South Africa consists of these provinces: Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, Western Cape, North West, KwaZulu Natal, Limpopo, Gauteng, Free State and Mpumalanga.
Just north of East London starts the famous Wild Coast, one of the most unspoilt area’s in South Africa. Here you can still find traditional, rural Xhosa villages. Waterfalls, steep-sided gorges, rolling hills, rivers and beaches form a spectacular coastline. This is the Africa completely missed by the tourist who restricts his stay to Cape Town or the Garden Route. Many Guest House, B&B's and Hotels are situated on or close by the beach.
The main attractions here are Mountain Zebra National Park, a terrific place to see herbivors in a dramatic setting of arid plains and flat topped Mountains, and the 18th century Cape Dutch town of Graaff Reinet. East London, the country’s largest river port has a good surf beach and spectacular bay. The north-west part of the province is dominated by the empty spaces of the Karoo.
Addo Elephant National Park and some private reserves like Amakhala and Shamwari, an hour’s drive inland, are the only reserves in the southern half that offer serious game viewing and are malaria free all year round. The coastline of the Easter Cape stretches from the spectacular, subtropical Wild Coast in the north, through Port Elizabeth to the forests of the Tsitsikamma National Park.
The Northern Cape is off the beaten track, but the tourist will be rewarded with stunning panorama’s and complete silence. It is a land of many diverse cultures, of frontier history and brave missionaries. It also has countless challenges for the adrenaline junkies, hikers, hunters and 4x4 adventurers. It has impressive parks with endless game and one of the most unique flora in the world.
Being the largest province, covering one-third of the nation’s landmass, the Northern Cape is not an easy region to travel. It is dominated by heat, empty spaces, aridity and huge travelling distances. Its main attraction is the desert, its wildlife, diamonds and flowers.
And yet many would-be-travellers to this province ask what can we do, what can we see?
Accommodation is easily found in luxury Guest Houses, hotels, B&B's and Self Catering apartments.
From Cape Town it is easy to visit the other attractions of the Western Cape, the vineyards in the Winelands, the ostriches in Oudtshoorn, Cape of Good Hope and the Garden Route. Further away the Little Karoos dry interior is punctuated by Afrikaner villages.
In the north, on the border with Botswana, Madikwe Game Reserve is one of South Africa’s gems, a huge Big 5 park with upclass accommodation. All Big 5 can be spotted here, plus the endangered wild dog. It is a malaria free area, making it a good option for children.
It’s one of the most visited province’s in South Africa but most tourists flock in Sun City and the Pilanesberg Game Reserve. But it can be very rewarding to explore the rest of this province.
More off the beaten track is South Africa’s interior with its open horizons, isolated villages and fast vistas. The North West province extends from Gauteng to the Botswana border and the Kalahari desert.
The Drakensberg is the ideal spot for kloofing, rafting, hiking, absailing, mountain biking, ballooning and rock climbing.
Dullstroom, a chic, attractive town is in the heart of trout country. If you are an angling aficionado, this is the place to be. Many Guest Houses offer all-inclusive fishing trips.
Though Kruger National Park is the province’s biggest draw card, you can experience the thrill of Big 5 game safari’s in many private parks as well. Safari’s can be booked through us and we can reserve your Bed and Breakfast accommodation, from low budget self catering apartments to 5 star safari lodges.
A visit to Kruger Park can easily be combined with a trip into KwaZulu Natal. South Africa’s most African province has all this continent is famous for by the tourist. Wildlife, culture, pristine beaches and the towering, covered in mist, peaks of the Drakensberg range. Kwazulu Natal offers superb bird watching and game parks.
In the north, Maputaland, a patchwork of wetlands, wilderness, Zulu villages and freshwater lakes, meets the sea in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park (previously known as Greater St. Lucia Wetlands Park), one of South Africa’s World Heritage sites.
For hiking and kloofing, the Drakensberg Mountains are the best spot. Crystal clear lakes and rivers, giant peaks and waterfalls form the scenery while walking, mountaineering or hiking.
Durban, South Africa’s major harbour is a mixture of cultural flavours, derived from Zulu, Indian, Arabic and white communities, one of the few cities in South Africa worth a visit in its own right.
Half a days drive takes you to Mpumalanga or Limpopo. Limpopo tends not to feature on the standard tourist intinerary but the empty spaces of this province have their own unique “go safari “appeal . There is plenty to satisfy both the wannabe pioneer and indulged tourist.
At the foot of the Waterberg lies Bela-Bela and country side, waiting to be discovered by all adventure addicts. The indigenous bushveld vegetation of the area with breathtaking scenes is the ideal setting to experience nature.
The mountains of Haenertsburg, Magoebaskloof and Agatha are linked via the spectacular Georges Valley which comprises indigenous forests, cascading waterfalls, placid lakes and craggy kloofs.
The area around Tzaneen produces the majority of the country's subtropical fruits and winter vegatables. The mountanious landscape, the subtropical climate, the lush indigenous vegetation which alternates with plantations, and the largely unspoilt natural environment, make this pictoresque area one of the most attractive recreation and tourist areas in South Africa.
Phalaborwa and Hoedspruit are the main entrances to the northern and middle part off Kruger National Park, therefore Bed and Breakfast or other accommodation can be found easily. The safari industry here is divers, bushwalks, guided BIG 5 safari tours, microlight/ helicopter flights and a large variety of other activities are offered.
Less than an hour from Johannesburg, the Magalies Mountains offer ample opportunities for hiking, horse riding and nature trailing. Many people from Johannesburg spend their weekends and holidays here, so accomodation is varied and plentiful.
50 Km up north Pretoria has a completely different atmosphere. Being South Africa’s administrative capital it is filled with civil servants and students from around the World.
Johannesburg has a reputation among both tourists and South Africans as a place to be avoided, but many are seduced by its energy and vibrancy. When you are looking for a more "african" experience head for the eastern provinces.You will probably arrive at Oliver Tambo Airport, Gauteng
Travellling southeast you should stop at the Basotho Cultural Village and Phuthadijhaba. Here it is possible to hike up the highest plateaus of the Drakensberg.
The highlight of the Eastern Highlands is Golden Gate Highlands National Park, part of the Drakensberg, not famous for its wildlife but for the red sandstone outcrops, this is one of Africa’s best hiking spots.
The Free State is an ideal place for a farm- or homestay, a self-catering camping trip or a multinight hiking trail. The high-lands with their eroded sandstone hills dominate the eastern part, to the west the landscape consists largely of rolling grass- and farm-lands.
For many tour operators Mpumalanga ( Place of the Rising Sun ) is the main gateway to Kruger and the Blyde River Canyon, the third largest canyon in the world, after the Grand Canyon in the United States and the Fish River Canyon in Namibia. It is the second largest canyon in Africa, and is known as one of the great wonders of nature on the continent.
Many tourists regard Mpumalanga as a doormat for Kruger National Park, but it is well worth visiting in its own right.'Pilgrims Rest, Sabie, Graskop, Hazyview and Waterval Boven are just a few of the places you should not miss. These towns offer accommodation in game lodges, self catering units and upmarket B&B's and Guest Houses.
The Long Tom Pass, God's Window, the Three Rondavels, Bourke Luck Potholes, many vistas and waterfalls make beautifull stops on your way from Johannesburg to Kruger, KwazuluNatal or Limpopo.
