South Africa tours

There are two ways to tour South Africa – on a guided small group tour or independently on a self-drive itinerary. Our escorted tours are intimate with small group numbers, knowledgeable tour leaders and immersive experiences included. Choose from introductory or in-depth escorted tours that start in Cape Town and are packed with activities like the Table Mountain cable car, wine tastings and time at leisure to explore on your own.

Self-driving in South Africa is easy and convenient as you can set your own pace and weave in smaller stops along the way. We’ve crafted suggested itineraries that are fully flexible so you can create your own tailored route.

For a languid and luxurious way of travelling, choose a rail journey in South Africa. Pass through serene landscapes on board reclaimed vintage carriages on routes including Pretoria, Cape Town and an utterly romantic passage to Victoria Falls Bridge.
