So, please join us on an epic Mervis trip to magnificent South Africa - the land of diamonds – and marvel at the incredible sights.

We’ll explore Cape Town, considered as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Then after a few days soaking up the sights, sounds, food, and fantastic wines, we’ll move on to Safari. You’ll be delighted to meet Africa’s Big Five. Get up close to the lions , leopards, rhinos , elephants, and buffaloes from the safety of your Safari vehicle. This Safari is a once in a lifetime experience. You will never forget it.

My husband and I have had the pleasure of traveling on several Mervis Diamond safaris over the years, each one leaving us with unforgettable memories. Our accommodations have always been top-notch, with luxurious hotels located on or near waterfront and easy access to fantastic dining and shopping experiences. A favorite memory (though there are MANY!) was traveling along the coast to Cape Point, where we had the opportunity to visit African penguins and enjoy a delicious lunch. And of course, the safari experience was unforgettable. Each time we were able to see so many different animals and left with new friends, great memories and tons of photos.

We've hosted Mervis Safari trips since 2009. Here's what past attendees have said:

Our 2020 safari trip to South Africa with Mervis was the experience of a lifetime and something we will never forget. The breathtaking scenery of Cape Town is unlike any other city, with spectacular beaches framed in a mountain backdrop all visible in one amazing panoramic vista at the end of a cable car ride up Table Mountain.  Our ferry boat excursion to learn the history of Robben Island, the bus ride to see Cape Point followed by penguins at Boulder Beach and then a visit to nearby wine country rounded out a few days of amazing sightseeing prior to heading to Johannesburg.  Our safari in Pilanesberg National Park was action packed with guided jeep tours that put is up close to the wildlife and feeling like part of the park staff.  We recommend a pre-dawn jeep tour to observe the wildlife activity before sunrise and/or a hot air balloon ride to capture it all from above. One or the most enjoyable parts of our trip as making new friends amongst our tour group and spending time with Ronnie in his native country…truly a great time!

I have made the Mervis Diamond South Africa Safari Trip three times beginning in 2012, 2018 and 2019. Why three times? First was the excitement of visiting a country on the other side of the world particularly South Africa knowing its struggle in removing apartheid.  I want to actually see South Africa and visit the prison on Roberson Island and learn firsthand the history of Mandela and the other great black African leaders fighting for black freedom from under the rule of apartheid and the sacrifice they all made to finally be equal to all.

I found South Africa to be a beautiful and friendly country. Mervis Diamond provided the best first-class accommodation, tour, and safari I ever could have imagined.  Each morning waking up seeing the view of the waterfront and settling in for the breakfast buffet you just had to pinch yourself.

The drive through the countryside of South Africa was more than a picture could represent and our tour guide was knowledgeable with history and short stories not found in history book.

The actual safaris are something you have to experience. You have this up-close view of elephants, lions, cubs, hyenas, monkeys, giraffe, hippos and more in their natural settings.

The dining throughout the trip was like eating at a five restaurant every day. I just can't describe everything I want to about the Mervis Diamond Safari South African Tour.  It's why I have gone again and again and on my way for the fourth time.  This will be my wife's third trip and she is more excited this time than her first or second trip.

Lastly, the Ronnie Mervis has provided this opportunity at a price that is unbelievable for what you receive.  All of my trips to South Africa, both Ronnie and his wife were on the tour.  They are a beautiful and sharing couple you will always remember.

Don't hesitate on this trip. The experience, memories and friendships you make on this trip are forever.
