Update (Dec. 23, 12:30 p.m. PT): This deal is sold out on March 13; Sept. 24.

Discover mountainous plateaus and glimmering waters, ride alongside elephants and antelopes across weathered hills, and experience the true diversity of Nelson Mandela's Rainbow Nation on a six-night tour of South Africa for $1899 per person including taxes.

Saving more than $450 on similar vacations, this includes:

  • Roundtrip airfare on South African Airways
  • Flights and transportation within South Africa
  • Six nights (four in Cape Town and two in a game reserve) at well-reviewed hotels
  • 10 meals: six breakfasts, two lunches and two dinners
  • Safaris: four game drives in a malaria-free zone and additional tours
  • Services of an English-speaking guide and game rangers

The trip starts in Cape Town, where travelers absorb the country's culture and ascend by cable car to the top of Table Mountain. The hotel is on the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, a picturesque marina with a myriad dining and entertainment options.

The group is then whisked away to the Entabeni Safari Conservancy, which unlike other famous parks included in many South Africa vacations, is a private game reserve. The advantage is that expert rangers are not restricted by hours of operation and can conduct more game drives -- including at dawn and dusk, when the Big 5 are the most active.

Depart from New York on Sept. 24, 2014, to get the $1899 price or add $50 per person to depart from Washington, D.C. Departures on March 13, 30; May 29; Oct. 11, 18, 25; Nov. 8 start at $50 more per person; click below for pricing. Longer tours are also available.
