South African Adventure

Up to off this trip

Trip Overview


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…

This trip has a camping option, so you can experience a once-in-a lifetime rustic African adventure - just don't forget to pack a sleeping bag, if that's your vibe.

    Touch down in Joburg, meet the group and don’t forget to pinch yourself – you’re in Africa baby! Stock up on snacks and plug in the AUX cord, we’re kick-starting the adventure with an overland journey to Kruger National Park. Looking for the real South Africa? This is it. Before the day’s done, we’ll get our first taste of the great outdoors on a game drive. Hold up – is that an elephant? This is going to be two wild weeks.
