There may be no other country on the planet that contains such a rich collection of worlds as South Africa, from the urbanity of Cape Town to the wild game lands of Kruger, with a taste of just about everything in between. You’ll get to experience it all on this customizable journey—this South Africa trip itinerary is just a starting point. With in-country experts leading the way, you’ll explore cosmopolitan Johannesburg; the Cape’s vineyard-strewn mountains (and world-class vintages), penguin-dotted coast, and incredible restaurants and galleries; and, if you wish, one of the world’s most revered national parks.
This was planned as the trip of a lifetime, and it was. It greatly exceeded expectations, especially in the safari experiences and in the richness of our guide experiences in Cape Town and Johannesburg, not to mention that we stayed in some of the best hotels and camps we have ever experienced. Extraordinary!– JIM L.
