SERIOUSLY SURPRISING!

FROM THE MOMENT YOU CHECK-IN, YOU WILL KNOW THIS IS … ‘that vacation’ — the one that is going to change everything! Yes — this adventure begins and ends in the US with roundtrip airfare from JFK. Fantasy RV Tours has created this incredible experience, taking everything into consideration …exceptional in every way.

The first three days in South Africa begin with acclimation in a deluxe, waterfront hotel - and incredible sightseeing around the glorious city of Cape Town. Fine local wines …visit the Cape of Good Hope and have a penguin encounter. Excited, and ready, you will head-out in your fully equipped RV rental to begin your photo-safari. Every driving day is less than 200 miles (more than 1/3rd are under 100 miles) making it very easy to stop and enjoy the amazing sights, the incredible shores and experience the unique culture & wildlife. Imagine stopping for a family of elephants to cross the road, or to see a giraffe – feeding high above a dazzle of zebras …and having the time because you are behind the wheel. You will see the ‘Big Five’ in their natural and protected habitat, accompanied by professional guides to ensure your safety and enjoyment.

Southern Africa is filled with more than wildlife – there are a variety of distinct cultures which you will encounter. The Zulu and native villages will welcome you, and your guide, to experience their traditions, crafts and music; the unusual Indian Market in the beautiful bay city of Durban will intrigue you – and the small towns and farming villages are inviting …filled with fresh produce and delightful people.

South Africa will seduce your senses …you will be enchanted here like nowhere else in the world. Join Fantasy and our expert guides as we explore South Africa on this unique and exciting RV wildlife safari.

Expand your experience with a four day add-on to Victoria Falls.
