Both Illona and Bridget were born in South Africa and have travelled around the country from an early age. Illona qualified as a safari guide and worked in various lodges before joining Steppes in 2000 and has since returned on many occasions with her children. Bridget similarly has 16 years travel experience. We are lucky to have such a team.
There are few countries in the world that offer the same level of diversity as South Africa. Bordered by the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, its scenery is dramatic. Sandy beaches, snow-capped mountains, lush vineyards, the arid Kalahari and of course the multitude of landscapes found in the bush in excellent wildlife-packed National Parks. Although vast in size, getting around is quick and easy, making a combination of the county’s highlights possible and rewarding.
Being the most developed country on the African continent, the choice of things to do is endless and deciding exactly what to do can be tricky.A starting point may include a visit to the beautiful city of Cape Town, set against the backdrop of Table Mountain, exploring the gastronomic delights of the Winelands, self-driving the scenic stretch of Garden Route coastline or enjoying a classic wildlife safari in one of the “Big Five” private reserves bordering the Kruger National Park. For those wanting to get off track, we recommend the sleepy Western Cape coast and KwaZulu Natal which is packed with Zulu war history, and where it’s possible to hike in the Drakensberg Mountains and explore lovely Indian Ocean beaches.

WHEN TO GO
Cape Town and the southernmost part of Western Cape has a Mediterranean-type climate and is warmer than some areas further north. The winter months are mild and changeable, this is also the time when most the rainfall occurs. The Durban and Kwa-Zulu-Natal coastline is affected by the warm Mozambique current and enjoys a sub-tropical climate, with plenty of sunshine throughout the year, but the summer months can become very hot and humid.
