Welcome to South Africa!
For a trip that gives you a mix of history, adventure, relaxation and beauty South Africa checks all the boxes. Incredible scenery and wildlife are matched by equally impressive towns and cities each with a complex history and their own distinct flavour. One thing is for sure, while you'll have plenty of opportunities to relax on beautiful beaches or savannas, you'd be best to bring a healthy dose of energy to make the most of what this diverse country has to offer.
From the Cradle of Humankind to urban nightlife, you'll be forgiven for thinking that time shifts in South Africa. The ancient and the modern co-exist with frequent reminders of who once walked the earth combined with invitations to take part in the newest adventure offered, be it jumping off buildings, swimming with sharks or getting up close and personal with one of Africa's Big Five.
This year South Africa plays host to one of the biggest games in the world, the 2010 FIFA World Cup. South Africa are the first African nation to host the Soccer World Cup with matches being played in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and 5 other host cities. From 11 June for 31 days this colourful and lively nation open their doors to the world and invite you in to take part as they showcase their magnificent country.

Table Mountain is impossible to ignore. Towering over the City Bowl of Cape Town, like a protective mother, the mountain is the pride and joy of Capetonians. And rightly so. With the amazing Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens nestled in the foothills, the breathtaking views over Table Bay and Robben Island from the top, and the revolving cars of the Cableway, Table Mountain is a must for anyone who is lucky enough to find themselves in South Africa’s Mother City.

We woke up in Cape Town to blue skies, perfect as we were heading to Table Mountain and knew it meant we were in for some great views from the top. Tickets in hand we headed to the cable car which can carry 65 people at a time, and you stand the whole way up as the car rotates 180°C. A very smooth ride, you didn’t even feel like you were moving.
