of the wilderness. These game drives are well organised and the lodges offer gourmet meals, you will definitely not leave starving.
