South Africa is a land of great contrasts, with beautiful forested areas, as well as deserts and spectacular mountain ranges. The world renowned Kruger National Park is just one of the many game reserves to choose from, but there are also many exquisite private lodges and parks, as well as smaller, bush lodges. From the Mother City of Cape Town spread beneath Table Mountain to the Garden Route with its oceans and forests to the magnificent mountainous Drakensberg area in Kwa Zulu Natal to the “old Africa” of the bushveld. This is one country where we find that people return again and again – there is always more to see and explore.

For a relaxed hassle free vacation with English, Dutch, German or French Guides you should consider one of Cape Diversity Tours’ small personal guided group overland tours. Leaving from Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth these guided tours include the Garden Route, Karoo and Wild Coast.
