Join New Life Christian Center (NLCC) for an amazing journey to Southern Africa! On this trip, you will experience the culture, the people, and the land that embodies the diversity of Africa.

Destinations on our trip include South Africa, where we will spend time in Cape Town, known as the Mother City; the eclectic city of Johannesburg and the relaxing and refreshing resort of Sun City. We will travel to Zimbabwe where we will spend time at Victoria Falls, the world’s largest waterfall! While in Victoria Falls, you will have the opportunity to experience Zambia and potentially Botswana!

Like our previous trips to South Africa, Europe, Alaska, and Hawaii, this will be a freestyle trip—no set daily touring. You will be able to shop, shop, and shop, along with taking a safari, pamper yourself at a spa, take cultural tours, go on adventure tours, play golf, swim, or just vegetate in your room, by the pool, or elsewhere!

Our 12-day trip will include:

  • Roundtrip transportation between San Antonio and Austin-Bergstrom Airport
  • Roundtrip coach airfare from Austin to Johannesburg
  • Coach class air travel between Cape Town, Johannesburg and Victoria Falls
  • Lodging in Five Star Hotels, to include the Hilton Cape Town, Sandton City Intercontinental Hotel, the Palace of the Lost City at the Sun City Resort, and the historic Victoria Falls Hotel
  • Ground transportation while in South Africa and Zimbabwe
  • Breakfast buffet daily while in South Africa and Zimbabwe
  • Minimum of five buffet dinners
