“A great trip, having thoroughly enjoyed the Cape Town to Victoria Falls some years ago, I was keen to experience a different part of South Africa. I was not disappointed. This was a great trip saw and experienced so many different and wonderful views of wild life including whales, good walking , a variety of accommodation and great food.”

“The trip was everything we hoped it would be. Loads of animals, birds, wonderful scenery and fantastic people. The success of a trip is is dependant on many things but we were fortunate to have a great itinerary, a group of like minded travellers and, most importantly, outstanding guides. It is a trip full of superlatives.”

“An excellent trip involving 8 nights camping. The camping is being replaced by lodges/chalets in 2016 so the venues may be the same in some wonderful locations such as the shoreline at Tsitsikamma but the experience will be different. Some long drives in order to cover 4400 kms in less than 3 weeks but the roads are very good with adequate toilet/coffee stops at petrol stations and supermarkets for stock-ups. Great variety of wildlife, scenery, history, and people. Borders crossed quickly.”

“I really enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it- the tour offered the opportunity to see a lot of Southern Africa - I started the reverse itinerary in Cape Town, a beautiful city with plenty to do. There are many highlights on this trip - the landscapes and wildlife were spectacular- we saw the big 5 several times including leopard on 3 consecutive days. Many of the other highlights are outlined in the trip notes and I won't repeat them here. Our guides Justin and Fiona were excellent. This was the first fully accommodated tour offered by Exodus for this journey and all our accommodation was clean and of a good standard. The transport was spacious with regular stops on the long driving days. On one of our walks in Lesotho, the rain and hail came down and a grandma from the village invited us to take shelter in her home - the people here are very accommodating. During our trip, there were some water restrictions due to the worst drought in Southern Africa since the eighties but there was always the opportunity to get a shower every day. Similarly, a couple of places either had no electricity or restrictions on when it was available. The general standard of the local guides was good with some such as Thulani, a Zulu guide, at Rourke's drift outstanding and others still gaining experience. With the depreciation of the rand, South Africa is very cheap compared to the UK.”

5 - Excellent
“This was a great trip, showing off the main sights of South Africa, with the added bonus of Lesotho & Swaziland. Although there were some long driving days, we were a small group of 6 who gelled really well & had a very competent staff of 3. Personally I felt the Garden Route was overrated, so I was pleased that I'd done the reverse itinerary as this saved the best until last. But I certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend the trip.”

“Much better than would or could ever have thought. An all round brilliant experience that ticked every box and more. The highlights just kept getting better and better on a schedule that had us all on a high from one day to the next. The size and makeup in relation to characteristics and personalities worked so well and that included guides who went out of their way to ensure everyone was 'catered' for. .”

“This was a fantastic trip from Cape Town to Johannesburg, showing off the scenery and wildlife of South Africa at its best. Blessed with fantastic weather throughout the 3 weeks, and as it was in the dry season the grasses were low, we had amazing views of the country and all it had to offer. We had 2 wine tasting sessions at Stellenbosch, saw the penguins at Boulder, had lunch in a garden restaurant while watching whales in the bay, saw beer making in Lesotho and visited Rourke's Drift. We spent time in Kruger Park, as well as visitin g Cape Vidal and Edeni Game reserves and had a river cruise at St Lucia to see the hippo and birds. It was everything I hoped for and so much more.”

Johannesburg - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

A city founded on gold-mining, it’s no surprise that Johannesburg is a center of economic wealth. However, the success of Johannesburg not only lies in commerce, but in culture as well. Despite being set in a Savannah, a trip to Johannesburg will bring you to one of the world’s largest urban forests. Stark contrasts lie between neighbourhoods where the rich live in high-security compounds while the poor live in undesirable homes. With a population so diverse in background and affluence, there is no dominative language, though English is a common language. So what is Johannesburg? A city of contradictions. A trip to Johannesburg will show you the two sides of South Africa: urban and natural.

Travel Highlights

  • To learn the history of Johannesburg and SA, the Apartheid Museum is unmissable.
  • Constitution Hill is key attraction to visit in Johannesburg, where Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi were once held.
  • Maboneng is the hip neighbourhood right now and Arts on Main is an up-and-coming art center come Sunday Market.
  • Mary Fitzgerald Square, and the adjacent Jazz Walk of Fame, is the place to start exploring central Johannesburg.
  • The Carlton Center is the tallest building in Africa. Shop on the lower floors or shoot up to the top for the observation deck.
  • The City Hall is a beautiful example of colonial architecture.
  • Get active and head to Zoo Lake where you can run, paddle and row your way around the busy park.

Travel Tips

  • You can holiday in Johannesburg at any time of year, thanks to a great climate. Though summer months of December and January are especially beautiful.
  • Beware of petty crime and avoid walking alone or in small groups at night time.
  • Tourists are recommended to drink bottled water, though tap water is safe.
  • If you plan to visit townships such as Soweto, take a guided tour.
  • Using public transport isn’t recommended but tour buses, taxis and rental cars are all good options.
