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.

There’s a lot to see and do on this trip. I enjoyed it all with an awesome crew (Tshepo, Lizzy and Shimane) and some great co-travellers.

Garden Route Adventure

Holly · Traveled October 2023
A whirlwind trip. Be prepared for a few long days on the road but they’re all totally worth it. Truly feel we have seen the true South Africa on this trip. An excellent experience.

Garden Route Adventure

Kerstin · Traveled October 2023
This trip boosts some spectacular scenery and locations visited are beautiful. The crew makes the trip even more enjoyable, thanks to Christian, Enock and Gift! - as well as the group that felt like family. The optional hikes/walks are beautiful, but beware you're crossing different climate zones and the weather in the mountains and coast is unpredictable and may change in seconds. Some hikes might not be possible due to bad weather/rain/snow. Bring enough jumpers, wind and rain jackets and maybe even extra blanket as it can get chilly, especially at night. Also be prepared for long driving days (but don't sleep all the way as you might miss out on the beauty of the country or even some wildlife).

This adventure is worth every penny you pay! It can be rustic at times and it is strenuous at times! Very helpful staff and people leading us along the way! Everyone was helpful and friendly! It is a trip of a life time! Would love to come back one day!
