Western Cape
Eastern Cape
KwaZulu Natal
The Western Cape forms the most southerly portion of South Africa and offers varied terrain and landscapes from fynbos and spectacular mountain ranges to ocean vistas and the semi-desert plains of the dusty Karoo. The province has an extensive coastline and is bordered by both the temperate Indian and the cold Atlantic Oceans. From the coastline with over 800km of unspoiled beaches to the dry interior of the Great Karoo, the Eastern Cape has a rich and diverse heritage. Incorporating the seaside towns of East London and Port Elizabeth, the beauty of the Wild Coast shoreline, the foothills of the majestic Drakensberg mountains and unrivaled game viewing at the Addo Elephant and Shamwari game reserves, the Eastern Cape has more than enough to offer. From the warm waters of the subtropical Durban coastline to the majestic Drakensberg mountains, KwaZulu Natal has a variety of landscapes and recreational activities to offer the traveler.
Northern Cape
Free State
The Northern Cape, stretching across the vast plains of the Karoo, is a sparsely populated province still relatively unspoiled by man. The Karoo, meaning 'land of great thirst' in the Hottentot language, blazes in the summer heat yet its starkness and silence are breathtakingly beautiful. The vast open spaces of the Free State are the heart of South Africa's farming country. Also referred to as the 'bread basket' of South Africa, the region produces over 70% of South Africa's grain. Stretching across the great central plateau of the interior, the province is symbolized by sunflowers, maize and the rich Free State Goldfields. Mpumalanga, also known as 'the place of the rising sun' in the local SiSwati language, has a broad spectrum of cultures, landscapes and attractions to offer. The province encompasses large areas of the Kruger National and also includes a host of private game reserves from rustic bushcamps to the height of luxury in secluded lodges. Mpumalanga offers the visitor a close and exhilarating encounter with the wildlife of Africa against the backdrop of the bushveld.
North-West Province
Gauteng, otherwise known as the 'Place of Gold', is the smallest yet most fast-paced of the nine South African provinces. Rich in culture and heritage as well as in gold, Gauteng is a diverse melting pot. Peace, quiet and wide-open spaces are symbolic of the North West Province. Here travelers can enjoy a change of pace with a year-round sunny climate and no malaria threat. An abundance of nature reserves allow for exciting game-viewing experiences - both of the Big Five and of the lesser-known animals as well as a colourful array of birdlife. Dramatic contrasts in landscape and vegetation are symbolic of the Limpopo Province. Encompassing dry savannah plains, steep valleys and majestic mountain ranges, the province is one of legend and of the early pioneers during the Great Trek.
