South Africa

Breathtaking scenery & fascinating history

South Africa

A country of breathtaking scenery and fascinating history, which has emerged from the oppressive politics of the past, South Africa’s cosmopolitan cities and first-world infrastructure have made the country a top choice for travelers to Africa

From the private game reserves to the iconic view of Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa offers opportunities to enjoy diverse of landscapes and experiences. South Africa’s safari industry is a lot more commercialized and not as “wild” as other parts of Africa, but it is priced well and there are a handful of destinations off-the-beaten-track.

Cape Town and the surrounding Winelands offer world-class dining, a buzzing café and bar scene, making the region an epicurean’s dream. Cape Town can actually be combined quite easily with some more unique safari destinations and there are now flights from Kenya, Zambia and Botswana.

In short, we recommend Cape Town as a great add-on to your safari, but believe that the “real Africa” is found outside of South Africa in terms of an authentic safari experience.

Client Reviews
  • "We have always planned our own vacations, but could not have planned a more perfect safari than we got to experience. Now, we are completely hooked and are huge fans of Troy, Clare, and the entire TrueAfrica team!"

    Aly & TJ travelled in August 2016
  • "TrueAfrica hand picks their camps, partners and people and it really shows. From the useful and informative emails and contact pre-trip to the warm welcomes to the reluctant farewells on the ground, I don't know what impressed me more."

    Riki & Guillermo travelled in June 2016
  • "TrueAfrica really knows how to treat their customers and match them to the areas in Tanzania. I have traveled with them now 3 times and have never been disappointed!"

    Kathy & Mike travelled in February 2016
  • "TrueAfrica has the ability to match client to an experience or accommodation that will suite their style for a safari. Having travelled extensively in southern Africa and worked in the safari business, one is sometimes nervous of ones expectations not being met. TrueAfrica certainly did that and more."

    Charlie & his family travelled in February 2016
  • "Booking with TrueAfrica could not have been a better experience. Troy built us a custom itinerary for 2 weeks in Tanzania including everything we were interested in doing, and within our price range! This trip was truly one of the best we have taken."

    Erin & John travelled in November 2015
  • "This was our first trip to Africa and our 33rd wedding anniversary. We specifically wanted to see the Migration. We were a little nervous about being so far from home and dealing with a travel company that did not have a US office, but TrueAfrica was spectacular! An amazing trip we will always remember!"

    Barbara & John travelled in September 2015
  • "I had gathered numerous quotes from different travel agents as well as directly from lodges/camps and done a lot of my own research on what we wanted to do and where. True Africa provided the most competitive prices but I was most impressed with the knowledge and the honest and suitable advice/recommendations provided to improve our planned itinerary."

    Hannah & Kade travelled in September 2014
  • "My husband and I chose Africa for our honeymoon. Coming from Australia, we needed a travel agent that knew Africa well but also understood the kind of people we were, and what kind of a holiday we wanted. We found TrueAfrica online and from the moment we made contact with them they were fantastic! We felt like they were a bit of secret still yet to be discovered by the majority of tourists, and without TrueAfrica we would not have found them."

    Bridget & Stuart travelled in November 2012
