Reading through South Africa’s highlights is like reading the headliners for the whole of Africa. South Africa sits on the southern most tip of Africa and boasts some of the continent’s biggest attractions, so much so that a quarter of all visitors to Africa head to this diverse country. From the Kalahari Desert to the iconic Kruger National Park, and the beautiful beaches of the Garden Route, South Africa offers its visitors the ultimate African experience. Brightsun Travel has a range of fantastic holidays to South Africa including safari tours, beach escapes and unforgettable tailor made trips. Starting in the vibrant capital of Cape Town, sitting beneath the Table Mountains, and the once Design Capital of the world, you can stroll along sea front promenades, drive breath-taking coastal roads and take in some seriously eye catching urban landscapes. Cape Town is also close to some of the oldest vineyards outside Europe, famous the world over, nestled in high altitude hills surrounding the city. From Cape Town you can easily explore South Africa’s coasts, mountains and tropical forests, and Brightsun Travel offers a range of South African holidays to Cape Town and its surrounds.
Once you leave Cape Town you are spoilt for choice. What better place to start than Kruger National Park, home to the Lebombo Mountains and a diversity and volume of animals unparalleled in the rest of Africa. Here you'll find elephant, leopard, cheetah and giraffe on a grand scale. Unlike other parts of Africa, Kruger National Park offers a wealth of easy guided tours and plenty of accommodation options, even for the budget conscious traveller. Brightsun Travel offers many cheap holidays to South Africa and great value safaris. Or perhaps you'd like to take a tour of the incredible coastal and mountainous landscapes of South Africa. The Garden Route boasts some of the best beaches in the country and a coastline backed by ancient forests, a combination that makes this region one of South Africa’s most beautiful. Then there's the incredible Drakensberg range of table top peaks, or ‘Dragon Mountains’, offering one of the most breath-taking landscapes in the world – a sight not to be missed. Whatever it is you hope for from a holiday to Africa, South Africa can most likely provide.
