Adventures in South Africa

There is little doubt that the 2010 Fifa World Cup opened the globe's eyes to just how wonderful a South Africa holiday can be. However, there is far more to the rainbow nation than could ever have been relayed in sports broadcasts - and the best way to discover everything this truly special country has to offer is going on a South Africa tour.

Adventure holidays to South Africa offer a truly breathtaking mix of the urban and suburban, allowing tourists to check out spectacular cities such as Johannesburg within a few hours of viewing wildlife on safari. Few other places on the planet can boast so many spectacular animals in their national parks - and the lions, elephants, zebras and giraffes are a huge draw for those on South Africa holidays. Kruger National Park is a popular attraction during a South Africa tour - covering almost two million hectares, it is home to 147 mammals, more than 500 birds and 336 different types of trees. Addo Elephant National Park is another wonderful place to visit, while Tsitsikamma National Park's coastal position makes it perfect for checking out marine creatures.

Those who love a long, bracing hike will also enjoy South Africa tours, as the Drakensberg Mountains offer some of the world's most spectacular views.

Meanwhile, when it comes to urban adventure, South Africa holidays offer experiences like no other. While your trip is likely to begin in Johannesburg, Cape Town is the highlight of many travellers' South Africa trips. Along with exploring its bars and restaurants, a climb up Table Mountain is a must on  your South African travels. The view of the city from this majestic peak will ensure your South Africa tour leaves memories that will last a lifetime.


Family Holidays in South Africa


Many youngsters will be intrigued by the history of South Africa, whether learning about the Zulu tribes or its political and social history. The best way to bring their school lessons to life is to take them on a South African family holiday and allow them to see the wildlife, mountains and monuments for themselves. 

Teenagers will love getting stuck into an adventure during a South Africa tour, which can include trips to a traditional Zulu village, hiking in the Blyde River Canyon or snorkelling in the Kosi Bay Nature Reserve. Meanwhile, there are few better places on earth to catch sight of elephants, lions or giraffes than Kruger National Park.

With such a range of activities on offer, it is important that youngsters are prepared and that parents adequately assess their abilities. But a fit, healthy and sensible teenager will relish the challenges and experiences that a South Africa holiday brings.
