tailor-made South Africa tours - a paradise for connoisseurs
South Africa - a country full of fascinating experiences:
Conquer the highlight national parks Madikwe or Sabi Sands in the footsteps of the Big 5, whether classically in the Kruger National Park or by fly in safari with the private charter plane.
Whether a helicopter flight over Table Mountain or a luxury river cruise in the Marakele National Park. Ride through the Franschoek vineyards and taste fine wines in Stellenbosch.
Follow in Nelson Mandela's footsteps on Robben Island and admire the cute penguins on Boulders Beach. Spend your nights in modern coastal villas, charming boutique hotels, incomparable safari lodges or under the stars in your very own tree house in the Kalahari.
From the vineyards on the slopes of the Western Cape to the wide skies of the Kalahari and the untamed Kruger bush, from the cosmopolitan Cape Town to the remote Zulu villages - the extent and diversity of South Africa is almost infinite.
Explore the ecological diversity of False Bay. Raise a glass at Cape Point as you gaze out at the meeting of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. Dive into the cage and look a great white shark in the eye. Take surfing lessons from a world champion. Dive for diamonds on the ocean floor of South Africa's west coast. Watch whales from the terrace of your villa.
Luxury travel South Africa. South Africa - wild and casual. Experience unforgettable moments. Barefoot luxury, active and relaxed. Travel like Dr. Julia Malchow.
Indulgent train rides on the restored Edwardian Rovos Rail or the modern day Blue Train are great ways to travel long distances in luxury.
You can jump on board for just one night or spend two weeks on the train between South Africa and Tanzania. Traveling between Cape Town and Pretoria is a great introduction to South Africa.
The remote and wild Elephant Coast stretches along the east coast of South Africa towards Mozambique.
With its empty beaches, this coast has more in common with Mozambique than the rest of South Africa. The golden beaches are lined with lush coastal forests that are home to numerous hippos and crocodiles.
Since there are few lodges to be found on this coast, it makes it a secluded and special hideaway.
Most whale watching requires warm, waterproof clothing and boarding a boat, but that's a whole different story in the Cape.
In Hermanus, the cliffs drop steeply into the sea, so the whales are only 30 meters from the shore.
In principle, South Africa can be traveled well all year round. When it's summer in Germany, it's winter in South Africa. But not with such cold temperatures as in Germany.
Even when the nights are cold, daytime temperatures are between 22 and 30 degrees. The rainy season in South Africa runs from June to September. But even in the rainy season there is mostly sunshine.
The time difference compared to Central European Time (CET) is + 1 hour. There is no time difference between Germany and Zambia during summer time.
South Africa has had eleven official languages since the end of apartheid: English, Afrikaans, isiZulu, Siswati, South Ndebele, Sesotho, Sepedi, Xitsonga, Setswana, Tshivenda and isiXhosa. This makes the country, after Bolivia and India, the one with the most official languages in the world.
Braai is a tradition in South Africa. Braai has nothing to do with “porridge”. On the contrary, the braai is a barbecue. Braai not only grills meat and sausages, but also many types of vegetables.
First and foremost, braai is about getting together with friends and family. A tradition that is owed to the English occupation: Eggs are served for breakfast in South Africa in all possible variations, as a classic “English Breakfast” or as “Eggs Benedict” or as omelets and scrambled eggs.
South Africa is a multicultural country in which the consequences of apartheid can still be found and the population groups often live in separate residential areas.
The proportion of “white” people of European origin in the total population is 8.9 percent, mainly the descendants of Dutch, German, French and British immigrants who immigrated here more strongly from the middle of the 17th century.
In times of Covid 19, a visa requirement was introduced until further notice. This visa must be applied for at the South African embassy in Berlin.
Otherwise, only a valid passport is required to enter South Africa.
