11 days
Johannesburg, Kruger National Park area, Cape Town
No country has a more compelling combination of history, culture and wildlife than South Africa. In Johannesburg, the painful years under apartheid are gone but never forgotten. Game drives take you within shouting distance of elephants, lions, rhinos and more. And Cape Town is a favorite destination for many, thanks to its cosmopolitan atmosphere and stunning scenery.
