South Africa - the great 'rainbow' nation - is a true Far & Wild favourite

One of the most geographically varied countries of the African continent

South Africa - the great 'rainbow' nation - is a true Far & Wild favourite, and one of the most geographically varied countries of the African continent. This magnificent country has something for everyone, from cosmopolitan Cape Town and the lush valleys of the Winelands, to the stunning Drakensberg Mountains that run unbroken for over a thousand kilometres and the many safari areas such as the Kruger National Park. In Kwazulu Natal you'll find the famous battlefields and beaches, and for whales, wild coastlines and culture head for a drive along the Garden Route.

When it comes to safaris, your options are endless, thanks to South Africa's staggering three hundred game reserves and national parks. There's everything from superb family safaris in malaria-free Eastern Cape and Madikwe wildlife reserves, to lodges offering the ultimate in luxury over in Sabi Sand and Timbavati Private Game Reserves, which are adjacent to the mighty Kruger National Park. Here it's possible to see cheetah, wild dog, hippo and giraffe, as well as all the usual suspects.

For something completely different there are luxury rail journeys across South Africa on Rovos Rail, the Blue Train and the Shongololo Express.

South Africa is the perfect place for a tailor-made holiday, safari, honeymoon, or self-drive holiday and if that’s not enough it can be easily twinned with Mozambique, Mauritius, the Middle East and Victoria Falls for something different.
