South Africa's top hotels and lodges

There are so many hotels and lodges to choose from in South Africa that it can be overwhelming. But there's no need to channel your inner ostrich and stick your head in the sand. We've done all the research for you and only recommend the places that we think offer the best value for money. With 2,800 kilometres of coastline and protected game reserves big enough to swallow up a small country, South Africa is a prime bush and beach holiday destination with ideal accommodation options to suit everyone — honeymooners, families, photographers, specialist visitors, and more.

Cape Town is a permanent fixture on the top of everyone's African bucket list. Combining pristine Blue Flag beaches, a buzzing city centre, majestic mountains, wine farms, and sophisticated restaurants, the Mother City is sure to capture your heart. Explore Table Mountain and the city centre or journey out of town and wander over to the Cape Winelands, the West Coast or the Garden Route.

Further up country lies the legendary Kruger National Park, one of Africa's great game reserves. Nearby you'll find the country's friendliest city and business hub, Johannesburg, as well as the fun holiday resort of Sun City, and even more  game reserves, such as Madikwe Game Reserve and Pilanesberg Game Reserve. You could also venture to the east coast and stay in Kwazulu Natal, one of South Africa's most diverse regions with mountains, beaches, battlefields and bush.
