SOUTH AFRICA

“I traveled through most of South Africa to find out how you can experience the off-the-beaten-track experience in this modern Africa! South Africa is new territory; well organized, perfect roads, beautiful accommodations and above all: stacks of pensionados. Not really a place for an off the beaten experience. Or is it? ”

– Charlie

ABOUT ZUID-AFRIKA

South Africa is considered by many people as the ultimate holiday destination in Sub-Saharan Africa, and for good reasons! With the perfect mix between African adventure and strong European (Dutch!) Influences, this is the Africa entry model.

This gigantic country has a diverse arsenal of landscapes, views, activities, and impressive history. And with a coastline of over 2800 kilometers, you will find plenty of hidden beaches. In addition, South Africa is the second-largest wine importing country in the world after France. Do I need to say more? The cherry on top of any South African adventure is of course the mother city Cape Town or cultural Johannesburg!

We have discovered the hidden gems for you and would love to show you these. Questions? Our South Africa specialists are happy to help you: request a free quote or start a chat!

UNIQUE EXPERIENCES

DRAKENSBERG

De bergketen reikt over een lengte van 1000 kilometer en is zelfs vanuit het Kruger park te zien. Het is een walhalla voor fanatieke hikers! Dit prachtige gebied staat bekend om haar grandioze bergketens en eindeloze uitzichten over de vallei.

OVERNIGHT POTHOLE HIKE

In Malalotja Nature Reserve, you will drive in a 4 × 4 to the starting point. From there, it is a few hours hike to the potholes where you can chill, swim, and slide. Then get ready for a wilderness campsite in the middle of nowhere and spend the night at a campfire under the stars.    

LOCAL LIVING IN SODWANA BAY

Sodwana Bay is a bay in South Africa on the north coast of KwaZulu Natal, between St. Lucia and Lake Sibaya. It is a popular diving destination and lies in the middle of South Africa's oldest Maputaland Marine Protected Area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But apart from the wonderful beach vibes, this place is also known for its rich Zulu Culture which we would like to show you.  

KOSI BAY

Kosi Bay, ook wel birder’s paradise! Kosi Bay is een reservaat van 11.000 hectare waar 6 verschillende meren samenkomen in de uiterste noordoosthoek van de provincie Kwa-Zulu Natal in Zuid-Afrika. Daarnaast is het een van de best behouden estuaria aan de Indische kustlijn! Het is een prachtig gebied met weelderige natuur vol dieren en vogels.

CHASING STARS – CEDERBERG WILDERNESS AREA

Cederberg is affectionately called ‘South Africa’s best-kept secret’ by locals. Balance over the mountain passes, climb the rock lands, swim in the clear mountain pools or enjoy the varied wildlife. Sleep among the rock formations under the stars and enjoy the solitary silence of the landscape. Wow!  

KRUGER SLEEP OUT

Put on your hiking boots, grab your binoculars and think of your best campfire story. It's time for an adventure in the bush in Guernsey Private Nature Reserve near Greater Kruger. Dinner is prepared and the tent pitched, you'll be camping with a guide in a safari park.
