A safari in South Africa is one of the most sought-after nature experiences. South Africa’s ‘Big Five’ to be seen are elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards and buffaloes. Most game reserve are open to self-drive visitors. But we also offer guided game drives with qualified guides in 4×4 vehicles. An early morning or night guided game drive offers the chance to see animals when the park gates might still be closed to the general public.
From gentle 30-minute strolls to the tough 5-day Otter Trail, it is easy to see more of South Africa on foot.

For more serious hikers, we arrange guided hiking excursions, including gear and accommodation. You will need to bring sturdy hiking boots and a small day-pack.
Sometimes it is just easier to let someone else do the driving… Join a day trip! We offer guided tours in all the major cities: Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.

Day trips can vary from a few hours to a full day.
