A Globus tour of South Africa is fuelled by colourful cities, private game reserves, and wondrous wildlife. Enjoy open-air game drives near Kruger National Park and keep your camera at the ready for sightings of the “Big 5”, as well as cheetah, wildebeest, crocodile, hippo, and rhino. Dive into South Africa’s turbulent past with a visit to Soweto in Johannesburg and the former home of Nelson Mandela, and soak in glorious panoramas from Cape Town’s Table Mountain to the candy-coloured streets of its Bo-Kaap neighbourhood.
Embark aboard a custom safari vehicle in Makalali Private Game Reserve for an afternoon game drive with a skilled tracker and professional Ranger. Keep on the lookout for the "Big 5" – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo, followed by sundowner drinks.
Explore Soweto, the largest township in the country, with your Local Guide. Visit the Hector Pieterson Memorial and the former neighbourhoods of Nobel Peace Prize winners, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Nelson Mandela, featuring the Mandela House – former home of the legendary human rights leader.
Visit Boulders Beach in Cape Point Nature Reserve to see a colony of endangered African penguins, known for the unique sound they make. Colonies can be found from southern Namibia all the way around the South African coast, and Boulders Beach is the premiere viewing spot.
