Stuck between being a developed and first-world country, South Africa offers the perfect blend of sophistication and luxury while keeping the wild and untamed spirit of its African traditions and cultures. Visiting South Africa is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make.
Indulge in the Culture
From having a national day dedicated to one of its favourite pass times (braai), to exquisite demonstrations of traditional dances, South Africa is dripping with culture and diversity. Situated outside Hluhulwe lies the Duma Zulu Cultural Village. This village gives you an opportunity to witness the traditional way Zulu-life & culture. It’s a beautiful display of a tradition and a visit will surely leave you in awe. ANEW Hotel Hluhluwe offers the perfect base to this cultural hub and showcases traditional Zulu dances each night at our outdoor boma or restaurant while guests enjoy the finest African cuisine.
Put on your Khaki’s and enjoy a Safari
There’s nothing like experiencing Southern Africa’s wildlife by taking safari through its exquisite game parks- and they are in abundance!
There are two ways you can discover the Big 5 of Africa, either on your own with a hired vehicle, or a guided game drive. Our suggestion is to take at least one game drive, even if you have a hired vehicle. The guides are highly trained and it’s always wonderful to hear them share stories about the animals and their experiences. Witnessing the big 5 is a once in a lifetime experience, especially when they’re in their natural habitats. Many of these animals are however nocturnal- especially the big cats, so if you want to view these animals, we’d suggest adding an evening game drive to your schedule as well.
Choose the right time to travel
The country’s culture isn’t the only thing that’s diverse, the weather differs dramatically across the country. Johannesburg is known for its summer thunderstorms, Durban is the humidity capital of the country and Cape Town’s second name is the Cape of Storms.
It’s very important to choose the perfect time to visit South Africa based on the activity you want to do. A beach holiday on the country’s South Coast is perfect for summer days, while the best time for game viewing is during the winter months.
South Africa is a breath-taking country that has so much to offer, is easy to travel, and dares one to embrace adventure.
