South Africa

Please note that these are tailor made itineraries and not escorted tours.

We have two distinctly different tours operating within South Africa - all geared to providing you with a very unique perspective of this wonderful country of ours. The 18-Day Overland Explorer offers a meander from Johannesburg to Cape Town via the 'scenic route' taking in the splendours of the Lowveld - including our own Balule Bush Camp, Kruger National Park, Swaziland, northern Zululand and then swinging inland through the wonderful Free State Highlands before entering the Karoo en-route to Cape Town. The 5-Day Kruger Park Safari is tailor-made for those wanting a wonderful taste of our renowned bushveld, Drifters style. Lots of games, and lots of exquisite scenery courtesy of the Mpumalanga Lowveld with quaint, historic towns, majestic waterfalls and ancient mountain ranges.
