Tours to South Africa

With some of the most spectacular scenery on the planet, and arguably its finest wildlife, it’s no surprise that South Africans call their homeland “a world in one country”. Your South Africa tour holiday will take you through landscapes ranging from rocky canyons and lagoons to lush forests, grasslands and savannah – as climates veer from Mediterranean to sub-tropical and desert. Some 53 million people speaking no less than eleven official languages live in this country that’s five times the size of Britain. It’s a sure sign of a pluralistic, multi-ethnic society – a real “rainbow nation” that brings together a fascinating variety of different cultures. South Africa is truly a
world-class destination, and a wonderful choice for your tour. For anyone who wants to get close up to the natural world at its very best, a tour of South Africa is an unforgettable treat. Imagine the thrill of meeting the penguins who live on Boulders Beach, watching whales as they swim in the waters of the magnificent Hermanus coastline, or seeing wallowing hippos from the open air terrace of your hotel. And there’s simply nothing to match the excitement of the Kruger National Park, where the sights of roaming elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards, giraffes and buffalo will live with you forever.
But the history that you’ll discover on your South Africa tour is every bit as fascinating as its extraordinary wildlife. At the Cape of Good Hope, you’ll feel yourself transported back to the 17th century origins of Cape Town and the Dutch East India Company. The legendary battles of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift - scenes of desperate conflict between British Empire forces and Zulus armed only with shields and spears - will come alive through our specialist Zulu guide. And the Apartheid Museum of Johannesburg will give you a unique insight into the birth of contemporary South Africa – an unmissable part of your tour.
