Overview
More
Umzantsi Afrika Tours (Est.2002)operates out of the coastal city of Port Elizabeth, South Africa - well known for its golden sandy beaches, abundance of game and safari parks and cultural heritage of the local San, Khoi-Khoi and Xhosa clans. This area is synonymous with the colonialisation of the Eastern Cape and the arrival of the 1820 British Settlers. Port Elizabeth lies at the top of the Garden Route and has easy travel routes by road to Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and into the Karoo. Our tour company can provide you with day tours, tours especially designed to meet your needs and also short trips for cruises docking in our harbour. We offer a particularly personal experience and will be as flexible as possible to make your holiday a special one. We pride ourselves on customer satisfaction and, most of all, creating holidays that make memories. Contact us through the website, email or via telephone and find out what makes us different. We look forward to hearing from you.Lyn and Peter
