What travelers say about their South Africa tours

A Trip of a Lifetime!
09/06/19 by 5th-time traveler Mary
Our experiences in South Africa cannot be matched. Much thanks to our tour director, Chris. His knowledge of the country gave the trip depth as to its history, geography, agriculture, and so much more. It takes your breath away when a bull elephant suddenly appears beside your vehicle!
South Africa: A Journey of Discovery
Simply Amazing!
12/12/19 by 3rd-time traveler Fantasha
There were so many beautiful sites that we were able to go to. Being at the Cape of Good was a surreal experience. The scenery was just beautiful! The food and accommodations were excellent, especially in Cape Town, which I fell in love with.

Truly a Journey of Discovery!

This trip to South Africa was the most interesting and wonderful trip, and my favorite trip. My two grandchildren and I saw so much, did so much, and learned so much. South Africa is beautiful and different, the people are warm and friendly all over.

Travel tips for South Africa trips

South Africa is home to unbelievable natural scenery, vibrant culture, colorful architecture, and deep history. As a result, there are so many things to do on South Africa tours. Here are some of our favorite things to do:

  • Take a cable car up Table Mountain, South Africa’s most iconic landmark
  • Hike along the Cape of Good Hope and see where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet
  • Spend a day in Cape Town, an oceanside city with malls, restaurants, gardens, history, and yes, even penguins
  • Explore Soweto township, once home to both Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu
  • Take a ferry to Robben Island, the historic symbol of apartheid, where Nelson Mandela was jailed
  • Go on a safari in Kruger National Park and try to spot the Big Five: elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo, and rhinoceroses
