Zuid-Afrika is een land van kleuren, culturen en tradities. Een land met berggebieden, groene valleien, allerlei wilde dieren in de nationale parken en mooie stranden. Maak een safari in het Krugerpark, trek door de indrukwekkende Drakensbergen, overnacht op verschillende plekken langs de bekende Tuinroute en ontdek het kosmopolitische Kaapstad. We maken regelmatig korte wandelingen en gaan olifanten spotten in Addo Elephant Park. Het (voornamelijk) kamperen geeft deze reis een licht avontuurlijk karakter, waarbij je natuurlijk altijd kunt terugvallen op de expertise van twee gidsen.
