Regions of South Africa

Ranging from vast deserts and vineyard-covered mountains to vibrant, modern cities and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, South Africa is staggering in its diversity. The more ’African’ eastern flank of the country contrasts with the colonial-influenced Western Cape, both of which border a sparse but exhilarating interior. Cape Town often features highly on visitor’s travel plans, and rightly so. Offering everything from a visit to the National Gallery, to a swim with penguins at Boulders Beach, South Africa’s most beautiful city has a lot to offer. Being the size of France and Spain combined, there is something in South Africa for every visitor.

Use our map of South Africa to help plan your visit; whether you wish to relax in the picturesque Garden Route towns of the Western Cape, come face-to-face with big game in the Kruger National Park, or trace the footsteps of Nelson Mandela.
