Luxury safari South Africa

For those who skipped the introduction. We work with first class exclusive small lodges/camps for an intimate bush experience and work with OPEN JEEPS with experienced LOCAL guides. This will make a huge difference for your safari versus minibus and guide from a big city. You will see so much more wildlife as these guides are in that wildlife area every day and know the habits of the animals. But also the bush experience and wildlife experience from an open jeep is so much more intense! To experience a lion’s vibrato without windows in between, or the bark of a baboon when it spots a predator…To smell the bush and enjoy the breeze in the shadow of the roof of an open jeep is so much more enjoyable and less hot on game drive! its also much easier to make good pictures from an open jeep. At sunset whilst enjoying nature and game drive sundowners in the bush…or afterwards at a log fire before diner enjoying a magical starry African sky!

The distances are enormous and therefore we work with a lot of fly in from bush airstrip to airstrip. ! There are wonderful combinations of the different safari areas in South Africa; Exeter, Kruger, Phinda game reserve, Madikwe etc. but there could also be some amazing combinations with Botswana or the Victoria Falls that are very impressive. Also in South Africa there are beautiful places to be found off the beaten track! Eastern Cape for example! Enjoying cheetahs between beautiful flowering Euphorbia's for example, for an example safari;

Safari South Africa combined with Cape Town wine route, garden route or golf

Cape Town is an incredibly fun city to finish your safari, with a choice of many small-scale boutique hotels (which are not expensive), or luxury one of the Relais & Chateaux in the wine regions and on the coast. Enjoy refined cuisine and a good glass of wine! Many of these hotels also offer massage & beauty treatments. For golf lovers, South Africa is of course also a Valhalla! We are happy to come up with suggestions! A combination of safari and a piece of wine route Franschoek for example or Hermanus (Whale watching) and surroundings or a closure in a beautiful beach location near Plettenberg.

Safari with kids

There are also family units available in South Africa at a number of locations. We are able to advise you which activities are experienced as fun for kids in terms of age - also in terms of length of safari and variety with an option for activities outside safari. So that everyone has a nice trip and the parents don't have to deal with bored with children. In addition to safari, other activities such as mountain biking, quad biking, horseback riding, fishing, tennis, water sports, etc. can also be offered. Many lodges also have a swimming pool at their disposal. We can arrange everything in detail according to your wishes. For an example safari:

Everything is arranged into the smallest detail. All you need to to on location, is enjoy nature, relax and tell your guide/manager how you like to spent your day and they will arrange. Unusually you go on morning and late afternoon game drive and you spent the warm hours around noon in the lodge for lunch and relaxation. however full day game drives are also possible on many locations, where you go with packed lunch. It is nice to relax in the lodge when it gets hot, but its can also be rewarding to go out over the hottest time of the day to see species that will usually only hunt during the hottest hours- like for instance the cheetah.
