I would highly recommend travelling with Intrepid, we got to see a large part of South Africa in a short period of time. We got to experience the culture, people and everything SA has to offer. Our guides Gift and Sandile, were bubbly, friendly, professional and looked after the entire group very well throughout our trip. Thanks to them and Intrepid my holiday in SA was spectacular.

This tour packs so much into two weeks - be prepared for an amazing experience!! You will eat delicious dinners, enjoy unbelievable views, and explore places far off the beaten path. To reiterate what others have said: Bring workgloves to help set up your tent (total lifesavers!), warm clothes if traveling in winter (it gets very cold at night), and DEFINITELY do the Amphitheater Hike in Drakensberg. There's a fair amount of time on the truck and the accommodations aren't fancy, but if you want a memorable adventure, this is your trip.
