WWith nine provinces to explore, each with a soul of their own, you’ll never run out of memories to make.
South Africa’s third-smallest province, KwaZulu-Natal has a wealth of scenic and cultural attractions.
Mpumalanga means ‘the land of the rising sun’ in the local siSwati and Zulu languages, a name it derives from lying on the eastern border of the country.
The Free State is essentially an agricultural province and its appeal lies in its scenic beauty, rural tranquillity and natural attractions.
The scenic splendour of the Western Cape has long been a drawcard in South Africa.
The Northern Cape is the largest of South Africa’s provinces but has the smallest population, making it one of the more remote areas of the country.
Small town charm
In the Tooley family since 1904, Kings Walden Garden is a treasure of fountains, paths and flowers reminiscent of colonial style estates set against the backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountains.
False Bay has an intriguing history of naval battles, pirate visits and the establishment of scenic little seaports all along its shores. It is also one of the most beautiful bays in the world, and seems to cater for everyone’s holiday needs, offering adventure, leisure, bright lights and great food. Visitors can travel to Cape Point or drive towards Hangklip via Gordon’s Bay.
Weddings on wine estates can be very beautiful and romantic and there are many Cape Winelands wine estates to choose from – many venues have a small chapel in their grounds for the ceremony, or offer scenic spots among vines, in manicured gardens or in historic buildings. You can choose to have your wedding inside a wine cellar (in winter when it’s cold) or outdoors surrounded by beautiful Cape mountains (when the sun is shining and it’s warm).
The Darling Wine Route comprises a few independent estates and is known for producing some of the country’s best sauvignon blanc, shiraz and pinotage wines.
Take a drive from Grahamstown to Port Elizabeth and explore the pubs, beaches, restaurants and seaside adventures that come with one of South Africa’s top coastal areas.
A road trip from Smithfield to Philippolis offers visitors South African War history, friendly small towns, the Gariep Dam, ancient rock art and access to tigers.
