"I believe that South Africa is the most beautiful place on earth. Admittedly, I am biased, but when you combine the natural beauty of sunny SA with the friendliness and cultural diversity of our people and the fact that the region is a haven for Africa's most splendid wildlife, then I think even the most scrupulous critic would agree that we have been blessed with a truly wonderful land". - Nelson Mandela -

The arrestingly diverse landscape of the North West is occupied by charming people whose responsibility to the land parallels their strong sense of tradition. You are ensured of an adventure as you experience a connection with tours which are effectively the culture of every person on the planet.
