Our South Africa tours also include a number of safari experiences, where you will have the opportunity to spot the ‘Big Five’: lions, leopards, rhinoceros, elephants and Cape buffalo. Our Spectacular South Africa tour, stays at the Bayala Private Safari Lodge and Camp, situated in the heart of Zululand.

And if you’re not ready for the adventure to end, dependent on your choice of tour, you can extend your holiday with a three-night stay at the breath-taking Victoria Falls, a three-night extension in Chobe National Park, or even a six-night stay incorporating both Victoria Falls and Chobe – the perfect finale to your South African holiday.
