Tailor-made South African Tours

We'll adjust any itinerary or create a custom tour from scratch to complement your unique individual needs.

Introduction

As each and every traveler is unique, so, too, are their travel requirements. There will never be an ideal duration, a specific combination of destinations or fixed price tag that suits every traveler or traveling party. Luckily, tailoring South African tours to complement your particular needs is something of a specialty for us.

To get you started, first consider your point of entry. The two major international airports in South Africa are OR Tambo International (Johannesburg) and Cape Town International. These are the two main airports where all our South African tour services are conducted from. Your African Sky guide will meet you in the arrivals hall and run through your itinerary with you to ensure that you are clear on all the details.

Keep in mind that flexibility is one of the hallmarks of a tour with African Sky. If you are already in South Africa, or are not traveling to one of the above-mentioned airports – i.e. perhaps Durban, George or Port Elizabeth – we will be happy to accommodate an alternative pick-up location. The only area that is really ‘out of bounds’ is the heart of the country – the Free State and the Great Karoo – which we do not include in our tours. This is largely due to the amount of driving involved. As your time here is limited and precious, it is imperative to focus that time on leisure and activities rather than on transport from one location to another.

The next step is to consider your interests. Are you after an unforgettable safari experience, but do not have a specific destination in mind? Would you like to explore Cape Town and the Garden Route, but are unsure of when to travel? Are you after cultural immersion, but aren’t sure where to travel to? While many of your queries may be answered through a glance at our website, we are always happy to provide additional information to ensure that your trip is as memorable as it can possibly be.

If you have very specific interests, like, for example, birding, photography, rock art, stargazing or culinary arts, we’ll ensure that you are paired with a guide that will enhance your tailor-made South African tour experience. Because South Africa is so remarkably diverse, it is impossible for us to plot every possible adventure on our website. Reach out to us with your ideas and wish list, and we will work to make it a reality for you.

Considerations

1

What are your interests?

Are you a history buff? Would you like to learn more about South Africa's unique cultures? Do the great outdoors call your name? Or would you like to experience a little bit of everything? Detail your interests, and we'll ensure that your tailor-made tour includes suitable activities, attractions and destinations.

2

What is your budget?

The budget available to you for your tailor-made tour can determine a range of key factors, from the duration of your travels to the level of the accommodations included. Being upfront about how much you wish to spend will greatly assist us in ensuring that we match you to an appropriate itinerary.

3

When would you like to travel?

South Africa generally has a rather temperate climate, without the temperature extremes experienced in the northern hemisphere. This means that any time is really a decent time to travel. However, for guests who would like to, for example, enjoy fruitful whale watching or see the wild flowers in bloom, timing is essential.
