South Africa Tours & Holidays

The whole ‘country of contrasts’ thing has become a bit of a cliché

But what else do you call a place where (in a three-week period) you could happily slalom between penguins waddling on the Cape and lions stalking the bushveld, cinematic coastal switchbacks and burnt Kalahari sand, the oldest wine industry outside Europe and cutting-edge fusion cuisine? ‘Contrast’, doesn’t really do South Africa justice. The beauty of a South Africa tour (besides the peace of mind that comes with an expert local guide) is being able to fit so much Africa into so little time. From the Stellenbosch winelands to Kruger, Blyde River and beyond, this is a place where you can take your safari with a side of espresso.

South Africa Family Safari with Teenagers

James · Traveled March 2024
This trip far exceeded our expectations! Our family had a wonderful time learning and seeing so much of this diverse, and culturally rich area of beautiful South Africa. We have all made some great friends in the group and crew who we hope to see again. Thank you Intrepid, until next time!

Vic Falls to Kruger

Oliver · Traveled March 2024
Brilliant tour where I was amazed at all I saw, including all of the Big Five. We had a small, lovely, easy-going group - it was a pleasure to be with them and we helped each other out. Awesome tour guide. The food was delicious and there was lots of it. I was worried about the camping, but it turned out to be fine. Don't forget a head torch!

Vic Falls to Kruger

Leigh · Traveled March 2024
The thought of camping was a bit daunting to be honest but I needn’t have worried, it was fantastic! I loved the variety of experiences we had on this trip. The home stay was awesome, we met some amazing people and had so much fun with the locals. The game drives were out of this world and action packed. Fantastic trip
