about South Africa

Exciting and enigmatic, few countries can match South Africa for sheer diversity.
Situated at the tip of Africa, the beauty of South Africa is witnessed through the smiles of friendly faces, the mosaic of cultures and cuisines, and the complex history that has shaped it. It is the natural splendor of this country that sets it apart.
South Africa's landscapes are made up of valleys, mountains, forests, deserts, coastlines, and grassy savannas that are breath-taking.  It is blessed to have an envious climate, a unique mix of beautiful landscapes, extraordinary fusion of modern development, vibrant culture and incredible wildlife.

cape town

Cape Town, often referred to as the Mother City, is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Crowned by the magnificent Table Mountain, Cape Town combines beaches, harbours and botanical gardens within a breathtaking setting. Proudly multicultural, its flourishing arts, dining, and nightlife scenes are proof of this modern metropolis' creativity and innovative spirit. With a distinct flavour of its own, the inner city is an eclectic mix of architectural styles that combine the past with the present in a mishmash of high-rise office blocks, Edwardian and Victorian buildings and narrow, cobblestone streets that give rise to fine examples of Cape Dutch design.

Rugged raw beauty, the beautiful Cederberg, named after the endangered Clanwilliam Cedar - a tree endemic to the area - is virtually synonymous with a series of impressive rock formations, untouched wilderness and remote beauty. There are fine examples of San rock art in caves and overhangs throughout the area.
The Cederberg has an exceptional botanical diversity, being part of the Cape Floral Kingdom of South Africa, and among the twisted rock formations, farmers cultivate the world-famous healthy rooibos tea, found only in the Cederberg of South Africa. Surprisingly, the rugged mountains of the Cederberg may seem an unlikely place to discover lush vineyards, but this unique high-altitude terroir is home to a handful of pioneering wine farms earning a global reputation for producing world-class wines.

wild coast

The Eastern Cape’s Wild Coast, as its name suggests, is one of South Africa’s least spoiled areas stretching from just beyond East London to Port Edward. In between are a series of remote, wild, ragged cliff-lined beaches, valleys, coastal forests, seaside villages and great expanses of undeveloped wilderness.  It’s also the homeland of Nelson Mandela who was born in the village of Mvezo on the Mbashe River. The Wild Coast is about hours spent on beaches, ambles along white sand, meeting cows at river mouths, Xhosa huts, coffee out of tin mugs, pot-holed dirt roads, cliff hikes, river canoeing, horseback rides and surfing.

route 62

Route 62 is modeled after the iconic US Route 66, made famous by the late, great Nat King Cole in the song of the mid 20th century. Travelers headed for the Garden Route will find that Route 62 offers a more scenic and slightly shorter alternative to the dull N2 highway between Cape Town and George. The road follows winding and spectacular mountain passes that slowly unfold before your eyes, leading to lush green valleys hosting crystal streams and framed by the distorted geological shapes and colours of rock faces dating from hundreds of millions of years ago.
Most striking about the R62 is the unbeatable scenery. This unique part of South Africa is characterised by red soil, stark cliff faces, rivers, orchards, and indigenous scrub. Fynbos, including the beautiful Protea, swirl gently as cars rush by on the highway, generously letting every passer-by experience their splendour.
