South Africa




South Africa is one of our all-time destinations, and for good reason. It's home to world-famous wildlife viewing in Kruger National Park and bustling culture in Cape Town. When you combine the two, you get a truly out-of-this-world African experience.


Home to some of our most stunning base camps, South Africa is a special destination for us at Outside GO. Our president Sandy Cunningham grew up there, and anyone lucky enough to chat with her on the phone will pick up on her wonderful South African accent immediately! But even if we didn't have a past on the southernmost point of Africa, it would remain a favorite bucket list destination for our travelers of all types. Families rave about their experiences on safari, couples can't wait to honeymoon in the romantic treehouses of Lion Sands, and friends take on the winelands outside of Cape Town. Our favorite way to see the country? Taking the time to do it all.


Every trip we plan is fully customizable, but we have three stunning South African safaris that are not to be missed. Take 11 days to immerse yourself in our Ultimate Family Safari, Honeymoon Safari, or Horns of Africa trip. Each focuses on a unique aspect of the country, whether it's spotting rhinos on a walking safari or seeing the sights on Kloof Street in the beating heart of Cape Town.


"South Africa never leaves one indifferent. Its history, its population, its landscapes and cultures - all speak to the visitor, to the student, to the friend of Africa.”
