WHY VISIT SOUTH AFRICA
There’s an old slogan that goes ‘South Africa is a world in one country’ and it’s not hard to see why. The balmy Indian Ocean buffets the sub-tropical east coast while the mercurial Atlantic washes up on the west. Cape Town and Johannesburg are world-class cities with every mod con while, surrounding them, are pristine wildlife areas where time has stood still. The sheer diversity of things to see and do here makes it popular with honeymooners, adventurers and multi-generational families. Landscapes range from dense Afromontane forest – home to elephants, jackals, bushpigs, porcupines and warthogs – to the Cape floristic region, which comprises 9 000 species of plants. When spring arrives in about September, they bloom into blankets of intense yellow, orange, purple and white flowers to make an incredible display.
