South Africa is a country of extremes, where poverty-stricken shanties exist alongside first-world art galleries, entertainment venues, sports arenas, and restaurants. Its magnificent landscapes include snow-dusted mountains and areas of arid semi-desert; whilst its twin coasts support incredible marine biodiversity. With countless ethnic groups and no fewer than 11 official languages, its human culture is just as diverse. Whether you're looking for a beach vacation, a city break, or an escape into the game-filled bush, South Africa has the ability to be all things to all people.

If tigers and lions don't float your boat, try searching for penguins and ostriches. Laze on the beach or dive with sharks, eat in trendy metropolitan restaurants or gather round a braai.
