South Africa's scenic wonders are legendary. From Table Mountain to God's Window, the mountains, forests, coasts and deserts are all sure to delight you, but South Africa also offers adventure, wonderful food and wine, intriguing culture, a fascinating history and, of course, magnificent wildlife!

Many visitors opt to begin their South Africa adventure in the Western Cape Province and with much to explore, it's easy to see why. There's beautiful Cape Town with its matchless setting beneath Table Mountain; the Cape Dutch architecture, graceful old towns and vineyards of the Winelands; whale watching in Hermanus; and not forgetting the stunning views of the iconic Garden Route.

Known as South Africa's 'wild' province, the Eastern Cape is full of surprising contrasts from wide sunny beaches and expanses of bush and forest to first class game reserves with abundant wildlife. The province is also steeped in history and was one of the centres at the forefront of the fight for democracy in South Africa.

South Africa's Garden Province, KwaZulu Natal, has a stunning 370 mile Indian Ocean coastline that rises up inland to the dramatic heights of the Drakensberg Mountains. The beaches are glorious and benefit from the warmth of the Indian Ocean; the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park is one of the best places in which to see endangered rhino; while lovers of history will find their home in the battlefield sites of the Boer Wars.

Highlights of the North West Province include Sun City Resort, a true oasis of pleasure and entertainment for the whole family, or the natural wilderness of Pilanesberg National Park and the Madikwe Game Reserve, both home to a fascinating variety of wildlife.

Speaking of wildlife, pursuit of 'Big Five' game is an important part of any South Africa holiday and Kruger National Park is the most well-known with safari adventures galore amidst spectacular bush scenery in arguably one of the finest game parks in the world.

Let Premier Holidays create the perfect South Africa holiday for you.

Best time to go

South Africa lies in the southern hemisphere, so the peak of summer is February and the heart of winter falls in August. Spring and autumn are usually pleasantly warm and sunny. While summer is delightfully hot it’s also when the most rainfall occurs, however this is usually a brief, heavy downpour so rarely rains all day. The main exception is the Western Cape which has rain in the winter and hot, dry summers. The high lying areas of the interior can be chilly in winter.

Travelling with children

Parents travelling with children into or out of South Africa may be asked to show the child’s unabridged full birth certificate, and where only one parent is accompanying, parental or legal consent for the child to travel (eg an affidavit from the other parent, a court order or – if applicable – a death certificate). You should travel with these documents in case you’re asked to provide them. There are other requirements for children travelling unaccompanied or with adults who are not their parents. For more information, contact the South African High Commission or the South African Department of Home Affairs
