If you dream of visiting South Africa, taking in the ‘Mother City’ of Cape Town, the wine regions of Stellenbosch and Paarl, and a malaria free safari experience in the Eastern Cape, then one of the best ways to do so is with a luxury escorted tour.
Grand tours of South Africa are widely promoted, but it is impossible to see an entire country in 14 or 15 days, and while you may get to visit many places, you spend a great deal of time on the bus and rarely get the opportunity to unpack your suitcase.
A smaller group tour that concentrates on one specific area is generally more relaxed, more comfortable, you get to know the areas you visit rather than just ticking them off your “to see” list, and as you share your tour with like-minded travellers, it is quite likely that you will make new friends along the way.
The South African Experience is one such small group tour that combines luxurious hotels, first class ground transportation, and unique travel experiences that one simply would not find on an overcrowded large group tour.
A tour designed to please the most discerning traveller, it highlights areas of the Western Cape, the Garden Route and the Eastern Cape, taking in fine wineries, private nature reserves, and a whole range of great dining venues and attractions, and it does so at a leisurely pace – you are on holiday after all!
When you take a small group escorted tour of South Africa you do not have to worry about driving anywhere, your hotels are all pre-arranged so there are no lengthy check-in procedures, and should the unexpected happen, there is always someone available to solve the problem while you continue to enjoy your holiday.
A carefree trip, the South African Experience is ideal for those who want the convenience of an escorted tour, combined with an uncomplicated schedule, the freedom to opt out of any activities, and the personal touch that can turn a holiday into one of life’s most treasured memories.
