Cape Town Tours and Holidays 2024/2025

The capital of South Africa and one of the world’s most recognisable cities, Cape Town - or the Mother City as it is often known - is a cacophony of cultures that has worked hard to establish peaceful coexistence. Nowadays Christians, Muslims and Hindus rub shoulders with the traditional African practices that are indigenous to South Africa. After a turbulent past, every culture and lifestyle is accepted as a key ingredient to Cape Town’s unique flavour. The result of such an inclusive atmosphere? A creative freedom that has painted the city in every colour and pattern imaginable. From the natural wonders of Table Mountain to the local goods of Bay Harbour Market, holidays to Cape Town is a feast for the senses.

This trip provided a very varied experience showcasing both the animals and the scenery of the countries we passed through. We weren't sure what to expect from camping in Africa and the facilities on offer, although basic at times, surpassed our expectations. We did the trip from 16 June - 5 July, and benefitted from seeing Victoria Falls in full flow, uncrowded campsites and great weather (though a couple of nights and early mornings were cold until the sun was up). Not sure if we were just lucky, but we saw no rain until Cape Town. Every day provided a new adventure and made the early starts and long journeys on some days absolutely worth it. We couldn't have asked for a better 'introduction' to Africa.

Just completed the impeccable South Africa tour with Hollie Sullivan as our amazing leader. We completely struck gold getting Hollie as our leader, she made us feel super safe and was able to cater to everyone s needs whilst making sure we had the trip of a lifetime! Her exemplary knowledge and understanding of the country kept us on our toes throughout the trip. Her high spirits every day radiated to everyone in the group producing a conductive, upbeat atmosphere which is exactly what is needed when spending nearly every moment of every day together. The entire trip was run so smoothly and stress free for us and Hollie was quick to resolve any unplanned problems. We were able to explore so much of what South Africa has to offer from learning extensive knowledge about their history and culture to immersing ourselves into an unforgettable safari. This trip truly does give you the most incredible experiences and Hollie goes above and beyond to make sure everyone indulges into it all and takes it all in. This tour really is an experience that will be with you for the rest of your life with the people you meet along the way and everything you get to see with your own eyes. If you re lucky enough to get Hollie as your leader just know you re about to have the best 12 days of your life! From the moment I arrived to the moment I left I felt happy and content, Hollie is an asset to intro travel, she s super knowledgeable, fun and and energetic to be around, she was accommodating and no request was too big or too small, she s everything you could want in a guide! Every single day was more magical than the rest so thank you Hollie, we were so lucky to get you! Your passion for South Africa and travelling was contagious so can I come back and do it all again??? ¤i¸ I have just come off a group tour in Japan with our tour guide Anna Holling. I just wanted to express how fortunate I felt to have her lead us around Japan!! She made us feel calm and so safe in such a busy and stressful place. Her commendable knowledge and intellect kept us acquainted with all things culture and fun facts throughout the entire trip, her extensive knowledge of the country helped us with so many recommendations of what to do during our free time to make sure we could fit in everything we wanted. Her constant energy and high spirits radiated to all of us and produced a positive fun environment to be around every single day. I felt welcomed with open arms from the first day with her kindness and passion and it had me not wanting to leave, Anna is everything you could ever want and more in a tour leader and she truly does help complete an experience of a lifetime. The entire trip was run so smoothly and stress free for us due to Anna s confidence and her above and beyond ability to cater to everyone s needs, making it her priority to make sure everyone had an unforgettable experience. We were able to explore the best of what Japan has to offer from indulging in the local cuisine and immersing ourselves into the multifaceted culture with the incredible experiences this trip has lined up. If you re lucky enough to get Anna as your group leader you re about to have a trip of a lifetime. This memorable intro trip made me smile and laugh my way through Japan, I could not recommend this tour enough (I would literally do it again), it really is an experience that will be with you for the rest of your life, along with the amazing people you meet along the way. So thankyou to Anna for being the catalyst of our trip of a lifetime ¤i¸ 10/10 countries 10/10 activities 10/10 accommodation 100000000000000000/10 leaders

We had a wonderful adventure visiting four countries in Africa with our excellent guides Petrus and Ende. They worked tirelessly to ensure we were safe, well fed, comfortable and happy. Our group consisted of 8 of us plus the 2 leaders which made for a very comfortable time on the Bruck as we had lots of space. Our tents were new and very easy and quick to put up and take down. The campsites were all different and it's hard to choose a favourite as they all had something special about them, they all had swimming pools and free WiFi (very slow and usually only at reception or bar). The showers and washroom facilities were sometimes excellent and sometimes basic but always adequate. The meals were varied with plenty of vegetables and salad and huge portions. This is an amazingly diverse itinerary, so well thought out, and you get to see the a range of different landscapes and incredible wildlife.
