South Africa & Vic Falls

Cape Town has long been a focal point for South African travel, due to its myriad of vibrant attractions. But travel north or east into the dry rolling hills, and you find an area with more than 300 vineyards. South African Winelands are one of the World's largest wine producers attracting oenophiles with vintages that range from Sauvignon blanc to its famed red Pinotage. Unsurprisingly, the region is a hotbed of first-class restaurants as well. 

In the north-west corner, Sabi Sand Game Reserve lies adjacent to the famous Kruger National Park. Take two full-days safari, to see wildlife that will include the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino). There will also be time to indulge in spa treatments and enjoy elaborate gourmet meals paired with South Africa's best wines. Finally, travel to see the amazing Victoria Falls that plunges into a series of basalt gorges, also known for many activities here.

Getting There Johannesburg with its O.R. Tambo International Airport is the air transport hub of Southern Africa and is linked to the rest of the world by major airlines. Other international airports are located in Cape Town and Durban, but few flights from Europe or America fly directly to either destination. There is a good network of internal flights.

Travelling around South Africa is mostly by car and a good range of car rental companies are available. The road system is amongst the best in Africa. However, travelling off the beaten track to the national parks is virtually impossible by public transport. This is mostly organised by local tour operators.

When to go The best time to visit Kruger and most wildlife parks in South Africa is from May to September. This is the dry season and animals congregate around waterholes and rivers. The climate of South Africa is generally mild throughout the country with warm, sunny days and cool nights. There's really not a bad time to visit, but winter is a good time (especially October) if you are going for a safari – grass is short, and the animals tend to gather around watering holes.

In winter, due to altitude, temperatures drop to the freezing point, and in places even lower. Snow is a possibility June-August in the mountain areas. It generally rains in the afternoon during the summer (November-February) everywhere in the country except in the Cape Province, where it rains during the winter.
