Food & Drinks

The delicious national cuisine of South Africa

The popular restaurant Nando’s may have originated here, but there’s certainly a lot more to enjoy when delving into South African cuisine. Its personality is defined as a blend of indigenous dishes and those brought over by the Dutch.

You’ll find a hearty mix of tasty meat stews, Boerewors sausage, dried meats known as 'Biltong' and spicy ‘Cape Dutch’ dishes such as sambals and curries. International restaurants are very common in larger city centres, and South Africa is also one of the best places in the world for wine production.

Art & Culture

Experiencing the varied sides of South Africa’s rich cultural scene

Learn about the country’s complex racial history in its various museums, including the District Six Museum in Cape Town, or witness fantastic views from the Top of Africa museum in Johannesburg. The theatre scene is mixture of world-famous shows and home-grown performances largely centred in the cultural capital of Cape Town.

Explore South Africa's rich viniculture with tours of the Constantina Valley and Stellenbosch near Cape Town. Agencies including African Story and Cape Wine offer managed tours which allow you to try a variety of wines as well as learn about production.

Local Attractions

Exploring the breadth of fascinating South Africa

With holiday lettings in South Africa, you’ll have the freedom to explore the country at your leisure. Natural highlights are as diverse as the Shark & Safari tours within Cape Town, the stormy oceans at Cape Point and the astonishing Maloti-Drakensberg National Park near Durban.

Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Durban are surrounded with expansive natural beauty, while the proximity of Johannesburg to Pretoria makes visiting both towns in a single visit very possible.
