HIGHLIGHTS

Our tour begins in the Mother City, Cape Town, which is home to one of the Seven Natural Wonders, Table Mountain, and has also been ranked as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. This is followed by a tour of the third most populous city in the country, Durban - also known as ‘Surf City’- located on the east coast of South Africa. The Durban Harbour is one of the busiest ports in Africa and the miles of golden beaches bring plenty of tourists who come to enjoy the warm waters of the Indian Ocean as well as the wildlife reserves found further north. We finish off our trip in the ‘City of Gold’, Johannesburg, or affectionately known as ‘Jozi’. This is the largest city in South Africa and the centre of commerce and industry; as with most big cities, the energy levels are high and the pace a lot faster. History will unfold as we navigate these roads and enter the heartbeat of the nation.  The unique landscapes, cultures, and atmosphere of these destinations will paint a brilliant picture of South Africa’s extraordinary diversity.
