Holiday Hot spots

South Africa

South Africa is my favourite place on the planet! I specialised for 20 years selling this wonderful diverse part of the world and would still keep going back.

A year round destination due to its varying regional climates and wildlife opportunities; although exactly where you want to visit and why you’re travelling can determine the best time to go.

At the moment the exchange rate is so good; a three course dinner with wine in a good restaurant will cost around £20 per head; a beer (Castle is my favourite) less than £1!

Being five times as big as the UK there’s so much to see and do. Top of most peoples lists are Cape Town and one of the world-class safaris such as Kruger but there are many more things to enjoy as well as the incredible scenery, beautiful beaches, great food and amazing wildlife.

– Visit the Winelands -Tour the Garden Route – Experience a Township Tour – Walk the Drakensberg Mountains – Learn about the Zulu Battlefields – Go on a Whale watching trip or cage dive with Great White Sharks – Choose from a selection of luxurious rail journeys such as the Blue Train –

South Africa holds endless possibilities; with fabulous 5 * and boutique hotels, B&Bs, apartments and lodges to choose for your stay.

Why not combine your stay with Mauritius, Seychelles or Dubai?

You can fly direct from London Heathrow with British Airways, South African Airways and Virgin, or with great connections from Manchester and Newcastle with Emirates, Ethiad and Qatar.
