Experience Safari Holidays in South Africa

Pin It

If you’re looking for adventure, then we strongly recommend South Africa.


South Africa is nature’s home. It boasts incredible places that are not jam packed with tourists. It is a country where you can enjoy truly spectacular scenery and reconnect with nature, experiencing the freedom of miles of breathtaking landscape. There is traditional cuisine, a vibrant culture, dramatic wildlife, and you can even camp under stars on the Savannah!


A Big Five Safari

Possibly the most exciting adventures of all are safari holidays and in South Africa safaris are very special indeed! Here is where you’ll meet the big 5 up close; the sight of a majestic pride of lions in their natural habitat will leave you breathless. You’ll see elephants, leopards, rhinos and water buffalo while you go tracking in the Savannah.

The best way to do this is by joining a small group tour, and there are many exciting ones available. These tours are highly recommended because they are led by expert guides, who will stay with you throughout your trip. A tour in South Africa would never be complete without spotting the wonderful animals and with the help and expertise of your guides you will be completely satisfied.


Travelling in a small group of like-mended people has many advantages, but not least that because it is a small group you’ll have plenty of opportunity to enjoy quiet moments that make it possible to connect with nature in a meaningful way. For those of you looking for adventure holidays for singles these safaris are the perfect choice.

Garden Route South Africa

Here’s a great example of another type of holiday: the less well-known Garden Route tour. It makes a great family adventure holiday, and this very scenic route will leave you with some wonderful memories. It is a part of the coast that runs from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to the Storms River in Eastern Cape.
