South Africa Safaris

South Africa is one of the best known safari destinations in Africa and arguably the best best place on the continent for up close sightings of the Big 5 animals (lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant). South Africa has so many different experiences to add to your holiday and combining a safari with a beach break break, a walking holiday or a city break in Cape Town is really simple with the myriad of private and national game parks available. There are so many reasons why you should choose South Africa for your safari, we have listed just some of our favourite reasons below:
