South Africa2021-06-20T08:24:02+00:00

The Southern tip of the black continent belongs to South Africa, the “little Europe of Africa”. This cultural and natural diverse and different country is one of the most visited destinations, and this by all kinds of travelers. But what makes this country so attractive for visitors? Most of all, for traveling and planning a trip this is probably the easiest country and has a lot to offer, enough material to create memories. There is something for every traveler here.

Ones footsteps, or rather, tire tracks, certainly lead to the most famous Kruger national park in the country´s East. Easy safari where you can see a lot of wildlife. After having a swim in the Indian ocean you could climb the Drakensberg mountains and go on a few hikes up there. There are beautiful spots scattered all over this country, connected by a fairly good road system. Why not start in the east and finish on the Table Mountain in the west with a view over Cape Town and the Atlantic ocean?

Culture, museums, historical monuments, sights, plenty of adrenaline filled activities, language courses, survival courses, bungee jumping, canoeing, riding, diving, flying, safaris – and that is just a fraction of what can be found here.

Do you just want to read about South Africa or would you like to experience it? Contact us, we will introduce you to a unique scenery, interesting people and unforgettable experiences.

Swaziland – eSwatini

At the Mozambican border there lies a little kingdom – eSwatini, and it certainly invites for a visit. The second smallest country of Africa, very rich in culture and history, lies a stone´s throw away from Kruger National Park. Don´t leave this country away, you can find a few treasures here and easily fill your itinerary – if you like activities and meeting locals, that is. You can find festivals all year round, most of these haven´t changed in 200 years, except for sun glasses and a mobile phone perhaps. Traditional colourful sarongs, a happy mood, dancing and music fill the villages and towns. It is such a sight to behold, one of these festivities just on the “other side of South Africa”. One day, look for the Big 5, the next day, go dancing with the locals at the Reed Dance, then go on a hike, see the world from nearly a bird´s eye view. Anybody missing adrenaline? Well, then hang into a zip line or a flying fox! The roads here are lined with colourful markets, with huge avocadoes, vegetables and lots of handmade artefacts and local products. Do you know that video of drunk animals like elephants or monkeys? Well, they ate fermented marula fruits – here in eSwatini it is a big event to harvest marula, they turn it into beer, liquor, oil, skin products, soap and much more.

 

The Kingdom of Lesotho

In the same heart of South Africa, high up in the Drakensberg, the dragon mountains, more than 1000m above sea level, lies a the smallest African kingdom. Time stands still here and this country has something to offer for the adventurous, in winter even with snow and gloves! Take your skis, you may need them! A normal 2×4 may not the best choice, rather choose a horse´s back and have a closer look at local life. A beautiful mountain scenery surrounds the intrepid traveler and offers a very authentic little country with a tough lifestyle.

Travelling in the country:

South Africa is the easiest destination for your first experience with Africa. Everything is reachable and available. In the surrounding countries, we recommend a 4×4, here in South Africa you don´t really need one. The whole country has a very good tarmac interstate network of all kinds of quality. Of course, for the more adventurous ones, there are still offroad tracks. Would you like to experience a proper safari? No problem, most of South Africa´s National Parks can be done in a normal car. A similar scenario applies to eSwatini as well, only for Lesotho we recommend better preparations and a reliable 4×4.
