South Africa Tours & Budget Overland Safaris

Take one of our South Africa Tours  to see Southern Africa’s most diverse countries. Located at the southern tip of Africa, it is neighboured by Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Lesotho and Swaziland. South Africa is made up of 9 provinces with a population of nearly 84 million people of varying cultures and religions. It holds true to its unofficial name ‘Rainbow Nation’. With 11 official languages and 3 capital cities (Cape Town, Pretoria and Bloemfontein) it is unlike any other country in the world.

Why go on our Budget South Africa Tours?

Mother Nature truly blessed South Africa when it comes to sheer, untamed beauty. Rugged mountains, torrenting waterfalls, arid and vast deserts, shimmering lakes, marsh-like jungles, huge wetlands and never-ending coastlines – you are truly spoilt for choice when it comes to visiting this country.

Cape Town is located in the Western Cape bordered by both the Indian and Atlantic oceans. A visit to this premier holiday destination offers magnificent views of Table Mountain, to lazy days exploring the Cape winelands and afternoons soaking up the sun on the beautiful beaches. Enjoy an evening out on the town, a spot of shopping or dinner at restaurants specialising in both local and international cuisine.

Johannesburg is also known as the ‘City of Gold’ or ‘Joburg’ and is the largest city in South Africa, located in Gauteng it is South Africa’s smallest province. It is the commercial and industrial heart of South Africa and, home to the Apartheid museum containing an important part of South African History.

The Kruger National Park is the most famous National Park and largest in South Africa covering an area of 20 000 square kilometres, it is home to the ‘Big 5’ and a variety of wildlife including zebra, antelope, giraffe, hippopotamus and crocodile. The ultimate destination to kick back and soak up the wilderness on an South African wildlife safari.

The Garden Route is the most scenic route along South Africa’s coastline with quiet beaches, magnificent forests and wildlife. Popular South Africa tour highlights include Addo Elephant National Park, Tsitsikamma National Park, Route 62 and the Cango Caves of Oudtshoorn. In addition to our South Africa Overland Tours, we offer a variety of budget safari tour packages in South Africa.

When is the Best time to go on a South Africa Tour?

If you love sun, surf and hiking up our glorious mountains then our Summer months in the Western Cape are the best time to visit with temperatures in the 25 to 30 degrees range. These are from December to March. A heavy rainfall and average temperatures of 14 to 16 degrees can be expected from June to August. The Kruger Park area experiences heavy Summer showers from December to March. Their Winter dry period is from May to October where the animals tend to congregate around the waterholes which makes for beautiful wildlife viewing as they drink and splash around in the water. The KwaZulu-Natal coast offers year-round sunshine, and a very mild winter with warm ocean temperatures so if you can’t pick and choose your time, anytime is a good time!
