South Africa

Sample Itineraries

Cape Town

Cape Town

A city filled with history and heritage, Cape Town today is a modern and vibrant getaway that should certainly be on your Africa bucket list. This city has everything you could ever want. From various mountains to climb to incredible beaches, gastronomic restaurants with world class wine lists and an abundance of local artisans. There really is nothing more you could want from a city which is perhaps why it is one of the most sought after cities on earth to travel to.

Cape Winelands

Cape Winelands

Located just under one hour’s drive from Cape Town is the countryside you never knew you needed; the Cape Winelands. This collection of small towns and villages feels like stepping back to simpler times, waking to the sounds of birds in the trees and catching each sunset with a glass of bubbles in hand. There are endless vineyards and farms to explore with some of the most celebrated gastronomic restaurants in the country.

Sabi Sands

Sabi Sands

As one of the biggest wildlife reserves on the entire continent of Africa, Sabi Sands has a well-earned reputation for being one of the best destinations for a safari. If this is your first trip to Africa or fifth, you will have endless lodges and camps to choose from. There is a high density of animals and importantly for many, there is a high chance of viewing the Big 5. And with hundreds of other animals calling it home, you better pack your camera!

Testimonials

  • “An adventure of a lifetime! Our family of eleven, spanning three generations, experienced an incredible visit to the South African continent. From Johannesburg to Capetown to Victoria Falls and a fabulous safari with a range of activities, lodging, culinary delights and most importantly the sites themselves, all expertly arranged by Ubuntu, provided us with breathtaking, thrilling and treasured memories of the holiday season”.

  • "Selecting a competent travel service is essential if one is planning a safari in Africa. It’s also preferable if that travel agency is located and is owned by residential South Africans. The third essential factor would include agents, who themselves, both love to travel and are expert at experiences available at safari locations. The owners of Ubuntu Travel Group are just such wonderful people. We used their services to plan and experience a 12 day trip to the Kruger National Park area in South Africa visiting three different camp locations. The trip exceeded our expectations and we are already planning a similar trip with them next year. "

  • "Craig and I had the adventure of a lifetime with Ubuntu Travel Group. South Africa was like no other place we have ever been. The trip was so well planned. Kyle and Leah made it so easy for us. Between the big cities of Johannesburg and Cape Town and the two game reserves, (Phinda and Singita) we felt like we got a really well rounded view of the country. The opportunity to see so many amazing animals up close was simple magical. We have 3500 photos to prove it. Our group of 13 was the perfect amount to travel together. We went on the trip with a few friends and came home with a few new ones. The food and the accommodations everywhere we went could not have been better. Thank you Kyle and Leah for showing us the magic of So Africa. We would gladly recommend this adventure to anyone, actually we already have several times."
