3-Day Trans South Africa

Southern Sky Adventures: 3-Day Trans South Africa

DEPARTUREFor many visitors to South Africa, there’s no finer way to see the country than on the popular weekly journeys between Pretoria and Cape Town. One of the world’s top destinations, Cape Town offers a blend of cosmopolitan city life, mountain splendor and scenic winelands. The twin cities of Pretoria and Johannesburg in Gauteng form South Africa’s economic heartland and the ideal departure point for the Lowveld’s world-famous game reserves. From the coast, the 1000 mile route follows an old pioneering trail carved out of the African bushveld, passing through the winelands and climbing up to the interior through the Hex River Valley. Highlights of the north and southbound routes include visits to the historic village of Matjiesfontein, a 100-year-old refreshment stop in the arid Karoo, and Kimberley (city of De Beers), the diamond boom town that’s home to the Big Hole, the world’s largest man-made excavation.
