Your Destinations

Johannesburg

Discover one of the rainbow nation's finest cities - Johannesburg! Explore the city's streets and uncover the country's fascinating history and culture. You will fall in love with the city's artistic energy, and wealth of creative spaces and initiatives. Alternatively, if you fancy an adventure, the South African wilderness is just a short drive away!

Blyde River Canyon

As the third largest canyon in the world, the Blyde River Canyon is truly a sight to behold. Surrounded by impressively lush scenery and over 1000 species of flora, and home to the extraordinary Taita Falcon, this natural wonder is a must-stop spot in South Africa.

Kruger National Park

The Kruger National Park is arguably the finest game park in the world and is only an hour’s flight from Jo’burg.  Most lodges offer two game drives per day (one early in the morning and one in the evening) and your chances of seeing the “Big Five” - lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo - are excellent. This must be high on the list of "musts" for any visit to South Africa.
