Make a holiday rental, home or villa in South Africa your home away from home

South Africa

South Africa is an incredible country of diversity, both in terms of culture and landscapes. The country is still developing an identity after the end of apartheid, and this means there is a vibrancy and excitement surrounding the country. No two holidays to South Africa will ever be the same, and no matter how much South African travel you have done, there are always many more experiences to be had.

Places to holiday in South Africa

It would take months to compile a list of places worth visiting from a South African holiday rental, and before embarking on a South African holiday it is strongly advised that you read about the country. However, here are a couple of vague ideas for your South African holiday;

KwaZulu Natal is a spectacularly beautiful area, steeped in Zulu history. The Drakensburg Mountains rise out of nothing, and are adorned with Stone Age cave paintings. The coastal regions offer some of the best surfing, deep sea fishing and beaches, 10 of which have been awarded World class status, and inland, the golf courses, hang-gliding facilities and mountain biking trails are amongst the best in the world. The city of Durban and the Golden Mile are situated in KwaZulu Natal.

The Western Cape is no less diverse. The wild Agulhas Coast is separated from the dramatic Cedarberg Mountains by the Cape Winelands and the Garden route, whilst the coast itself stretches for hundreds of miles, broken up only by fishing villages, beach resorts and rocky outcrops. The sea fishing, as in KwaZulu Natal, is exceptional, and there are plenty of opportunities to charter a fishing boat and guide whilst staying in a South African holiday villa. Any travel to this part of South Africa would not be complete without a visit to Cape Town and the imposing Table Mountain which overlooks it.

Mpumalanga is one of South Africa’s fastest growing provinces, having been created in 1994. Despite being a new province, the land has a very long history, and sites have been presented exquisitely for tourists to gain an understanding of past events. However, Mpumalanga is South Africa’s safari heartland, and wildlife is diverse and exciting, and the fishing here is superb. Although there is no coast, you can view game from kayaks, cave dive, white water raft and power boat on the rivers.

Gauteng was also created in 1994, and is the region where you can find Johannesburg is located. It is a cosmopolitan area, with 70 shopping centres and derives its wealth from the gold deposits found there over the centuries. It is often considered the gateway to South Africa.

Limpopo is the north-eastern province of South Africa. It is an unspoilt region offering sanctuary for game, and is therefore a favourite for South African safaris. The world famous Kruger National Park is here and there is extensive wildlife to amaze and inspire you.

Things to do in the South Africa

South Africa is blessed with so many natural resources that it excels in every activity and adventure it offers. The violent history has produced some fascinating monuments and battle fields, whilst the natural surroundings make it a favourite for safaris, fishing (sea, river and lake), horse riding holidays, and beach holidays. There are also a huge number of world-class South African golf courses and vineyards, and this is before you immerse yourself in the culture and gastronomic delights of this fantastic country.

Travel to South Africa

There are many cheap flights to South Africa, but it is essential to choose the final destination for your South Africa holiday before deciding on flights as there is such a variety, and there are often good deals on cheap flights to South Africa.

These were the highlights for us: * Spacious, comfortable and well-presented apartment with all the comforts * Peaceful location for a great night's sleep * Great view of Table Mountain and nearby Signal Hill. Impossible not to feel relaxed when you are sitting on the sofa looking out the large patio windows. * Convenient access by car to N1/N2 motorway and Victoria Wharf mall with many dining places * Heiner (the owner) is a pleasure to deal with and his agents give prompt and courteous service I cannot in all honesty think of any negatives. We would happily stay again if we return. Obviously this is not the cheapest accommodation in Cape Town but it is worth every penny if you are looking for a relaxing and high quality vacation.

I had booked this villa for a family reunion of 5 siblings, where 3 couples stayed here, while the other 2 stayed down the road where my sister lives. It was ideal - everything one could need was in place, clean, ready to enjoy, including several good books! The welcome from Joan was warm, friendly and helpful. It was great to be able to feed a crowd without running out of plates and cutlery! Too often self-catering places only have just enough dishes for the number of beds - so 10/10 for providing so generously that we could serve 12 people at a meal with no trouble. The weather did not encourage us to use the pool, except on our last day. And time only allowed for one kayak excursion. The local nursery has a lovely cafe - worth a visit. And further afield, Cape Point Ostrich Farm has a unique restaurant. Walking on the Noordhoek beach was most enjoyable. Our 4 days were soon over - would highly recommend this property for families. A great location for relaxing or exploring the beautiful Cape peninsula.

A traditional cottage house, but very secure and totally modernised. Clean and well maintained. Perfect for 4 people. Plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars all within walking distance.
