Join us on an unforgettable adventure to see the majestic wildlife and spectacular scenery of South Africa.

Nothing compares to a Jeep safari at sunrise as we drive through the iconic Kruger National Park – bigger than Israel – to see lions, leopards, rhinoceros, elephants, giraffe and buffaloes greet the new day.

We’ll also take a boat trip to spot whales, dolphins and seals, we’ll see African penguins waddling at the Cape of Good Hope, huge ostrich sprinting at up to 45mph . . . and we’ll probably chance upon wild baboon crossing the road.

This is a country with a beauty all of its own with towering cliffs, beautiful forests, stunning beaches, crystal-clear waters . . .  and arguably the world’s greatest sunsets.

Highlights of our itinerary include the Garden Route, taking in 300km of rugged, non-stop beauty and some of the country’s richest botanical treasures as it winds along the east coast.

And Table Mountain – one of the Seven Wonders of the World – which dominates the Cape Town skyline.

Cable cars take you up to another world, with unbelievable city views and the chance to see its famous dassies – a peculiar rodent relative of the elephant.
