At the southern most tip of Africa, where the Atlantic Ocean seamlessly meets the Indian Ocean rests South Africa. Plagued with a turbulent past this remarkable country has finally found its identity; one that intrepid travellers are quickly discovering can be mesmeric. It is this innate characteristic that draws thousands to book flights to South Africa annually.

The most popular stop for travellers taking flights to South Africa is Cape Town. The oldest city in southern Africa is by far the most progressive, with its trendy restaurants, buzzing nightlife and quirky shops. North of Cape Town is the vibrant, brash city of Johannesburg which most travellers visit on their way to Kruger Park – the biggest and most famous wildlife reserve in the world.

The towns along the coast of the country are also well worth a visit. Durban, in the northeastern province of KwaZulu-Natal, has the best surf beaches while Port Elizabeth’s quaint cafes provide a good rest-stop on the way to the Garden Route. This coastal strip with its lagoons, forests and stunning beaches has become the second most popular destination after Cape Town.
