Sativa & Safaris Tour South Africa

Sep 3, 2021 to Sep 14, 2021
South Africa
Witness history in the making as we visit South Africa on this one of a kind Cannabis and Culture tour.

Much like here at home the rules and laws surrounding cannabis use are often fast-changing... and South Africa is no different.
On September 18, 2018, South Africa’s Constitutional Court, the highest in the Republic, decriminalized cannabis use and possession in private spaces...it still has some ways to go but South Africa is poised to create the world’s most progressive cannabis regulatory system.

 Can you imagine tracking the Big 5 or sailing the Zambezi River infused?

Has trying some authentic South African "dagga" been on your to-do list? 
Well, your wait is over.

We also know that having the money and time to travel all the way to South Africa is a once in a lifetime experience for most.
And, you would not want to ruin that by having too much of a good time.

So we've cultivated this itinerary with the perfect balance of cannabis and culture throughout your tour. Deposits and convenient monthly payments are offered to help you join this once in a lifetime opportunity.
