Top Safari Destinations

Few other safari destinations compare with those listed below in terms of variety of wildlife, extraordinary landscapes, and a primordial sense of man's dependence on nature.

Kruger National Park

Kruger offers a larger diversity of animal species than any of Africa's other national Parks. Available safaris range from basic but comfortable to ultra-luxurious.

Okavango Delta

The Okavango is an oasis in the vast expanse of the Kalahari that attracts seasonal migration of large herds to its crystal clear waters. Unique, beautiful, and awe-inspiring.

Sabi Sand Private Reserve

South Africa's oldest and most revered private game reserve is home to some of the most luxurious lodges in Africa. It forms part of Greater Kruger and is the best place to view leopards in the wild.

Etosha National Park

Incredible game concentrations in an arid land are what you can expect when visiting Etosha. Excellent photographic opportunities and amazing animal sightings are commonplace.

Chobe National Park

In the north of a country where a large part of the land is devoted to conservation, Chobe is renowned for its great elephant and buffalo herds and the rich birdlife along its river banks.

Madikwe Game Reserve

For the ultimate malaria-free Big Five family safari, Madikwe is a great option. The reserve in the northwest of South Africa offers exceptional game viewing and a range of lodge choices.

Memorable Experiences

The Big 5 arguably inspire the most awe amongst Africa's myriad wildlife, but there is much more to encounter. You could meet thousands of Cape fur seals at Cape Cross, marvel at choruses of birds across the continent, and view hippos and crocodiles in Africa's waterways. Get up close with the formidable great white shark, walk side by side with the world's fastest land mammal, and wonder at the abundance in this corner of the world.

The Journey

From the planning stages to your departure from Africa, you are in the care of an experienced team who will make your journey a hassle-free and enriching experience. In the case of a fly-in safari package, we offer expert advice and manage the logistics of your trip. If you book a private overland safari in South Africa or Namibia, one of our expert guides accompanies the adventure.

We just returned from the third trip planned by African Sky Safaris & Tours, which we postponed four years due to health and then COVID, which required them to rework the itinerary each year. This trip took us to two safari camps in Botswana and two safari camps in South Africa. The camps were all 5-star, the guides were outstanding, and all the planning was perfect. This time we saw several cheetahs in both countries for the first time and, for the first time, a pack of wild dogs playing in the grass. Our guides knew the area and also worked to find the white lions of South Africa and the black rhinos. We highly recommend African Sky Safaris and Tours.
