Rickshaw South Africa Travel Specialist Fiona looking at an elephant standing outside her car


South Africa was my home for over 20 years and in that time I travelled extensively within it with friends and family. South Africa is a country of such great diversity and has much to offer those who visit its shores. From the thrill of spotting your first wild cat to standing in awe of the mighty Drakensburg, this is a country that despite its past has emerged with pride and great beauty to share with all who venture to the most southerly tip of the African continent.

South Africa will always have a special place in my heart as this is where I proposed to my wife. The beautiful surroundings of the vineyards makes it a perfect romantic getaway. The main reason people travel to South Africa is for the game reserves and travelling will Rickshaw will make sure you experience this from a sustainable stand point. South Africa is so much more though. The country is steeped in history and it’s interesting to hear about all of the highs and lows of this amazing country.
