Go Wild for African Safari Travel Packages

Back to Home
South Africa: the country at the bottom of the continent with legendary scenic wonders that is quickly becoming one of Africa’s top tourist destinations. Nowhere in Africa will you find such a rich variety of wildlife and natural beauty. Whether you are looking for an action packed tour or a specialized safari, African safari travel packages have something for everyone.

 

Habitats range from mountain, marshland and coastal plains to bushveld, savannah, arid desert and luscious green forests. Observe the huge variety of African wildlife and scenery from close proximity with African safari travel packages. Consider some of the most popular types of safaris.

 

Elephant Safari

 

Adventure in style by experiencing a once in a lifetime opportunity to ride six-feet in the air perched on the back of a six-tonne elephant through the open velds and dense forests of the South African savannah. Game viewing on the back of an elephant provides the unique opportunity of getting really close to wildlife like giraffes and rhinos that can otherwise only be viewed from afar. For this type of safari, the elephants are comfortably saddled and have experienced elephant handlers. Interacting with a powerful creature like an elephant and being immensely immersed in nature at the same time is an opportunity like no other.

 

Game Drives


One of the fastest and most popular ways to see South Africa’s wildlife is in an open vehicle accompanied by an experienced guide. On a drive you can cover a large distance in a short amount of time and observe animals in their natural habitat from the safety of your car. Many animals are not threatened by vehicles which allows for close encounters.

 

The "Big Five” are the most sought out animals by safari goers and include the following:

  • Elephants
  • Rhinos
  • Buffalos
  • Lions
  • Leopards

 

Starting at the Kapama River Lodge, game drives include several safari drives over an eight-day period. The drive will take you through Greater Kruger National Park, which is world-renowned for its superb game-viewing. Veteran trackers and guides guarantee up close and personal encounters with Africa’s best wildlife while sharing their deep knowledge of this part of the African bush.

 

Blyde River Canyon


Not a safari in the traditional sense, Blyde River Canyon’s proximity to Kruger National Park is not to be missed. The fresh mountain scenery and magnificent panoramic views over the Klein Drakensberg escarpment are exceptional to give this area its name "Panorama Route.” Stretching 25 kilometers, the Blyde River Canyon is the third largest canyon in the world boasting stunning rock formations most famously known for the Three Sisters.


Viewpoints are named for the spectacular sights they offer— God’s Window and Wonder View only hint at the magnitude of the scenery. All five of South Africa's primates can be found in this region; the rare samango monkey, nocturnal greater and lesser bushbabies, chacma baboons and vervet monkeys.
