Many tourists travel to South Africa during the winter months only to return in the summer months, and as a result they are unable to take advantage of any late holiday deals. Because of this there is always a rush for tickets to popular destinations. These include Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Bloemfontein. However, there are often plenty of late deals available if you know where to look. Some of these deals can be fantastic deals on theme parks, hotels or even golf courses depending on your interests.
One of the most popular locations to book late holiday deals to South Africa is the Kruger National Park. This park is located in South Africa’s Eastern Cape province and is regarded as one of the most beautiful natural wonders in the world. There are a wide range of attractions to explore here ranging from lions, elephants, zebras and a range of wild animals. The park is also home to many of South Africa’s famous animals including the big five, hippos, elephants, antelopes and a variety of birds.
Another popular destination to book late deals to South Africa is Port Elizabeth. This island was previously the mainstay of the local fishing industry. It is now home to a modern port station, several beaches, as well as the world famous Stonehenge. This ancient monument is also visited by tourists from all over the world. There are a number of late deals available to stay at one of the many guest houses and lodges that remain in operation here throughout the year.
One of the most popular sites to visit during late holiday deals to South Africa is Durban. Located on the north coast of the country, Durban is one of the most diverse cities in Africa. The city has a lot to offer visitors of all tastes such as a vibrant nightlife, a shopping experience that’s hard to forget and a historical place that’s not to be missed. You will find some spectacular architecture as well as traditional buildings throughout the city.
Many hotels and holiday parks are situated along the shores of Lake Durban. This provides a unique experience to visitors who enjoy water sports. Also in this area of South Africa you can visit a variety of natural attractions such as the Olongapo State Game Reserve, the Kruger National Park and the Sabie River that flows just below. There are a number of late deals available to stay at one of these popular attractions.
A little bit of a drive up the road from Durban to Cape Town offers even more excitement. Cape Town is South Africa’s most popular tourist destination and is home to many historical buildings. The older part of the city is designed around a UNESCO World Heritage site and is one of the best examples of Dutch architecture to be found anywhere in the world. There are also plenty of shopping experiences available in the old part of the city. However it is important to note that this part of town is becoming very popular with tourists and as a result is packed most days of the year. It is a good idea therefore to book your accommodation in advance.
A little further north is the Orange Farm region which is home to Blyde River Canyon and the Blyde River National Park. Here you can go on a walking adventure, have a look at some wildlife and also do some bird watching. This is a popular area for families travelling in groups, as it offers both opportunity and excitement. While here you may also want to take a visit to the beautiful Grasmere mineral springs which can be reached by a cable car that runs from the town.
If you’re travelling as a group or with your family late holiday deals to South Africa are ideal. You can combine the activities and sights that you want to see with your lodging and transport and also save some money. Of course if you don’t book your accommodation in advance then the costs can be high. However there are some excellent late deals available online from reputable tour operators. Most of these deals start from as little as 70 GBP for single nights. Booking early online is the best way to secure discounts which will make your holiday affordable.
