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.

Great trip all round Reviewed Tour: 6-Day Classic Kruger Park Safari
5 - Excellent
  • Carl Daft
  • From Britain
“Very well organised from start to finish. All staff friendly and professional and got to see and do a lot during the trip. Saw a big pride of lions very close up within 10 minutes on our first drive and saw all of the big five over the six days - including lots of elephants, many more than expected! Also had two separate leopard sightings which was a treat. Accommodation was clean and comfortable and meals were all good too. All-in-all a very pleasant and enjoyable experience and would definitely recommend.”
Very nice Reviewed Tour: Overnight Safari at Garden Route Game Lodge

  • Patrick Ryan
  • From Ireland
“over all we had a very pleasant stay at the game lodge, our guide Kevin Mc Carthy was a really pleasant and very helpfull guide. Our only issues were being told to be at the park for 11am instead of 2pm, but otherwise we couldnt find fault.

  • 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.

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.
