Cape Town / Johannesberg / Victoria Falls / Botswana
Cape Town / Johannesberg / Victoria Falls / Botswana

These packages are a general trip lay out.I have left them purposely free of activities so you can add in local South Africa World Cup activities as they become known/available, and or local tours which you want to do... We will do this as we go along. These South Africa World Cup Travel packages are custom designed, and as such can be changed to meet your needs. The availability of South Africa World Cup tickets is closely maintained by FIFA, and as the World Cup get closer, their is a specific time line and process to obtain tickets. Since their is a limited amount of world cup tickets, and not everyone will be able to obtain tickets, their will be huge fan parks where the games can be viewed. As such, I can design your World Cup Soccer package to maximize your stay in South Africa, enjoying the multiple and varied opportunities to view the 2010 World Cup Games, as well as to experience the beauty and variety that South Africa has to offer. We can use the type of lodging you want to meet your budget. We can extend or shorten these trips as you like. Remember that within South Africa many of the bigger cities are destinations within themselves. Map of the stadiums: 3 of them on the ocean: Durban, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town 1 of them very close to the Kruger National Park: Nelspruit 1 of them relatively close to Botswana, and a United Nations World Heritage Park: Polokwane with nice cultural tours 5 of them are urban areas,some large, some smaller: Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Durban, Johannesburg, Pretoria So if you are going to enjoy the World Cup atmosphere, and cannot afford a game ticket or tickets, there will be huge TVs in all or most of these cities with the games being shown.. The atmosphere will be incredible, with lots to do and enjoy in between games. Imagine watching the games with he ocean in the background.....memorable locations to watch the worlds favorite game.

For more than two decades, this unique safari has been a great choice for combining incredible wildlife viewing, hiking and African cross-cultural experiences. In 2008, we are further refining this trip as the premier nature and culture safari experience in East Africa. You will enjoy a combination of fine lodges and private, catered bush camping in remote areas with great hiking. You will meet some of the most interesting tribes in East Africa and encounter great herds of wildlife on foot, all from a spacious, comfortable, air-conditioned safari van. Throughout, you will benefit from a guide who is both an expert naturalist, as well as a friend of the people in the communities you will visit. In August and September, you can expect an inside view of the great Serengeti migration. You will have a good chance of seeing a million animals in a pristine African setting. If you make only one African safari, this is a great choice! All departures will be led by James Makau Nzioka, an expert Kenya birder, naturalist, conservationist and educator. A few words from your guide: “I have worked with Journeys for many years and I am very pleased to be leading this trip. We observe animals to understand them, never on a rushed program. We work with conservationists, and we enjoy spending evenings with you discussing issues that affect conservation in Kenya, past, present and future. I know that leadership is the key for visitors to really know and earn a great appreciation of a destination. It is always my pleasure to share what Kenya has to offer. As a guide, I know I am Kenya's ambassador to the outside world and I promise to do my job with great care and sincerity.”
