South Africa

Cathy's verdict
South Africa delivers such awe-inspiring experiences and adventures but it's one of those places that is best seen as part of a group tour. On this solos-only trip you’ll experience wildlife encounters, wine-tasting, spectacular sight-seeing - and all with your own double room in first class hotels with no single supplement.
