Best Places to Visit in South Africa


We have seen an increase in travel to South Africa and most of Southern Africa following the many years of not travelling. 

 Many guests have been taking longer uniquely personalized holidays with a small group of friends where they enjoy the highly experiential private holiday itinerary. This allows themselves the time to explore smaller accommodation establishments located off the beaten path. To have additional time to choose your activities based on prevailing tourist volumes at your destination. The ability to make rapid changes to your schedule when necessary will be a huge added bonus.

SPRING in the Southern Hemisphere

So where do we go at this time of the year? What do we consider if we want to travel during the southern hemisphere spring season in August, September, and October? Well, South Africa is a pretty cool place to explore. Let’s see now. What do we have to offer on the most southern and southwestern tip of Africa?

Cape Town

The Western Cape region with Cape Town as the capital has a Mediterranean climate with rainfall in winter. It is also home to the beautiful Cape Winelands. A wine region with more than five distinctly different production areas. The award-winning wines are growing in popularity around the world. Incidentally, the Baines Single Malt Whiskey voted the world’s best gold medal single malt whiskey in 2018. It was produced at the James Sedgewick Distillery near the town of Wellington. This is a mere 30 minutes drive from downtown Cape Town.

Wildflowers near Table Mountain


Spring season Wildflowers in abundance.

Spectacular Wildflower display and Whales

More importantly. As the days get warmer in late winter, the month of August sees the most spectacular display of wildflowers. This in the normally dry area of the West Coast to the north of Cape Town. Now travel further south to the town of Hermanus located on the Whale Coast. See the spectacular display of the Southern Right Whales that come up from the south. They congregate on this coastline for around four months from July each year.

If you have limited time available you may consider a shorter Safari with a two-night stay on a private Game Reserve with the popular Fair Trade Safari Itinerary. There are many great activities to choose from in this area. Visit the Fair Trade private nature reserve of Grootbos. Here you may watch the antics of the whales from the deck. Also visit the village of Gansbaai and do Marine Big Five Tour. Or even a Shark Cage Dive which is ideal for the adrenaline junkies.

Elephants in the Malaria Free areas of the Eastern Cape

Now, if you have a few more days available to you. You may combine these wonderful experiences into one beautifully organized Safari. Continue to the Garden Route on a Twelve-day Safari. End your trip in the Malaria Free Safari area of the Eastern Cape. Home to the well known Addo Elephant National Park.
