South Africa

South Africa is diverse country at the tip Africa- the world’s second largest and most populous continent. Bordered by Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Swaziland, and with a population of around 48 million, South Africa is truly part of the African continent, and eleven official languages are recognised in our Constitution.

With a long coastline that stretches more than 2,500 kilometres across two oceans, and a climate that ranges from desert to subtropical, South Africa is truly a unique place to visit.

The country has emerged from a turbulent past, and since the first democratic elections in 1994, unity is sought through diversity in a place where all people are now equal.

Durban

Durban is a natural paradise known for its beautiful stretch of sun-kissed beaches and subtropical climate, situated on the eastern coast of Africa.

 

The city focuses on providing visitors with a unique set of experiences that go beyond the beach and into the realm of Durban’s diverse culture, urban lifestyle and scenic diversity. The City of Durban is an elegant, mature and ambitious city. It is a trendsetter in offering great lifestyle, speckled with adventure activities, blessed with natural beauty and is an astonishingly comfortable city

Pietermaritzburg

Pietermaritzburg is the capital and second largest city in KwaZulu-Natal. One of its most attractive features is that it is a city in the country, surrounded by the forested hills and rolling pastures of the Natal Midlands.  Pietermaritzburg is one of the best-preserved Victorian cities in the world and one of South Africa's most historical places.

Johannesburg

Johannesburg - also known as Jozi, Jo’burg, eGoli & Joeys, and abbreviated as JHB - is the largest city in South Africa and the second largest city in Africa. The city is one of the 50 largest urban conglomerations in the world, and is also the world’s largest city not situated on a river, lake, or coastline. The city was established when gold was discovered in 1886 by George Harrison, an Australian prospector. Later that year President Paul Kruger proclaimed the findings open for public digging and Johannesburg rapidly expanded.

The city is a true melting pot of cultures and offers visitors an experience as unique and diverse as the city itself. Known as the business capital of the country, it is also a fascinating playground for leisure visitors. Large malls, such as Sandton City, Melrose Arch and the Mall of Africa cater for even the most dedicated of shoppers, while cultural centres such as the newly revived Maboneng precinct and Arts on Main offer a fresh new take on what’s hip and happening.  The friendly locals are known to work hard and play hard - the city offers a pulsating nightlife incorporating restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs and theatre.

Pretoria

Pretoria, known as the “Jacaranda City" due to its mauve blossomed tree-lined streets, is a quiet city in Gauteng. It features several natural and cultural attractions as well as significant old buildings and museums that are well worth exploring.

The town of Pretoria is often thought of as the quiet sister to nearby bustling Johannesburg. However, don’t let the sleepy nature of the city fool you. Pretoria has a beauty of its own and the slower pace of life is regarded as a bonus by residents. The city lies in a sheltered valley surrounded by the hills of the Magaliesberg range ensuring Pretoria’s temperatures are always a few degrees warmer than Johannesburg. Enjoying a subtropical climate with hot, rainy summers and cool, dry winters, Pretoria offers a perfect tour location.
