SOUTH AFRICA | Dec 27, 2021 - Jan 6, 2022 | From Atlanta

The beauty of South Africa is breathed through the smiles of friendly faces, the mosaic of cultures and cuisines, and the complex history that has shaped it. But, most of all, it is the natural splendor of this country that sets it apart.

 

South Africa's landscapes are made up of valleys, mountains, forests, deserts, coastlines, and grassy savannahs that are breathtaking in their picturesque scale.

Some of the planet's most exciting wildlife species can be found here, so it is not surprising that South Africa is home to a collection of the most abundant and diverse game reserves on earth.

This country truly is a masterpiece; the perfect portrayal of the magic that is the continent of Africa...

Land in Johannesburg and admire its mixture of both historic and ultra-modern architecture. Get to know the wild side of South Africa as you embark on a game drive/safari in the Pilanesberg National Park. 

 

Fall in love with Cape Town, explore Mandela's Robben Island and discover the beauty of the Cape Peninsula on an unforgettable journey through the most iconic destinations of this diverse nation.

Celebrate the New Year!
