SOUTH AFRICA

For those wishing to enjoy travel on a budget, the beautiful country of South Africa has endless activities and tours on offer. A rich diversity in culture and landscape makes South Africa one of the top destinations in southern Africa for tourism. With its beautiful mountain landscapes, vast deserts, white sandy beaches, and an abundance of game reserves and National Parks, South Africa truly has something on offer for everyone.

Cape Town

This spectacular city is considered one of the top tourist spots in the world, with a multitude of adventures to be had within Cape Town, as well as being the major starting point for most overland trips and budget safaris. The attractions include hiking up Table Mountain or partaking in one of the many adventure tours like skydiving, sandboarding or even Great White Shark diving. Also famous for its wine regions, Cape Town is a great place to do a wine tour through scenic Constantia, Stellenbosch or Paarl.

The Garden Route, Wild Coast and St Lucia

Situated along the coast between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth you will find the famous Garden Route. We offer a host of Adventure Tours and Safaris along this route to suite every kind of traveller.

A little further north, the region that runs from East London all the way up to Durban is known as the Wild Coast. Boasting kilometres of unspoiled beaches, this coastline is not as built-up as the Garden Route, and offers a unique and more isolated South African adventure.

St Lucia, located just above Durban, is an amazing hub for both land and aquatic safaris. The warm Indian Ocean water means exceptional diving and snorkelling is available, for those keen to see the Big Five of the ocean and other sea life.

Drakensberg and Kruger National Park

From the busy city of Durban you are easily able to access the Drakensberg Mountain Range, which runs from the centre of South Africa, through Lesotho, and right up to the Kruger National Park. The highest peaks are found bordering the country of Lesotho.

Further north you will find the cultural hub of Johannesburg, the biggest city in South Africa.

To the east of Joburg in the Limpopo Province, and forming the border between South Africa and Mozambique, you will find the mighty Kruger National Park. This massive park is one of the largest in Africa, roughly the size of the country of Wales or the State of New Jersey. It boasts a huge array and concentration of animals, including all of the Big Five, and is the perfect place to go on an cheap African safari, as well as a popular stop-off on a cross-country African overland trip.

A country offering amazing landscapes, adrenaline-filled adventures, exciting game drives, and diverse, friendly cultures – What more could you ask for? Browse through our related tours below or explore specific regions to find tours and safaris going through South Africa.
