South Africa is (roughly speaking) shaped like a huge triangle, bounded on two sides by ocean. Near Cape Point is the place where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. The long coastline offers superb sand beaches, varying from golden red to almost white in color. The sand is fine and soft, perfect for that relaxing beach holiday. Main beaches are watched over by trained lifeguards and shark nets ensure safety at all times for adults and children.
There is no greater thrill than seeing the wildlife of Africa close-up, in its natural habitat. It is an ultimate experience. Depending on your budget, you can choose from:
Private game reserves Where guests are pampered in ultra-luxury, allocated their own rangers, drivers and vehicles, and driven around.
Small game reserves and some National Parks Here accommodation is less luxurious, but very comfortable, and game drives are also arranged, but in small groups with other visitors. You can choose from campsites to lodges, and you can drive yourself around.
At the coast, a whale-watching trip - ocean safaris are even more fascinating than those on land.
