South Africa offers a unique blend of adventure and relaxation for golf enthusiasts looking to unwind in a picturesque setting. A golf holiday in South Africa can be further enhanced by combining it with a once-in-a-lifetime safari experience, wine-tasting tours, helicopter rides, nature sightseeing, or jumping on a trip on board the luxurious Rovos Train.


Imagine starting your day with a round of golf at Fancourt, De Zalze or Pinnacle Point golf course with breathtaking views of the South African landscape. After a morning on the golf course, you can embark on a thrilling game drive adventure to witness the magnificent wildlife that roams the African savannah such as the Big 5.

In the evenings, indulge in South Africa’s renowned wine culture by visiting vineyards in Jonkershoek and going on wine-tasting tours. South Africa is famous for its diverse range of wines, and a wine-tasting experience that will allow you to savour the flavors of the region while taking in the stunning surroundings.

As well as enjoying magnificent experiences such as golf, safaris and wine tours, South Africa also offers guests a wide range of activities to partake in whilst you’re not on the course, including helicopter and cable car rides over Cape Town offering an opportunity for you to see this buzzing city from the skies.

If naturalism is something you enjoy, as well as game drives, why not do some whale watching in Hermanus, visit the beautiful Blyde River Canyon, or stroll around the stunning town of Stellenbosch.
