Experience the best of South Africa on an escorted tour, a decadent train or tailor-make your own self-drive itinerary
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.
Many of our self-drives include a safari in South Africa's best wildlife-spotting areas, like Kruger National Park and the malaria-free Eastern Cape. Go for the classic combination of Cape Town and an Eastern Cape on our Safari and the City suggested itinerary, or take your pick from our amazing featured lodges to add to our Essential South Africa escorted tour.
For a languid and luxurious way of travelling, choose a rail journey in South Africa. Pass through serene landscapes onboard reclaimed vintage carriages on routes including Pretoria, Cape Town and an utterly romantic passage to Victoria Falls Bridge.
