South Africa: Safari Activity Holiday
A World in One Country
Safari holiday in South Africa
Looking for the Big Five? Whether it's a mobile-tented camping safari, an overland safari, a budget safari, a self-drive safari, or a luxury fly-in safari, South Africa guarantee’s all bush lovers with a once in a life time safari experience. Safaris are definitely what South Africa does best. With a good mix of both luxury lodges and budget self-catering family-style camps, South Africa is great for both travellers on a budget or those looking for a more extravagant safari holiday. Most South African safari’s offer a wide range of game viewing and outdoor activities including horse riding, guided walking, hiking, 4x4 trails and picnic areas for day visitors.
Sabi Sand private reserve alongside the Kruger Park is the region where you have the greatest chance of spotting all the Big Five, but remember, in the wild, nothing can be guaranteed. If you were planning to fit a safari into your itinerary and weren’t looking to pay extra for a plane ride, Addo Elephant National Park, situated 72km from Port Elizabeth, is ideal for visitors touring the Garden Route. Established in 1931 to save 11 Elephants on the brink of extinction, the park is now the third largest in South Africa and is home to more than 350 elephants, 280 Cape Buffalo, black Rhino, Lion, and a range of Antelope species - perfect for the adventurous outdoor and nature lover.
