South Africa holidays
From the cosmopolitan streets of Cape Town, with their Dutch colonial influence, to the Indian bazaars of Durban, the townships of Johannesburg and the incomparable wildlife of the Kruger National Park, South Africa offers a dazzling variety of landscapes and cultures. Our most recent addition to ACFEA Legato's worldwide network of representatives is based near Cape Town, and they can advise on all aspects of music touring in this fantastic country.
Dubbed the City of Gold, Johannesburg is a sophisticated, modern city, with many international hotels and an abundance of nightlife. Its wealth was created largely by the discovery of gold in the nineteenth century, and it is still the commercial and financial capital of the country.
Cape Town is an area of exceptional scenic beauty, with mountains, valleys, fishing harbours, beaches and wild, temperamental seas. You can explore the newly developed Victoria and Albert Waterfront, with its many shops and restaurants, or join a cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain.
Durban is a coastal resort on the Indian Ocean with a fascinating cultural flavour - a blend of east, west and ancient Africa. You can visit the "Golden Mile" beachfront area and the absorbing Indian market with its abundance of spices and handicrafts. The climate is sub-tropical, and the surfing is some of the best in the world!
Grahamstown is a pleasant university town with well-restored Georgian and Victorian buildings lining the streets and pretty suburban gardens. It is probably best known for the Grahamstown Festival, the largest of its kind in Africa, which takes place every July.
