Gay Group Vacations in South Africa

Home to a collection of the world’s most awe-inspiring natural environments, fabulous cities, miles of rugged coastline, and thriving gay nightlife scenes in its larger cities, it’s no surprise that South Africa is one of our most popular destinations for gay group trips. South Africa’s natural beauty combined with an increasing acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community means the country offers the perfect gay group travel adventure.

Here at Out Of Office, we truly understand the world you live in, and the world you want to explore. Our attention to detail, exceptional service and deep understanding of both luxury travel and LGBTQ+ travel make us a fantastic choice for those looking for a travel experience where exclusivity meets inclusivity.

We recommend

For gay travelers craving a sun-soaked adventure jam-packed with unforgettable excursions and luxury accommodations, you can’t do much better than glorious South Africa. The country’s history is complex, and at times turbulent, and in addition to an array of historical sites of interest, South Africa is a wonderland of awe-inspiring natural landscapes, ranging from cloud-touching mountain ranges to savannah sprawls teeming with wildlife.

From the lively streets of Cape Town to the contemporary skyscrapers of Johannesburg, South Africa’s larger cities are littered with LGBTQ+ hotspots and welcome a steady stream of gay travelers throughout the year. Regardless of whether your ideal gay group trip is an active or relaxed affair, there’s something in South Africa for everyone. With the perfect climate, beautiful game reserves, and five-star boutique hotels, South Africa is a gay travel destination you won't want to miss.

Whilst parts of the society in South Africa remain socially conservative the country’s cities, Cape Town in particular, offer safe refuge for LGBTQ+ people from across the wider continental region. As such, the gay scene here is as diverse and inclusive as they get. South Africa truly is a melting pot of culture, and its gay nightlife scene is no different. The beauty of a South African gay group trip lies partly in its luxury accommodation offerings, which rank amongst the world’s most sumptuously exclusive.

At Out Of Office, we specialize in combining inclusive service with exclusive travel experiences, but you can find non-LGBTQ+ specific information on travel in South Africa by visiting our South Africa destination page.

Boulders Beach

Boulders Beach, located on the Cape Peninsula, is a stunning destination that offers visitors the chance to witness African penguins in their natural habitat. With its soft white sand, towering boulders, and crystal-clear waters, the beach provides a serene atmosphere that is perfect for a leisurely stroll or a refreshing swim. Visitors can also walk along wooden boardwalks that wind through the colony, providing an up-close and personal experience with these adorable birds. Watch as they waddle, preen, and interact with each other just a few feet away from you. Boulders Beach is truly a must-visit destination for anyone looking to experience the beauty of African penguins.

The Apartheid Museum

The Apartheid Museum, which opened its doors in 2001, is a powerful testament to South Africa’s history and its journey towards democracy. As visitors enter the museum, they are immediately transported back to the apartheid era through a moving exhibit that assigns them a racial classification, highlighting the arbitrary and unjust nature of apartheid’s racial divisions. The museum serves as a poignant reminder of the country’s past struggles and the resilience of its people. Through its exhibits, the museum provides a detailed account of the origins of apartheid, the oppressive laws that were put in place, and the courageous individuals who fought against it. The museum also pays tribute to those who suffered under apartheid and celebrates the triumphs of the freedom and equality movements.

Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park is a vast expanse of natural beauty covering 7,500 square miles in South Africa. It is home to a diverse range of wildlife and landscapes, including dense bushveld, open savannah, and riverine forests. Visitors to the park can witness the “Big Five” – lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, and Cape buffalo – as well as a plethora of other animals, such as cheetahs, giraffes, and over 500 species of birds. But Kruger is more than just a wildlife destination – it also offers a glimpse into the region’s rich cultural and historical heritage, with ancient rock art and archaeological sites that tell the story of the people who have lived in the area for thousands of years.
