Small group vacations in South Africa

Small group vacations in South Africa can be a great way to keep costs down, for solo travelers to make friends, or simply to get well off the beaten track in the company of an experienced guide and driver without having to worry about getting lost or having enough supplies. Some itineraries focus on activities such as cycling, walking or food and wine while others take in more traditional safaris or follow the gorgeous Garden Route.
