South Africa
Located at the southern tip of Africa, South Africa is an impressive melting-pot of sunshine and beaches (some even have penguins on them), astonishing mountain scenery in the Drakensberg Area, sprawling national parks such as the Kruger National Park and small villages alternated with big thriving cities full of sharply dressed businessmen. Combine all of this with sunshine, braai and rugby and youve found a perfect travel destination........  

The Western cape, one of the nine regions, is mostly known for Cape Town an exciting city on a fabulous location.

Loaded with exhilarating nightlife and high end shopping, Cape Town is one of the most popular African destinations. Most high end accommodation is located here including 5-star hotels and timeshares. Cape Town hotels and timeshares offer visitors outstanding views of Table Mountain and are located right on the pristine beaches of this fantastic area.

Johannesburg is located in the Gauteng region and is a beautiful city to explore. The dualism of the past and the present, surrounded by impressive rock formations, stretching out into the outdoors, will undoubtedly make an everlasting impression on you. Pretoria the administrative capital is just north of Joburg.

Durban is on the shores of the Indian Ocean. The Indian community has left its stamp on the city and the atmosphere is quite different from that of the other big cities. Durban is an ideal base for exploring the Drakensberg with the possibility of venturing into 
Lesotho a small landlocked country surrounded completely by South Africa.

Coast line
The coast between Cape Town and Durban is dotted with great beaches, harbour towns and small but attractive national parks. Port Elizabeth is located about halfway between Cape Town and Durban and is the biggest town in the area. Between Port Elizabeth and Cape Town you find the Garden Route. Travel to South Africa and visit the Garden Route, one of the most scenic parts of South Africa. The area offers some of the most beautiful scenery and the widest variety of natures gems to be found anywhere in the world The Garden Route stretches for two hundred miles from Heidelberg SA in the west to the Storms River mouth in the east; from the vaulted peaks of the Outeniqua Mountains in the north to the rolling white waves of the Indian Ocean in the south.

Nelson Mandela
South Africa is probably also known to many people because of its Nobel prize winners, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu and not in the least because of its turbulent past (and to a certain extent, present). From Joburg, for example, it is only some kilometres to Soweto, which was mainly maintained because of discrimination laws and was the scene of a lot of needless shedding of blood. However, things change (or can change). Find out for yourself in this lovely country with its rich culture and hospitable people.
