From the rare natural wonders of the Cape Floristic Region (the smallest of the world’s six recognized floristic kingdoms, or phytochorions) to the wineries and elegant Old Dutch-style hostelries of the Cape Winelands, from the urban pizzazz of Cape Town to the fabulously but imaginatively luxurious lodges of the private, serene, wildlife-rich Sabi Sands and Singita concessions on the border of famed Kruger National Park, South Africa lives up to its unofficial motto, A World in One Country.
