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.
We got home safely and with no problems Friday morning. The trip was excellent! Thank you for all your help in making it a trip to remember. All of the places we stayed were great. The tours were very good, and we especially liked our last guide. We appreciate the stellar job working to get our shark trip in which was very important to us. Incidentally, the shark tour was challenging but most professionally done, as was the balloon trip. We got a lot from the mine tour and learned a bunch. We did buy a diamond for my wife's ring though we ended up getting from shop outside the mine. The diamonds in the mine store were beyond beautiful and very expensive. We got a very nice (and safe) diamond that we are most happy with for a price that was realistic. We are pleased. We can't say enough about Arathusa. The safari was beyond description good!
