Start your vacation with a shot of adrenaline in the form of Johannesburg—the city that hasn’t slowed down since the Witwatersrand gold rush built it up in the mid-1800s. Delve into the painful history of this metropolis at the Apartheid Museum or Constitution Hill. Then, witness “Joberg” or “Jozi’s” cultural renaissance at a live Jazz concert in the Maboneng Precinct.
A peaceful farming community in South Africa’s northeast, White River is known for its tropical produce, exquisite handmade furniture, and the surrounding natural beauty. Discover the waterfalls, forested hills, and mighty rock faces that make the sweeping vistas of this town utterly unique. Explore the Lowveld National Botanical Garden or unwind at Rottcher Wineries. Get up-close to scaly creatures at the local reptile park and feel the pulse of local life at the Bagdad Farmers Market.
Take off on your safari adventure at Kruger National Park, South Africa’s famous wildlife reserve. This breathtaking savanna biome covers over 7,500 square miles and is famously home to the “Big Five” (buffalos, elephants, leopards, lions, and rhinos). However, these iconic creatures are just the beginning of the area’s fauna. As you drive the park, exotic beasts greet you at every turn. Antelopes, cheetahs, crocodiles, hippos, monkeys, and zebras are just some of the over 750 species roaming the Kruger grounds.
The safari continues at Makali Private Game Reserve, the wilderness sanctuary encompassing 100 square miles of pristine African bushveld in the Lowveld region of Limpopo. Drive the rolling hills of this ancient wildlife corridor connecting the Drakensberg Mountains to the Kruger National Park. Continue your quest to sight the “Big Five” until another glorious sunset calls you back to the lodge where it’s time for a pot of Umqombothi, South Africa’s quintessential corn brewed beer.
Ease back into cosmopolitan life in the natural beauty of Cape Town. Climb Table Mountain for a view of the Mother City’s glittering coast where the Atlantic and the Indian Oceans meet. Return to sea level to for a stroll down the V&A Waterfront to partake in the multicultural cuisine from Fish n’ Chips to Bunny Chow – a nod to the South Africa's Indian roots where a hollowed bread loaf is halved and filled with curry.
