There are a number of ways to get around South Africa, but why not do it in luxury? These options are for the traveller who would love to see the country's myriad attractions while travelling in great comfort and elegance.

When it comes to luxury train transport guests can enjoy high tea, multiple courses of fine dining, boutique shopping and overnight stays in beautiful suites.

Luxury bus trips can include spacious seating, seats that recline into beds, on-board toilets, screened movies, hostesses and complimentary drinks. One bus operating company also offers its guests laptop and cellphone charging facilities, as well as blankets.

There are also luxury car rental options. Here, guests can either self-drive with vehicles in more expensive classes or they can organise a trip with a service provider that will drive them in luxury vehicles. 

If your guests would like to explore the wonders of the sea, there are luxury yacht trips. On board a luxury yacht, guests can enjoy fine dining, various lounges or relaxation areas, sun decks and people catering to their every whim.

Though these options are varied and their offerings are varied, they all promise your guests plush ways in which to explore our beautiful country.
