This diverse South African adventure will feature fascinating paleontological localities; evocative  historical sites and modern cities; sublime mountain, veld, and coastal scenery; wildlife viewing and photography opportunities; delicious cuisine; and 4- and 5-star accommodations. Travel from the lovely Magaliesberg Mountains to early human sites in the “Cradle of Humankind,” such as Sterkfontein Caves.

Visit Blombos Museum of Archaeology and Pinnacle Point Caves, with tours of both by a curator and a guest archaeologist, respectively. Spend two nights at a luxurious safari lodge to explore the Kapama Game Reserve, enjoying morning and afternoon game drives. Take guided tours of Johannesburg and Cape Town, meet with paleoanthropologists, and tour the Cape Winelands, where you will sample some of South Africa’s most renowned wines.
