15 Day Surf Tour from Johannesburg to Mozambique

GROUP TOUR

JOHANNESBURG > MALELANE > KRUGER NATIONAL PARK > CHIDENGUELE > TOFO > MAPUTO > JOHANNESBURG

If you can imagine yourself traveling in Africa, staying in bungalows by the sea, enjoying meals with local residents and surfing at some incredible beaches, this is for you.

 

On this tour we will travel from Johannesburg to the Kruger National Park and then to Mozambique and back. With a registered surf coach at hand, this is the road trip that will give you that feeling of living a carefree surfer lifestyle while you learn to ride the waves (or perfect your skills) in breathtakingly beautiful surroundings. 

 

In addition to surfing at every opportunity, we'll also spend some time exploring the Kruger National Park, take a kayak to visit a local fishing village for lunch, spot some marine life on a boat safari, snorkel with whale sharks, visit a botanical garden and unwind with some evening yoga on the beach.
