Cities in South Africa with Elegant Resorts

A fascinating destination, South Africa sits on the southernmost tip of the mighty continent of Africa. With an attractive climate and several distinct ecosystems, it is a captivating land with vast tracts of untouched wilderness and diverse wildlife, which strikingly contrasts with its sophisticated modern cities, such as Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. The bustling gateway city of Johannesburg is often the starting point for travellers venturing on to popular safari destinations, such as the famous Kruger National Park or superb Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Well-located, geographically, it also offers an enjoyable city stop-over, prior to journeys to its neighbouring countries of Namibia and Botswana, or to the idyllic beaches of Mozambique.

Johannesburg is a city filled with culture, historic sites and exciting cuisine – not forgetting its spectacular Jacaranda trees, which provide a striking purple bloom across the city throughout late spring (October to November). Whether you choose to simply relax beside your stunning hotel pool, visit the up-market shopping malls of affluent Sandton or explore the colourful urban markets and exciting art scene, you will be surprised at the vibrancy and variety of attractions available. For those seeking a little historical culture, guests can visit the Hector Pietersen Museum or take an escorted urban tour to the township of Soweto – synonymous with the country’s political struggles, it is now regarded as a bubbling centre for food artisans, adrenalin-seekers and a flamboyant art scene.

On the south west coast, Cape Town attracts tourists due to its stunning coastal setting, cosmopolitan waterfront and dramatic backdrop of Table Mountain. Travellers flock to stay in world- class hotels, indulge in fantastic cuisine, savour delicious regional wines and relax with sublime sundowners and a traditional braai. Surrounded by fabulous flora and fauna, guests can enjoy a gourmet picnic amongst the fynbos, take Afternoon Tea within the botanical gardens, or delight in a tasting tour within the pretty vineyards of nearby Franschhoek. The western cape is blessed with lush winelands, boasting traditional Cape Dutch architecture, and visitors can easily take to the road and drive the longest wine route in the world – the ever so scenic, Route 62. Those seeking a little more adventure can explore the many outdoor and coastal attractions – see the marine ‘Big Five,’ go shark cage-diving, enjoy sea-kayaking or simply hike along the Otter Trail.
