Choose to arrive early and discover Victoria Falls where you’ll stay at the exclusive and ultra luxurious River Club lodge. Extend your stay to discover Cape Town.

Nothing evokes a South African adventure more than iconic game drives through world-renowned Kruger National Park and staying in a private game lodge — it’s the ultimate immersive experience.

The border between the national park and private reserves are unfenced and the wildlife takes full advantage of the habitat. Jock Safari Lodge is intimate and private, and we’ve booked it exclusively for our group, so this tour is limited to 14 room bookings.

Sun City, known as South Africa’s Kingdom of Pleasure, is a must-play for golfers. It is a fully integrated lifestyle resort with two world-class Gary Player-designed courses. Fancourt Golf Resort is home base for an entire week, where you’ll tee off at the famed Links golf course. There’s a challenge against club members and you’ll be part of a unique Australia vs South Africa showdown plus a decadent dinner afterwards at the clubhouse.

Other highlights include the famed Leopard Creek Country Club and the exquisite Montagu and Outeniqua courses; plus the spectacular Pinnacle Point, which is favourably compared to Pebble Beach.

I would highlight the stay at Thornybush Lodge (Private Game Lodge, Kruger) and the lion roaring and the leopard just strolling past. The accommodation was fabulous everywhere we stayed. I have to admit that I really enjoyed Peter’s sense of humour. Loved the golf format, the group dinners and the players’ profile.

Trish (QLD) Nov 2017 South Africa

The first highlight was living out in the bush at Thornybush and seeing all the wild animals in their natural environment. Watching and listening to our guides and trackers describing how animals would react to our presence. The golf courses were first class, in particular, The Gary Player course, The Links and the Montagu courses at Fancourt. The scenery at Pinnacle Point was spectacular. I was impressed with the way the whole tour was organised and the way Peter and Sylvie were always ready to fix any little problem that cropped up.

David (NSW) Nov 2017 South Africa

Thornybush Lodge and the game Park adventures definitely highlight seeing the big 5 and being so close to them was incredible. WOW moment too many to relay but the herd of elephants with 2 young ones, the leopard with its kill and just to be so close to the lions right up there with the best. The golf courses at Sun City, Fancourt and Pinnacle Point were breathtaking. My favourite was The Links at Fancourt the backdrop of mountains and layout incredible. Accommodation could not falter. As a non-golfer, my husband had a fantastic time.

Di (NSW) Nov 2017 South Africa

This has to be a bucket list holiday. Absolutely everything we saw and did was far above our expectations. Thank you Peter, Sylvie & Go Golfing.

Sharon (TAS) Nov 2017 South Africa

Stay at Thornybush was exceptional with great sightings from our game park drives culminating in the final morning when our jeep was surrounded by a herd of elephants. Fancourt was a beautiful resort, unlike anything we have in Oz from the standard of accommodation, helpfulness of the staff and fantastic courses especially the Links. Pinnacle Point was the most spectacular course I have ever played.

Richard (NSW) Nov 2017 South Africa

Highlights were definitely Kruger, Sun City, Fancourt, Arabella and Pinnacle Point. The people were all very friendly and easy to get along with.  The hosts were very hospitable and both Peter and Sylvie were great.  Competitions were great and the team event added another dimension to the competition as we got closer to the end of the tour.

Chris (VIC) Nov 2017 South Africa

The wow factor for me was the safari followed closely by the golf courses. Enjoyed them all except for my performance. The accommodation, organisation and hosts were second to none.  Would recommend the trip to everyone.

Brian (QLD) Nov 2017 South Africa 

The 5 Giraffes seeing us off from Kruger… My “WOW” moment… Accommodation +++ Organisation +++

Ann (VIC) Feb 2017 South Africa 

The golf courses were the wow moment for me especially Fancourt. The accommodation was special I would have been happy to stay longer. The Links course was my favourite I had a wonderful day. my second was The Montagu. Thornybush was another wow moment, again spectacular accommodation and then, of course, the safaris. Pinnacle Point was a pleasant surprise.
