+ TOUR OVERVIEW

This 12-day Africa tour is a bucket-list trip designed for anyone and everyone of all ages. Starting off the tour in Johannesburg, you'll get acquainted with the city and climate before departing north to Kruger National Park for a 5-day guided and guarded safari trek. Complete with traditional meals, closed accommodations, and patrolled 24/7 you will witness the miracles and sheer beauty of African wildlife. During the trek, you may see a plethora of animals and will eventually descend into the Blyde River Canyon to witness the tribes and villages of the people who live there.

After your return to Jo'Burg, you will board an included regional flight from the Johannesburg airport to Cape Town for the adventure portion of this trip.

Cape Town is full of wonders....from Table Mountain, to Lion's Head, to the Stellenbosch Wine-making region and more, you'll bear witness to such things as Boulders Beach (where many penguins visit), hike Table Mountain (or Gondola up & down), vineyard tours in Stellenbosch, go on a shark cage diving tour - you can get in if you wish - and will head into the dunes of Cape Town for a morning full of UTV driving and sandboarding.

Last but not least, you'll fly out of Cape Town but not before an included dinner to reminisce in the awe and incredibly diverse beauty of South Africa.

Daily workouts, fitness and hiking is included in this trip! Get amped! This is the pinnacle of everything VoyEdge RX is truly about.
