We have moved!

South Africa Travel Plan has a new home. We have combined all of our existing travel plan destinations on to our brand new mobile friendly Rickshaw Travel website.

Why did we do this? To make it easier to find an independent, meaningful holiday experience that is right for you. And if you're feeling brave why not visit more than one country in your trip!

See you there! The Rickshaw team.

Independent South Africa travel - Wild and adventurous

Build Your Own South Africa Self Drive Trip

South Africa offers one great adventure after another. Vast vineyards, sweeping landscapes and an incredible array of wildlife are just waiting to be discovered. We'll give you a chance to see the real South Africa, staying in Swazi beehive huts, bush chalets and traditional rondavels (circular African huts). Our friendly South Africa specialists have a personal in-depth knowledge of South Africa and we use small-scale, locally run accommodation with traditional touches and warm welcomes to help you build a South Africa self-drive trip to really remember. 

Try a Kruger National Park safari, drive the epic Garden Route, look out over Cape Town from the top of Table Mountain, hike through the Drakensberg, take vineyard tours and experience traditional cultures. It really is a world in one country. Whatever your choice, we'll organise the right South Africa travel experience for you; just give us a call on 01273 322047.

What does South Africa Travel Plan offer?

South Africa Travel Plan offers you the opportunity to put together your own unique, South Africa travel experience, by giving you a wide choice of building blocks (modules). These are bite-sized South Africa travel experiences usually lasting between two and three days each. Choose from a number of different short South Africa tours which include classic South Africa highlights such as Kruger National Park, Cape Town and the Garden Route. We have also found some more unusual options, such as a different take on the Cape Winelands, a stay on a working South African Farm and the African Kingdoms of Swaziland and Lesotho. 

If you want to organise your travel in South Africa before you arrive, but you don't want to book a group tour, we offer the perfect solution. You can create an action-packed South Africa trip itinerary or something a little more laid back, it's completely up to you. If you need inspiration, we also offer a number of South Africa self drive holidays which include many of the highlights in a logical order.
