Why choose a South Africa Holiday?

For many people, a South Africa holiday conjures up images of amazing wildlife, safaris and vast open spaces filled with wild animals.

South Africa, however, is a wide range of stunning locations, world-class cities, golden beaches, wild scenery, vineyards, the world-famous Kruger National Park and more. The accommodation, food and fine wines of South Africa are superb and few places in the world offer such value for money.

Whether you choose to go Whale-watching, sample the fine wines of South Africa, get close to nature on a game drive or South Africa Safari, play a round or two on some of the best golf courses in the world or simply relax on an idyllic Indian Ocean beach, you won't be left disappointed.

Why choose the Independent Traveller?

Our expertise and knowledge are included free of charge when you book with us and it draws on the experience of our directors, our many past clients, our countless groups and the support on the ground by our ground agents.

Throughout the trip you will have a 24-hour contact number from our agents to aid you if there was any problem along the way.
