Southern Africa Explorer

An excellent, value for money trip. My sister was especially impressed, having little previous experience of camping. The office did an excellent job dealing with our booking.

Kruger, Coast and Cape in Comfort

This diverse tour takes us on an inspiring journey from Johannesburg to Cape Town, where we stay in quality accommodation, selected for its unique location and character, whilst we traverse the great parks of this magnificent corner of Africa. We observe the teeming animal life of Kruger National Park, where we search for Africa's 'Big Five', before heading to the Kingdom of Swaziland, and the Milwane Game Reserve, one of the Royal Wildlife Reserves. We visit the area of northern Kwa Zulu-Natal Province, populated by mainly Zulu people, and the World Heritage Drakensberg Mountains. We make our way to the Free State province, taking in spectacular views of the Gariep Dam and visiting the historic town of Cradock. In Addo Elephant National Park, home of large herds of elephant, lion and numerous antelope species, we enjoy a game drive. Continuing west along the Garden Route, our journey is rounded off with a visit to Groot Constantia, the oldest wine estate in South Africa. Arriving in Cape Town, we explore this vibrant city, visiting Cape Point Nature Reserve and making an ascent of Table Mountain by cable car for panoramic views of the city and coastline.
