South Africa hotels offer the traveller a wide range of experiences from city based properties through to remote lodges and country house retreats.  One thing that you are sure to find is a warm welcome throughout the Rainbow country.  Selecting hotels in South Africa the continent's most southern nation is one of the joys in planning a trip. 

Along the Garden Route you will find luxury resort properties as well as quaint guest houses...

The major cities of Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban are all well served, along with the famous areas of the Garden Route on the South coast, the Drakensburg mountains and the shores of the Eastern coast as well as in the casino resort of Sun City.  And the many game lodges that are prevalent throughout the country in areas such as the Kruger National Park are a revelation with the high standard of service they offer out in the bush.

Peak season is through the summer, from October through to Easter with excellent weather to be found at this time, although for many it is best to visit the game reserves during the winter months of June to August where temperatures are cooler and there is little rain. Cheap hotels in South Africa can generally be found in the months outside of the peak season, although there are often deals to be found with a little searching around.
