    Wendy Wu Tours has added three new international destinations to its travel roster, inviting Australian travellers to explore South Africa, Saudi Arabia and Colombia with the operator in 2024 and 2025.

    “Over the years, I have lost count of the number of times I have been asked if we organise tours outside of Asia,” shared company founder Wendy Wu, “And the answer is, we absolutely do.”

    Here is an overview of the three new additions:

    Kruger to Cape Explored

    Wendy Wu Tours new Kruger to Cape Explored is a 15 day ’Go Beyond’ style itinerary designed to show the diversity of this destination. The tour travels from Johannesburg, takes in the Panorama Route and features a three night stay in Greater Kruger National Park, before continuing to Gqeberha, Knysna, and finishing with a four night stay in Cape Town. Highlights include journeying into the wilderness to spot the big five in their natural habitat, wine tasting in some of the country’s best vineyards, venturing underground to experience the limestone labyrinth that is the Cango Caves, and getting up close with South Africa’s other favourite animals – the penguins of Boulders Beach. The tour is priced from $12,590 per person twin share.
