South Africa is a destination that offer some of the best Safari and beach combinations on the continent. Kruger National Park is home to classic safari country while Cape Town has more of a stately feeling. Then there is Drakensberg with its snow-sprinkled mountain peaks, the dry red dune-scapes of the Kalahari Desert, and the gorgeous Winelands country around Stellenbosch, with the paradisiacal beaches of Garden Route also being a favourite amongst tourists. South Africa is a true all-round destination which attracts more than their fair share of new and repeat visitors. South Africa is well suited to singles, couples, families and group tourists due to its affordability, well-equipped safari destinations, is malaria-free and has a beach holiday and/or city feel, depending on where you go.
The team at Sensational Africa recommend spending a few days touring Cape Town and its surrounds.
