South Africa and its bordering neighbours (Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Zambia) have an incredibly captivating history, and everyone should enjoy their culture, land, and people. As directors of Travel Republic Africa, we decided that local tour operators were not doing enough to cater to the needs of people with disabilities, particularly those who utilise wheelchairs.
In our recent endeavours, we have created travel packages specifically tailored for people with disabilities. We have partnered with organisations that provide appropriate transportation, accommodation, and entertainment facilities so that the handicapable can feel included and enjoy the marvels of our beautiful country without any compromises.
We have taken small-size groups on Safari Tours, tours to the Wine Lands and remote regions of our country in such a manner that they truly experience the full and rich wonders of Southern Africa.
As with all the travel tour packages offered by Travel Republic Africa, this South African tour package is purely an example of what we can arrange for you. All our vacation packages can be tailored to your specific taste, needs and budgetary requirements. Our goal is, and will always be, to provide you with the best African travel experience for you.

Jozi is South Africa’s version of the city that never sleeps. Something interesting is always happening here, and the people are always in the mood. The vibrancy is infectious, and there is always a buzz. Johannesburg’s history has become a massive part of its culture, and as a result, the city’s history has worked its way into tourist attractions. This city was a vocal point during the uprisings and was often the centre of attention during Apartheid. And a lot of this history is revisited during the Johannesburg City Tour.

The Cape of Good Hope was first stumbled upon by the Portuguese sea traveller Bartolomeo Dias. This significant event occurred in 1488. He named it The Cape of Storms.
However, the Portuguese King John II did not like this name, and he ordered the renaming of it to the Cape of Good Hope. Thus, hoping that the name would somehow appease the depths of the sea and the way to India would be opened, which later happened.
From the Cape of Good Hope, you will be taken by boat to Seal Island. The main attraction of Good Hope, of course, is the lighthouse with a height of 240 meters (788 feet), built in 1860.
Today the lighthouse does not work, because often it is shrouded in a veil of clouds and ships still do not see it. It is equipped with an observation deck which is reachable by cable car.
