South Africa, for authentic experiences

A thriving destination, South Africa is a land of delightfully contrasting landscapes and atmospheres, from the beaches of Cape Town to the spicy dishes of Durban, passing through the Kruger National Park animal reserve. A holiday in South Africa will take you in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela, father of the Rainbow Nation.

A trip to South Africa is an opportunity to discover Cape Town, a sublime town located at the furthest point of the African continent. Overlooking the Atlantic, this megalopolis with 3 million inhabitants seduces with its scenery, beaches and its multiculturalism. A flight to Pretoria, the country’s capital, plunges you into places steeped in history. Johannesburg, the economic hub of South Africa, is known for its zeal, making it a shopping destination to recommend with its multiple malls. Durban, anchored to the Indian Ocean, is full of opportunities for night owls and lovers of cuisine from around the world.

A holiday in South Africa offers views of an astonishing variety of landscapes. From the Garden Route to the vineyards of the Cape Town region, the Zulu Villages to Kruger National Park safaris, the range of activities is as wide as it is rich! Try your hand at diving off the Elephant Coast and embark on an exciting trip to the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve. The great outdoors is yours!

The country we call the 'Rainbow Nation' is famous for its blend of traditions, its eleven official languages and its history. The homeland of Nelson Mandela has relentlessly preserved his struggle for freedom. Soweto, a township that is symbolic of the anti-apartheid battle, is a highly emotive stop-off. The strong British infiltration has left a heritage of quality infrastructure, which further improves the experience of a trip to South Africa.
