South Africa’s wealth of national parks makes it a choice safari destination.

While an abundance of luxury lodges exist across the spectrum of South African safari areas, it is not necessary to fork out to enjoy spectacular wildlife sightings.

This is the classic South African safari experience - the same way locals have been enjoying these precious conservation areas for decades.
A major appeal of opting for a private overland safari is the flexibility of being able to enjoy game drives at your behest. If the safari bug has truly bitten, you can while away the hours exploring the arteries of the park. Alternatively, you can unwind in-camp with a pair of binoculars, spotting wildlife from afar or just quietly absorbing the sounds and smells of the wilderness around you.
