Ferguson Family & Friends

South Africa

A South African Family Experience

9 Days - 8 Nights | October 17 - 26, 2023


Our trips are curated exclusively for families who desire a global experience.  We are committed to a Stress-Free family vacation.

Our experiences are engaging, culturally enriching, and chosen from highly ranked popular attractions. Tour guides are licensed and insured, reputable and handpicked with your family in mind.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we are so pleased you’ve chosen to take part of this celebration with the Ferguson family.


Your journey to South Africa begins in Johannesburg, often referred to as Jo’burg. It is South Africa’s largest city and the center of South African Commerce. Renowned as the City of Gold, Jo’burg is a vibrant city with a vast web of suburbs and townships and a wealth of history and things to do and see! Your full-day guided tour in Jo’burg includes the Hector Pieterson Museum, the iconic Apartheid Museum, and a stop in Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu’s neighborhood. 

Next, you’ll journey to Pilanesberg National Park for an unforgettable safari experience. The Pilanesberg National Park is approximately a 2-hour drive from Jo’burg, but we promise you’ll enjoy the view. Pilanesberg is Malaria free. Join your group on daily 4×4 game drives to search for the Big 5 and other large mammals of South Africa present at the reserve. Treat yourself to some indulgence at the spa or shuttle to Sun City’s famous resort and casino for some action! 

Your next destination is Cape Town, South Africa, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Magnificent views of Table Mountain and the vast Atlantic Ocean make this city one of the most laid-back cities in the Southern Hemispheres. Guided tours in Cape Town include a full-day Peninsula Tour and Cape Winelands Day Tour.  

Welcome aboard the Blue Train. As an add-on option, your family can join the ranks of Kings and presidents who have indulged on this magnificent, moving five-star “hotel-on-wheels”. From love-struck honeymooners, to adulated celebrities. And even ordinary folk who fantasize about a life of spectacular luxury, a life that has seemed tantalizingly out of reach. Until now…

Note:  Blue Train experience from Cape Town to Pretoria (Oct. 26-28,2023) will be available to add to your package Fall 2022.
