• Tour details •

Pre and post tours

Shaped by a rich history of influences, South Africa’s breathtaking beauty stretches over vast areas of land. Gold, diamonds and the spirit of adventure drew explorers and pioneers from all over the globe. Over time, different peoples settled in this land and now it is home to many cultures. Yet despite their diversity, all have come to think of themselves as South Africans. United by their deep-rooted love for this country – a land so beautiful, it binds all in a shared vision of hope and prosperity. It’s here that you will find the world’s oldest rocks, the world’s oldest fossils, and the world’s newest democracy.

Everywhere you go in South Africa your senses will be awakened. Whether it is on safari where you can witness a lion kill while someone else does the driving or hot-air ballooning across grasslands. Perhaps you would prefer to relax in the luxury of a 5-star hotel or breathe in the night air as you lie back with nothing between you and the wilderness but the canvas of your tent. Boredom is a word seldom used here.

There are many options available to those who would like to extend their trip and make a holiday out of it.

Please contact mary@idna.co.za to customise your experience or select “custom” from the pre-and-post tours booking form and we will be in touch to tailor a tour for you.

Excursions avant et après le congrès

Façonnée par une histoire riche en influences, la beauté époustouflante de l’Afrique du Sud s’étend sur de vastes étendues de terre. L’or, les diamants et l’esprit d’aventure ont attiré les explorateurs et les pionniers du monde entier. Au fil du temps, différents peuples se sont installés sur cette terre, qui abrite aujourd’hui de nombreuses cultures. Pourtant, malgré leur diversité, tous en sont venus à se considérer comme des Sud-Africains. Ils sont unis par leur amour profond pour ce pays, une terre si belle qu’elle les unit dans une vision commune d’espoir et de prospérité. C’est ici que vous trouverez les plus vieilles roches du monde, les plus vieux fossiles du monde et la plus récente démocratie du monde.

Partout où vous irez en Afrique du Sud, vos sens seront en éveil. Que ce soit lors d’un safari où vous pourrez assister à un abattage de lion pendant que quelqu’un d’autre est au volant, ou en survolant les prairies en ballon à air chaud. Peut-être préférez-vous vous détendre dans le luxe d’un hôtel 5 étoiles ou respirer l’air de la nuit en vous allongeant, sans rien d’autre que la toile de votre tente entre vous et la nature sauvage. L’ennui est un mot rarement utilisé ici.

De nombreuses options sont disponibles pour ceux qui souhaitent prolonger leur voyage et en faire des vacances.
