    Explore Southern Africa was poorly run - time was not well utilized, communication between the tour guides was non-existent (the Victoria Falls guide supposedly tried to tell the Kruger guide what type of Zimbabwe visa to purchase upon entry, but the message never got through; a guest had a dietary constraint that was never communicate throughout the tour), and one of the guides was downright rude - it's unbelievable he's even in the travel industry. I wrote to G Adventures about my concerns after the tour ended, but they never followed up with me.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • April 1, 2017

    The fact that the south African School holiday falls at the end of Sept/beginning Oct made a difference to it being busier at that time?

    Yes, during the school holidays, local families may also be travelling and holiday destinations in the country may be busier.

What are people saying about TourRadar?

  • James12th May 2018
    I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
