South Africa is one of the world’s most exciting touring destinations, with dramatic Atlantic and Indian Ocean coastline, vibrant and colourful cities, a multi-ethnic society, diverse landscapes and an abundance of wildlife. Add in a reliably sunny climate and no jet lag, and it’s easy to see why South Africa is a dream holiday destination.
To get the most out of the country’s many and varied attractions, we’ve put together the ultimate tour – The Very Best of South Africa. Over 25 unforgettable days, we will explore lively cities, head out on safari in search of the ‘big five’, travel through stunning scenery and take one of the world’s most luxurious train journeys.
As always with Distant Journeys, the itinerary includes all the must-see attractions plus several once in a lifetime experiences, all conducted at a leisurely pace. In a tour full of highlights, the stand-out experiences include two nights on safari in the world-famous Kruger National Park, and a wonderful two-night journey on board the legendary Blue Train.
With Victoria Falls just a short flight from Johannesburg by air, and Chobe National Park a relatively short drive from Victoria Falls, extending your South African adventure to include one, or both of these incredible experiences is easier than you think. Choose from our three-night Victoria Falls holiday extension, or our six-night Victoria Falls & Chobe National Park extension.
