Join us for the ultimate South African golf safari. Your enjoyment is guaranteed!
This tour brings to life South Africa’s rich history, culture and traditions, awe-inspiring landscapes, iconic game viewing at Kruger National Park, boutique wines and quality golf courses stretching from Sun City to Cape Town. If you enjoy the challenge of a coastal course, there is a stunning selection available. If you prefer playing at altitude, where the ball flies that much further, the selection is just as exciting.
Fully escorted by an experienced Go Golfing host and an exceptional South African guide, you will be showered with attention and entertained with riveting stories as you travel through the South African landscape. You’ll be impressed with the quality of the accommodation, the golf courses and the many tour inclusions. Non-golfers will love coming along with a schedule of activities you’ll wish you could partake in. No other tour company has taken more golfers to South Africa than Go Golfing. This is always a sell-out. Reserve your spot today and start counting down the days to your South African golf safari. Come early and tick off Victoria Falls, one of Africa’s blockbusters from your bucket list.

This morning we travel to Sun City, South Africa’s Kingdom of Pleasure. This fully integrated lifestyle resort is a world within a city. It has a glitzy casino, water park, spa, restaurants, bars, boutiques, and most importantly, two world-class Gary Player- designed courses. You’ll be staying at Sun City’s Cascades Hotel, characterised by its tiered silhouette that rises out of its tropical surroundings like an Aztec temple. This evening we’ll bond over a welcome dinner and drinks as we get to know our fellow tour members and new found friends.

Anticipation will be running high this morning as we prepare for our first game. You’ll be keen to tee it up on the Lost City Golf Course. This desert style course is surrounded by spectacular views across the African wilderness. Beware of the famous 13th, a par 3 with Nile crocodiles residing in the moat around the green.

Enjoy a leisurely morning before we head to Clovelly Country Club for a challenging mid-day round of golf. Set in the Fish Hoek Valley, the course was designed to be secluded from the everyday noises of passing cars and local railway tracks to truly entrench your senses into your game. With breathtaking views of the False Bay Coastline and the surrounding mountains and valleys, it is little wonder that Clovelly was one of Bobby Locke’s favourite courses.
