South Africa holidays

Tailor-made South Africa tours created for you by local experts

Our local partner based in South Africa

"We know South Africa like nobody else and can arrange any number of trips, from safaris in famous national parks like Kruger, but also holidays to the winelands, along the Garden Route and up the west coast."

Our local partner in South Africa was founded in 2009 to offer people a more in-depth, less rushed, eco-friendly safari holiday. For years the founders were privately guiding clients around, exploring all the known (and lesser known!) corners of this beautiful country. Now they have a fantastic team of 11 local specialists working with them, who man the office and are always happy to help you plan your ideal South Africa holiday. Their repertoire includes the very best of safari, as well as perfectly arranged self-drive holidays, not only in the national parks like Kruger, but through the winelands, along the Garden Route, and also up the west coast to the Kalahari and Kgalagadi. Since the very beginning, their clients’ personal wishes have been at the heart of what they do and we see their personal touch as one of their main strengths. They listen carefully to your needs and work hand-in-hand with you to create your dream holiday to South Africa, perfectly tailored to you and your budget. On arrival for a self-drive tour, they give you a mobile with a South African sim (you can call their team at any time of day or night), a GPS and a hard copy of your holiday itinerary, so that you can travel with complete peace of mind. Like all companies on TravelLocal, our partner in South Africa is locally-owned. All trips booked on the TravelLocal platform are 100% financially protected by ABTA, the UK's largest travel association, and all payments are handled in the UK. TravelLocal carefully selects each local travel company we work with so our clients can book safe in the knowledge that they are doing so with experienced, trusted and passionate experts in their destination.
