What awaits you

South Africa is a truly unique place on this planet. The country has so much to offer, from the Big Five in beautiful national parks like the Amakhala Reserve, to a special landscape and animal diversity with African penguins, whales and white sharks on the coasts of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, to pure enjoyment on South Africa's countless wine estates. We invite you to join us on our South Africa round trip through this magical country. We discover elephants, giraffes and lions at the waterhole, go on a canoe tour on the Touw River and enjoy the delicious wine of South Africa on different, selected wine estates.

Important information

How are you doing with travel in times of Corona?

If the trip cannot take place due to Covid, as a vaccinated person you can rebook for another date or trip free of charge or get your money back. Feel free to check out our page Covid safe travel where we have collected some FAQ around the topic.

Do you offer trip cancellation insurance?

Should you not be able to fly for health reasons, there is a Travel cancellation insurancee.g. from HanseMerkur, which (also) covers a covid infection before the start of the trip.

Can I arrive earlier or leave later?

You can individually plan a few days in advance or add a few days to all our trips, as it suits you best. Of course, we are also happy to give you tips for accommodation!

With whom do I share a double room?

By default, you will share a double room with a person of the same sex, but you are also welcome to book a single room.

What does your collaboration with local partners look like in concrete terms?

For us, supporting locals means working only with local guides, staying in local, family-run hotels, and eating at local restaurants. We often have a social/environmental cause that we incorporate into our trips (from volunteering at a wildlife rescue center in Namibia to the support of Buddhist monks in Nepal in their daily work or visiting a school in a Soviet ghost town in Kyrgyzstan and bringing soccer balls, books, pens, etc.).

General information

Please note that the itinerary, activities and hotels may be subject to change. These changes may occur without notice due to availability, inclement weather, seasonal changes or other circumstances beyond our control. We will always do our best to ensure that this has little or no impact on your experience.

How much should you tip the guide?

The amount of tip is not fixed. But we would recommend a tip between 3 and 6€ per person per day. If there is a driver in addition to your guide for the day, it would be nice if the tip would be split.
