Have you ever dreamed of exploring an African destination with the freedom to travel independently and at your own pace? Planning a South Africa trip or tour will give you just this.
Whether you want to visit all the well-known tourist destinations or if you wish to explore off the beaten track, then this is the destination of choice on the African continent.
The county's road network is truly immense and one of its most valuable assets.
All the main routes are generally well maintained and dotted with small towns, or 'Dorpies' as they are known locally, that serve as watering holes for the thirsty traveller.
The main South Africa holiday tourist route stretches from the Johannesburg in the north, round to Durban on the east coast and down to the Garden Route ending in the iconic 'Mother City': Cape Town which is a must-see destination on any South Africa road trip.
Every road trip has to have its basic ingredients: adventure, excitement, relaxation and most of all...
The open road! All of this South Africa has to offer, and more! Culture, Safari and adventure abound in this vast and diverse country.
Whether you simply wish to follow the Garden Route on the south coast or wind your way through the northern bushveld - so much is possible! For adrenaline junkies there is hiking up or abseiling from Table Mountain, and shark cage diving.
There are many historical sites for those interested in battles of centuries past and excavation sites for those who want to peek further into the continent's pre-history.
If you're hoping for some amazing night life - then main towns such as Cape Town are just for you.
If you are travelling along the garden route you could stop off for a spot of whale watching in the lively coastal town of Hermanus.
Each year between June and December, Southern Right Whales flock to the shallow waters around the South African coast to mate, and Hermanus is an excellent place to view the mammals at play in the ocean.
It also boasts a fine array of fish restaurants which overlook the sea and are the perfect place to relax between stops on your South Africa holiday.
There is a wealth of wildlife National parks scattered around the country, and many people incorporate a visit to one on their South Africa trip in hope of spotting lions, elephants and rhinos.
When you have had your fill of South Africa safaris, why not drive to Stellenbosch, a famous wine region which boasts rolling vineyards, fantastic restaurants and a buzzing community.
There are many wine tours running every day which will often take you to the nearby town of Franschhoek which is also famed for its wine production and a fantastic place to fit into your South Africa holiday.
There truly is a South Africa road trip for everyone; from the excitement of spotting the Big 5 in Kruger National Park with your family to relaxing on one of the many Blue Flag status beaches, and so much in between.
