South African Safari Destinations

Deemed one of the top tourist destinations in the world, there is little that South Africa does not offer. With 9 UNESCO World Heritage sites, eleven official languages and an extraordinary blend of traditions, a South African safari is a unique blend of contrasting habitats, landscapes and cultures. At the very tip of the continent the coastal scenery, majestic mountain ranges, Winelands and cosmopolitan city life offers an Africa-meets-Mediterranean experience. The area is home to a belt of endemic flora, providing a distinctive habitat for wildlife, small mammals, insects and reptiles of the region.

The lush Garden Route follows the east coast of the country along untouched beaches, dense forest, and rolling mountain ranges towards the Eastern Cape, where dense elephant populations roam. Further along the coast, KwaZulu Natal’s tropical climate is the perfect winter getaway, where oceans are warm year-round. Known for its proud Zulu heritage and impressive conservation efforts, the area boasts extraordinary Big 5 encounters. To the north of the country lies the renowned Kruger National Park where landscapes are vast and the bushveld is dry. This is true African safari land where world-class game rangers wait to reveal the secrets of the African bush. With unique accommodation features and activities for honeymooners, families, and solo travellers, a safari in South Africa is an extraordinary journey into the wild.
