Tailor-made holidays to South Africa

Tailor-made Holidays in South Africa

We specialise in tailor-made holidays to South Africa. With dramatic mountain ranges, stunning scenery and wild coast, excellent snorkelling & diving, world class vineyards, a rich cultural history and some of the best safari lodges in Africa, there is something for everyone. In addition to our first hand knowledge of all of these destinations, we are proud to work with the very best small guest-houses, hotels and lodges. We also have a network of superb guides allowing you to really experience South Africa, whether that is hiking Table Mountain, exploring Cape Town's thriving food scene, visiting Robben Island with a former inmate from Nelson Mandela's era, canyoning in Blyde Canyon, visiting the battlefields of the Anglo-Zulu war or going on safari.

Where to go When? The Garden Route and Eastern Cape areas are malaria free and easy to self-drive (great for young families) and ideal for the South African Summer. During the winter months, we suggest you combine some time on the Cape with a safari in the Kruger area or the malaria-free reserves of Madikwe or Kwa-Zulu Natal.

Why Book with Tourdust? We have tried & tested these itineraries with our own children and have over 15 years experience of selling holidays in South Africa. For added peace of mind, we have ABTA & ATOL bonding. Our sample itineraries will give you a taster of how we like to put together tailor-made holiday in South Africa, but simply the best way to get started is to pick up the phone and start with a conversation with one of our South Africa experts.

  • Everything worked perfectly! We all found our trekking experience to be the best part of our adventures in Morocco. We were particularly pleased with our guide, Hussain; he did a brilliant job. He is thoughtful, knowledgable, and sweet. He represents you well.

    MissingJacob Moffat reviewing Atlas Valleys & Villages Comfort Treks on 09 March 2017

  • Service rating : Lisa organised for us the Best Holiday in South Africa, covering The Lowveld, Kruger, Swaziland, Zulu Land and Cape Town. Her efficiency in sorting our for us this package within 2days was so proffessional wih no request being a problem
    Product : The most perfect family holiday to cater for adults and children and to keep everyone happy and intrigued! Beautiful Scenery, Wonderful Peope and Amazing Culture . A trip of a life time.

    Ben feefo reviewer verified review for Best of KwaZulu-Natal Holiday on 05 January 2017

  • Thanks for organising an excellent holiday for us. It's my first time using Tourdust and I've been really impressed and will certainly be recommending you to friends and family. You provided an excellent level of service all the way through, and the bespoke nature of the trip was fantastic whilst being really good value for money.
    Key highlights:
    - Le Kasbah de Toubkal blew us away - one not to miss!
    - The trek was amazing and my kids loved it. The camping was really fun, the food was excellent, and I'd particularly call out our guide Rashid who was fantastic show especially with my kids.
    - Riad Adore was outstanding - far exceeding my expectations - it was beautiful and we were very well looked after
    - Le Doux Tour was luxurious and a nice relaxing way to end the holiday.
    - Logistics were great and our main driver Mustapha was brilliant

    If there was one build / thing I would change, it's a very small one but some candles / lanterns to use in the evening whilst camping would have made it easier to stay outside for a bit longer.
