Black rhinos, red wines, golden sands — the “Rainbow Nation” of South Africa is on full display with Holland America Line. Cruise to Cape Town for the chance to ride the Table Mountain cable car, walk in Nelson Mandela’s footsteps at Robben Island, sip juicy Cabernets at a Stellenbosch estate, or escape to the Etosha pan in Namibia. Richards Bay is the launch pad for Big Five safaris in Phinda Private Game Reserve, while Durban’s Golden Mile serves as gateway to the revered Kruger National Park.

In Partnership With

Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town's spectacular setting on Table Bay seldom fails to take one's breath away, whether you are a local or a visitor. If Johannesburg is South Africa's New York, this port city of four million, settled by traders from the Dutch East India Company in 1652, is its San Francisco. With a rich array of restaurants, galleries, vineyards and countless beaches, as well as a Mediterranean climate, life on the Cape Peninsula, which stretches for some 70 kilometers (43 miles) from downtown to the most southerly point, Cape Point, is genteel and all about good, healthy living and staying outdoors as much as possible.
