South Africa Tours & Trips

Ever wanted to do a road trip on a Harley Davidson? Or perhaps ride an ostrich, walk with elephants or even swim with lions? Take your pick of the tours through South Africa, from a visit to Kruger National Park (est. 1898) with perhaps the greatest variety of wildlife in Africa, to the historic battlefields of Zululand. A cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain is breathtaking, as is the world’s highest bungy jump at Bloukrans.

South Africa Tours & Trips Reviews

  • "This Africa tour was amazing. Some of the highlights were the cheese and wine tasting, canoeing in the wilderness, the great accommodation and the tour guide (Maudy) was awesome as he gave us information about the Garden Route and the history of South Africa. It was such a memorable experience."
