The South Africa Safari Tour Offers Whale Watching, Wine Tasting, And Much More

The South Africa Safari Tour with The Complete Traveler is your private invitation to the habitats of some of the world’s most intriguing residents – The Big Five – lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards and buffalo. Along with the Big Five, the private reserve is teeming with wildlife, flora and prolific bird life. It is situated on 21,000 acres of land and still considered one of the best sanctuaries to spot Africa’s most elusive large cat, the leopard. Now is a great time to reserve your spot for our trip to South Africa September 27 through October 10, 2019.

One of the highlights of the South Africa Safari tour is the open vehicle game drives. There are more than 365 different bird species to look for while observing the Big Five in their natural habitat. The tour features qualified game rangers and Shangaan trackers. From childhood, the trackers have been schooled on the value of bushveld plants; which of them have medicinal value, which of them are a good source of food, and which have spiritual powers in Shangaan mythology.

The Complete Traveler offers South Africa Safari Tours. Whale Watching, and Wine Tasting,

The trackers are also happy to pass on the descriptive Shangaan names of the indigenous animals and birds of the area, and the local beliefs of magical powers, omens or suspicions surrounding the bushveld creatures.

Enjoy the Sundowner (happy hour) while the sun sets over the Drakensberg Mountains, the main mountain ranger of Southern Africa. The Drakensberg rises more than 11,400 feet and extends roughly northeast to southwest for 700 miles parallel to the southeastern coast of South Africa.

After the excitement of seeing the Big Five and more, the group will travel to Boschendal in Franschhoek for a relaxing wine tasting.  Boschendal is a picturesque 300-year-old farm known for its award-winning wine and farm-to-table cuisine.

The South Africa Safari tour continues to Cape Town, with a stop for whale watching in Hermanus. The type of whale that comes to Hermanus is the southern right whale, migrating from Antarctica in June and remaining in the relatively warm waters of South Africa until November or December. Described as ‘gentle giants’, southern right whales present no threat to humans, so you can simply relax and enjoy the show!

The South Africa Safari tour will stop at Boulders Beach for penguin viewing on October 7. The soft white sand and warm(ish) waters are not the only reasons why 60,000 visitors a year make their way along the coast, past Simon’s Town, to Boulders Beach. The local inhabitants —African penguins in the thousands — know how to pull the crowds.

Very Knowledgeable & Personable Guide

Dana and I really enjoyed our trip with you Gerry.  I liked not changing lodging every day, and Gerry is a very knowledgeable and personable guide.  Our money was well spent with The Complete Traveler.  If I ever get rich I’ll go to South Africa with you.  In the meantime, I would like to go back to Ireland in 2 years.  When the time comes, I’ll be in looking for help.

So Much More Than What We Expected

Ireland has been on our bucket list for a long time and we have just returned. When we first got serious about putting together a trip, some friends suggested we visit with Mary N Gerry Buckley at The Complete Traveler in Overland Park, and we are so glad we did. This trip was so much more than what we expected. Gerry shares his passion and knowledge of his homeland, and Mary gently keeps everyone on time and comfortable. And if a bus tour isn't your thing, they will help you put together your own trip of a lifetime and not just to Ireland. John and I strongly encourage you to check out this small travel agency. You will love them!!
