If you are searching for that dream holiday, somewhere where you are able to relax with the family, play a round of golf, try new foods, and get up personal and close with the area wildlife and folks, you will struggle to find anywhere more perfect that South Africa. Why, well it is such a beautiful state with so much to see and do that every trip is much better than the last, and it has a great deal to offer the traveller that I pretty much feel it my duty to spread the word!
Therefore a lot more than Nelson Mandela (although he is a legend!), wildlife, and fantastic new world wines, South Africa has stunning nature reserves, vast expanses of ever-changing coastlines, a vibrant mix of ethnic backgrounds, and weather which has a head of a, many of which help make a trip to the Rainbow Nation very memorable indeed.
Golfing is huge in South Africa and it costs well less to play a round than in Europe and the US. With over 70 golf courses between the Western Cape, Eastern Cape and garden Route alone, there is something to accommodate every golfer of every level, and you will have the chance to play on well-manicured courses surrounded by some of the most incredible scenery in the earth.
As South Africa is quite a journey for those living in Northern Europe or perhaps the United States, many choose to combine their golfing holiday and have a city break in Cape Town, and a malaria free safari in the Eastern Cape. Travelling along the infamous Garden Route, there are plenty of good golf courses to stop and play on the way, and in case you’re travelling with the family, there are ample sightseeing attractions to keep both kids and adults entertained.
The distance between Cape Town along with the Eastern Cape is approximately 750km, but it is really gorgeous that many choose to take their time and stop off at popular destinations along the way in which for example Knysna, Plettenberg Bay, and test the handicap of theirs at one of South Africa’s top 10 golf courses – Fancourt Country Club Estate, in George.
