Africa + Indian Ocean
Fantastic game-viewing, vibrant cities and some of the world’s best wineries…
Alongside its amazing natural splendour, South Africa offers great cultural richness, vibrant cities and world-class food and wine. It also has some of the most sophisticated and stylish lodges. Despite its popularity, the country has many unspoilt and uncrowded corners that we can open up for you.
Always a leader in conservation, South Africa is more focused than ever on the rehabilitation of its wildlife areas. The private concessions adjoining the Kruger National Park have some of the world’s best to offer in terms of both game-viewing and places to stay
In other areas the number of malaria-free parks is growing rapidly, enabling families with younger children to sample the delights of safari. For adventurers, the Karoo is little travelled, but a startlingly beautiful region, as are the Kalahari desert and the west coast.
Our favourite lodges and camps in South Africa tend to be small and owner-run, with the very best resident guides and set in the most awe-inspiring locations.

Stories from South Africa
"The whole experience was humbling, emotional and totally unforgettable. It opened my eyes and my interest to South African politics and people. Thank you so very much - a life changing experience!"
“I can't begin to tell you what a FABULOUS holiday we have just returned from in South Africa. I will have to call to tell you all as it would turn into a book if I tried to write it all down on email. There is just so much to tell!! It really was just the best and you did everything to perfection. Our treat of a picnic was so thoughtful and we took it, with the twins, to Natures Valley and sat on the beach. So magical and special you have no idea.”
“What a lovely surprise to be upgraded and also find your kind gift in our room. Don't think we'll ever settle back to our routine lifestyle. La Residence was fabulous so great selection on your part. We loved every minute.”
