15 Night Wild South Africa Conservation Tour

Experience Wild South Africa at its very best

Take a walk on the wild side on this 15 night educational South Africa tour.  You’ll be welcomed to the beautiful South African coast in Cape Town, a city nestled between the meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, under Table Mountain.

Your educational journey will take you through the bush of South Africa to the BEST nature conservatories the continent has to offer.  This tour is super unique because you will see over 700 species of animals, including the Big 5.  No it’s not Lions and Tigers and Bears, OH MY.  But it is Lions, Leopards, African Buffalo, Rhinos, and Elephants.  If marine life is more your style, don’t worry you’ll get a taste of that too!

Over your first week you will have an intro to Cape Town with a walking tour and a tour of the South African Museum.  This will allow you to get to know the city and your surroundings.  Later in the week you’ll visit Gansbaai Shark Conservation, where you’ll have the chance to get face-to-face with sharks in a cage dive.  The rest of the week includes trips to Cape Agulhas National Park, Cheetah-Land, the Cango Caves, and Outeniqua Nature Reserve.

Your second week starts off with a plunge, by taking a PADI dive course in Plettenberg Bay.  Then you’ll get catty with a trip to see the largest felines in the world at the Tenikwa Wildlife Center.  Not only will you see the big cats but the most majestic animal on the globe, the elephant at an amazing sanctuary.  You’ll then catch the waves in Jeffrey’s Bay with professional surfing lessons.

Lastly, prepare to be amazed at a top desired vacation in the world, a 4-Day Addo to Karoo Safari.  You’ll witness elephants in their natural habitats, as well as cheetah, lion, buffalo and many more.  Your safari concludes in the Valley of Desolation, which offers the most scenic views in all of South Africa.

Whether you want to “treat yo-self”, bring a friend, or come with the whole family you really can’t miss our 15 Night Wild South Africa Conservation Tour!
