A country blessed with all manner of natural and cultural delights, South Africa is an excellent choice of destination for those that want to kick back and relax, enjoying some of the finer things in life. South Africa is Africa’s most popular tourist destination, the Rainbow Nation hosting a huge number of attractions; wineries, beaches, wildlife reserves and excellent nightlife, to name but a few; and the accommodation on offer is first rate. Here are some of the best things South Africa has to offer in terms of luxury.

Cape Town

Regarded by many as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Cape Town, set between the turbulent Atlantic and the majestic Table Mountain, is a must-see for visitors new to the nation. Stay at the Grand Roche hotel, located within an hour’s drive of the city and nestled within the Cape Wine region, and enjoy living in the lap of luxury, your every desire catered for by personal chefs and sommeliers. Whilst in the city itself, enjoy a moment of calm on one of the area’s many beaches, or head out on a boat and indulge in a spot of dolphin and whale watching.


Another of South Africa’s bustling metropolises, Johannesburg is a city bursting with culture and cosmopolitan identity. For luxury accommodation, look no further than the Michelangelo Hotel, a classically up-market, five star hotel located in the Sandton business and leisure district, or book your stay at The Westcliff Hotel, a beautiful location that boasts a spa plus restaurants and bars that pride themselves on providing South African cuisine. When you get bored of the city’s treasures (a rather difficult task in itself) and fancy some more thrills, make sure to visit the nearby Tusk Rio Casino Resort in Klerksdorp. The casino is one of South Africa’s best, and the largest in the Southern Hemisphere! If you enjoy the games or need a little practice before visiting, be sure to head over to another of South Africa’s greats, Yeboyescasino, accessible via mobile devices.

Garden Route

Providing everything a nature lover could ever possibly want from a vacation, the Garden Route is one of South Africa’s most un-spoilt stretches of coastline. National parks, forests, dramatic seascapes, adventure sports and whale watching; all of these exciting and memorable activities have made the destinations on the garden route world renowned. Whilst travelling along the route, be sure to stay at the Villa Afrikana Guest Suites, located in the aptly named Paradise, Kynsna. The hotel is a boutique traveller’s dream, with beautiful rooms, excellent food and a staff that will cater to your every whim.
