“A fantastic tour, with a great group. Cape Town was nice, but the best of South Africa is its nature, I think. Loved the Garden route - so many great spots. I liked the overall arrangement so much, so that I've already booked my next trip.”
Fantastic holiday

“This is a great introduction to South Africa. The trips are varied with optional activities available. The scenery is stunning and the minibus is comfortable and air conditioned. We tried the zip lining which was well worth experiencing. The restaurants were excellent and we ate far too much, regretting it a bit now! Our accommodation was very comfortable and most had fantastic views.”
