Southern Africa has it all – safaris, wine and whale watching

South Africa combines centuries-old wine regions, iconic surf beaches and cosmopolitan cities. Our Travel Designers have a portfolio of Southern Africa safari holidays that showcase the region’s diversity and natural beauty.

The Sabi Sands game reserve near Kruger National Park boasts a population of lions, rhinos, African elephants, leopards and rare birdlife. Spot elusive cheetahs at the private Phinda game reserve, or take the family to malaria-free Madikwe reserve.

Soar over Victoria Falls in a helicopter or let go of the edge in an exhilarating gorge swing. Nearby Zambesi National park is game-viewing paradise. See elephants while canoeing the Zambezi river or enjoy a picnic on the banks.

Post-safari, wind down in Stellenbosch with its 200 wine farms and estates, dramatic mountain peaks and ultra-luxurious lodges. Blend your own wine or sip on award-winning harvests with notes from a sommelier. From September, head to Hermanus on the garden route coastal drive to follow majestic southern right whales along a cliff path.
