Katie Derham hears about holidays to South Africa.

There's growing excitement in the country just a few short weeks from the World Cup. Infrastructure and hotels have been upgraded but what's on offer for the tourist? How easy is it to navigate the country and the social divide?

We have reports from Johannesburg and Cape Town and the Winelands. There's advice on ways of meeting local people and how to access some world class music. We hear a listener report from the Reeves of Worcester and follow the Mandela trail to Robben Island.

Katie is joined in the studio by guest Lenny Henry who has recently returned from South Africa, exploring the country through its music and by South-African born travel editor of the Telegraph, Graham Boynton.

The producer is Susan Marling. This is a Whistledown and Just Radio Production for BBC Radio 4.
