About Umzantsi Afrika Tours

Do you want to experience the realisation of your African Dream? Allow Umzantsi Afrika South Africa to partner with you on developing a tour package of your choice.

Bring your family for an educational holiday where the children can learn all about our diverse cultures, beautiful country and animals.

We are Umzantsi Afrika Tours (meaning South Africa in the local Xhosa language) - an award-winning tour group which operates out of the South East African coastal city of Port Elizabeth. Known as the friendly city Port Elizabeth is an attractive holiday destination with an abundance of safe, golden sandy beaches, rich indigenous and colonial history and a proximity to many exciting malaria-free game parks where you can expect to see the Big 5 in their natural habitat.

Situated at the eastern end of the world-famous Garden Route, Port Elizabeth is seen as the gateway to the diversity of the South African landscape, flora and fauna, and abounds with natural beauty, rich cultural heritage and outdoor adventure.

Tours & Shuttle Services

Our tours cover the whole of Southern Africa with special emphasis on the Eastern Cape, Karoo, Cape Town to Port Elizabeth and the picturesque Garden Route including Knysna and Oudtshoorn – home to the ostrich. All tours are conducted by professional THETA qualified tourist guides in English, German and various other languages. Our tours are varied in nature and can be tailored to suit your group size - from large coach group to smaller more intimate options – your budget and your specific interests or choice of experience.

We have many day or overnight ideas ranging from the Cape Wine routes, Golf packages, Namaqua flower experiences, dolphin / whale-spotting, activity-based outdoor adventures and opportunities to interact directly with elephants – these are experiences not to be missed and have to feature on anyone’s wish-list.

Verified reviewvery good

I loved my three day trip. Despite the tension sometimes beforehand, the trip went so well. You husband adapted well to my choices. If he wasn't into something, he would find someone to talk with and enjoy himself. I was sad when it ended. I wanted to see so many places out there in that area of South Africa. Thank you.
