South Africa luxury travel is the quintessential African experience. This is the perfect destination for first time visitors and families hoping to take a South African safari in luxury—full of beaches, cities, safaris, culture, and everything that goes into a memorable and multifaceted travel experience. Indeed, it is South Africa’s diverse offerings that continue to make it a favorite among both new and seasoned veterans of Africa.

From the hippos of the Limpopo River to the penguins of the Cape, South Africa is one of the most fascinatingly diverse countries on the planet. There are more types of terrain, more up-and-coming gourmet chefs, more wildlife concentrations, and more humbly welcoming people than most know how to process in their first visit. The wildlife roams freely in Kruger National Park, wildflowers grown incessantly on Cape Town’s Table Mountain and Cape Point, pristine beaches stretch for miles along the Cape, Southern Right Whales break waves along the rugged coastline of Hermanus, vibrant tribal customs live on in KwaZulu-Natal, and some of the world’s finest (and oldest) vintages come from the fertile soil of the Winelands.

Active travelers will delight with our luxury travel in South Africa options such as golf, mountain trekking, diving, and walking safaris, while those seeking quiet respite will delight in award-winning spas and private winery tastings. All the while, history comes alive with visits to Cape Town’s District Six and ancient caves in the Cederberg once inhabited by early man.
