Archbishop Desmond Tutu dubbed his beloved South Africa the “rainbow nation because of its political, historical and ethnic diversity. WBGO’s Trip to South Africa will connect you to what Archbishop Tutu found so very compelling.

Your trip commences in Johannesburg, the vibrant commercial capital with a thriving arts and music scene. You'll walk the streets of Soweto - an incubator of the civil rights movement in South Africa, from where Nelson Mandela began his quest for freedom.

You'll experience a few nights in the famous Pilanesberg Game Reserve, in a luxury lodge. While there, you'll have the opportunity to encounter the ‘Big 5’ (lion, buffalo, elephant, leopard and rhino) - picture taking only (!), on your daily safari drives with your professional ranger and tracker.

In Cape Town, you'll enjoy two nights attending the globally renowned Cape Town Jazz Festival (tickets included). Besides the nightly music, you will visit the Cape of Good Hope, savor the wines in Stellenbosch, take a cable car to the top of Table Mountain and enjoy the local Cape Malay cuisine...Plus more special unique experiences created , exclusively, for WBGO's travelers.
