Highlights

  • Search for the Big 5 gathering at waterholes during the early hours of the morning in the Kruger National Park.
  • Explore the massive, untouched wilderness of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and catch a glimpse of rare wildlife such as the oryx, aardwolf, hyena and Kalahari lions while on fascinating game drives.
  • Follow the legendary Garden Route for an intimate encounter with wildlife at the private game reserve of Cango Wildlife Ranch.
  • Watch herds of elephants socialize at the Addo Elephant National Park and discover the treasures of the Tsitsikamma National Park forests.
  • Ride an ostrich at an ostrich farm in Oudtshoorn or go surfing and sailing at the pretty seaside town of Hermanus.
  • Visit the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Center for heart-warming encounters with abandoned and rehabilitated wildlife.
  • Climb to the top of the Table Mountain, set sail for the historic Robben Island, or cage dive with great white sharks.
  • Go on a unique cultural safari through South Africa, admire the beautiful Bushman rock paintings and learn of the Rainbow Nation importance at the Soweto Township of Johannesburg.

Tips

  • Carry a waterproof bag for camera equipment as it will also keep out sand and dust.
  • When it comes to accommodation you have the option of basic rustic tents, luxury tented camps and tree top lodging.
  • Wear long-sleeved shirts on game drives as these offer protection against mosquitoes and the sun.
  • Pack sweaters or jackets as the weather can get cold early in the morning or towards late afternoon.
  • Wear neutral colours such as olive green, beige and khaki so you’ll blend in with the surroundings.
  • Your guide will let you know when it’s safe to exit the safari jeep or vehicle. Follow all instructions to stay safe.
  • Keep seated and avoid talking too loudly especially when you’re close to animals.
  • Avoid smoking while on safari as the bush is very dry and embers can start fires.
