Best Places to Stay in SA
South Africa’s Diplomatic Community hosts over 87000 International visitors every month – have you claimed your share of this pie?
There are two very specific areas in South Africa that are flooded by thousands of Diplomatic visitors, Ambassadors, Diplomats, Diplomatic staff and all their visiting families and business associates every month. The President, Deputy President and the Ministers make up the executive branch of the National Government and operate from the Union Buildings in Pretoria – in the midst of the Diplomatic Belt. The bicameral Parliament of South Africa makes up the legislative branch of the National Government, and operates from The Houses of Parliament in Cape Town. The busy flow of International visitors to these two regions demand a continuous supply of accommodation.

Incorporating drone photography and occasionally using a lodge’s airstrip to land in his plane, Eksteen Jacobsz is not your ordinary photographer!
