Welcome to your group booking page for Sensational South Africa!!

 
Welcome to the extraordinary world of South Africa, where every moment is infused with wonder and discovery. We are delighted to present to you a meticulously crafted adult group trip that promises to ignite your senses and leave an indelible mark on your soul.

Our journey commences in the breathtaking city of Cape Town, nestled between the majestic Table Mountain and the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. Prepare to be enchanted as you explore its vibrant streets, immersing yourself in the rich tapestry of cultures that make this city so unique. From the bustling markets to the mouthwatering culinary delights, Cape Town will awaken your senses and leave you yearning for more.

The allure of Shimansky Diamonds awaits you, where the artistry of master jewelers is revealed in each dazzling gem. Witness the meticulous craftsmanship behind these exquisite creations, and perhaps find a piece that will forever encapsulate the memories of this remarkable journey.

Next, we set sail to the iconic Robben Island, where history intertwines with the spirit of resilience. Step foot on the very soil that bore witness to the incarceration of Nelson Mandela, and gain a profound understanding of the struggle for freedom that shaped South Africa. This is a place of reflection and inspiration, where the echoes of the past invite us to forge a brighter future.

Prepare to embark on a mesmerizing game drive in Johannesburg, where the untamed wilderness beckons. Immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring beauty of nature as you encounter majestic creatures in their natural habitat. From the regal lions to the mighty elephants, this is an encounter that will leave you humbled and in awe of the raw power of the animal kingdom.

A full day in Soweto invites you to delve deep into the heart and soul of South Africa's vibrant culture. From the iconic Vilakazi Street, where Nelson Mandela once walked, to the pulsating rhythm of township life, you will be captivated by the spirit and resilience of its people. This is a day of connection, where you will forge lasting bonds and gain a profound appreciation for the triumph of the human spirit.

Our journey culminates with a visit to the Nelson Mandela Apartheid Museum, a sanctuary of remembrance and hope. Immerse yourself in the stories of struggle, triumph, and reconciliation as you navigate through the exhibits that chronicle the turbulent history of apartheid. This is a poignant tribute to one of the world's greatest leaders, a man whose unwavering belief in justice and equality changed the course of a nation.

This meticulously curated adult group trip to South Africa is an invitation to embrace the extraordinary. Let us take care of every detail, ensuring your journey is seamless and unforgettable.

SCHEDULED DEPARTURES & CANCELLATION OF A TOUR BY THE TOUR OPERATOR

We aim to operate all tours as advertised but as we plan the tours many months in advance, we may occasionally have to make changes or cancel your booking and we reserve the right to do so at any time.

Changes: If we make an insignificant change to your tour, we will make reasonable efforts to inform you or your travel agent as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure, but we will have no liability to you. Examples of insignificant changes include alteration of your flights by less than 12 hours, changes to aircraft type, change of accommodation to another of the same or higher standard, minor amendments to the daily itinerary, and changes of carriers.

Occasionally we may have to make a significant change to your confirmed arrangements. Examples of “significant changes” include the following, when made before departure:

A change of accommodation area for the whole or a significant part of your time away.

A change of accommodation to that of a lower standard or classification for the whole or a significant part of your time away.

A change of outward departure time or overall length of your arrangements by more than 12 hours.

A significant change to your tour itinerary, missing out one or more destinations entirely.

If a Tour is cancelled by the Tour Operator before the date of departure for reasons other than Force Majeure and the cancellation is not caused by your fault or negligence, you will have the choice of accepting from the Tour Operator:

(a) a substitute Tour of equivalent or superior value; or

(b) a substitute Tour of lesser value if no Tour of equivalent or superior value is reasonably available and to recover from the Tour Operator the difference in price between the price of the Tour originally purchased and the substitute Tour; or

(c) a full refund of all monies paid for the cancelled Tour.

The Tour Operator is not responsible for any incidental expenses or consequential losses that you incur as a result of the cancelled booking including visas, vaccinations, non-refundable flights or rail, non-refundable car parking or other fees, loss of earnings, or loss of enjoyment, the Tour Operator reserves the right to issue a full refund in lieu of the choices above, in its sole discretion. Where a significant element of a Tour as described cannot be provided after departure, the Tour Operator will make suitable alternative arrangements where possible. If it is not possible to provide a suitable alternative or if you reasonably reject any suitable alternatives, the Tour Operator may provide you with a refund for unused products or services as determined in its discretion.

You must have a passport that is valid 6 months after the last date of travel with the Tour Operator as set out on your itinerary. You accept full responsibility for obtaining all such documents, visas and permits prior to the start of the Tour, and you are solely responsible for the full amount of costs incurred as a result of missing or defective documentation. You agree that you are responsible for the full amount of any loss or expense incurred by the Tour Operator that is a direct result of your failure to secure or be in possession of proper travel documentation.
