Our 12-day South Africa tours go beyond the ordinary with amazing travel experiences that include game drives in two of the most sought-after private game reserves – stay in the heart of the reserves, where you just might spot leopards, lions, elephants, impalas, and zebras. Attend wine tastings, special presentations and lectures with local experts... and experience the vast legacy of cultural and natural history in Cape Town, Robben Island, Johannesburg, and Soweto. Learn more about the struggle against apartheid, travel up Table Mountain for extraordinary views of "the end of the continent," and meet some elephants during your two-night stay at Victoria Falls – a highlight of our South Africa tours. And when you cruise the Zambezi River at sunset... you know that South Africa has a place in your heart forever more. You'll find yourself immersed in the Earth Journeys experience, featuring on-tour films by BBC Earth natural history experts and when the opportunity arises, the use of field equipment such as night vision goggles and FLIR® thermal camera imaging that reveal the secret nocturnal life of South Africa's wildlife, providing a rare look at what is normally hidden in darkness.
