South Africa's everyman appeal to visitors

22nd Jun 2012

A world class destination in its own right South Africa is also a gateway to the rest of the continent and the perfect stop-off for those travelling between Australia and the UK.

Boasting spectacular scenery, a sunny climate and cheap exchange rate South Africa offers visitors everything from wildlife safaris to surfing.

Trekking holidays are also popular with walkers taking on some of the world's most difficult hikes in the Drakensburg World Heritage Site in KwaZulu-Natal. The less active can also enjoy the stunning scenery though with Drakensburg offering comfortable mountain resorts suitable for family holidays.

Thrill seekers can go white-water rafting on the Tugela River or visit the Bloukrans Bridge, situated on the route between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth and famous for being the world's highest bridge jump. Quad and mountain biking, horse riding and water sports are also well catered for to those on specialist tours.

Cosmopolitan Cape Town is a favourite for those who enjoy city breaks and with Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe all nearby South Africa can be used as a gateway to the rest of Africa.
