Meet South Africa’s Best Travel Agents and Local Guides
Of course you can hop online and organize activities and places to stay in South Africa. But in such a vast country full of so many wonderful experiences, it is advisable to have your tour planned by a country expert.
An experienced travel agent design a tour that takes in all the things you really want to see and do in South Africa, while avoiding crowds of package tourists.
The best travel agents know the hidden heart of South Africa. They can arrange accommodation in hard-to-book luxury lodges, or a meal with a Zulu family in KwaZulu-Natal.
They know when the herds are on the move on the best places to see them and they have access to private game reserves that limit visitors to ensure the most authentic wildlife experience.
For top travel agents, authenticity is the key. They steer you clear of overly commercial tourist traps and instead, guide you towards encounters with local craftsmen, business owners and private citizens.
But finding a fantastic travel agent is not as easy as it sounds. Far too many take a cookie-cutter approach, organizing the same tours day after day without any thought to the preferences or passions of the people who they are serving.
At Trekerie, we have done the research on your behalf. We have pre-selected the top travel agents in South Africa, those that have a track record of excellence and innovation. Without exception, they receive glowing reviews (from often very demanding clients) and have numerous awards for their superior service.
Access to these agents is free, easy – and fun. All you have to do is fill in a very short questionnaire about your ideal South Africa vacation and we request our agents to provide competing travel plans, including activities, accommodation and budget outlines.
You get to choose the winner! Select the itinerary you prefer and then you can proceed with your chosen agent to plan an amazing vacation.
when is the best time to visit South Africa?
August to mid-October is springtime in South Africa mark the end of the dry season so shrub and bush is sparse. With less cover on the ground, this is when you will enjoy some of the best game viewing.
The Northern Cape and Western Cape are abloom with thousands of small plants that cover the semi-arid plains in an iridescent carpet of flowers.
Summer in South Africa runs from mid-October to mid-February.
Hot, sunny weather – often with afternoon thunderstorms that clear quickly, leaving a warm, earthy, uniquely African smell in the air.
The Western Cape, with its Mediterranean climate, is the opposite, with warm dry summers. Our curated travel agent will help you craft the perfect customized itinerary to get the most out of your safari vacation during summer.
Mid-February to April is fall in South Africa.
This time of year offers the best weather in some respects. Very little rain falls over the whole country, and it is warm but not too hot, getting colder as the season progresses.
In Cape Town, fall is fantastic, with hot sunny days and warm, balmy nights which many people spend outdoors.
Winter in South Africa runs from May to July.
Winter is when you will enjoy some of the best game viewing.
It’s a good idea to bring warm clothes to the higher-lying areas of the interior plateau. Days are dry, sunny, and crisp but nights can be cold with heavy frosts. The Western Cape gets most of its rain in winter.
