Thrilling Safari Holiday Options In South Africa

South Africa offers an incredible range of outstanding safari options.

Whether you want to do a day trip from Johannesburg, Pretoria or Durban, a few days linked to a visit to Cape Town or the Garden Route, a Safari and Beach Holiday combination or a dedicated couple of weeks in the bush, there are great options for every plan.

You can choose to go to the arid western side of the country for beautiful semi-desert landscapes and eco-systems or to the wetter east for denser and more varied bush.

You can choose whether being in a malaria free area is important to you or not.

You can:

  • fly in and out and stay in some of the best lodges in the world, enjoying top quality service, luxury and cuisine and having the benefit of highly trained guides who will introduce you to all aspects of the ecosystems that you are visiting;  they will ensure that you see as many as possible of the animals and birds that interest you
  • drive through the area yourself and stay at the same lodges
  • join a group of like-minded people and enjoy the experience together
  • do a self-drive, self-catering holiday in comfortable chalets
  • rough it in a camping holiday

If you are thinking about joining a tour we have a fantastic tool that allows you to choose from thousands of top quality tours anywhere in the world. Just click on the link below to find the perfect tour for you.

In every part of South Africa there are outstanding national and provincial parks, such as the Kruger National Park, that do a fantastic job of wildlife conservation and offer excellent tourist facilities. 

Or, for a more luxurious, more exclusive experience, you can go to any one of dozens of private reserves, also available all round the country and offering fantastic and widely differing experiences.

Whichever option we plan for you, you can rest assured that the wonderful experience that you enjoy will also make an incredibly important contribution to the conservation of the wilderness areas and the wild creatures that you see, and to the welfare of the neighbouring communities.

These places can and will only survive if they generate income from tourism to fund conservation and support local communities. So by having the holiday of your lifetime you are also protecting the future of extraordinary places.
