South Africa Tours and Safaris
More than a decade after Mandela's release, democratic, post-apartheid South Africa is still defining itself, sloughing off a nagging racist image. While Cape Town with its Table Mountain backdrop is worth a visit, you'll want to get out of the city to experience South Africa to its fullest. Aside from the diversity of indigenous crafts and vivid traditional dress, there's just so much to do: surf world class waves, dive the many wrecks off the Cape of Good Hope or sip your way through wine country. Whether you're walking an endless beach or roaming Kruger in pursuit of the Big five (for the record, that's leopard, lion, elephant, rhino and buffalo), it seems there's finally room for everyone in South Africa.
Kruger, Falls & Zimbabwe (DZKF)
When it comes to raw, in-your-face wildness, southern Africa can’t be topped. This trip offers a fully immersive, unyieldingly authentic experience of the natural and cultural wonders of this incredible region. In Zimbabwe’s Matobo National Park, you’ll track rhinos on foot and the resident wildlife on an open-vehicle game drive, capture the Big Five (with your camera, of course) in South Africa’s Kruger National Park and witness the unique traditional dances of the Shangaan people. This isn’t a taste of Africa; it’s a full-course meal—with seconds.
Highlights: Spotting the Big Five in Kruger National Park, gazing out across Victoria Falls, walking in search of rhinos, observing wildlife from a 4x4 in Matobo National Park, witnessing Shangaan traditions, discovering the less-visited Zimbabwe.
Dunes, Deltas and Falls (DZLD)
If you want to soak up the colours, culture and scenery of this incredible region, this is the ultimate expedition into southwestern Africa. Experience game drives, leave footprints on the world's highest sand dunes, wonder at the majesty of Victoria Falls and canoe game-rich deltas. Our overland trucks are an adventurous and inexpensive way to see the highlights while wilderness camping will bring you closer to the region’s wildlife—drift off to sleep to the call of cranes and awake to the rustle of elephants grazing on nearby riverbanks.
Highlights: Tracking the 'Big 5', witnessing Victoria Falls, cruising the Chobe River at sunset, camping in African wilderness, meeting the San bushmen, trying adrenaline activities, soak up Cape Town's culture.
