South Africa

Freed of its turbulent history, South Africa today boasts world-class adventure; and traveling to South Africa has never been easier. Surf on warm Indian Ocean breakers. Swim with sharks, launch an Antarctic adventure, or dance the night away in Cape Town. Sip refreshing chardonnays from a Western Cape winery. Hike the Drakensberg mountains and peer through "God's Window" down the Blyde River Canyon.

Rave Reviews

We've taken 3 trips with Friendly Planet. All of them have been good, but this one topped them all. We loved the itinerary. We came home feeling we had seen so much! We loved the hotels. The River Lodge in Karongwe was amazing. Our game guides Keenan and Matthews were the best! The African Pride Hotel in Cape Town was beautiful. Our room looked out on Table Mountain! And most of all, our guides did everything they could to ensure that we had the very best time possible. We will definitely look to Friendly Planet again for our next trip!

The Taste of South Africa was wonderful and picture perfect. This is the second time we have toured with Friendly Planet and I have to say, your tours are so well thought out. The excellent guides have always imparted their love of their homeland with the touring.
