South Africa

South Africa is one of the most popular safari holiday destinations in Africa.  It is particularly popular amongst families and I often referred to as the world in one country.  It is geographically and culturally one of the most diverse places on earth and Cape Town is one of the most scenically beautiful cities you will ever see.  South Africa also offers great value for money and the quality of accommodation is superb.  The safari lodges and camps tend to cater for those looking for an authentic safari experience without compromising on luxury.  The quality of guiding is excellent and the food competes with the top class establishments of Europe.

South Africa is popular amongst families as it has malaria free Big 5 game reserves that cater for children of all ages.  The lodges has specially designed activities for kids that include bush tracking, bush cooking, arts and crafts, tribal dancing, horse riding and many other fun things to do.

South Africa’s coastline is wild and well protected from development.  There are no big hotels so your beach experience will be fairly private wherever you go. The Indian Ocean waters are clean and warm and the conditions for swimming and surfing are good.  It is also a great place for whale watching and shark cage diving.

South Africa is also close to the island paradise of Mauritius which is another great family destination.

Luxury safari pricing guide

We aim to provide you with your ideal holiday, individually designed just for you and expertly organised. When you book with us you receive this perfectly designed holiday, travel advice and preparation, flawless organisation of the trip, ATOL financial protection and our 25 years’ experience. Because we have excellent confidential rates with lodges and airlines, the price of your holiday will be generally the same as you would pay were you to somehow book all the lodges, transfers and flights yourself.

There is a world of difference between one of our tailormade safaris and most package holidays printed in a brochure. Package holidays are usually designed to be as cheap as possible and of course involve large numbers of people doing the same thing. Our safaris use small, more exclusive and remote camps usually with guests flying in, and often virtually everything is included in the price. The experience is completely different.

Many of these small lodges and camps have broadly similar prices, and it is possible to arrange a superb two week safari for between £4,000 to £7,000 per person ($7,000 – $11,000) season dependant, all inclusive. Realistically it is difficult to reduce that figure, and by including Botswana in peak season, chartering a private plane, disappearing to some magical desert island, or flying at the front of the plane it’s easy to substantially increase that figure!
