South Africa Tours

South Africa occupies the most southern tip of Africa with its long coastline stretching more than 3 000 km from the desert border with Namibia on the Atlantic coast southwards around the tip of Africa and then north to the border of subtropical Mozambique on the Indian Ocean.

South Africa is one of the most diverse and interesting countries in the world. Tourists flock to South Africa for its natural beauty, wildlife and sunshine. 

Whether you're in South Africa on safari or to enjoy the beaches, breathtaking drives, whale-watching or unspoiled wilderness, Felleng Tours strives to help you experience the very best that the country has to offer.

Johannesburg

Johannesburg informally known as Jozi, Joburg or "the city of gold", is the largest city in South Africa and one of the 50 largest urban areas in the world. It is the provincial capital and largest city of Gauteng, which is the wealthiest province in South Africa. Johannesburg is the seat of the Constitutional Court. The city is located in the mineral-rich Witwatersrand range of hills and is the centre of large-scale gold and diamond trade. It was one of the host cities of the official tournament of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

In Johannesburg you can do the following day trips.  The most popular tour is Soweto and the Apartheid museum.  Here you will learn about our complex history, visit a local market in Soweto and also see how the people in squatter camps survive.  We will visit the Mandela House in Soweto.  Pass the World Cup stadium on the way to the Apartheid museum.

Pretoria and the Diamond mine

Another tour that you can also include is Pretoria.  Pretoria is the Administrative capital of South Africa and here you will visit the impressive Voortrekker Monument.  This is about the history that started before the Apartheid started in South Africa.  We also will visit the Parliament building that is known as the Union Buildings where you can take some pictures at the Mandela statue.  In the afternoon we will visit a diamond mine that is still in operation.

Pilanesberg National Park

An early morning drive to the Pilanesberg National Park is a most.  This is were you will search for the Big 5 animals in their own natural habitat. 

This National Park in the North West Province, South Africa, offers spectacular landscapes ranging around a central lake. Pilanesberg National Park, adjacent to Sun City, hosts just about every mammal of southern Africa, including the Big Five on 55 000 hectares of pristine unspoiled natural beauty.

Pilanesberg National Park is world famous geologically with a structure formed by volcanic eruptions 1 300 million years ago. Surrounding Mankwe Dam are rocky outcrops, open grasslands, wooded valleys and thickets providing a unique overlap of animal and bird habitats. This only occurs because the park is in a transition zone between the dry Kalahari and wetter Lowveld vegetation, commonly referred to as 'Bushveld'.

Thanks to an ambitious game translocation programme called Operation Genesis in 1979, involving reserve game-fencing and the re-introduction of many long-vanished species, Pilanesberg National Park, adjacent to Sun City, now has in excess of 7 000 animals including 24 of the larger species.

Pilanesberg National Park in the North West Province, South Africa, supports healthy populations of Lion, Leopard, Black and White Rhino, Elephant and Buffalo and a wide variety of rare and common species like the nocturnal Brown Hyena, the fleet-footed Cheetah, the majestic Sable, Giraffe, Zebra, Hippo and Crocodile and other animals. Over 300 bird species have been recorded.
