South Africa ·July 10 - 23 2024
In a class by itself, this excursion traverses safari, the international cannabis industry, and history!BOOK NOW
The African continent has a very big opportunity to contribute to cannabis innovations, not only in medicine, but through other sectors such as paper production, eco bricks, and plastics. At Seaux and Reap, we believe in informed consumption and carefully curated experiences that empower our guests to advocate for Cannabis Justice. This excursion is no different! We've collaborated with locals to curate a 9-day excursion encompassing Johannesburg, Durban, and Cape Town! A part of the vision of our collaborators is to have the sons and daughters of the Diaspora tell its story. Together, our carefully curated culturally relevant trips offer an alternative and increasingly popular form of travel. This trip is for the Cannacurious, the Cannaisseur, and all allies of the CannaFamily! Though Informed Consumption is our specialty, consumption is not a requirement to join this excursion. This is truly the penultimate South African experience! Educate yourself in South Africa! This excursion is for you if: - you love multicultural experiences, where lots of different people come together in one melting pot. South Africa has 11 national languages and 3 capital cities! - you have an appreciation for history and anthropology. South Africa has sites with some of the earliest human fossils and is in its post-apartheid era, - you love to be by the ocean, while still experiencing city life, or - you are interested in experiencing many groups of people that are fiercely protective and tied to their traditional cultures.

Tipping 10-15% at restaurants in South Africa is common practice. If you’re at a bar, people usually leave any small change from the bill for the bartender.
South Africa boasts some of the cleanest tap water in the world. It’s perfectly safe to drink right from the tap, so you don’t have to worry about buying bottles of water during your trip. Be sure to bring along a reusable water bottle and fill it up throughout the day!
South Africa is an incredible destination for adventurous travelers. You can jump off the highest commercial bungee in the world, go on epic multi-day hikes through the Drakensberg or paraglide off Lion’s Head in Cape Town. If you’re planning on getting your adrenaline fix during your trip, make sure your travel insurance covers you for extreme sports activities! You’ll also need general comprehensive travel insurance. With South Africa being such a far country to travel to for most people, it’s a good idea to make sure you’re covered for any flight cancellations and unplanned for trips to the hospital.
As soon as your flight to South Africa lands and you’ve collected your luggage, buy a Vodacom sim card from one of the vendors inside the airport. You can get data bundles that will help you stay connected as well as airtime for any phone calls you need to make.
While credit cards are widely accepted in South Africa, you’ll still need to cash throughout your trip. I recommend withdrawing cash from the ATM when you arrive. You’ll get a better exchange rate from the machines than by using a currency exchange service at the airport. If you’re traveling to Cape Town and are using a local sim card (aka have a local number) download the app Snapscan. It’s an app that connects to your credit cards so you can tap to pay at different shops and vendors with a QR code. Tons of restaurants and shops use it for quick one-step credit card payments.
We prefer that guests book their own flights to and from the destination airport.
This can be done by Seaux & Reap team members for an additional fee. Please select the “Book Flight” Add-on option at checkout.
Please review the terms & conditions here.
We encourage all guests, especially on INTERNATIONAL travel excursions, to purchase a Travel Insurance policy. In the past, we have utilized Allianz Travel Insurance.

Malaria is present in some regions of South Africa. Use mosquito repellents, netting and antimalarials if you are traveling to these areas.
Medical facilities are common and in good condition in urban areas and near game parks. But, facilities are limited in rural areas. Most facilities only accept cash payments before a procedure is done. Medicare does not cover these expenses.
A visa is not required for US citizens visiting for less than 90 days. You will still need a valid passport and possibly proof of yellow fever immunization.
