See one of the world’s truly magnificent countries.  The setting for much of this African trip is the stunning veldt where you will experience big game safaris and bush walks from our base at a private game reserve lodge.

We will visit “the Cradle of Humanity”, a UNESCO World Heritage site, with a renowned expert, Dr. David Evans of the ROM.  We will also visit the site of his remarkable find… a dinosaur nursery!

We will tour the award winning “wine district” for some fabulous food and drink and see penguins at the tip of the Cape of Good Hope. We will visit Robben Island, near Capetown, site of Nelson Mandela’s long captivity, visit the house he was arrested in, and learn about the apartheid era.


Highlights of the tour include:

  • Game drives to see the big 5: rhinoceros, elephant, lion, leopard and hippopotamus.
  • First class accommodation in a stunning private game reserve lodge.
  • World class wine and food in the heart of the 300 year old wine district.
