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.

Vic Falls to Kruger

Henry · Traveled May 2023
This is a trip with great potential and the guides and food were amazing. Unfortunately, the bus is not fit for purpose. It is very bumpy, no suspension, very uncomfortable. Bear in mind this tip has ~100 hours of being on a coach in 18 days... I wouldn't take this unless Intrepid upgrade the bus.

Kruger to Vic Falls

Fiona · Traveled April 2023
Our first trip to Africa, saw lots of wild life, climbed a gorge, saw the most spectacular sunset over the Salt Pans and had the best rain shower every at Victoria Falls. Intrepid beat my expectations once again.

Kruger to Vic Falls

Juan · Traveled April 2023
I had such an amazing time in this tour, Spah and the crew were incredible, we made friends from life with the rest of the group, we experienced a great variety of activities, places and got to see the beauty of Africa. Wish I was able to travel longer with the rest and see many more things! Hopefully soon again

The garden route is an amazing trip. Intrepid takes you off the beaten path and shows you incredible places.
