The tour will begin in the Northern Cape with a visit to Augrabies Falls, before heading towards the North West Province, Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal, Free State and winding down in the Eastern Cape and the Western Cape by the end of the month. Some highlights along the way include a visit to the Kruger National Park, Franschhoek and the Vredefort Dome, while sampling South African cuisine including KZN’s famous bunny chows, a traditional potjiekos in the Northern Cape, umngqusho in the Eastern Cape and bobotie in Cape Town. Some activities audiences can look forward to is the team turtle tracking in Sodwana, a night game drive and guided treetop walks in Mapungubwe.

The team will continue to observe Covid-19 protocols along the way, ensuring they keep their masks on, sanitise and social distance as far as possible. With local travel allowed under Level 2 lockdown, South Africans are encouraged to support local travel industries but continue to do so safely.
