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

Just about everything you need to know is out on the web before you make a decision. I believe I called the Friendly Planet office only once with only one question during the entire booking process. I really appreciate all of the full disclosure of just about everything on the web site. It helped me make my decision to do the safari with Friendly Planet as opposed to Vantage or other companies.

Once again Friendly Planet delivered. Best of South Africa was truly a fantastic trip! This was our fourth trip with Friendly Planet and it will not be our last! The guides (especially in Karongwe Game Reserve) and hotels were great. Well done!!
