Bophelo is an African North Sotho word meaning "LIFE".

The company specializes in inbound tourism and also focuses on local tourism markets.

What makes the company so unique is that we also cater for tourists with disabilities. Our tours are designed for all groups, large and small, and we guarantee a professional, yet very personal service.

All our clients are transported in luxury air-conditioned cars, 4x4 vehicles, minibuses and coaches. We carefully screen all professional tour guides who are registered with SOUTH AFRICA TOURISM, as well as our drivers, who carry the required driver's licences and permits.

Bophelo works closely together with the local community. We do not just show the tourists the major attractions, but we show them South Africa’s culture up close and personal as well. We do this to let the tourists get in touch with the rich South African culture. This way, we give the tourists the opportunity to see the most beautiful hand made African arts & crafts. These arts & crafts are so unique that many tourists can not resist purchasing something from these hard working talented local people. This way, Bophelo Tours and Safaris, and the tourists who enjoy our services, contribute to giving the people in the local community work and a chance for a brighter future.

These are several of the other possibilities we offer to our clients:

  • Day tours in and around South Africa.  

  • Tours to the Pilanesberg National Park

  • Tours to the Kruger National Park.
