Elephants by the artist FALKO, a South African street art pioneer

South Africa is one of the best destinations to consider scratching off your Bucket List for less considering our, well, lesser loonie, right now. According to travel experts, you'll get more for your Canadian buck.

But, before the safari, experience Cape Town and Johannesburg. Get to know the culture, the people and the food, through the eyes of locals. Everyone speaks English, but there is also Afrikaans, Zulu, Swazi and more of the 11 official languages spoken here. But Africa is still a wild and complex destination, and it makes sense to consult with an expert when planning this once-in-a-lifetime trip. Guides, tours, getting to and from the airport and more can – and should – be taken care of before you go. Remember, it's a long flight, and you don't want your thinking clouded by jetlag.

We asked Mary Jean Tully and Judi Cohen, the experts at the Canadian based Tully Luxury Travel and its African Dreams and Private Travel Design divisions to give us the insider's guide to South Africa.

Click through below for part two of our conversations with the experts at Tully Luxury Travel and highlights of my day tour of Johannesburg, including some of the most impressive street art I have ever seen. Fun fact: Johannesburg is surrounded in miles of man-made forest, making it one of the greenest cities on the continent.
