Whether you are travelling solo, with friends or family, our unique tours are designed for people who want to experience the best of independent and group travel combined. ​

 

Take advantage of group discounts and leave all the organising to us, while still having the ability to experience destinations independently. Forget the idea of being herded around following a flag with 50 others; our trips are for small, like-minded groups. Travel seamlessly like the locals on planes, trains and automobiles (and the occasional kayak!) ​

 

While we have included the 'must see and do' activities, there is plenty of free time to explore on your own. The bespoke nature of our tours allows us to help you create your perfect holiday. We book and host all of the tours, so you know you'll be looked after the whole way through. ​

 

Come and go as you please, spend time with new friends, but know there is always something happening and there will always be a place to meet in the evening to share a meal, a drink and a laugh as we make our way from Cape Town to Kruger!

Activities and Meals as per itinerary

Solo Sharing

Let us introduce you to our exclusive 'Solo Sharing' accommodation options. After spending over 15 years booking travel and sending people all over the world, it is very apparent that the majority of group tours are traditionally aimed at people travelling in Twin or Double Share Accommodation. There is always the option of a 'single supplement' however they are often an additional 50% of the tour cost. Of course you could travel independently, however if you're travelling solo or with just one other person, sometimes it's nice to meet new people.

Solo Sharing is a unique concept that allows friends and family to travel together, while having your own space. While we do have the usual Twin, Double & Single options, Solo Sharing gives you a mixture of either your own hotel room, or your own bedroom in a 2 Bedroom Apartment. This has allowed us to dramatically reduce the jump between sharing a room for the entirety of a tour, or having to pay a single supplement. We exclusively work with properties that offer apartment style accommodation or provide a discount for single occupancy rooms.
