The South Africa Experience introduces you to the endless jewels of the mysterious continent’s wildlife. You wouldn’t want to miss the seven-night voyage with a group of adventures. We’ll experience one of the world’s most famous safari parks, tour Cape town as a local, and indulge in South Africa’s tastiest food, and so much more. If that’s not fulfilling enough, your cup will definitely run as we unwind for the entire day at Cape Town’s most prestigious spa. Join us in South Africa and get an extraordinary experience!

Travel Insurance

Should your trip be canceled or interrupted for a covered reason, a travel insurance policy will reimburse you for the eligible pre-paid and non-refundable portions of your trip.

We hope that all of our guests can accompany us on this experience. Unfortunately, circumstances can arise that could cause you to cancel or interrupt your trip. We understand how disappointing it is to be forced to cancel your trip prior to departing. To avoid financial and emotional anxiety, we require guests to purchase travel insurance. We’ve partnered with World Nomad to make it easier for you to obtain. Get a FREE quote here.

Trip Payment & Payment Plans
