South Africa is a lion, a grape, a flower, a painting and a smile. It stands out among African nations for its sheer diversity.
This land of perpetual sunshine offers urbane cities and old-world vineyards, spectacular vistas and thrilling big game drives. It is well endowed with natural attributes such as the fynbos, a botanically rich region known as the “Cape Floral Kingdom” noted for dramatic flowers such as the king protea. Two mighty oceans collide near the Cape of Good Hope, and great graceful sweeps of coastline stand uncrowded and uncluttered.
Private game reserves hark back to the era when the land was owned by elephant, leopard, impala and zebra. Malaria-free reserves are ideal for families with young children. Indeed, many of the extraordinary boutique hotels, lodges and inns are genuinely family friendly with specialized programs and activities catering to each family’s interests.
South Africa is also noted for its ancient rock art and cave paintings created by the original San people and dating back millennia. Ukhahlamba-Drakensberg Park, for example, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is one of just 23 sites worldwide granted this status on the basis of both natural beauty and cultural significance. It has 500 known sites of San rock art.
South Africa appeals to the connoisseur who delights in exceptional cuisine, historic architecture, world renowned wines, luxurious railway journeys and outstanding accommodations. From jazz and art galleries, to small craft markets with locally produced arts and textiles, to classic game-viewing safaris, this is the lovely composition that is South Africa.
