Thrilling Safari Holidays In South Africa

There is no better way to spend a holiday than seeing, hearing, and smelling  the great wild spaces and extraordinary creatures of South Africa.

Whether you are thinking of one of the major national or provincial parks like the Kruger National Park, or one of the stunning private game reserves or luxury lodges, we can take you there.

And you can choose whether 

  • to be flown in and out, stay in total comfort with fantastic local cooking and be taken by expert guides on game drives and walks;
  • Drive yourself and stay at luxury lodges or comfortable self catering cottages;
  • Join a group of like minded people and share the experience, while making new friends;
  • spend your honeymoon in romantic style, or even get married in the bush;
  • go with your family and give your children the experience of a lifetime;
  • get as close as possible to nature, roughing it on a camping trip.

African wildlife and wildlife holidays are our passion. We grew up with the privilege of having access to the bush and brought our children up to love it as we do. We know the ins and outs of it. And as UK travel agents and members of the Hays Group we also have access to all the best tour operators and reserves at great prices, as well as offering ABTA and ATOL protection.

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.

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. You can visit these on a self drive and self catering basis, join a tour, or go with a safari company and stay in fantastic accommodation on private concessions.

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.
