Delve Deep: South Africa (Safari)

Up to off this trip

Trip Overview

(Previously called: South African Adventure) TRIP VIBE = iconic sights and in-depth adventures with a local Trip Leader. Forget the mainstream checklist, this trip is its own Big Five – BIG on wildlife, BIG on the outdoors, BIG on culture, BIG on views and BIG on having a sick time. Oh, and the wine here is pretty bloody good too. On this one, adventure is seriously an understatement.

Worth noting…
The price displayed on this page is for the camping option. DW before you complete your booking, you’ll get to choose whether you stay in accommodation or mostly camp on this trip. Keen to experience Africa the rustic way? Don’t forget to pack a sleeping bag!
