"The JB trip was great and well planned, conceived, and executed.You created a blend of activities and flavor for the country that was memorable. Please continue to introduce unknowing Americans to South Africa. We were so glad we added Victoria Falls to the agenda. As with all of your plans, the transfers and hotel arrangements and side trips were great. The falls tour was a must and the evening river cruise was a surprise treat" Don and Lynne

"Going to South Africa with you was an absolutely fabulous experience. The trip surpassed my wildest expectations. Each day was a surreal adventure. Thank you, thank you, thank you for an unforgettable time." Jan

"The Jonathan Butler Safari is a bucket list experience! More than just a safari, this trip is a cultural experience highlighting all the uniqueness and beauty of South Africa along with the many challenges and needs of this emerging country. Jonathan shares himself so that you experience South Africa through his native eyes. Everything about this trip is first class, memorable and a once-in-a-lifetime trip that should not to be missed!"
Curt and Candy

This is just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent trip to South Africa. I had no idea that I would be impacted so much as I still dream of being there. All of the arrangements – the accommodations, restaurants, excursions and transportation were first class and reflected your attention to detail. Thanks to you and JB for such an intimate experience." Karen and Nate

"We had a fantastic time and are still talking about the trip every single day. Thank you for coordinating the stay. The accommodations were immaculate and the hippo eating grass on the lawn in the evening...that made it extra special! Please know we enjoyed every single minute. We have learned so much, and we are inspiring others to make the trip. The culture is rich, the land is beautiful, and the people...well, they challenge our spirits to be great, do right, and shine bright." Precious and Fern

"Unbelievable experience, I will never be the same. Our hosts were wonderful and all the tour guides , bus drivers were terrific. The Mount Nelson hotel and Kapama Private Game Reserve were both exquisite. I will always remember this as a trip of a lifetime that you want everyone to experience." Genevia

"I am just speechless. It will take a lot to top this trip. God Bless to all." Marie

"This was our second time to South Africa on the Jonathan Butler Safari. From Cape Town through the Winelands and on Safari this
experience is phenomenal. The food, the wine, the animals and the people are incredible. How Timeless Destinations was able to improve
on the inaugural JB Safari tour amazes us … but they did!!! Everything was first class. This trip NEEDS to be on everyone's bucket list."
Ron and Cathy
Editor's note: Ron and Cathy have now experienced all 3 JB Safari's to date!

After 2 weeks of savoring the memories, what we continue to marvel at is this: On November 4 2011, 27 virtual strangers from all over the world embarked on an adventure - we knew we were in for something special, we just didn't know what..." Alan and Andrea

"Our trip to South Africa together was so meaningful. I came home with an overwhelming feeling of gratitude. What I learned in S.A. will stay with me always... the power of forgiveness, kindness, a connection to our earth that I've never felt so deeply, and how music is so vital and nourishing!!" Beth and Shaina

"I can’t begin to thank you enough for what was BY FAR the best vacation we have ever taken..." John and Sheryl

"Words cannot adequately express how extraordinary the trip was…every moment of it. Jesse cannot stop talking about it." Karen and son Jesse

We can’t begin to tell you how precious you all are, and what an unthinkably wonderful time we had with the group." Susan and Samuel

"We are still reflecting on the trip and enjoying the photos each day... I still feel like I should be pinching myself to make sure it wasn't a dream! Our amazing trip to South Africa with all of you will forever be a special keepsake that we will hold dear to our hearts". Kathy, Jim and Jim Snr

"This is a trip that everyone should take. Jonathan and Barry are awesome hosts. If you only take one trip in your life....take this one!!". Eddie Holmes
  Journey with Jonathan Butler
in South Africa
October 10 - 18, 2016
Hello JB here,

It feels like just yesterday that we were in South Africa on Safari for the 5th Annual "Jonathan Butler  on Safari" tour and what an an amazingly fun time we all had in South Africa... 

To the 2015 group that took the trip with me - I'm sure you'll agree what a special and meaningful trip this was...thank you so much for allowing me to share my country with all of you will now forever be part of our ever growing "JB Safari family" and I will take away very fond memories of the trip shared with all of you.

To you and anyone who has not had the chance to experience this trip...are you ready for our trip number six in 2016?

Besides the great delight I will always have in personally sharing the exquisite beauty of South Africa, it's wildlife and its diverse people it also gives me a deep sense of pride knowing that I will have the opportunity to show you my South Africa, including the place where I was born, and spent time as a young struggling artist during extremely tough times in my country's history.

We are putting together the itinerary for October 2015 and details will sent to all who reserve their spots on the trip. As members of the past trips you know what 's in store and you also know that we always have a few unscheduled trip delights up our sleeve. We are now taking bookings for 2016 so don't delay as space is on a first come first serve basis. Believe me, you don't want to miss out!

Simply complete the reservation form on this website to secure your place in the group for 2016. No deposit required until we confirm your reservations. We require a minimum of 20 guests to confirm the trip.

My only regret as always is that we have to limit the size of the group to 35 guests due to the accommodations and environmental limitations one finds at these private game lodges .

I'm looking forward to an amazingly fun time together, as we discover the sights and sounds that is so unique to Africa.

See you then. God Bless you all!
