Hout Bay Harbour, Cape Town
Known officially as the Republic of South Africa it is the southernmost country in Africa. Bounded on the south by 2,800 kilometers of coastline and bordering the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans,
Renowned as one of the world's greatest destinations South Africa and Cape Town, with its snowy peaks, excellent surf, vibrant nightlife and semi-desert wildlife, is the country's coastal showcase. Magnificent walks, colourful flora and fauna and great wine tasting from some of the world's most renown vineyards.
Robben Island is the prison, which held former president Nelson Mandela for 27 years, and acts as a reminder for South Africa's political complexities; visit to absorb the history and to see brilliant views of Cape Town and Table Mountain. The latter has spectacular views of its own. Ascent is easy via cable car, but for those wishing to walk, the fairly flat hike is worth the effort and the reward for reaching its horizontal summit is a stunning panorama of the city, Atlantic Ocean and the rest of Africa.
Beyond is Kruger Park, one of Africa's most accessible and varied wildlife parks. Residing in its two million hectares are the 'Big Five' (buffaloes, rhinos, elephants, leopards and lions) and a safari tour is the best chance of seeing them. Visitors are also likely to come face to face with the park's other residents: giraffes, cheetahs and hippos. Along the coast there is more to see, take the Garden Route where lush mountainside forests give way to white sands and warm water, and head to the Plettenberg Bay for whale watching.
Whether on the savanna or sea, mountain or vineyard, South Africa is a destination that's all about diversity. Call Martins world Travel today for further details.
