South Africa

When Princeton Journeys last offered this program, it was sold out within a matter of weeks of its announcement and returned with rave reviews. Travel to South Africa to experience the diverse threads of South Africa's history, an animal kingdom of enormous diversity, the birthplace of mankind's earliest ancestors, the meeting place of two great oceans and the juxtaposition of transplanted European values and indigenous tribal norms. Discover the rich history of South Africa's oldest city, Cape Town; marvel at the beauty of the Cape Peninsula; and explore the justly acclaimed Stellenbosch wine region. Then board the luxurious Rovos Rail for a two-day journey across South Africa's sweeping landscapes, enjoying all the comforts of the golden age of train travel: unsurpassed service, sumptuous furnishings, panoramic views of spectacular landscapes and fine dining. Visit Kimberley, site of the first diamond discoveries in South Africa; Pretoria, South Africa's administrative capital; and Johannesburg, where the struggles of apartheid played out so dramatically. Meet with alumni and Princeton in Africa fellows before ending your adventure at Kapama Game Reserve for a magnificent safari experience.

Please note: Princeton travelers will be joined on this program by those from Smith College.
