At the southernmost tip of the African continent lies a country that offers visitors endless memories filled with adventure, relaxation and awe. Ringed by beautiful beaches and the deep blue waters of two oceans, South Africa is truly a country filled with diversity. In fact, the motto on our coat of arms is !ke e: /xarra //ke, which means “Diverse People Unite” in the Khoisan language.
A sightseeing tour of South Africa will bring you into close contact with a few uniquely South African experiences, such as a visit to the Cape Floral Kingdom – the smallest and richest floral kingdom with 1300 plant species per 10 000 square kilometres. Table Mountain, which can be seen as far as 200 kilometres out at sea, is one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature and a landmark of the Mother City, Cape Town.
At Guttera Tours one of our many passions is to show guests from all over the world the beautiful country we call home. As we take you on a journey to the most breathtaking sights South Africa has to offer, you will experience different cultures, warm hospitality, a colourful history and the thrill of an African safari.
South Africa experiences between 7,5 and 9,5 hours of sunshine per day and is the only country on Earth to have an entire plant kingdom within its national borders.

South Africa has more game, and more game species, than most other countries in the world.
Game farming is fast becoming an industry with great economic potential. Indigenous game is well-adapted to survival in the arid conditions of Southern Africa, although very large land areas are needed to provide enough grazing.
South Africa is home to the Big Five – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhinoceros – as well as a myriad other animals and birds that can be seen at some of Africa’s most amazing game reserves and lodges situated in and around Southern Africa.
