This 17 day customisable tour will show you all the of the highlights and hidden gems of Western South Africa. Begin in Cape Town where you will have the chance to ascend Table Mountain, sample delicious street food and visit the wineries of the Cape of Good Hope. From there, travel to Clan William to admire ancient rock paintings and rolling citrus farms. Springbok is your next stop where you will enjoy the beauty of the Namaqualand flowers (seasonal from late July to mid-September). The days following will find you doing a 4x4 guided 'desert mountain tour' in the Richtersveld, before travelling on to Augrabies Falls National Park. Here you will find a paradise for wilderness lovers - tumbling waterfalls, sprawling desert mountains and endless walking trails. Finally, you will drive to Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park for game drives and safari experiences among the incredible red rock landscapes of the Kalahari Desert, which is teeming with predators, most notably the famous Black-maned lions.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
