Nowhere else in the world can you experience the largest wild sea or land animals within only 3 days’ worth of tours in and around Cape Town. On top of this, you get to marvel at one of the wonders of the world – Table Mountain in its full glory.

Table Mountain

Its majesty towers high above the roof tops of Cape Town. It’s the largest metropolis directly located at a national park, stretching up to the Cape of Good Hope, along breathtakingly beautiful coastal roads. The Cape peninsula lies on the border of two oceans, the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean and these two oceans meet at Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of Africa. Cape Agulhas is only a 90 minute drive from Gansbaai. Many holiday makers make a stop at these sites on their way to the Garden Route.

With an area of 1, 2 million km², approximately 50 million habitants and its capital Pretoria, this unique country is also lovingly referred to as the rainbow nation, due to its diverse array of cultures.

South Africa Travel

With regards to the various climatic zones, it is interesting how climate and temperatures rise along the coast when heading eastward. South Africa is a country that promises plenty of sunshine on account of its unique geographical position.

Due to its diverse and ever-changing landscapes, it has grown into a popular holiday destination with enthusiasts from all over the world. The varied combination of pristine beaches and sight-seeing attractions along the coastal areas, over rugged mountain ranges and jungle like forests, up to extreme semi-deserts of the little and great Karoo, leave little left to be desired when visiting the country. In the North Eastern part of the country, approximately 4 hours drive from Johannesburg, you will find the most important highlight of your vacation – the Kruger National Park. This game reserve stretches over the two provinces Mpumalanga and Limpopo along the borders to Mozambique, Zimbabwe and the legendary kingdom of Swaziland.

Not forgetting the magnificent Garden Route, which is a fantastic holiday destination throughout the year. The heart of the Garden Route is Knysna, a small town arranged around a massive lagoon. A little further you will find Plettenberg Bay, also a well-known whale watching town, and home to schools of Hammerhead sharks. Along these coastal stretches, large numbers of dolphins can be spotted as well.

Did you know that monkeys, elephants and dolphins can recognise their reflection in the mirror!
