Hotels in South Africa allow you to get up close to its magnificent landscapes, thriving wildlife and iconic sights. Stay in Franschhoek or Stellenbosch for exquisite wines and vineyards set in luscious landscapes, Johannesburg and Cape Town for thriving cities full of culture or Kruger National Park where you can enjoy a safari. At Hayes & Jarvis we’ll help you find the perfect hotel for your holiday, whatever you’re looking for.

For close proximity to Africa’s Big Five, including lions and elephants, we recommend Lion Sands Private Game Reserve. Look out over the plains from the swimming pool, view game from the hotel’s treehouse and spend the day spotting your favourite animals with an expert local guide. Sun City - The Cascades is surrounded by luscious forests where you can spot incredible animals, as well as being close to water parks and Sun City’s entertainment centre.

Wine lovers will find plenty of wonderful South Africa hotels to choose from. Stay at Leeu House in Franschhoek and find yourself surrounded by vineyards as you enjoy some of the world’s best food and wine. This boutique hotel is full of rustic details and old world charm, perfect for those wanting to immerse themselves in the history of the area. From Franschhoek you can make your way along the world famous Garden Route to Plettenberg Bay. Stay at The Plettenberg and take in views of the sparkling ocean, where you can spot dolphins, seals and other wildlife in the bay. Make the most of the cool waters of the infinity pools as you soak up the views and enjoy the chic, modern interiors.
