With 11 official languages, nine distinctive provinces, eight UNESCO World Heritage sites, a complicated history and a diverse population, South Africa is no easy country to get your head around!

There are so many types of holiday to have in South Africa. For instance, you could take a sophisticated food and wine journey through the Cape Winelands, relax at a beach retreat in Durban, spot mighty lions in Kruger National Park, or tour a multitude of museums and historical sites – the list goes on and on.

What’s more, South Africa is one of the best ‘bang-for-your-buck’ holiday destinations in the world.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
