South Africa

When it comes to sheer diversity, South Africa is difficult to beat. The world-famous Kruger National Park covers an astounding 20,000 km2 which can be explored on foot as well as by vehicle-based safaris and tours. Kruger is home to 150 mammals, including the Big Five, and no less than 500 bird species.

Sabi Sands Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger region offers the best chance in the country to capture leopard on film.  While Madikwe Game Reserve is known for its population of extremely rare African Wild Dogs, and Addo Elephant National Park for its 600 elephants, 400 Cape buffalo, and 50 black rhino.

In addition to the Rainbow Nation’s seemingly endless wildlife opportunities, South Africa boasts almost 3,000 km of dramatic coastline. Divided between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, it’s home to breaching great white sharks, humpback whales and idyllic tropical beaches.

Then there’s the chance for hiking among the snow-capped Drakensberg Mountains.  White water rafting among the hippos and crocodiles of the Orange River.  And, the stunning landscapes of Blyde River Canyon.  Plus the famed silhouette of Table Mountain sitting benevolently above Cape Town.  An intriguing, if not heartbreaking, modern history that can be explored on Robben Island, Nelson Mandela’s prison for almost twenty years.


2-3 Star Accommodation

Our 2 to 3 star accommodated safaris and tours use comfortable accommodation that is booked on a twin share basis. The majority of rooms have en-suite bathrooms and very occasionally they will have shared ablutions. All linen and bedding is provided.

3-4 Star Accommodation

Our 3 to 4 star accommodated safaris and tours use a variety of  value-for-money accommodation.  Accommodation varies from chalets, bungalows, traditional huts, permanent tents and hotels, all with private en-suite facilities and comfortable beds to ensure you’re re-charged and ready to go for the following days adventure!

Adventure Camping

Adventure camping requires participation. Your guide and assistant do all the meal preparation, however, we ask guests to help (on rotation) with the washing up.  You will also need to assist with putting up your tent and packing the vehicle.  There are some long travel days which means early morning starts, so we all need to get involved to make the day run efficiently.

Family Safaris in Africa

When it comes to a family holiday, an African safari is an enriching and exciting experience. As a company, we recommend your children are at least 10 years old so that everyone can enjoy and get the most out of this amazing experience. Most family-friendly camps/lodges have family tents/rooms, meaning you can all be under the same roof.  Child rates are often applicable but does depend on the age of your children.

Fully Assisted Camping (non en-suite)

Fully Assisted Camping (non-ensuite) means you will not have to lift a finger as we take care of all camping chores: cooking, cleaning, pitching and packing tents.  You have a 3-man crew of experienced safari staff (including a cook) who are dedicated to making your trip memorable and rewarding.
