Tour to South Africa
From 19/Aug/19 (18 Av) to 26/Aug/19 (25 AV)
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 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 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.
