South Africa tour overview

South Africa is one of the most interesting countries with an incomparable range of experiences. People from all over the world flock to its shores for its natural beauty, wildlife and sunshine. South Africa’s immensely varied terrain supports a rich diversity of animals, birds and plant life.

The South Africa Explorer small group safari is a combination of the best of the best. This tour is guaranteed to depart, with two people or a maximum of just ten travellers for a very personal introduction to this amazing African nation.

It all starts in Cape Town, travelling through the celebrated Garden Route and experiencing its warm hospitality, quirky towns and then on to Johannesburg. In Johannesburg, a historical insight into the country’s apartheid struggle years and its liberation, is a fascinating and heart-wrenching narrative, a story that needs to be told.

A trip to South Africa would be incomplete without visiting the Kruger National Park, where wildlife encounters and open vehicle game drives will have the spirit of Africa coursing through your veins.
