Experience the spectacular diversity of South Africa in seamless luxury
– Steven Lake, Specialist Private Guide, ROAR AFRICA
Words will never do justice to the sheer geographical, cultural, and experiential diversity of this magnificent country on the southernmost tip of Africa. To believe it, you need to see the melting pot magic of South Africa’s extraordinary landscapes - dramatic mountain ranges, pristine beaches, spectacular wilderness areas teeming with wildlife, emerald Winelands, and world-class cities - with your own eyes.
South Africa, home to much of the ROAR AFRICA team, is often described as “the world in one country.” From Cape Town to the Kalahari Desert, our on-the-ground experts and local guides will unlock insider access to incredibly special experiences like a private tour of Robben Island led by Nelson Mandela’s former guard, Christo Brand, to the conservationists saving South Africa’s rhinos from extinction, and so much more. After all, we are sharing our home - the people, places, and hidden gems only a lifetime of lived experience uncovers - not selling a destination.
Take a scenic helicopter flight over Table Mountain. Paddle with penguins just outside Cape Town. Wake up with meerkat families in the Kalahari and track rare black-maned lions. Taste fine wine you’ve never heard of and can never buy with the world-class sommeliers we consider dear friends. Immerse yourself in this country’s long history and rich culture through the eyes of local experts who know it like no one else.
Get up close and personal with exceptional Big Five game viewing at South Africa’s most exclusive private game reserves and lodges, from Tswalu to our top selection of sublime Singita properties. Bask in spectacular scenery on private cycling excursions in Franschhoek. Enjoy cooking classes in the storied Bo-Kaap neighborhood. Visit pristine botanical gardens bursting with biodiversity. Experience magnificent art from Zeitz MOCAA and private collections at Delaire Graff to the otherworldly Dylan Lewis sculpture garden. Whatever your taste and preferences, we’ll show you the absolute best of South Africa in seamless luxury and the utmost safety.
ROAR AFRICA journeys change lives. Our philosophy is simple: we only introduce guests to the African safari destinations we know and love. For us, sharing the continent of our birth, the cradle of all humanity, is deeply personal. Our experts are available 24/7 on the ground in Africa, and our hand-picked guides will lead you through every step of your trip. And, of course, we purchase carbon credits equivalent to all our emissions, contribute to wildlife preservation, and invest in the communities that host us.
Join us on what we promise will be a restorative, rewilding, and hugely rewarding adventure with all the usual grind of travel completely removed. We cannot wait to share the extraordinary experiences and mind-blowing beauty luxury travel in South Africa has in store for you.
As man originated in Africa, we feel something magical about this land; it seems like our bodies and souls are fuller here. This explains my frequent visits to the continent. Of all of these trips, ROAR AFRICA’s journeys are no doubt the best. Because of the people they have introduced me to, and stories they shared, I got to see not only the beautiful scenery, but Africa’s soul.”
