South Africa: Wild Coast & Garden Route

“For three weeks, I travelled through South Africa to find out how you can have the off-the-beaten-track experience in this modern Africa! Zuid-Afrika is nieuw terrein: goed georganiseerd, perfecte wegen, mooie accommodaties en bovenal: stápels pensionado’s. Niet echt een plek voor een off the beaten experience. Or is it?"

– Charlie

About South-Africa

Where your southern neighbor throws Flemish fries in the fryer, ours puts the fire in the braai! South Africa is seen by many as the ultimate holiday destination in Sub-Saharan Africa and with good reason! With the perfect mix of African adventure and strong European (Dutch!) influences, this is the African entry point.

The gigantic country has a diverse arsenal of landscapes, views, activities, and impressive history. And with a coastline of over 2800 kilometers, you will find plenty of hidden beaches. In addition, South Africa is the second-largest wine importing country in the world after France. Do I need to say more? The cherry on the cake of any South African adventure is of course the mother city of Cape Town or cultural Johannesburg!

We have discovered the hidden gems for you and would love to show them to you. Any questions? Our South Africa specialists are happy to help: request a free quote or start a chat!

The savannahs and their wildlife cannot be taken for granted. Africa’s population is growing rapidly and human-wildlife conflicts are the order of the day. We traveled to northern Kenya to see the different types of conservancies and develop new sustainable experiences.
