DESTINATION HIGHLIGHTS

  • Johannesburg: Johannesburg, affectionately known as “Jozi” or “Joburg”, is a bustling mega city that melds people from all walks of life. You can eat some of the finest cuisine in the upscale Sandton and Rosebank neighborhoods or marvel at the beautiful graffiti art and eclectic vibe of Maboneng Precinct. Joburg also has some of South Africa’s most historically significant sites and museums – including Soweto Township (which was the home of Nelson Mandela and Bishop Desmond Tutu) and the Apartheid Museum.
  • Cape Town: Also called “The Mother City”, Cape Town is a coming-together of cultures, cuisines and landscapes. Considered one of the most beautiful places in the world, there’s nowhere quite like Cape Town, a singularly beautiful city crowned by the majestic Table Mountain National Park and flanked by the dramatic coastline and ocean.
  • Cape Winelands (South African Wine Country): The “Napa Valley” of Africa can be found right outside Cape Town – and cities like Franschhoek and Stellenbosch coalesce the old-world nostalgia with the new world luxuries in a delectable combination of wine, scenery, and fresh delicious food!
  • Kruger National Park or a nearby Private Game Reserve (Sabi Sands, Timbavati, etc.): Not only have several Wildlife Specials (National Geographic, Animal Planet, BBC, etc.) been shot here, but some of the most popular wildlife videos on the Internat have been shot in and around Kruger National Park – the undisputed wildlife haven in South Africa. If you want to see Africa’s Big 5 Mammals (Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant, and Buffalo) in their natural environment, then you must visit Kruger or one of the private reserves neighboring this national park.
