This is the only Kosher tour in the world that features the Southern Tip of Africa. Our trip starts in the best malaria-free private safari reserve in Southern Africa, offering the BIG 7. This trip also includes Cape Town.
A reserve that competes with the best on the continent, wild, open, and very advantageous to those who prefer to avoid malaria medication.
We then head south to Cape Town for a handful of days of touring, including downtime for Shabbos in a vibrant Jewish community. Our final 2 nights are spent in the most amazing coastal wilderness setting near the Southern Tip of Africa, in a lodge overlooking an ancient milkwood forest, protected biosphere reserves and stunning Walker Bay.
Starts every Monday at Johannesburg International Airport, and ends the next Tuesday back at Cape Town Airport. This is not a group tour, but a private tour for 2 or more guests wanting the flexibility of going at their own pace on day tours, smaller owner-run accommodations with a high focus on privacy and personal attention.
“Everything we needed was taken care of by the very helpful and friendly staff, including all kosher meals and safari drives. We only eat kosher and there was a full kosher kitchen where the chef made us delicious kosher food. What more can I say? If you are seeking an amazing place to stay, this is it!” - Doni & Ruth Stern, Israel

Many people do not realise that South Africa offers a wide array of safari regions and hence limit their choices down to Kruger. But to those who live here, we know that many of the other reserves offer excellent safaris, and those with children, or an aversion to malaria medication, travel to these “other reserves” and enjoy just as good a safari experience, without the hassle of malaria medication.
