Full-service camping trip with some stays in hotels/lodges. Travel is by minibus on mainly good roads with some long drives.
11 nights log cabins/chalets/hotel, 8 nights full-service camping.
19 breakfasts, 16 lunches and 14 dinners included.
Due to the nature of this trip there are some long driving days as we cover a lot of the country but there is lots to do and see along the way, plus we stop regularly for toilets, refreshments, photographs and leg stretches.
All camping on this trip is fully supported, so all cooking and other camp chores (including erecting and dismantling your tents) are done for you by your guide and assistant, allowing you to get the most out of your holiday!
This trip is classed as leisurely/moderate grade. It is designed for people in good health who enjoy the outdoors. It is a very varied trip, with sightseeing, city tours, beach activities and walking.
The moderate grading is given as some of the walks, especially in the Drakensberg, require a reasonable level of fitness.
Legal Note: all group members joining this tour will be asked to sign an indemnity form at the start of the holiday. This indemnity form is a requirement of the South African Tourism Service Association which our local supplier is a member of. As a client of Exodus Travels Ltd, your rights under the Package Travel Regulations (1992) are unaffected, and Exodus remains liable for the actions of our sub-contractors.

The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
In order to provide a more accurate grading system, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Leisurely/Moderate. Occasionally, there are optional activities available en route, in this case the optional grade is indicated in brackets, for example Grade Challenging (climb Tough+). Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide only. In all cases you should refer to the respective holiday's Trip Notes for further details.
