There are some destinations, which leave you refreshed & rejuvenated at the end of a holiday. If you are looking for a unique holiday to see and do things with your loved ones, South Africa is the place for you. South Africa has everything from natural beauty to nightlife, shopping, spas, casinos, theme parks and a plethora of entertainment. It is so diverse that you would be spoilt for choice; from its rich heritage, culture, people & cuisine to its stunning landscapes, beaches, wildlife & national parks. Not for nothing is South Africa known as the Rainbow Nation.

The list of attractions here is endless but there are a few things, which exhibit the aura and fabric of South Africa and the first one which comes to mind is the Sun City, an epitome of luxury! There are a number of luxury star category hotels where you can enjoy butler services, fine dining, sparkling swimming pools, golf courses, spa treatments & experience South Africa's 'Kingdom of Pleasure'. From here, you can avail yourself of casinos, safaris, first class restaurants and accommodation, least of all, the Sun City Valley of Waves water park. With its choice of luxury and adventure for all ages, it is perfect for a family holiday in South Africa.

Now if you're in the mood for adventure in the wild then Kruger National Park is a fantastic place for all you wildlife fanatics. At nearly two million hectares, it is unrivalled in its diversity of species. Many luxury lodges dot the area, offering unparalleled experiences. Should you wish to indulge, a private dinner in an African riverbed or a hot air balloon safari with a champagne breakfast is arranged just for you. For the ultimate safari experience, these lodges offer a personalised service that allows you to tailor make your bush experience.

If travelling by train is your thing then the state of the art mode of transport- luxury trains are just what you need. Combining the finest elements of modern travel with the romance and elegance of a bygone era, luxury train travel through South Africa is, simply put, a journey of the Gods. Travel through dramatic landscapes at a smooth and stately pace whilst enjoying exquisite private luxury suites, impeccable service and fine dining. Luxury train travel lets you experience South Africa in a way you never have before, and soon you'll discover that it's the journey that matters as much (if not more) than the destination.

South Africa also offers a host of wonderful experiences such as shark cage diving & whale watching. There is also a vast array of wine estates, which offer accommodation to all the tourists who wish to delve into all about wine making & tasting. And for the city slickers, a visit to the Cape Town is a must. Renowned as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, this seaside playground has it all. In addition to that the self-driving holidays are truly a boon for all those who crave the purest form of tourism in South Africa. Explore mountains, skies, forests & the truly impressive Blyde River Canyon as you self-drive along South Africa's famous Panorama Route, which offers one breathtaking view after another. You could also drive along the Garden Route. Known as South Africa's Eden, the Garden Route traverses an area rich in natural beauty and charm. It runs parallel to a coastline featuring lakes, mountains, tall indigenous forests, amber -coloured rivers and golden beaches.

The best time to visit South Africa? Well, just about all year round. So get ready to bask in many colours of this beautiful Rainbow Nation.
