Experiences to be Savored when touring in South Africa

The wealth of unique experiences available in South Africa makes it difficult to select a standout few, but the adventures below are easily some of the most rewarding pursuits available in the world of travel today.

Cultural Immersion

South Africa is such a cultural melting pot, you will find numerous opportunities to learn more about and immerse yourself in the traditions of these colorful peoples, from visiting the local sangoma (witch doctor) in a Shangaan village to mesmerizing displays of the traditional dances and music of the proud Zulu nation at Shakaland.

Humbling History

With such a turbulent past, the markers of ruthless colonial enterprise and the divisions of apartheid linger across the country in various museums, monuments and the remnants of battlefields. There is much to learn, to explore, to remember and to feel when wandering down the haunted paths of South Africa's history.

Adventure Abounds

Adrenalin junkies will delight in the wealth of hair-raising activities available. From plunging into the icy waters of the Atlantic to meet the fearsome great white shark, to meandering into the depths of the earth at the Cango Caves, your South African tour need not be limited to the conditions of mankind. The opportunities for adventure abound.

The vast majority of our guests who enjoy privately guided South Africa tours depart feeling that they have made a lifelong friend. Your guide - along with their invaluable knowledge and years of experience - is at your personal disposal. You will have their undivided attention for any query, any recommendation or even any emergency, ensuring that you are always taken care of.

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 extremely 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 are in need of their assistance.
What is the best tour destination in South Africa?
Cape Town is the cream of the crop when it comes to South Africa's tour destinations. No other city or town in the country offers the same wealth of activities and attractions.
Are any tour activities scheduled?
Most of the activities we include can be enjoyed at any time of the day, but certain tours - like Robben Island, for example - have set times.
Can tour days be switched out?
Yes - particularly 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 simply have special interests like professional photography, birding or even history, we will match you with a guide that will 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 availability of guides, additional fees may apply if we have to outsource a translator.
I have already booked my own accommodation. Do you offer guided tours without accommodation included?
This depends largely on availability of guides. Guests booking full 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, keep in mind that a tip is not a right - if you find the service lacking somehow, be sure to communicate this to us.
