South Africa has long been a popular destination for travelers looking for a remarkable safari tour. Its national parks are great spots for watching the ‘Big 5’ (lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalos) and a whole herd of other animals. When you’re ready to reconnect with civilization, a quick trip to coastal Cape Town or bustling Johannesburg does the trick! A South Africa tour is a complete vacation option.

“On the whole I would go with Explore again. The people were great. I do hope somebody reads this feedback though as a few tweaks to how the trips are run could make a good trip great. ”

“Fantastic trip - the tweaks I suggest would improve it but despite that, it was another excellent Explore tour.”
Fabulous Trip, Fabulous Country!
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“A great trip to a fabulous country - having never been to South Africa before it surpassed all my expectations; the landscapes were amazing, the food was universally delicious, and the people were friendly and welcoming throughout. Although I have been on several Exodus trips before, this was my first Exodus Edits trip, and although for us some of the itinerary was impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, I would definitely recommend the trip. The itinerary was varied and packed a lot in to a short space of time, and included the very active (climbing table mountain) to the very relaxing (wine tasting in Stellenbosch), with the highlight for me definitely being visiting and kayaking with the penguins at Boulders Beach.”

South Africa — Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

With 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 is one of the most diverse countries in the world.

South Africa holiday allows you to experience its beautiful sights and the natural fauna and flora.

Tour 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.

Holiday Tips

  • When on a South Africa holiday, 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 on your South Africa tour. For example, visit Seal Island, off the coast of Cape Town.
