Last week we spoke about Tanzania – this week we are looking at South Africa – but a tour with a difference.
This special group departure we have is for ladies only – solo or travelling with a friend.
The demand for women solo travel trips is very high – not sure where all the guys are – but if you are keen to experience South Africa with a group of like-minded women then this is the tour for you.
One Date Only – April 13, 2024
You Take in the Best
Start off in Cape Town – which I think is one of the most beautiful cities. Spend 3 nights there. Explore Kirstenbosch Gardens which are absolutely gorgeous, and then head down to Boulders Beach to meet the local penguins. The next day is free to do your own thing or take in one of the optional tours such as –
Then fly off to Johannesburg and stay for a night giving you the opportunity to explore Soweto where the anti-apartheid movement was launched by Nelson Mandela. That evening enjoy a traditional South African braai (barbecue).
Drive through incredible scenery to Kruger National Park and spend two nights there and take an open vehicle 4x4 game drive – see if you can spot the Big Five.
Then another 2 nights at a private game reserve – Karongwe. More game drives – more adventure.
Then back to Johannesburg for one night before you fly out to Victoria Falls.
Spend 2 fantastic nights there including unique experiences such as being hosted for a meal by one of the local rural residents. Here is the description:
Visit Flatter’s homestead in her rural village; meet her and some of her family, and walk with some of them throughout the property, among the fruit and vegetable plants the family grows for consumption. (They even plant hot chillies among the vegetables to discourage nosy elephants.) Then help the family prepare a traditional Zimbabwean dinner, which we'll all eat together outside on the property, weather permitting. Ingredients for the meal will have been hand-selected earlier in the day, at the bustling and friendly local village market.
