South Africa is blessed with some extraordinary natural scenery . There's the wild power of the Cape Coast to the mystery and other-worldy beauty of the Cango Caves. You can hike through the Blyde River Canyon, see the massive trees of the Tsitsikamma Forest, climb Table Mountain for views over Cape Town or relax in the tranquility of Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. All of this is simple when you book flights to South Africa, but there is more on offer than just the majesty of nature:

  • Take the spectacular Flying Dutchman funicular railway out to Cape Point.
  • See the African penguins at Boulders Beach.
