South Africa’s Complete Tour Operator

SOUTHERN CIRCLE TOURS & SAFARIS is an inbound wheels tour operator and complete destination management agency into South Africa. We are able to arrange your complete package in South Africa may it be guided tours, self-drive packages or accommodation, hotel/airport transfers or the hire of a vehicle.

The Durban office deals with the central reservations and enquiries for countrywide tours to afford you a one-stop service, while the other offices are responsible for the operations in their areas.

* Day Tours
We offer day tours in and around all the major cities in South Africa: Pretoria, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth. These tours are designed to showcase the particular cities and surroundings, especially unique and/or extraordinary phenomena, scenery, buildings and/or activities. Tours depart daily from all major hotels and guesthouses in and around the cities except where entry or activities pertaining to the specific tours are limited to certain days. It is a great way to explore the cities and can be booked at short notice.

* Drakensberg Mountains
The Drakensberg Mountain range stretches across 1600 km from south to north through South Africa. Some of the range’s highest peaks are found along the KZN border with Lesotho and Free State: uKhahlamba, Barrier of Spears. This part of the mountains is also declared a world heritage site. We operate three tours into various sections of the mountains, also called the ‘Berg’ by the locals. Both a one-day and a two day tour visit the southern section and a three day tour covers the central and northern parts of the Berg.

* Garden Route
The Garden Route is an exceptionally scenic area sandwiched between the Indian Ocean and the Outeniqua Mountain range. From secluded beaches, woodland valleys, clear riverine beauty and dense indigenous forests to the majestic mountain peaks, it truly resembles a garden created by Mother Nature. We have several tours with different durations operating through this area departing from both Cape Town and Port Elizabeth on either side of the Garden Route.

* Kruger Park
A piece of wilderness between the Crocodile and Sabie rivers was proclaimed as a national park in 1898. Since then the Kruger National Park has grown to nearly 20 000km,2 and became one of the world’s greatest reserves. We operate tours to the park from both Durban and Johannesburg. Alternatively we can design a fly-in package into one of the several airports in the area. You can also drive yourself around and stay overnight in one of the many public rest camps that we are able to arrange for you.

* Panorama Route
The Panorama Route consists of one breath-taking view after another where you'll experience mountains, forests, mountain streams, spectacular falls and the truly impressive Blyde River Canyon, one of the world's largest canyons. Other marvellous visits are to the Pinnacle, God’s Window and some of the picturesque villages dotted around. We operate several tours through this impressive area from Johannesburg and Durban coupled with amazing wildlife experiences when descending down the escarpment to the Lowveld.

* South African Battlefield Tours
The Battlefields in the region of KwaZulu-Natal bring to life the historical yet bloody Zulu-Anglo-Boer wars that played out here over a 70-year period. The early Settlers who emigrated from the Cape were in constant conflict with the Zulu and later the British joined the tussle, all basically for control of the fertile land! Some of the most famous battles in this region we visit are the battle of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift, the battle of Blood River, Spioenkop and the siege of Ladysmith.

* Zululand
Shaka Zulu turned the Zulus into one of sub-Saharan Africa’s fiercest armies and formed the Zulu nation. Today we explore by guided tour the culture, wildlife, lakes, bushveld, flood plains, densely forested dunes and fascinating eco systems that exist along this Zululand coast. This is one of the few places that still exist where one can stand on one of the world’s highest forested dunes, look west and witness a lion kill, turn east and watch elephants wandering on the beach while whales and dolphins play in the lukewarm waters of the Indian Ocean!

* Country Wide Tours
Our overland tours are designed to be combined together to form longer tours around the country and here we have combined some of our most popular tours as ready-made countrywide packages. Overland tours start off with durations as short as 2 days/1 night all the way 7 days/6 nights and they are all designed to be ‘plugged in’ together to form longer packages suited to your requirements. You could have lots of fun designing your own countrywide package if you do not find what you are looking for under the COUNTRYWIDE TOURS already put together for your convenience. Please contact us if you get stuck or to book your package, or merely do it online!
