“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.”

“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.”

South Africa - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Every country is diverse, but beating South Africa at diversity is something that most cannot do. The country is home to all kinds of sights and attractions, all sorts of natural features and every imaginable experience. It makes the most of its position in the most beautiful continent through a range of iconic landscapes such as the sight of penguins in the Cape, the Table Mountain, hippos of the Limpopo River, the lions and crocodiles of the Kruger National Park, the various ecosystems of iSimangaliso Wetland Park and those exotic wildflowers of Namakwa.

South Africa witnessed a miraculous transformation from being a racial mess to becoming one of the pioneering countries that redefined mankind, brotherhood and democracy. Today, the country proudly welcomes more than 9 million visitors each year and presents a country that is no longer defined by its racial divide. Today, all that matters are those beautiful sights, those remarkable feats of engineering and that rich enviable lifestyle, and their natural fauna and flora.

Travel Highlights

  • Explore the modern city of Cape Town.
  • See the sights in Johannesburg, such as the Cradle of Humankind—an archaeological site that is filled with history and wildlife.
  • Learn of South Africa’s history at the Apartheid museum.
  • Marvel at the Boulder’s Penguin Colony.
  • Experience the gentle giants, elephants, at Addo Elephant National Park.
  • Tour the South African wine country, in the Winelands.
  • Visit Robben Island, and stand in the shoes of Nelson Mandela.
  • Drive along the Garden Route and see the coast of South Africa.

Travel Tips

  • When on a holiday in South Africa, try not to be too flashy in what you wear in order to draw less attention to yourself.
  • While most of South Africa is malaria free, if you go north, come prepared with malaria pills.
  • Bring clothes for warm weather, but also prepare for cooler evenings.
  • If driving in a car, keep the doors locked and windows up at all times. If people try to approach you, ignore them.
  • Mobile coverage is simple to get and available.
  • Be prepared to veer off the beaten path. For example, visit Seal Island, off the coast of Cape Town.

South Africa has seasonal weather so please do check up on the best time to visit South Africa before planning your tour. And if you’re still hunting for more things to do and places to explore in South Africa, do check out our South Africa Travel Guide for more information.
