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.

South Africa Tour Reviews

5 - Excellent
Based on 386 customer reviews
Great trip all round
5 - Excellent
  • Carl Daft
“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.”

“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.”

“Francis our guide was super! very professional and informative. Tour itself was also very nice, as expected, and we saw all big 5! Lodge was great, i would have loved to stay there one more night!”

  • 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.
