A wonderful overview of a country so diversified that it is dubbed the Rainbow Nation! First on the three-part itinerary is the oft visited cultural hub of Cape Town, as well as the winelands, with stops in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Next is Johannesburg, the country’s largest city, and Soweto, hotbed of anti-apartheid activity, followed by a tour through the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve and Kruger National Park, where two photo safaris will take you among giraffes, elephants and lions! Lastly, you ride to neighbouring Swaziland — rural land of grass huts, dances, festivals and handicrafts —, before returning to Johannesburg. Definitely three very colourful weeks!
