South Africa

South Africa is extremely popular during our winter months as their summer months run between October and March, where temperatures can reach 40C.


South Africa has often been described as a magical place, it has an extremely diverse landscape with huge amounts of plant and animal life. There are great forests, swamps, deserts, savanna and snow capped mountains. It is no wonder that it has been championed as being a whole world in one country.


With its apartheid rules now over, South Africa , once off the beaten track for many, is starting to be rediscovered and there a real sense of excitement surrounding the place. Just be aware that there are still problems with poverty, violence and AIDS in certain areas, but things are certainly looking on the up.
