A Safari in South Africa is an eclectic trip that can include heading out on safari from a very comfortable safari lodge or camp perhaps in the Kruger, Madikwe or Kwandwe safari locations, after spotting the big five and enjoying evenings around the camp fire exchanging stories you might like to head to Cape Town for a few nights of cosmopolitan dinning, a trip up Table Mountain, a boat trip out to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was held captive, or enjoy a trip along the coast to the many beautiful bays that hold fabulous beaches for picnics and walks. Nearby are botanical gardens, animal sanctuaries, the winelands, and many nature trails to explore and also Cape Point and the Boulders beach penguin colonies.
After enjoying Cape Town and the surrounds there is also the Garden Route with Whale watching, the Outeniqua Choo Tjoe that runs from George to Mossel Bay and the Plettenberg Bay with its sweeping unspoilt golden sand beaches intriguing lagoons and estuaries.
South Africa is popular with those travellers not wanting to take Anti-Malarial tablets as it is possible to safari in malaria free regions. Additionally the Eastern Cape’s Malaria free safari locations are readily accessible either by a short flight from Johannesburg into Madikwe or by an hours car journey from Port Elizabeth.
For a luxury safari in South Africa whether you choose Malaria Free or not, there are exceptional parks in which to safari. There are the Kruger private reserves requiring a short flight from Nelspruit, the Madikwe a few hours flight from Johannesburg or you can travel by car to Addo Elephant Park, Shamwari and Kwandwe which are located at the end of the Garden Route.
Safaris in South Africa are a superb choice for families due to their accessibility and non-malarial options. In combination with Cape Town and the Garden Route or perhaps Mauritius the perfect South African Safari Holiday can be created. South Africa is the ideal choice for those wanting to spend just a few days in the bush without endangering the probability of seeing the big five.
Holidays in South Africa offers an excellent diverse selection of places to visit in combination with a safari. The Kruger National Park is frequently the setting of choice for many South African safaris. However neighbouring the park are a number of private reserves that offer a more private safari experience than that in the Kruger National Park itself.
