South Africa is a vast land of overwhelming beauty and spectacular contrasts, making it one of the best safari destinations in the world. A mere 10 hour flight from the UK, South Africa is closer than you think. Most international flights depart in the evening, arriving early the following morning – which means after a meal and drinks, you can snooze away the miles until breakfast and landing time. South Africa's accommodation is varied in character and style, so there is something for everyone from boutique city hotels to remote safari lodges on a holiday to South Africa.


"South Africa offers everything from an incredibly diverse geography, a fascinating history and wow-factor safari lodges to ultra-stylish boutique hotels and a gastronomic revolution in food that puts Cape cuisine up there with some of the best food in the world!" - Ruth Miller, Africa Specialist

South Africa Holiday Advice From Turquoise Holidays

South Africa offers more than any other country in Africa. The list of activities on offer is endless. Our only advice is to try not cram it all in, and do a couple of trips over a period of time instead. The Garden Route, Cape Town and the Safari destinations all warrant at least a week of your time, so try to see them all in detail if you can. South Africa also has an array of hidden secrets and activities - Shark Diving, Bungee Jumping, flower fields, quirky Cape Town actives etc. So please do ask us what might interest you – we love finding the right activities for you.
