Few countries showcase nature’s diversity like South Africa. Vast deserts, lush wetlands, imposing mountains and breathtaking coastline - South Africa has it all. The wildlife-spotting opportunities are endless, from the ‘Big 5’ in Greater Kruger National Park, to the crocodiles, hippopotami and teeming birdlife of the St Lucia Estuary. Learn about the unique culture in eSwatini, and South Africa’s apartheid past on Robben Island. Enjoy the spectacular coastline and a drop of the local wine as you travel the picturesque Garden Route to cosmopolitan Cape Town.

Our adventure starts with a city tour of Johannesburg, before travelling to Dullstroom where we enjoy some free time. No tour of Africa would be complete without a visit to our next destination, the sensational Kruger National Park. This is Africa’s largest game reserve and a great place to see the ‘Big 5’ in their natural habitat. We travel along the stunning Panorama Route, with its scenic waterfalls. We also spend time at the Jane Goodall Chimpanzee Sanctuary before spending a night in the Kingdom of eSwatini.

Our touring continues along the famed Garden Route, one of the most beautiful routes in South Africa. Here we visit the famous Cango Caves, with their huge labyrinth of tunnels created from amazing limestone formations and enjoy a meerkat adventure!

The picturesque Western Cape

From the whale-watching capital of Hermanus, we make our way west to Stellenbosch. Famed for its scenic beauty, it’s a great place for wine tasting.

WOW. What an experience. Our tour guide Desiree Pringle was the perfect person to lead this trip. She has a wealth of knowledge and a great sense of humor so coped with us Aussies very well. The safaris in Kruger were fabulous. Managed to see all of the big 5. Even being shirt fronted by a big bull elephant was great. The eco tents and beehive huts were such and awesome experience. I travel on my own so was a bit worried about how I would fit in with everyone else, but I have made some wonderful friends from this trip. Most definitely the best overseas trip I have ever been on. I have travelled with Bunnik before and also with other tour companies but from now on it's BunnikTours or I stay home. Maureen Dean - March 2017

Seeing the animals in the game parks was a dream come true. The guides and drivers gave us a trip to remember. Lyndell Holtham - September 2015
Kruger to Cape Town Blown away 5
I was sitting in Johannesburg airport yesterday waiting for my flight home. I was approached by a young South African woman who asked me to participate in a survey for South African tourism. The questionnaire lasted 10 minutes. Every activity, sight and experience she mentioned in the survey we had done on our tour. Following the interview she asked who had organised our tour. She stated that they should be congratulated because you have really seen South Africa. Every day was magical. Anne Colmer - August 2015
