This, together with our wonderful climate and friendly people, make us an awesome tourist destination that is just waiting to be explored.
This package encompasses some of the best sights and highlights that South Africa has to offer and is guaranteed to provide the traveler with some truly great experiences and cherished moments. It basically consists of two halves encompassing two very different regions, namely the wildlife rich areas of Kruger in the north to the scenic splendor of the Cape Town area in the south, providing one with a great introduction and overview of this beautiful part of Africa.
