Table MountainThe nine provinces of South Africa are all very different and each have their own beauty. If you are short of time pick a highlight and take a day trip. Otherwise take a week or 2 and travel between them all.

Check out our top 7 'must see' highlights of South Africa... Kruger National Park Only a few hours away from Johannesburg. You can't be so close and not go and see the Big 5 in their natural environment. Apartheid Museum in Soweto We have a complicated history. After a visit you will have a new appreciation for your own freedom. Township Tour in Soweto A glimpse into the life of the average South African and a chance to see how South Africans live day to day. Table Mountain Hard to miss really. Cable cars run daily or you can hike up the mountain in good weather. Addo Elephant National Park Addo is smack in the middle of the Garden Route. Get up close to these gentle giants. Robben Island Museum Sadly famous because of Nelson Mandela's imprisonment, but also a symbol of the quest for equality - don't miss this. Cape Point An opportunity to take amazing photo's in this National Park. So picturesque it is bound to move you.

Ngorongoro Crater Game Drive

Have you ever ridden a camel or swum with dolphins? Why not?

From snorkeling in some of the clearest Zanzibar water, to following the footprints of lions on a game drive in the Serengeti - Tanzania has it all!

The excitement of a hot air balloon safari is rivaled only by being within a car length of a Big 5 animal whilst on a game drive. Achieve the ultimate and climb Kilimanjaro or have 'High Tea' complete with scones, jam and cream at a local tea plantation. Enough adventure for one day?

Head out on a dhow and sip on cocktails while watching the sun set over the azure waters of the Zanzibar archipelago. Sounds good?

Check out the Top 10 Tanzania Highlights: - Ride a Camel in Arusha - Trek Mt Kilimanjaro - View game in the Ngorongoro Crater - See the migration herds in the Serengeti National Park - Have fun on the Stone Town Spice Tour - Swim with Dolphins in Zanzibar - Scuba dive the crystal clear Zanzibar waters - Sail in a dhow and go snorkeling - See the tea plantations near Iringa - Take a balloon ride in the Amboseli National Park
