Military Tours

South Africa is a country rich in culture and diversity. The triumphs and tragedies of its military history and its people are symbolised by the monuments and battlefields scattered throughout the land. G Tours has created a series of tours which will enable you to experience part of this history. You will visit key naval, army and airforce sites reflecting battles within our country, as well as cross-border skirmishes. While the main focus is on the Western Cape, our experts also conduct guided tours in Kwa-Zulu Natal as well as the Northern and Eastern Cape.

Graham Haywood, MD of G Tours, has served in the South African Airforce. He has also worked for a private defense group and has a working knowledge of military and trade activities in Africa. We will show you:

  • Tailor-made tours of key naval, army and airforce sites
  • Battlefields
  • Shipwrecks and lighthouses
  • Castaway routes
  • Trading routes
  • Military Museums
  • Other Provinces, including KwaZulu Natal, the Eastern cape and the Free State

    Four example tours are available

And on a lighter note we can even dress you in period of military costume and treat you to a special meal reflecting the food of the day!
