A Jewel of Africa Safaris tour is more than just an adventure. It is a unique opportunity to experience Southern Africa’s nature and cultures. Many a friendship is built over a glass of one of our exceptional world-renowned South African wines around a cosy campfire. As it throws sparks into star-studded skies, the Southern Cross and the amazing Milky Way can be seen clearly as the soothing night sounds of the fiery night jar, lions and hyenas echo throughout the night.
