South Africa Vacation Rentals

With its unparalleled beauty, endless sunshine, vibrant flora, and stunning fauna, a journey to South Africa is always a worthwhile excursion. No matter what activities you seek to experience or which region appeals to your senses, your stay in a South Africa vacation rental will be everything you always imagined in this stunning country.

Located on the southernmost tip, the Western Cape is South Africa’s most popular tourist destination and home to the oldest city, Cape Town. Cape Town creates an everlasting impression with the massive Table Mountain, its drape of clouds, and the miles of sandy beaches. Only minutes from the city center, visitors of Western Cape vacation rentals simply cannot miss the most beautiful beach in the area, Clifton Beach. While the main attraction is that you can escape from the wind here, Camps Bay and Llandudno are two other scenically stunning beaches to consider.

Beyond the beaches, the Western Cape is overflowing with attractions that are sure to leave you spellbound. The Cape of Good Hope Nature Preserve and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens allow guests of Cape Town villa rentals to explore the natural wonders of the area with a close-up look at some of the most beautiful and interesting flora and fauna in the world. Nearby, guests of Winelands vacation rentals will find tranquility, vineyard-laden mountains, excellent restaurants, historic architecture, and, of course, some of the finest wines available.

As the second most popular tourist destination after Cape Town, visitors of Garden Route vacation rentals will find a recreational paradise among the lush forests, freshwater lakes, secret coves, and stunning beaches. The Tsitsikamma National Park is located in the heart of the region and features nature trails and hiking along some of the most spectacular coastal scenery. At the Wilderness National Park, wildlife viewing in the dense, wooded forest is always an option, while Plettenberg Bay offers some of the best swimming beaches in a naturally serene setting.

Those heading into the Northern Province will find that they have stepped into an untamed setting full of wild animals just waiting to be observed. At the Kruger National Park, one of the biggest wildlife reserves in Africa, visitors of Mpumalanga vacation rentals can experience a wildlife safari unlike any other as they come face to face with elephants, giraffes, hippos, monkeys, and numerous other creatures and may even catch sight of a leopard, cheetah, or rhino. Other popular Mpumalanga attractions include the Blyde River Canyon, the third-largest canyon in the world, and the nearby Mpumalanga escarpment, perfect for a scenic drive.

The KwaZulu-Natal region of South Africa is also teeming with wildlife excursions for anyone who cannot get enough of the great outdoors. Guests of KwaZulu-Natal vacation rentals can visit the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve and seek out the “Big Five,” lions, elephants, leopards, buffalos, and rhinoceroses, that stalk its grounds. After a guided walk or a scenic drive around the oldest game reserve in Africa, visitors can cruise down the Greater St Lucia Wetland waterways for a look at hippos or crocodiles or spend their day diving among the reefs off Sodwana Bay.

The next time you want to set out on a memorable safari or simply enjoy one of the most beautiful countries in the world, be sure to stay in a cozy and comfortable South Africa vacation rental for a truly enchanting getaway.
