South Africa is one of those destinations that dreams are made of: surreal mountain landscapes and sublime seascapes, world-class wildlife safari, luxurious jungle lodges, cultural vivacity and history of the people, cosmopolitan cities and isolated Zulu and Shangaan villages, excellent South African wines and cuisine. With an immensely varied terrain and a rich natural diversity, South Africa offers a wide range of experiences and is a delight for the senses. This tour will become a highlight of your life. 

During our South African adventure, we'll spend 5 days in a luxury designer hotel on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town, exploring the vibrant city of Cape Town and the magnificent area that surrounds it. We will explore the Cape of Good Hope, where the Atlantic and the Indian oceans meet, walk on the Boulder Beach among the colonies of African penguins, take the cable car to Table Mountain and hike to beautiful vistas overlooking the city. We will also tour the South African Winelands with their renowned wineries, see the Kirstenbosch Botanic Gardens to walk on carpets of exotic flowers, stroll in quaint fishing villages and towns with impressive Cape Dutch architecture. 

Afterwards, the memorable part of the tour will be the 5 days spent at a safari at the luxurious Kapama Southern Camp Private Game Reserve, part of the Sabi Sands and the Kruger National Park ecosystem. Here, we'll experience the true magic of Africa: enjoy two daily game drives (safaris) to view the Big Five (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhino), bush walks and visiting local villages and learning about the Tsongas people who once lived on this land alongside the animals.

S&S is a wonderful women’s tour group that is exceptionally well planned. Kerry is a caring, friendly face to everyone. Exploring all the sights in a small, safe surrounding made for a fabulous trip. Do not hesitate if you are a solo traveler – you will be welcomed and never feel alone. This was my first trip with S&S and would highly recommend it. It was an outstanding experience for women who share the love of travel and adventures. - Joyce from Ohio

Excellent tour as usual. Sights and Soul is a class act. - Karen from New Hampshire

This was my 3rd trip with S+S. Each one exceeded my expectations. Seeing the animals close up and so many of them was breath-taking, but also the guides were able to provide a real feel for Arica. The tribal village was a high point. Kerry, our tour leader implies confidence. I always felt we would be on schedule and where we needed to be, yet she was flexible when needed. Thanks S+S for another memorable adventure. - Mary Jo from Virginia

This tour was much more than I could imagine it would be! The tours and meals exceeded my expectations. The accommodations were all wonderful. The Commodore was a great location, convenient to the waterfront. Camp Kapama was fabulous! The tour to a Namibian village was one of the many highlights of the trip. I really enjoyed the jeep and boat safaris – happy to have done both trips together. Kerry was great! She always asked how everything is and joined different people from the group for shopping, dinner, etc. and spent time with everyone. I can’t think of anything she could have done better. - Donna from Pennsylvania

This tour was a lifetime destination I have always desired and I am thrilled to have gone with S&S. You’re great! - Vicki from Colorado

I love traveling with S+S. I love that the group size is small enough not to feel lost in as a solo traveler, but large enough to find camaraderie. I appreciate S+S’s attention to detail. - Lynn from New York

This was my second tour with S+S. Everything from Kerry, our tour leader, guides and accommodations and food were perfect. The other ladies were friendly and welcoming. I will definitely travel with S&S again. - Karen from Oklahoma

It was such a wonderful and diverse tour in every way, showing the best that South Africa offers, and I felt very pampered. - Diana from Washington

I so enjoyed this tour. I came home with a sense of well-being and calmness. Was it observing nature at its finest moments? Perhaps! A trip of a lifetime! - Karla from Colorado

First of all, I have never seen such attention to detail from any tour company. I was equally impressed by the personal, prompt responses to any questions I had prior to departure. Second, the tour leader only added to the experience. Kerry was efficient, calm and caring. Having her with us, I knew that any glitches or mishaps would only be minor inconveniences.  Overall, the itinerary and the group itself was wonderful. - Laura from South Carolina

The tour was great! This is my third S&S tour. And after each one I’ve thought “well, there’s no way to top that trip” – but then the next trip blows me away even more than the last one! The safari in particular was amazing! The accommodations, staff, food – everything at Kapama was fabulous. It felt so luxurious, the people were so warm and genuine, but the wildlife were definitely the stars! I didn’t really imagine we would see so many animals and so close. It almost didn’t seem real. It was a dream come true. - Andrea from Ohio

This was my 5th trip with S+S. It was amazing! I especially enjoyed the game drives. It was incredible to see all of the animals – “the Big 5” – Too Cool! It was a trip of a lifetime. And Becky was always organized, calm and very friendly. She makes you feel welcome and safe in an unknown area of the world. The S+S tours are always well prepared, and I have enjoyed all 5 tours that I have taken. Thank you for making my travel dreams possible. - Julie from Arizona

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the 3 African countries . The safaris were my favorite. It was a spiritual trip for me to see the animals free in their natural habitats. I loved the hotels, food, shopping, excursions, etc. , and I thought Becky did a great job filling us in on everything from the safaris to where to eat, shop, safety tips, etc. - Kat from Virginia

Becky was a great tour director. The local guides were excellent. The accommodations (especially Kapama) were wonderful, as were all of the staff! I celebrated my 60th b'day while at Kapama and Becky made it very special + memorable, and I was absolutely surprised when the staff sang, danced and made me an awesome b'day cake! - Sylvia from Virginia

The S&S Africa trip was an adventure of a lifetime!  The word that came to mind daily was "awesome" and it really did not describe all the great things we did and saw up close!!!  Cape Town, Kapama Southern Camp and Victoria Falls...they were all wonderful. Deon, our Cape Town guide was the best ever.  Betheul, my Kapama Ranger, was great at telling stories and he taught us so much about the animals.  We saw them all!  It was an amazing experience. Victoria Falls and our sunset cruise down the Zambezi River was a nice end to an amazing adventure!  The hippo family was great to see.  I will be talking about this trip for years to come.  Great job Yolanta!  Sights and Soul continues to be my first choice when I'm looking for a great destination and well planned itinerary. - Suzanne from Virginia

I am back at home, jetlagged and trying to catch up, but with a jeep load of wonderful memories. Thank you to you and your wonderful travel company for the trip of a lifetime. I appreciated your organization and attention to detail, which kept things running very smoothly. - Marina from Newfoundland, Canada

What the Media Says About Us 

Women-Only South African Safari Tours
One of the most striking trends in the travel industry in recent years has been a dramatic increase in the number of women-only tours. While some tours are run by large companies seeking to take advantage of this trend, the most popular are run by small companies run by and for women with years of experience in the field. And while many women-only tours focus on conventional sight-seeing, shopping and spas, more and more are adding an greater element of adventure in the jungles of the Amazon or the savannahs of South Africa. more

Why travel with other women?
Many women do not have families or compatible friends who wish to travel. When going on a main-stream tour, women often find that most activities are geared towards couples and quite often they feel left out. Singles' tours are not always what women are looking for. If you do not have a traveling companion, there is also the issue of the expensive "single supplement", sometimes as much as 50 or even 100 percent of the tour cost. By going on women-only tours, women can easily avoid paying for the single supplement by sharing a room with another woman traveler.
