If you are looking for the holiday of a lifetime and you have a week or two to spare, you can book your vacation villa anywhere in South Africa and experience what this unique country is all about.
Here is a suggested itinerary for your dream holiday:
Fly in to Johannesburg
Daily flights from all over the world arrive at Oliver Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg. From here, you can choose to drive or conveniently catch a domestic flight to any number of holiday destinations.
Safari in Hluhluwe
If you want to get face to face with the Big Five game in South Africa, we recommend you book a safari in Hluhluwe. Leopard Mountain Safari Lodge is a four star multi-award winning game farm located high up in the wild secluded hills of the 23 000 hectare Zululand Rhino Reserve.
You can either take the easy six hour drive there from Johannesburg and explore the vast landscape of South Africa along the way, or hop on a one hour flight to Durban and then take a two and a half hour road trip to Hluhluwe. Visit for more information.
Delight in the Garden Route
After you’ve acclimatised to the sights and sounds of Africa and experienced the African bush, it is time to fly from Durban to George where you will arrive in the Garden Route, ready to delight in the beauty of Mother Nature’s gifts. Here you may even see elephants in a completely different environment.
The Garden Route is one of South Africa’s richest botanical treasures where travellers can lose themselves in the beauty of the region’s incredible mountain ranges, remarkable views, colourful landscapes with valleys, lakes, rivers and forests, as well as kilometres of beautiful, white sandy beaches.
Come play in Cape Town
Time to travel again – either take the scenic five hour journey to Cape Town by road or an hour-long flight from George to Cape Town International Airport. Once you arrive, you can marvel at the beauty of Table Mountain etched against the Atlantic Ocean.
Cape Town’s playground is varied and you will find anything that tickles your fancy – whether it is the natural beauty of the fynbos, the city lights or harbour delights, Cape Town’s warm heartbeat will keep you coming back for more.
Unwind on the West Coast
Take a breath of fresh air on the West Coast after your busy time in Cape Town. Drive an hour, two or three up along the coast to experience small towns, fresh seafood, deserted beaches and the sandy dry beauty of the wide West Coast.
If you can time it to be there in September, you will experience the colourful sight of small field flowers erupting on every open stretch of soil.
