Directors recommend South Africa

For many years Design Holidays (click to visit website) have been arranging bespoke tours to the magnificent continent of Africa.

Starting in Cape Town where evidence of our colonial past still exist in the elegant buildings and culture to the Cape Malay cuisine mixing both the Indian and African elements of cooking, Cape Town is an experience  beyond all others in the Southern hemisphere. Moving on into the outstanding Wine Lands where so many of the worlds great wines are produced. With an influence of France many would mistake this part of South Africa for the vineyards of Europe. Never has so much of the best of European life been vested in another country.  All this coupled with the weather and the vivacious Africans themselves give for a holiday like no other.

From the winelands clients are driven another hour to reach the southern coast more commonly known as the Garden Route.  From the vantage point of Hermanus where Whales can be spotted not far off shore to Knysna and its inland lagoon, this stunning excursion along the most southerly part of Africa is perhaps one of the most wondrous drives anywhere in the world.   Many small guest houses are dotted along this route which would put many five star hotels to shame.  If true luxury is what you desire then a stay at the award winning Pezula Hotel at Knysna would indeed overwhelm you.

All these wonderful sights could never prepare you for Safaris in the Kruger National Park or Botswana.  These tours are truly the most rewarding and fulfilling life experiences.  Seeing animals in their natural habitat, being so close at all times in the safety of your land rover.  Many lodges exist that offer the very best of service and catering.  Guests rooms where you can shower in luxury in the bush while looking out over savannah grassland are just one of the many experiences giving you the most memorable holiday you could ever take abroad.

Directors of Design Holidays holiday regularly to South Africa and arewax lyrical about every aspect of this most marvellous country.
