To South Africa

The Big Five

Kruger National Park is one of South Africa’s best known nature reserves. Go on safari and spot leaping antelopes and elegant zebras. Feel the adrenalin rush when you encounter the Big Five: the leopard, rhinoceros, lion, elephant and buffalo. Another very impressive, albeit somewhat different sight is the Drakensbergen mountain massif. This rugged mountain range offers great hiking through valleys and to waterfalls and impressive rock faces. Always wanted to go diving with a great white shark? Then Gansbaai is the place to be. Here you can go underwater and come eye to eye with one of the most feared predators of the sea. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to South Africa now!

In the footsteps of Nelson Mandela

South Africa has a lot more to offer than safaris. In Johannesburg, enjoy a guided bike ride through the impressive suburb of Soweto and visit the touching Apartheid Museum to learn everything about the life of Nelson Mandela. Take a boat tour to Robben Island, the island off the Cape Town coast where Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years. Nestled at the foot of the beautiful Table Mountain, Cape Town is a lively city with great nightlife and sunbathing on the beach. Drive from here to Boulders Beach near Simon’s Town to watch the waddling penguins or taste wines in the region around Stellenbosch. Cheers!
