South Africa is a fascinating destination year round, with epic scenery, many different cultures and traditions, adrenaline-inducing adventure and lively cities. From spotting the big five to sipping chilled Chenin Blanc in the winelands, soaking up culture in the cities or simply basking in the sunshine on the beach, South Africa is about as diverse a location as you could ever hope to find. Its vast size means there are a number of international airports including O. R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, Cape Town International Airport and King Shaka International Airport in Durban. Major airlines operating flights to South Africa are British Airways, Air France and Virgin Atlantic.
Boasting a stunning location between craggy mountains and sparkling coastline, Cape Town is a truly magical destination to visit, with sweeping stretches of golden beach and a cosmopolitan vibe. Climb the dizzy heights of Table Mountain, then head to the V&A Waterfront for shopping, eating and entertainment or visit Robben Island Museum to put things in a historical context. At the heart of South Africa's commercial and financial activity, Johannesburg is a bold, thriving metropolis that serves up a cocktail of skyscrapers, shopping and culture with a seemingly limitless range of inspiring art galleries and museums. If you prefer to seek out nature's wonders, you will have endless options from the plains of Kruger National Park to the lakes and forests of the Garden Route.
