Your Destination

South Africa is an amazing country offering a remarkable diversity of sights and attractions, from beautiful beaches to exotic wildlife, soaring mountains and sprawling vineyards producing world class wine. 

On this tour you will encounter its scenic beauty and majestic wildlife, embarking on safaris boasting a rich biodiversity of mammals such as Africa's Big Five, cheetah, wild dog, brown and spotted hyena, oryx, eland, springbok and ostrich.

Johannesburg, or Jo’burg as it more commonly known, is South Africa’s largest city, situated on an interior plateau known as the Highveld. Johannesburg is one of South Africa’s key gateway cities and offers an array of exciting sightseeing options. There's something for everyone - museums that examine the country's apartheid past, the city's exciting new Constitutional Court, a look at the city's gold mining beginnings, traditional African medicine or muti and plenty of animals and outdoor fun.
