South Africa 5-Day Tours & Itineraries

Explore 6 trips designed by local kimkim specialists to get ideas for your trip to South Africa.

Five days might not seem like a lot for a country as big as South Africa, but it’s enough to see the highlights—especially as part of a larger, multi-country tour of the region. A great option is to stay in Cape Town, with day trips to the Winelands region for tastings in rolling vineyards and Cape Peninsula to see the continent’s southwestern-most point. If nature and wildlife are your priority, opt for a 5-day safari in Kruger National Park, with flights into and out of nearby Johannesburg. Here, the famed African "Big 5" roam the wide-open landscapes.
