SOUTH AFRICA

The southern tip of the continent seems to have gathered all the highlights of its fellow countries, added its own special twist, and bundled them into one irresistible offering.

South Africa encompasses such a treasure trove of things to do that it is one of those rare destinations with something to offer to absolutely everyone. It is especially excellent for families, which can be a tricky attribute to find. Safari, seaside, mountains, culture, wine, art, history, golf. The list goes on, and its lively vibe and warm welcome make it hard to leave and easy to return.

Best time to traval: South Africa is a year-round destination, but fair-weather travellers will appreciate the conditions in May through October.

Putting the 'Saffa' in 'Safari'

While the Kruger National Park is famed for its fantastic game, there are those that are less in love with the slick tameness of its facilities, and paved roads that you can't venture off And for those, there exist the neighbouring private reserves, offering the same staggering parade of wildlife, no other people, and no limitations on your adventuring. Add stellar five-star accommodation and the wonderful South African propensity for deliciousness of food and wine, and it all becomes rather hard to go wrong.

The Extreme 19th

South Africa is world-renowned for its golf offerings, and deservedly so, with a portfolio of more spectacular courses than you can swing a stick at. But (literally) at the top of the list, perched atop 400 metres of Hangklip Mountain and accessible only by helicopter, is the world's longest Par 3. Tee off, aiming for the Africa-shaped green 391 yards away, then hop into your chopper to arrive at your hole-in-one almost before your ball.

Fruits of the Vine

The Cape is home to myriad varietals of the fermented grape and boasts no less than 18 official wine routes, one of which is Route 62: the longest in the world. It would be hard to conceive of a more picturesque setting, and the journey's beauty spells the beginning of a day-long seduction of the senses. Meander through the mountains in the gold-drenched sunshine sampling exquisite wines, gourmet food and wandering in the cool still air of beautiful Cape Dutch cellars that have been there since the 1700's.

Lunch on the Ice

Aside being a destination with plenty to offer in its own right, Cape Town happens to be the perfect launchpad for a casual nip over to Antarctica. Cruise over icebergs and ocean in a luxury jet and spend the day roaming the land of the midnight sun in customised 4x4's, trekking gigantic cliffs, exploring ice tunnels and discovering penguin nests. Dine in a luxurious wooden chalet that houses a museum, as well as a sauna to steam off the snow before you head back to the warm heart of the Mother City.
