South Africa - Luxury Safaris

Starry nights in luxury safari lodges, parkland safaris, coastal drives, desert treks, and hillside hikes – incredible wildlife you’ve only ever seen pictures of. South Africa is an all-encompassing natural wonder of epic proportions. The diversity, the poignant history, and the natural beauty yield a profusion of profound, life-changing experiences to all who visit. When you get to know the land, the sky, the roots of South Africa, you’ll wonder what took you so long.

Luxury Southern African safaris don’t get much more impressive than in beautiful South Africa itself. Game viewing here throughout private nature reserves will generate dozens of moments of natural beauty so magical you will think you are indeed dreaming.

You will have positively no trouble running into the Big Five in

the enormous Kruger National Park, established in 1898. This is one of the most popular safari destinations in Africa, as well as one of the world’s biggest – almost 8,000 square miles. The dramatic and exhilarating safaris at Sabi Sands Game Reserve within Kruger set the stage for leopards, lions, and elephants, along with upscale lodging.

Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Park just north of Durban is the oldest in Africa, sporting spectacular sightings of the Big Five. And at Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

in the Kalahari Desert, trekkers will encounter herds of various species of antelope and blue wildebeest, plus prides of black-mane lions.

Some of the best elephant-viewing in the world can be found at Addo Elephant Park, with more than 600 African elephants to commune with, as well as black rhinos, antelopes, and buffalos.

And when you return from the pleasures of the luxurious safari lodges, your South Africa safari travel experience absolutely must include spending time in beautiful Cape Town, ringed by the majestic Table Mountains.
