Travel is back! We are so stoked to have been hitting the road for the past 5 months, in our element, hosting guests on numerous trips and showcasing the raw landscapes of South Africa with unvarnished, true to the bone experiences.
It has been a game of waiting filled with uncertainty, doubt and fear although we have made it through the storm with just a few bumps and bruises. On 12 November, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the reopening of South Africa’s borders to all country’s worldwide.
Being a part of the tourism industry does mean we are greatly impacted by this epidemic, however, there are sectors and individuals that are more vulnerable to the effects of this global issue.
If you're planning a visit to Cape Town, or have friends and family who've already been, chances are that somewhere you've come across the phrase "Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens".
With over 140 wine farms to explore around Cape Town, it can be a daunting task figuring out which ones to visit - especially if you only have a few days in Cape Town and you want to maximize your time and experiences.
It's summer, and Cape Town is vibrantly showing off its white sandy beaches, cool summer breezes and an endless list of outdoor activities, which begs the question, "what should I do if I only had one day in Cape Town?".
As the owner, director and head guide of the company, I have spent many years exploring the southern tip of Africa. My love for this remarkable place and my perpetual sense of adventure has led me to start this passion project.
Table Mountain is Cape Town’s major landmark and the crown jewel of the city. There may be other flat-topped peaks in the world, but none as famous or well-loved as our Table Mountain.
Cape Town's South Peninsula is home to a plethora of beauty and charm. As the most south-western tip of the African continent, this area hosts some of the most exquisite landscapes, wildlife and history.
On our trip, Josh and Saffa Tours put together an amazing itinerary, based on what we were into, and they provided us with an absolutely incredible trip. My wife and I love to travel, and have worked with many groups such as Saffa Tours; this trip was, by far, our favorite tour, and Saffa was the best guide group we’ve ever used.

We cannot thank Saffa Tours enough for making our precious time in the Cape the best it could be. I cannot recommend Josh and his company Saffa Tours enough, as they made our time in South Africa in the Cape absolutely amazing and we were looking forward to the holiday because of the great preparation.

Absolutely brilliant trip to Cape Town and around the Western Cape with Josh and the Saffa team. Perfectly and thoughtfully organised, full of insight and fun. Could not recommend more!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. Well worth the cost visiting in the Cape area where there are so many things to do. Lightyears ahead of what a larger tour group would be able to put together. From small details to adjusting the daily itinerary on the fly.

Never have I encountered such organization, such fire for exploration - to show and to teach, and such willingness to adapt the bespoke tours and plans offered at any moment. We felt understood, we felt appreciated, and we felt that our best interests were always put first.

Wow, what a phenomenal tour guide. Knowledgeable, confident and so interesting. Our experience was carefully curated to suit our interests and passions and one could not have done a better job. We have been truly enriched by the SAFFA tours experience and can confidently recommend! South Africa and SAFFA tours; thank you!

Amazing tour company. Josh helped plan our itinerary around the activities we wanted to do. Due to weather conditions a couple of the activities were cancelled but there were alternatives ready straight away. Rich was our guide and he was a joy to be around. Highly recommend!
