Because South Africa offers you so much more than just a holiday. It is an "experience" and you will not want to miss out! Become one of the 40,000 Irish people who have visited South Africa and you too could experience the breathtaking scenery, the envious climate and the beauty of the people.
South Africa has experienced an African Renaissance built on its diverse and fascinating cultural heritage. You, as a tourist have the opportunity of discovering the real Africa by letting yourself be immersed in the vibrant culture of the country, by soaking up the history of the nation and feeing the African spirit. Nelson Mandela once said " I have walked that long road to freedom and I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance that I have come. I dream of our vast deserts, of our forests and of all our great wilderness. My walk has not ended".
Many visitors are pleasantly surprised by South Africa's excellent infrastructure, which draws favourable comparison with countries such as Australia or the United States. Good air links and bus networks, excellent roads and a growing number of first-class B&Bs and guesthouses make South Africa a perfect touring country. Crime isn't the indiscriminate phenomenon that press reports suggest, but it is an issue. Really, it's a question of perspective – taking care but not becoming paranoid.
It has never been easier to get to South Africa with a wide variety of experiences on offer to suit your needs. South Africa offers you: Adventure, Discovery, The Big Five, Golf, Left-Hand Driving, Very Favourable Exchange Rates, An All Year Round Sunny Climate.
