You will find here a Selection of Accommodations in the 9 Provinces of South Africa and eSwatini (Swaziland) & Lesotho
South Africa’s northernmost province, Limpopo, borders onto Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Botswana, making it the ideal entrance to Africa. Named after the great Limpopo River that flows along its northern border, this province is rich in wildlife, spectacular scenery and a wealth of historical and cultural treasures.
Mpumalanga is one of South Africa’s top tourist destinations. People are drawn to Mpumalanga by the magnificent scenery, by the fauna and flora and a wealth of fascinating tribal legends. Aptly know as “Paradise Country”, few regions in the world can match the extraordinary beauty of the Mpumalanga Lowveld and escarpment. Mountains, panoramic passes, valleys, rivers, waterfalls and forests characterise the landscape.
Stretching all the way from Pretoria in the north to Vereeniging in the south, Gauteng (Sotho for place of gold, although the ‘gaut’ is also thought to originate from the Dutch ‘goud’ for gold) was created by the ANC in 1994 after the country’s first all-race elections, uniting six regions, including part of the old Transvaal province, into what might be the smallest South African province, but serves as the gateway into Africa.
Apart from its enviable setting in the western Magaliesberg, there’s always plenty to see and do in the popular holiday resort of Rustenburg. From there, less than half an hour’s drive takes you to the glamorous Sun City Resort and its enormous range of leisure options.
With its wealth of historical and cultural attractions and excellent facilities, Bloemfontein is the ideal place to start a tour of the Free State. North of Winburg, the Willem Pretorius Game Reserveis the Free State’s major provincial reserve,
offering a wealth of wildlife, excellent fishing conditions, and a wide range of sports facilities.
KwaZulu Natal’s leisure options provide a multitude of choices to keep you endlessly entertained. From the city of Durban you can catch a shuttle to Margate, at the hub of the South Coast Golf Circuit. When you’re not playing golf, fishing or lying on the beach,
you can visit a crocodile farm, a nature reserve or follow an arts and crafts trail.
Vast expanses of space and silence, drought and blazing summer sunshine. Across the arid landscape, the Orange River flows, at places in a sluggish tide, at others in a powerful explosion of sound and fury. Were it not for the river, much of the region
may well have remained bleak and populated only by nomadic bands of Bushmen.
If the Western Cape were a woman, she world turn heads. As a province of South Africa, the Western Cape draws
millions of visitors each year to a seemingly small area if compared with other provinces in South Africa,
but one that is so beautiful that it can’t help the distinct attention it draws.
The Eastern Cape holds all that South Africa has to offer. It contains all seven of South Africa’s biomes or ecological zones, and offers a range of climates and cultures with rich traditions. The main feature of the Eastern Cape is its astonishing coastline lapped by
the Indian Ocean. With its long stretches of undisturbed sandy beaches, rocky coves,
secluded lagoons and towering cliffs, the coastline provides the province with a rich natural tourist attraction.
The kingdom of Swaziland is one of the world’s last remaining absolute monarchies. The king rules by decree over his million subjects, most of whom live in the countryside and follow traditional ways of life. Despite being the smallest country in the Southern hemisphere, Swaziland more than makes up for its lack of size with a hugely diverse range of attractions and activities.
The Kingdom of Lesotho is a small landlocked country entirely surrounded by South Africa. It is known as the ‘Mountain Kingdom’, the whole country being over 1,000 metres in altitude. Lesotho is made up mostly of highlands where many of the villages
can be reached only on horseback, by foot or light aircraft.
