Cultural Immersion

South Africa is such a cultural melting pot.

Humbling History

South Africa has a very turbulent past.

FAQ

What vehicles are used during South Africa tours?
Comfortable air-conditioned vehicles are used on all tours. The vehicle type and size will vary depending on the size of your traveling party.
Will our guide be dining with us?
Generally, no - most guests enjoy their private time for meals. However, our guides are of such a caliber that they often become more like highly knowledgeable friends, and you are naturally welcome to invite your guide to share a meal with you if you so wish.
Will our guide be staying somewhere nearby?
Your guide will never be far from your accommodations, ensuring that they are within easy reach should you require a transfer for dinner or in case of an emergency and you need their assistance.
What is the best tour destination in South Africa?
Cape Town is the cream of South Africa's tourist destinations. No other city or town in the country offers the same wealth of activities and attractions.
Are any tour activities scheduled?
Clients can enjoy most activities at any time of the day. But specific tours - like Robben Island, for example - have set times.
Can tour days be switched out?
Yes - mainly when bad weather imposes on your activities. Should that be the case? Your day's itinerary may be switched out with one that is less weather-dependent.
What if I have a special interest, like bird watching or rock art?
Should you opt for one of our special interest tours or special interests like professional photography, birding, or even history, we will match you with a guide to enhance your experience..
Do you have guides that speak foreign languages?
We would never dream of limiting our services to English-speaking visitors only. Depending on the prevalence of the language and the availability of guides, additional fees may apply if we have to outsource a translator.
I have already booked my accommodation. Do you offer guided tours without accommodation included?
This depends mainly on the availability of guides. Guests booking complete private tour packages with African Sky will naturally take preference.
What about tipping?
Tipping is absolutely at your discretion. What may seem a negligible sum for you might be a fortune for another traveler, or vice versa, so tip according to your budget. Additionally, remember that a tip is not a right - if you find the service lacking, be sure to communicate this to us.
