Highlights of the tour

Visit 3 of the main regions in South Africa in just 3 weeks!

Johannesburg is a fascinating, captivating and astounding city with so much to offer ranging from the joys of the big economical city life with all the bright lights as well as the stark contrast of townships like Soweto which is permeated with so much history originating from apartheid and is bustling with energy of the city of gold. Soweto is perfect for those wanting to experience true Africa and for the traveler looking for more than sun, sea and the big five. Soak in the sights and smells of all that South Africa has to offer and go bungee jumping off the Orlando Towers, spend a day giving back at one of our orphanages and visit the administration capital of South Africa – Pretoria.

Greater Kruger Area is just what you need to experience a taste of the African bush lifestyle. Our bush lodge is located 30 minutes away from one of the Kruger National Park Entrance gates and don’t forget your binoculars to spot the awe inspiring Big 5. A trip through the Panorama Route is a fabulous sightseeing adventure with attractions like the Blyde River Canyon which is the third largest canyon in the world, the inspiring Lisbon falls and for the brave at heart the Graskop Big Swing.

The accommodation at Kruger offers a swimming pool, honesty bar, campfire, viewing deck above the waterhole and bushwalk trails through the property to keep busy with any free time you may find.

Cape Town, an iconic city with so much to offer as it’s a city alive with stunning natural beauty, amazing historical sites like Robben Island and Cape Point where two oceans meet, as well award winning restaurants and is without a doubt the tourist hub of South Africa, your final destination is where you will begin with the end of your busy tour through our beautiful country. Cape Town is situated on the coastline of South Africa boasting magnificent views of Table Mountain, Atlantic and Indian oceans, some of the best wineries in the world, exciting nightlife and gorgeous beaches for lazy days.

Our hostel in located right in the hub of the city and has easy access to transportation routes. The Waterfront is our neighbor so feel

Overall this is the chance of a lifetime to fall in love with South Africa and its very diverse culture, local cuisines and gorgeous landscapes.
