Epic South Africa – 15 days of magic!

Experience all the magic of South Africa as you explore the legacy of Apartheid and Johannesburg today. Visit the famous apartheid museum and the oldest township in Africa, Soweto. Here you will visit the famous Vilakazi Street, home to two Nobel prizewinners – Nelson Mandela and of Desmond Tutu, as well as the Hector Pieterson museum where you will understand the iconic student struggles against apartheid. An expertly guided tour will guarantee an experience never to be forgotten. You will visit the bustling centre of the Muslim communities in Johannesburg as well as take in Jumuah salaah at one of the many Jumuah Masjids in the area. You will be treated to in depth information and experiences of the Muslims who lived through apartheid.
The wildlife adventure begins with a visit to the world famous Kruger National Park where you will experience an expertly guided safari and witness animals in their natural habitat – even a chance encounter with a pride lions or an endangered species perhaps! Soaking in Allah’s amazing beauty of creation, you will take in all the sights of the panorama surrounding the Kruger Park by visiting breathtaking waterfalls, forests and mountains.
After a night in the friendly city of Port Elizabeth, you begin your coastal adventure. You visit Storms River and the ancient indigenous Tsitsikamma Forest, a world of giant trees, forest ferns, clear streams and brightly coloured birds. Via a unique canopy tour, you will experience all the beauty and splendour that this forest has to offer. To ensure your adrenalin really gets worked up, we will visit the Bloukrans Bridge where you can enjoy the world’s highest commercial bungee jump at 216m! The tranquil town of Plettenberg Bay hosts you for a visit to the Birds of Eden Sanctuary before arriving at the jewel of the Garden Route, Knysna. Voted the most popular destination for locals and tourists, Knysna offers many activities and attractions of a wide variety including a ferry ride around the Knysna lagoon.
You would venture into South Africa’s oldest tourist attraction at the Cango Caves and discover history dating back thousands of years in this labyrinth of corridors and tunnels. Being in the ostrich capital of South Africa would necessitate an opportunity to learn about and interact with these big birds at the ostrich farm. A visit to the wildlife ranch will allow for close encounters with big cats and reptiles in a truly memorable experience before spending the night in the scenic town of George.
Arriving in Cape Town, you will visit places of sheer amazement and understand the traces of the first Muslims to have set foot on these shores. You will be walked through the richness of the local Cape Malay Muslim community in Bo Kaap and District Six and visit the first masjid built in South Africa over 200 years ago. A spectacular shoreline journey of the Cape Peninsula will take you to Cape point, the very tip of the continent of Africa as well as scenic towns of Hout Bay and Simonstown. Visit the penguin nature reserve and see these delightful creatures in their natural habitat. A tour of this majestic city is incomplete without scaling the heights of the iconic landmark, Table Mountain and spending relaxation time at the beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens.

An amazing and breathtaking tour – This is uniquely and truly South Africa!
