Summer Vacation in South Africa

South Africa is a land of plenty - plenty to do, plenty to eat and plenty places to visit! It is a country of sunshine and therefore a popular holiday destination for visitors from Europe and other colder destinations too. Your vacation in South Africa can take many forms; fly in for a short visit or do an extended safari covering a larger part of the land. Tailored options, for your ideal SA tour, are well within reach!

A summer vacation in South Africa often means a seaside visit and there are many options to choose from. The first choice for many is Cape Town with its pristine beaches: Blouberg, Clifton, Llandudno or Camp's Bay to mention a few. Along the West Coast there are also the mesmerising and idyllic holiday towns of Melkbosstrand, Yzerfontein and Langebaan. These beaches are frequented for long walks on the sand, swimming, surfing, kite flying and a variety of other water sports - including on a professional level! Go for a vintner's lunch at one of the wine farms, or merely indulge in wine tasting. From there, take the road to Knysna and George along the much-loved Garden Route. Don't forget to stop for coffee and a bite to eat at one of the many small towns with their great scenery and friendly local communities.

KwaZulu Natal has many beaches too. The ones on the north coast are the popular ones, but the south coast beaches have their own fans too. To the north of Durban visitors can go to Umhlanga beach or to the south visitors can enjoy beaches in the Margate and Port Shepstone area. A vacation in South Africa can include visits to the game parks of the region, of which there are quite a few countrywide - from the famous Kruger Park, to Pilansberg among others.

A vacation in South Africa does not mean beaches only, though. The Drakensberg mountain range is majestic and well-known for its hiking routes; this includes shorter daily hikes and longer ones lasting a few days. Get away from busy city life to recharge your batteries in the natural environment of the iconic 'berg' region. Bring bicycles, binoculars and swimming gear too! Holiday resorts and game parks are situated on the Free State side of the mountain at Golden Gate as well as on the KwaZulu Natal side. Other mountains worth visiting are the Magaliesburg, Waterberg and Lebombo mountains. Look for cable cars and tree top canopy tours in mountainous and bush terrain for unforgettable views.

When considering your ideal summer vacation in South Africa thorough planning is critical. For assistance with tailoring a package to your budget and preferences, contact Journey into Africa today!
