South Africa Tours
South Africa occupies almost half a million square miles of the southernmost tip of the African continent. Ranging from desert country in the north, to the towering Drakensberg Mountains in the east and the verdant wine country in the south, South Africa’s landscape offers visitors a variety of activities. South Africa is culturally rich, to say the least, with many indigenous tribes (there are 11 official languages) and a heavy European influence stemming from the longtime settlement of the Dutch East India Company in the 1600s and colonization by the British in the 1800s. You can explore the seaside city of Cape Town surrounding the iconic Table Mountain, take in the stunning vistas of vineyards and Cape Dutch architecture, get up close and personal with penguins and whales, or go on a safari and search out the Big Five animals (lions, leopards, elephants, buffalos and rhinoceros).
Yampu’s South Africa Highlights all include Cape Town. You can choose different combinations of tours featuring wineries, whale watching, the Garden Route or the Drakensberg Mountains. Several tours conclude with a full multi-day safari experience. You may also opt to take a wide variety of side trips to fit your specific interests. Most Yampu tours do not have set dates of departure and are subject to availability, which gives you the flexibility to choose your own dates of travel.
Everything was perfect! Guides were wonderful! I especially loved the Chitwa Chitwa. The experiences here were fabulous, including eating dinner with a family of elephants, including a baby. From our room and the lodge we saw a herd of Hippos, crocodiles in the morning and two lions. On the drive we saw an Impala in a tree which had been killed by a lion. Then shortly thereafter we saw a leopard leap up into the tree to eat the impala. We also went to an art opening, and liked a painting so much that we decided to buy it and take it home. It was her first painting to sell and she was so happy she gave it to me. I hope in some way my trip to South Africa, may have changed this student’s life, who will now have more confidence as an artist.
