Remarkable Cape Town
A contender for the most beautiful city on earth, Cape Town is nestled in between the tranquil scenes of the Atlantic Ocean and the awe inspiring size of Table Mountain. It is here where you will find one of the most progressive cultures anywhere in the world, centred around the local’s unique culinary dishes! We personally recommend the Jardine, a quintessential Cape Town dish, flavoured with the aromatic tones of ox tail. Yum!
It’s also hard to pass on a cable car trip to the top of the famous Table Mountain, where the views are – simply put – absolutely breathtaking, and definitely the highlight of any honeymoon packages.
Mind the sharks
Not far from the remarkable scenes that Cape Town has to offer is False Bay, home to Seal Island, shipwrecks, and sharks! Lured in by the mouthwatering prospect of dining out on one of the many great fur seals that inhabit the area, False Bay is home to one of the most densely concentrated populations of sharks anywhere on the planet. The sight of a great white shark thrashing around in the water is a must see for anyone on their South Africa holidays – just be careful to not fall in, though!
The famous Kop
At the heart of the western province of the country, is one of the most unique and diverse floral kingdoms anywhere in the world, dotted along the vast plains and unique features of the Karoo Koppies. Formed by a particular volcanic reaction, these flat-tipped mountains are steeped in beauty and history, especially the Spion Kop – the scene of one of the most bloody encounters of the Boer War. The koppies are a must see event for any South African Holiday Package Deals.
What would be South African holidays without paying a visit to Kruger National Park, the largest of its kind in the world. Here you will find the most famous creatures of Africa, living amongst a resolutely protected biosphere. With 21 lodges set across the park itself, you soon could be sleeping amongst the lions and elephants, as well as designated tour tracks, allowing you to get the full Kruger experience.
