My husband and I recently went on the South Africa tour, and it exceeded our expectations. The safari at Kruger National Park was definitely a highlight, but we also enjoyed the scenic drive along the Panorama Route and the cultural experiences in Soweto and Johannesburg. The group size was small, which made for a more intimate experience. The tour was well-organized and ran smoothly. Highly recommend!
