We highly recommend South Africa as a safari destination. Not only is it home to Southern Africa's most diverse wilderness area - the Kruger National Park - but there are also a wealth of alternative safari destinations to choose from.
The most popular South African safari areas include the Kruger National Park and the private game reserves which form part of it, like the Sabi Sand and the Timbavati. The Eastern Cape also offers exceptional safaris at both the Addo Elephant National Park and Shamwari Private Game Reserve. The densely wooded Zululand can be experienced on safaris in Hluhluwe and Phinda. The malaria-free areas of northern South Africa, like Madikwe and Welgevonden, have also become increasingly popular safari destinations in recent years.
South Africa's safari diversity extends to variety of budgets that the country's national parks and private game reserves are able to cater to as well. We offer standard South Africa safaris (both overland and fly-in four star) as well as luxury and exclusive South African safari packages. From basic yet comfortable and authentic to the absolute zenith of a five star safari experience, you'll find yourself spoiled for choice.
Honeymoon safaris in South Africa are also quite popular, due to the fantastic value for money and the favorable exchange rate (which is you would not be able to take advantage of when traveling to the safari areas of Botswana, Zambia or Zimbabwe). We also recommend South Africa as the ultimate family safari destination, due to the prevalence of malaria-free wilderness areas and numerous safari lodges that cater specially to young wildlife enthusiasts.
