Excursions and activities

If you have booked your trip through us, we will take care of the bookings of excursions, restaurants and golf courses requested at least one month before your departure. The recognized parts can then be processed in the travel documents. However, the best is right after you have booked your trip to prepare and to avoid disappointment at a later stage.

If you have not booked your trip with us, we cannot book the above matters free of charge and we will then have to charge administration costs. The amount depends on the booking components. It is (usually) no longer possible to book excursions within 1 month before departure. 

The tours listed on our website, travel components and excursions are selected based on our knowledge and experience as South Africa Specialist. We assess suppliers on reliability and quality. For our published tours and custom tours, we use special (lower) prices than if you book directly with the travel components at the suppliers or accommodations.

Do you want to book multiple day trips? Look under "building blocks" in the menu bar links on our website. Here you will find travel components from 2 - 6 days. For the booking of separate building blocks no booking fees are applicable.

It is not only known because of the imprisonment of Nelson Mandela, but also because of the special flora and fauna, so the island is worth a visit. On this tour you will be brought to Robben Island by boat, take a guided bus tour of the island and led around in prison by an ex-convict. If the sea is too rough for the boat trip, or if there are unexpected technical issues, the boat will not go out. We will keep you informed of this information. In this case there is a refund.
