South Africa Family - Rainbow Nation Overview
- 2012-10-01 - 2014-12-31
Get off the beaten track exploring South Africa’s beaches and bushland
South Africa conjures up images of incredible wildlife and magical coastline, which this holiday takes full advantage of whilst avoiding the crowds. After Kruger’s famous big game, cross the border into Swaziland to experience a low-key style of safari. Spend the rest of this unforgettable experience exploring the lesser-known region of KwaZulu Natal, whose national parks and nature reserves are teeming with wild animals. Finally, take in the rugged peaks of the spectacular Drakensberg mountains and return home with a suitcase full of memories.
South Africa Family - Rainbow Nation SummaryAdd to Shortlist
It doesn't always have the best reputation, but Johannesburg has fascinating, vibrant places to explore like Soweto, Alexandra, Rosebank Flea Market and its wonderful museums.
Rise early to go in search of birds of prey at a rehabilitation centre, with the chance to see many endangered species up close. Travel on to gaze in awe at the panoramic views offered from the aptly named God’s Window viewpoint along the Blyde River Canyon and continue to a former goldrush town to give gold panning a go.
Created to control diminishing animal numbers due to hunting, Kruger National Park became official in 1926 and is now deservedly one of Africa's premier safari parks.
Once the private hunting ground of the Swazi royal family, Hlane Royal National Park's vast expanse of bushveld offers an amazing opportunity to track elephants and endangered rhinos on foot.
St Lucia Estuary is home to thousands of varieties of birds, mammals and reptiles - with its most popular residents being the hundreds of hippos and crocodiles.
The highest mountain range in Southern Africa, Drakensberg - known locally as the Dragon Mountains - is home to an amazing array of flora and fauna.
Johannesburg is a sprawling city of remarkable contrasts: mansions stand alongside tin shacks and there are as many green parks as there are conglomerations of concrete.
