South Africa Itineraries

With the world's longest wine route, South Africa can be enjoyed as both a region of tasty tipples, as well as being a wildlife and nature lovers dream. There are eleven official languages spoken in the country, laying claim to the vast history and culture that so aptly sums up the diverse story of this intriguing land.

The itineraries below are designed to give you a taste of what is possible, but are by no means set in stone. All holidays created by Original Travel are completely bespoke, designed by our team of specialists who use their personal travel experience to create the perfect tailor-made itinerary for you.

We very much believe that 'life is in the detail', and so whether you are looking to climb up Table Mountain to discover its 1,500 plant species (which is more than in all the UK), or sit back with a crisp Chardonnay under the mountainous Cape Winelands backdrop, then speak to our specialists to create your bespoke itinerary.
