Visit Amazing South Africa!
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. 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).
Our most popular South Africa tours all include Cape Town. 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.
What Our Clients Are Saying
"The best part of safari was just sitting and observing the animals. Hearing them chew,walk, etc. Loved it. Victoria Falls was superb and we like them best from Zambian side. It has certainly been a wonderful trip!"
"Every hotel /lodging you set up for us was superb and a place we would gladly rebook or advise any of our friends to book. Every driver was courteous and an excellent and safe driver—most notable in this was our Namibia guide who took us through some scary mountain roads and when questioned about his superb safe driving told us that he had actually taught for the army in difficult terrain driving!
Every guide was knowledgeable, courteous and unfailingly helpful including inventiveness about how to structure each tour so that I could participate to the maximum despite my disabilities. Every arrangement was reliable and was on time or early. The times we had to check on or change anything were reachable immediately through the phone numbers you gave us.
We couldn’t recommend you or any of the services you provided for us more highly. This was much appreciated because I was traveling with a significant handicap due to Parkinsons disease and didn’t want to be a burden or limit the opportunities of my able bodied sister."
"What an awesome trip. Definitely one of our best.
We were very lucky with the safari. Saw the big five pretty much every game drive. It was awesome, like the animals were waiting for us to come see them. Definitely have some great pictures from this.
The safari was also very relaxing and enjoyable. I do think that the safari can be a hit or miss depending on the weather and the animal sightings. Fortunately for us, we were VERY LUCKY.
Furthermore, as you are aware we had a slight hiccup with our flight but the airlines and yampu was very good in providing a peace of mind with the services/reassurance. Very happy that yampu was there to provide support. Thankfully the issue resolved in a timely matter.
Cape Town is by far our favorite city. What an incredible city with so so so many things to do. Although we spent a week in one city, we felt that we could have spent another week easily and still not be fully satisfied with what cape town had to offer.
Shark diving was amazing.
Mountain biking was just splendid. Can't say enough about how great the trip was."
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for an exquisite 23 day Africa experience. With a little bit of careful planning my sister and I did it ALL!!! From balloon flights over the Namibian Dunes to being 8 feet from 9 lions feeding on a buffalo they had just killed in Sabi Sands to city explorations of Pretoria, Capetown and Johannesburg, we saw it all. And due to your efforts there was never a missed connection or even a slightly late connection--everyone showed up on time or even early. We never had a moments worry. We ate all the exceptional food, drank ice in our drinks and had a wonderful gastronomic, even gourmet, time without any repercussions .
I never thought we could do this without a hitch but thanks to you we did. Everyone was very compassionate helpful resourceful and accommodating.
"Thank You so much for pulling it all together last minute! Cape Town was great! Our guide was really really really good. She was able to add a visit to a township for $10 and tried to help us book paragliding from Table Top Mountain for us but the weather didn’t cooperate. Also, I am specially glad that we ended up at the Thornybush Private Reserve in their Jackalberry Lodge, it was amazing!!!! 1000% recommended!
Thanks Again for planning our trip to South Africa, we were really pleased with your work! Look forward to hearing from you."
"Africa exceeded every expectation that we had. The weather was outstanding, the food was good. The guides (with the exception of Johannesburg) were great. I only wound up taking 687 pictures. I'm now trying to get these into my computer and into a file that I can send to my friends. They all want to see what we experienced. I have mentioned Yampu several times to friends, telling them how pleased we were with your services. We won't hesitate to recommend you and Yampu in the future. Thanks for playing such a great role in making this a most unforgettable vacation."
" I wanted to take the time to tell you that everything was wonderful. The entire trip was very well organized and everything from the hotels to the guides to the food was outstanding. To be honest, I was a little nervous about staying in Cape Town as I have heard it is not the safest place. My nerves were completely calmed when I saw how lovely our hotels were. Our drivers were always on time (usually early) and we never had to wait for our transportation. The things we saw were incredible. The buffets were delicious and plentiful; I will be sending you my weight watchers bill! Yampu tours did a fabulous job and I will be using them again in the future as well as recommending them to others. Thank you for all of your hard work in creating this custom trip for us. We have a lifetime of memories. "
