South Africa is the kind of destination that will touch all of your clients’ senses in myriad ways. The country’s incredible diversity is a key attraction—from the deserts of the Kgalagadi to the lush green forests of Tsitsikamma, to the unspoiled beaches of the Wild Coast and the vibrant nightlife of Cape Town—it really does have it all.
South Africa is mercurial in nature, one moment visitors here will be exploring the origins of ancient man, the next they’re cage-diving with great white sharks and the next they’re drinking traditional beer in a lively township shebeen. South Africa really is a destination where they can experience it all.
As a people, South Africans are known for their humanity—they may have come from a past filled with separation and struggle, but their future is one of unity and possibility. In true African spirit, they understand the value of a warm South African welcome, and can’t wait to welcome visitors to the “Rainbow Nation.”
There are nine spectacular provinces for guests here to explore—nine incredibly diverse parts of the country that will open up their sense of possibility in ways they never thought possible. South Africa has a sensational climate (with over 300 days of sunshine per year in some parts) and is also extremely proud of the superb infrastructure—excellent roads, telecommunications, a great variety of accommodation options and world-class service.
South Africa truly is a ground-breaking destination for explorers and adventurers who want to experience life to its fullest. It’s a destination that allows you to scratch below the surface and experience endless possibilities, and to walk away the richer for having been here.
