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.
The Garden Route (DAGR)
Mild temperatures, lush forests and supreme comfort aren’t what many people think of when they hear ‘Africa’. But then again, few people explore South Africa’s Western Cape. It’s their loss, really; this trip incorporates an unbeatable combination of beaches, coves, cuisine and accommodation. And there’s plenty of the other Africa on hand, too; the region’s ruggedly beautiful scenery guarantees you’ll get plenty of both the Africa you know—and the one you just fell in love with.
Highlights: Stopping to take in spectacular views along Route 62, exploring the fascinating Cango Caves, hiking in Tsitsikamma National Park, testing out the local cuisine with a traditional braai (barbecue), taking in the beauty of the world-famous Garden Route.
Kruger & the Garden Route (DAKG)
Two wildly divergent—and equally authentic—sides of Africa, one incredible life-changing trip! Designed especially for the comfort-minded traveller, this adventure merges the world-famous wildlife of South Africa with the equally wondrous (and less-explored) natural grace of the fabled Garden Route over 12 extraordinary days. Wildlife excursions in Kruger National Park will bring you closer to the Big Five than any nature documentary, and relaxing evenings spent sipping wine and dining in style on the glorious southeastern coast make for a truly unforgettable experience.
Highlights: Taking in spectacular views along Route 62, hiking in Tsitsikamma National Park, Marvelling in the beauty of the world-famous Garden Route, Snapping some great photos of the Big Five on open vehicle game drives in Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, spotting more wildlife inside world-famous Kruger National Park.
