South African Highlights, Wildlife and Sample Itineraries

Cape Town Aerial View

Cape Town

The second largest city in South Africa is home to an invigorating mix of cultures which make for colorful visits any time of year. Cape Town is also located near many of the country's premier wineries, offering marvelous mountain vistas and impressive 17th century Dutch architecture. Swimming, surfing, and snorkeling are all popular activities in the area, as are tours of the city and harbor which afford stunning views of the South African coastline.

Kruger National Park

At 7,580 square miles, Kruger National Park is the one of the largest game reserves in Africa. Kruger is home to more species of large mammals than any other African game reserve, so it's hard to find a better place on Earth to see the Big Five roaming the bush. Walking safaris and game drives round out the park's offerings to make a visit to Kruger a must on any South African adventure.
Clifton Coast

Garden Route

The Garden Route runs over 500 miles along some of the most scenic coastline in the world between Cape Town and the Eastern Cape beaches of Port Elizabeth. Top-notch whale watching, hiking, surfing, and cave exploring are all on the menu here. Find yourself constantly surrounded with the natural wonders of South Africa including mountains, lakes, rivers, valleys and forests brimming with ecological diversity.

What Our Clients Are Saying!

Custom trip to South Africa, World Cup, Safari

Global Basecamps arranged our trip to South Africa during the World Cup and did a fabulous job. Our travel agent arranged all the hotels (in many cases at prices that were lower than what he had originially estimated them at), car rentals and many of the tours that we took. He patiently worked through all the details with us, went back and forth many times on specific pieces, and best of all followed up with us a couple of weeks before the trip to see if we needed anything else and actually ended up taking care of some last minute arrangements for us. Thank you Global Basecamps for impeccable service and arrangements!

Custom South African Safari

This was my third time using the incredible services and unique properties of Global Basecamps. For my most recent trip to South Africa, I wanted a unique Kruger safari experience, but didn't have the budget for the higher-end Kruger safaris. Our travel specialist booked us a walking safari that was so incredibly priced we were able to afford an additional excursion to one of South Africa's smaller game parks. The walking safari was top notch and the accommodations were awesome. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and passionate about the wildlife. Viewing game on foot without twenty other vehicles with tons of gawking tourists and cameras going off is such a special treat. Thank you Global Basecamps for another incredible experience!
