South Africa with UBC alumnus Timothy Jackson

Join UBC alumnus and accredited safari guide Timothy Jackson to see awe-inspiring wildlife, world class wineries, and incredible scenery in a country of outstanding diversity.

Taste fine wines in the Cape Winelands, our base for exploring Cape Town, a singularly beautiful and vibrant city, and for taking in the awesome scenery of the Cape of Good Hope. There’s more incredible scenery in the jagged, green sweep of the Drakensberg; a vast sweep of exceptional natural beauty in basalt summits and escarpments that contribute to the otherworldly atmosphere of the ‘Mountain of Dragons’. Here we’ll walk and hike, view the substantial assembly of San bushman rock paintings, or simply relax and take in those magnificent views.

Safari time takes us to the one of the world’s greatest wildlife-watching destinations. All of Africa’s iconic safari species – elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, giraffe, hippo, and zebra – plus many more and over 500 varieties of bird are here for us to discover. We’ll be dividing our time between Umlani Bushcamp in the private Timabavati Game Reserve and Pafuri Camp in the northern Makuleke Concession, two exceptional and diverse sites. Local safari guides will introduce large concentrations of big game as we travel by jeep and explore on foot.

Timothy’s long-standing connections to the people and places we will be visiting make this a very special experience.
