Elephant On The African SavannaAfrica is a continent of epic romance. From sweeping plains that stretch into the horizon to vast deserts, huge canyons and tropical beaches, Africa is rich with beauty. And then there’s the wildlife. Nowhere else in the world can you see elephants gathering around a waterhole at sunset, lion cubs playing in the savannah and wildebeest migrating in their thousands across the plains. It is a magically diverse and totally addictive place.

The Latest News From Our Blog

Why we Recommend Travel Insurance
Insurance is always a bit of a grey area and a lot of people resent having to pay for it, but you are just programmed or conditioned by society and your upbringing to do so. You tend to accept that you have to fork out for home insurance and contents insurance, even though relatively very few people over the course of their home ownership make a claim. Read more...

Love is in the Air
With Valentine's Day fast approaching, it got us thinking about the romance that Africa can offer you. Here is our shortlist: Proposing on the top of Table Mountain - One of the most iconic destinations in Africa, if you want your proposal to be memorable then going down on one knee here will not fail to disappoint - and hopefully elicit the answer 'yes' from your bride-to-be! Little Kulala - with the desert and towering red sand dunes as your vista, your private thatched 'kulala' (the word means 'to sleep') offers not only stunning accommodation but also a private plunge pool, indoor and outdoor showers and a rooftop star bed for romantic star gazing.

South Africa Relax Yellow Fever Vaccination Requirements

On Saturday, following the World Health Assembly on Friday in Geneva, the South African Department of Health agreed to lift the yellow fever vaccination requirement for travellers entering South Africa from Zambia. The new ruling was effective immediately. Read more...

Luggage Allowance
If you are like me, I never really give any major thought to my hand luggage when packing for a trip. I throw my Kindle, my purse, some mints and a lipstick in a bag, hoist it onto my shoulder, and walk onto the aircraft. Read more...

Cape Town

Cape Town Waterfront And Table MountainWithout a doubt, Cape Town

is one of the world’s most beautiful cities, from the splendour of Table Mountain to the white sandy beaches of the Cape Peninsula, and the lively atmosphere of the V&A Waterfront.

There’s so much to see and do in Cape Town, from poignant boat trips to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned to open air concerts in the stunning Kirstenbosch National Gardens and, of course, the cable car to the top of Table Mountain.

It’s not only a must for first-time visitors to South Africa, but a captivating city that many people fall hopelessly in love with, returning time and again.

Kruger National Park

Game Watching In The Kruger National Park

The private game reserves and lodges of the Greater Kruger Park offer some of the best Big 5 game viewing in all of Africa. You’ll take guided safaris through the bush to track lions and leopards as the sun sets, stopping for a atmospheric sundowner on the plains. You’ll also set off on dawn safaris in search of big cats, elephants and giraffes gathering around waterholes in the cool of the morning. Between these safaris you can relax by the lodge pool, soaking up the African sun before your next wildlife adventure. Bliss!

We have personal knowledge of all of the Kruger lodges and reserves that we offer, so we’ll help you pick the perfect one for your South Africa holiday.

Choosing Your Safari

Cheetah On The LookoutIf seeing the wildlife is the main reason for your trip to Africa, it may be better to start planning your trip based on the type of experience you want rather than with a fixed idea on which country to visit.

We would recommend different  places depending on the time of year you are travelling, what you want to see, if you have children with you, and of course your budget and the type of lodge that you prefer.
