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.

Kruger Experience - Lodge (5 days)

Judith · Traveled August 2023
Loved our 5 day Kruger Lodge in comfort experience. We were well looked after all the way, and loved the activities. Two consecutive days game drive was really good. We got different experiences each day. Highly recommend this trip.

Kruger Experience - Lodge (5 days)

David · Traveled August 2023
The five day Kruger Park Tour was excellent. Accommodation and food was great as were the safari drives where we got to experience so much wildlife. We were got to experience the big five up close. Great tour.

Premium Southern Africa

Emily · Traveled August 2023
Overall a good trip with excellent activities included. It’s a busy itinerary, so don’t expect much downtime, however you do see a lot! I opted to do the optional helicopter flight over Victoria Falls and would say to anyone who’s also looking to do it, save your money & book the shorter 12 minute flight, the longer one doesn’t show you more of the Falls, just further up the river. I was disappointed with some of the accommodation & food provided as they didn’t seem to match the premium description given by Intrepid. However, our guide, Shimane, was incredible and so knowledgeable about everywhere we visited. This trip is a great way to explore southern Africa however I’m not entirely convinced the price tag was worth the experience I had.
