This month, we guided Yuki on a 12-day South African adventure. The trip we put together for her was designed specifically with her interests and budget in mind, and she had a blast!
Guesthouse accommodation; surfboard rental; daily surf guide; breakfast, snacks & dinners; airport transfers & all transport in comfortable SUV.
Yuki is from Switzerland, and loves to surf. She loves the outdoors, adventure and nature. She enjoys trying different foods, learning about local culture, and experiencing places that are not well-known.
Wave-riding, waterfall hikes, a private safari drive, zip-lining, a traditional South African braai, sand-boarding, tasting at a gin distillery, waterski park and more.

I stayed with Ruan for a month in Cape Town. I’d never really considered going to South Africa for a surf trip but the waves completely exceeded my expectations and the trip in general was just non stop good times and all round amazing experience.
Ruan and his crew of mates are absolute legends and had really good local knowledge of when and where to get waves.
Over the month we consistently surfed a range of quality waves, starting with a long peeling right hand reef and a few wedgdey beach breaks on the east coast and then some super fun beaches around Capetown.
The real Jewell in the crown and the highlight for me was definitely the west coast, towards the end of our trip we surfed a few solid reef breaks and an absolutely epic A frame beachy in the middle of the dessert with no one but us out.
We also managed to get up to Namibia and score skeleton bay, I won’t even begins to describe how good it was.
All in all the trip ended up being one of the best months of my life filled with plenty of Barrells, beers and biltong!
Thx Tracey and Ruan! Was a blast being your guest, I am really happy about everything you planned for me to make my trip in south africa so unique and priceless. I’m really impressed how passionate you are about showing your guests a good time and how you specifically planned my trip with everything I was up to. Everything was about fun and seeing beautiful, as well as local places. And your food is soo yummy! Your dogs are lovely. I’m gonna miss you all. You made me feel so comfy, can’t thank you enough for the great time I had!
Sick waves. Amazing places. Ruan is an absolute legend and showed us a whole lot more than we could possibly of seen flying solo. Lekker times.
We got treated better than in a 5-star hotel. The breakfast is topclass, the rooms are cleaned every day, and you find yourself in an incredible area with tons of activities to enjoy. Best thing, the hosts! A young couple that travelled around the world, ready to tell you their story on how they quit their job to start their surf business. Giving them the opportunity to enjoy a lifestyle one can only dream of. Cool to hear as only few people are brave enough to pursue dreams like they do.
The hosts are super friendly and we felt very at home. Many thanks for such a great stay! We’ll be back in the future.
Saffa Adventure & Surf Tours specialises in finding you some of the best waves in South Africa. Guiding you to waves you’ve probably never heard of (and neither have the 74 other surfers at your local break), which means you get access to a whole lot of amazing surf in uncrowded lineups.
We offer daily surf guide experiences, surf holidays, and surf accommodation.
Our daily surf guide experiences and surf holidays are fully customizable. Put simply, our goal is to safely deliver you (surfers and bodyboarders) to the South African waves you’ve been dreaming of, while ensuring that your surf travel experience is an unforgettable one.
If you’re looking for a rad surf trip off the beaten path and without the crowds, put South Africa at the top of your list. With uncrowded line-ups, seemingly endless barrels, incredible wildlife, and unforgettable landscapes, South Africa is a surf destination out of the ordinary.
South Africa is world-renowned for its variety of pumping, uncrowded and consistent waves – but, like most other untouched gems of the world, it’s not always easy to find the right wave on the right day. That’s where we come in.
We take the hassle out of planning a surf trip, leaving you to focus on the stoke.
Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie looking to jump into the ocean with Great White Sharks, or a more laid-back, wine-drinking and nature-walking kind of traveller- South Africa has something for everyone.
Tracey and Ruan had me for a short two week trip, which has been planned very carefully and contained everything I was dreaming about. They have a great range of activities you can attend, such as game drives, waterfall hikes, ziplining, sandboarding, diving, wine tasting......More
