10 Reasons Why Southern Africa Is The Perfect Post COVID-19 Travel Destination

Looking Ahead...

After long months of lockdown, social distancing and concern for both our own health and for the health of others, many people are looking forward to the future and making plans that include where to travel next.

The catch phrase ‘SOUTH AFRICA IS TRAVEL READY‘ is being used by tourism bodies around South Africa to reassure the world that the destination is working hard to revive the industry and welcome international guests back to our shores as soon as possible.

While many borders are still closed we feel that this is the perfect time for travellers to begin thinking about their next trip and wanted to highlight 10 reasons why we know South Africa is the perfect post COVID-19 destination.

 

With a South African road trip travellers can explore off the beaten track. South Africa has a great network of roads, many interesting, quaint and historic small towns and a myriad landscapes which offer breathtaking scenery.

Memories To Last A Lifetime

Travel to one country which offers a wide range of things to see and do – lazing on secluded beaches, enjoying the African sunrise on safari, taking in mountain vistas and enjoying trails and hiking routes, exploring wine country and enjoying tastings at some of the world’s top estates, delving into sophisticated and cosmopolitan cities, discovering a host of natural attractions including several world heritage sites and learning about our rich cultural heritage.

South Africa offers a range of accommodation including exclusive-use villas, boutique hotels and intimate lodges, together with private transfers between the airport and hotels and private touring where crowds and over-tourism is avoided.

Authentic Experiences, Deeper Connections

Allowing travellers to meet the locals and get deeper under the skin of South Africa. These interactions range from private foodie walking tours in Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Kalk Bay to exploring art museums and galleries during specially curated private tours, having the opportunity to meet the winemakers while visiting handpicked estates, hiking along overnight slackpacking trails in the Drakensberg Mountains, along the Wild Coast and Kosi Bay or learning to live, laugh and love in the Limpopo.

Escaping The Ordinary

Expertly guided and tailor-made private tours in Cape Town and the surrounding areas

– get out into nature and take full advantage of the Cape’s adventure playground: from hiking to surfing. Stretch those legs, take in the fresh air and let some of Cape Town’s best storytellers captivate you with fascinating stories about the ‘Mother City’ and the Cape of Good Hope.

Sustainability can be seen at many of the properties and during many of the tours offered. These range from the conservation levies charged by many of the lodges going straight back into conservation and the local communities, supporting smaller businesses with specific areas of expertise. Eco-conscious options are also abound and many properties are off the grid or have Green tourism initiatives to lower their impact on their environments.

Travel Slower, Stay Longer

With so much to see and do in South Africa itineraries are often jam-packed with travellers moving between different towns and regions every few days. South Africa offers some ideal places for travellers to ‘put their feet up’ and relax while soaking in the natural beauty of their surrounds.

Value For Money

Now more than ever South Africa’s rand can go far, especially when converted from dollars or pounds. South Africa has always offered good value for money with quality hotels, tours and world-class experiences but there are now some really fantastic deals to be had for travel during the latter part of 2020 and into much of 2021.

Here's to the future. Happy planning!
