SOUTH AFRICA

“I traveled through most of South Africa to find out how you can experience the off-the-beaten-track experience in this modern Africa! South Africa is new territory; well organized, perfect roads, beautiful accommodations and above all: stacks of pensionados. Not really a place for an off the beaten experience. Or is it? ”

– Charlie

ABOUT ZUID-AFRIKA

South Africa is considered by many people as the ultimate holiday destination in Sub-Saharan Africa, and for good reasons! With the perfect mix between African adventure and strong European (Dutch!) Influences, this is the Africa entry model.

This 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 top of any South African adventure is of course the mother city Cape Town or cultural Johannesburg!

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

UNIQUE EXPERIENCES

WILDLIFE OF THE TRANSKEI – WILD COAST

Experience the Wild Coast: one of the least developed and most rugged areas of South Africa! This area owes its name to the wild sea, rugged cliffs, surf, a pristine coastline and huge waterfalls. Hike from Bulungula to Lubanzi and stay at a homestay in a local village to experience the unique Xhosa culture. Then hike through rivers, beaches and steep slopes to Coffee Bay where a refreshing swim and a cold drink awaits you!  

4X4 ROADTRIP IN THE NORTHERN CAPE

How can you tick off all the highlights of the Northern Cape? During a rough, off the beaten track road trip of course! In a 4 × 4, you make your way through amazing, desolate landscapes, where diversity just passes by your car window. You hardly meet anyone, and the world seems to be yours!    

EXPERIENCE THE KAROO – THE KLEIN KAROO THAT IS!

Sleep under an endless and impressive starry sky in the outstretched Karoo! The Klein Karoo is a vast semi-desert, nestled between the Swartberg, the Langeberg and Outeniqua mountains. Enjoy a South African braai (BBQ) and admire the impressive starry sky from your private Fly Camp. You wake up to a beautiful sunrise with a cup of strong coffee. There are many activities here, think; hiking, 4 × 4 trails, Farm Tours and more!  

LOCAL LIVING IN SODWANA BAY

Sodwana Bay is a bay in South Africa on the north coast of KwaZulu Natal, between St. Lucia and Lake Sibaya. It is a popular diving destination and lies in the middle of South Africa's oldest Maputaland Marine Protected Area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But apart from the wonderful beach vibes, this place is also known for its rich Zulu Culture which we would like to show you.  

ENJOY IN ROBERTSON WINE VALLEY

The Cape Winelands, trust us when we say, the name says it all! Sure, the names Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are the first that come to mind, but let us tell you something, Robertson is the new best thing! Curiosity setting in? This haven is only a 2-hour drive from Cape Town and before you know it, you’ll be exploring the vineyards with a glass of Chardonnay between your hands!

CHASING STARS – CEDERBERG WILDERNESS AREA

Cederberg is affectionately called ‘South Africa’s best-kept secret’ by locals. Balance over the mountain passes, climb the rock lands, swim in the clear mountain pools or enjoy the varied wildlife. Sleep among the rock formations under the stars and enjoy the solitary silence of the landscape. Wow!
