Highlights

Cape Town - The carpeted greens decorated with delicate florals, and the in-your-face beauty of the craggy mountain range falling into the sea – you can never go wrong in choosing Cape Town as your next Islamic holiday spot. Apart from the picturesque views, the world-class restaurants, exquisite art galleries, and mind-blowing shopping centres give Cape Town a cool urban edge. For the travellers, weather is favourable all year round except for the torrential winter rains. The accommodation prices go skyrocket in December, but the food remains incredibly reasonably priced.

 
Garden Route - Garden Route is one of the most popular destinations in South Africa and for a good reason; it is an ideal spot for your halal honeymoon, a perfect getaway with your friends, and an amazing family holiday place. There are so many attractions that you won’t be able to see them all in a single trip. If you are in Garden Route for less than a week, you must not miss going to the Dias Museum Complex, Garden Route National Park, Robberg Nature & Marine Reserve, Monkeyland, Knysna Lagoon, and Botlierskop Private Game Reserve.
 
Durban - Most of the travellers visiting South Africa enjoy the urban hipster scene in Joburg and let themselves indulge in the beauty of Cape Town, but they miss out on Durban. The best-kept city in the country has predominantly been a beach town, but the streets are now lined with sculptures, performers, stalls, and restaurants. From promoting the creations of the local designers to encouraging low-key fine dining, Durban will give you an old-school luxury feel. It is a heaven for sports lovers with its wide variety of ground and underwater activities.
 
Safari Experiences - South Africa will lead you to a handful of Safari experiences and the opportunity to see the Big Five (lion, elephant, leopard, cape buffalo, and rhinoceros). The most famous safari destination has to be the Kruger National Park, which is an hour’s flight away from Joburg. The Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve is a part of Kruger and is the best option for first-time safari-goers. The other interesting safari choices, which must be explored if your itinerary allows you are the Selati Camp, Bush Lodge, Earth Lodge, and Little Bush Camp.
