Great tour with Gate 1 Travel

We have just returned from a wonderful trip to South Africa with Gate 1 Travel. This was our first trip with a travel group as we are very independent travellers, but for the South Africa trip we liked the comfort level of an organized tour. The value was exceptional as the quality of hotels, meals, tour guides was much higher then we expected. The tour started in Jo'burg, went to Kruger, Swaziland, St. Lucia and ended up in Cape Town. Safaris were included with the option to purchase extra safaris. We took all safaris offered and would suggest that you do that. If you want an affordable and quality trip to South Africa, I could certainly recommend this tour company. I am available for any specific questions you might have. If you have time on your own like we did in Cape Town, and you are a wine and foodie....do not miss a restaurant called La Colombe about 30 minutes outside of Cape Town in Constantia.

Thanks for a good review of one of the basic ways to see the country. These are almost always good value for money, with so much depending on the quality of the Escort and any specialist Guides that are used. Hotels are in the Protea group - good quality properties. Glad you enjoyed it!
