2015 Prices From $5,826 plus on-tour air for 10 Days - Tauck Bridges

New for 2015 – go inside South Africa on a family adventure created by Tauck and BBC Earth! How would you and your family like to… stand eye-to-eye with an ostrich as you ask him for a ride, fist-to-talon with an eagle happy to perch on your arm, trunk-in-hand with an elephant as you go for a walk... take a drumming lesson, make tasty samosas and meet a cheetah ambassador during a three-night stay in Cape Town ... zip line through the treetops and go whale and seal watching on a private boat cruise during two nights at a Garden Route estate… take a bicycle tour of Soweto and visit a tribal school in the bush... mingle with monkeys during a walking tour with a private guide…go on safari game drives to spy the Big Five when you spend three nights in a wilderness lodge near Kruger National Park... and learn more about wildlife with cameramen's gadgets, like night vision goggles and infrared cameras, to see and hear things not normally experienced by family travelers to South Africa. You can do all this and more on this new Earth Journey that is limited to 34 guests!
