About

When Nelson Mandela was released from Robben Island, he reportedly said that Cape Town was the city from where he drew his inspiration. “…We often looked across Table Bay at the magnificent silhouette of Table Mountain… To us on Robben Island, Table Mountain was a beacon of hope…”
It is precisely this, a breathtaking country of inspiration and “beacon of hope” that Roots Africa Tours would like to share with you. From the Blue Flag beaches in the south west to the Kruger National Park in the north east, from World Heritage Sites in the city to Table Mountain and all of its natural splendor as one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature, South Africa is consistently voted to be one of the best tourism destinations in the world.

About the Start

Sharing in the country’s optimism of a brighter future, Roots Africa Tours was started in 1998 with only one small, second-hand passenger vehicle. Yet, within no time its enthusiasm and innovation was noticed by both captains of industry as well as signature 5 Star Hotels.
By the year 2000 Roots Africa Tours was identified as one of the promising emerging tour operators by Cape Town Routes Unlimited, and the flagship Township Tour was showcased at tourism indabas both locally and abroad, from Durban to London and beyond.

About Today

Now, having already successfully hosted and coordinated repeated visits from scores of European parliamentarians to African politicians, from celebrity American reality TV series to international sporting teams and their supporters, or simply to help plant trees in the townships, this family run business offers an unimaginably wide variety of services that will guarantee a unique South African experience like none other; still small enough to tailor intimate honeymoon visits, yet big enough to cater for large corporate groups.  After years of consistent growth and remodelling, Roots Africa Tours is still the preferred inbound tour operator, offering guests a selection of guided tours from Cape Town all the way along the Garden Route, or from the Kruger National Park to overland tours to into any of the adjacent countries.
