Every country in the world displays some diversity, but South Africa, the Rainbow nation, stretching from the hippos in the Limpopo River to the penguins waddling on the Cape, takes some beating. It befits its position at the southern end of the world’s most epic continent, with more types of terrain than photographers can shake their zoom lens at from Kruger National Park to Cape Peninsula.
Travel between the legacy of Apartheid and Johannesburg today, visiting the famous apartheid museums, the Soweto townships, the infamous Robben Island prison, and learn much from the struggles and contributions of the two Nobel prize winners, Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. We will also visit, learn and understand the various Muslim communities from their first settlement 200 years ago, during the apartheid period and challenges today!

“Thank you for a wonderful tour. We really enjoyed it and have come home full of beautiful images and interesting information. We would very much like to thank Yazeem personally – Thank you again, and look forward to maybe going on another tour with you again”. -, Brandino Machiavelli, UK, – October2014
“I liked the diversity of activities, the number of cities visited and the theme that ran across the tour. I also found our guide, Yaseen to be fantastic and extremely cooperative. He went beyond the call of duty to help us all. As was our driver Antonio. We wanted a short but interesting holiday with the children that was convenient yet informative/educational. We were very interested in discovering the Islamic heritage of Spain and sharing that with our young children. “. -Nizar Al-Musawi and Huda Jawad, UK,October2014
