Africa is blessed with a great many fantastic safari destinations, but the five below are the most common in the safari packages we design. 

KRUGER PARK

The Kruger Park is the most popular wildlife reserve in Africa with more animal species than any other locations, more than 140 large mammal species and over 500 bird species. 

If tit's your first time on an African safari then we recommend the Kruger Park as your wildlife destination of choice, with 4-5 nights the average time spent on safari.

CAPE TOWN WATERFRONT

Located at the southern most tip of Africa in South Africa, Cape Town is frequently voted the #1 city on earth to visit. 

Fondly referred to as the "Mother City" Cape Town is typically the first destination on an African safari package. 

Boasting some of the finest wineries, restaurants and coastlines in the world, it's easy to see why Cape Town is such a popular destination. The recommended stay in Cape Town is 3-4 nights if you include the winelands of Franschhoek. 

VICTORIA FALLS

The Victoria Falls is located on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe and is home to the world's largest waterfall. 

This UNESCO world heritage site is more than just an epic waterfall however, it is also an adventure seekers playground with white water rafting, bungee jumping, zip lining, canopy tours, tiger fishing and river cruises to keep you entertained. 

Additionally you can enjoy a rhino safari experience in the neighbouring game reserve. 

OKAVANGO DELTA

If you're looking for the best luxury safari destination in Africa, it's tough to beat the Okavango Delta. 

This remote destination provides the perfect setting for a unique African safari on the waterways of the Okavango Delta, another UNESCO world heritage site. 

 

Here you'll find luxury safari lodges sprinkled along the banks of the Delta with the surrounds teeming with animals and bird life. 

SEYCHELLES

When you picture azure blue waters and white sandy beaches with tropical tress and drinks with little umbrellas, you're more than likely picturing the Seychelles islands, located in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean off the coast of East Africa. 

This tropical paradise consists of more than 100 islands with the most magnificently luxurious of them all - North Island - the perfect destination to end your luxury African safari in style.

African Safari FAQ's

The most common Africa safari questions we get asked are answered below. If you have any other questions or would like help planning the perfect African safari, contact us today and speak to an experienced travel consultant to get the best value. 

1. How much does an African safari cost?

If you want a luxury five star safari with an all-inclusive package option, you should budget for around $1,000 per person per day. If you're looking for a luxury four star safari on a bed and breakfast basis, you should budget between $400 - $600 per person sharing daily. The time of year you travel also is a consideration, it's best to speak to a travel consultant for a fixed price. There may also be specials on offer you can take advantage of. 

2. Which African safari is best?

The two most popular destinations are Cape Town and The Kruger Park, both in South Africa. Typically these are followed by an add-on of either Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwe / Zambia border, a beach holiday on Benguerra Island in Mozambique, or an exotic island getaway to the Seychelles in the warm Indian ocean. 

3. What is the best month to go on safari?

The most popular wildlife safari reserve in Africa is the Kruger Park, so let's start there. The best months to visit the Kruger are from August to early October. This is the back-end of winter resulting in cooler day-time temperatures and more active animals. The Kruger is coming out of the dry season and the vegetation is considerably less dense, ideal for game viewing and bush excursions. 

4. How long should an African safari be? 

The average length of a safari is 10 nights, that's the most frequently booked package length. You want to consider the number of destinations you wish to visit but a typical safari package looks like 3-4 nights in Cape Town, 3 nights in the Kruger and then 3-4 nights on a beach destination in South or East Africa. 

5. What is there to do in Africa besides safari?

Destinations like Cape Town in South Africa and Victoria Falls are adventure hotspots boasting a wide variety of activities. Cape Town offers shark cage diving, world-renowned restaurants and wine estates, as well as cultural tours, hiking, surfing, boating and more. Victoria Falls offers white water rafting, bungee jumping, tiger fishing, river cruises, helicopter tours and visits to local villages.  

6. What are the best locations for a Africa Honeymoon Safari?

South Africa is the leading destination for Africa honeymoons and provides a great variety of options, it's like 4 countries in one package.

The typical South Africa Honeymoon Safari starts with 3 nights in the mother city of Cape Town, rated Top 10 most beautiful in the world. Here you'll enjoy blue flag beaches, world-class wine estates, breathtaking coastlines and the finest cuisine in all of Africa. 

You then move onto the Kruger Park for a wildlife safari, where more often than not you'll see The Big Five animals, interact with elephants, go on 2-a-day private game drives and experience a connection with the wild unmatched anywhere on earth. The average stay in the Kruger varies from 3 - 6 nights and often includes multiple lodges. 

Lastly a popular add-on option is to either visit Victoria Falls for an adventure safari, or escape to an exotic island location in the Indian Ocean like Seychelles, Mauritius or Mozambique. 

The typical Africa honeymoon safari package is 7-10 nights and we highly recommend the all-inclusive packages, no need to worry about extras when romance is on your mind. 

7. What are the best locations for a seniors safari?

The two most popular destinations for a seniors safari are The Kruger Park in South Africa and The Okavango Delta in Botswana. 

The Kruger has the largest variety of wildlife and bird species anywhere in Africa, whilst the Okavango Delta is a remote luxury destination, blessed with waterways teeming with wildlife and a good variety of bird species too. 

The Okavango Delta is probably the best location if you're looking for an intimate experience away from the crowds, with unique safaris and wildlife engagement on the banks of the Delta. 

8. How can I make my African safari more affordable?

Apart from traveling during low season and booking lower end accommodation - which we do not recommend - there are a few pro tips to make your 2020 Africa safari more affordable. 

 

These include booking accommodation through lodge groups. The way this works is you book multiple locations using the same lodge operator. 

 

For example, you may book 3 nights at The Silo in Cape Town, 2 nights at La Residence in Franschhoek and 4 nights at Royal Malewane in The Kruger Park. These properties are all owned by the same operator and you will get a discount for booking multiple bed nights. 

 

This is one of the best ways to lower your travel costs whilst maintaining a high level of accommodation. This examples uses what's widely considered as the best group of luxury safari properties in Southern Africa, but there are many other four and five star options available. 

 

If you're traveling on a Honeymoon safari, you'll also get discounts that don't apply to regular traveler's like free upgrades, bonus bed nights, free add-ons and bride pays 50% accommodation offers - all packing in the value for your African Safari adventure

9. What are the best African safaris for families?

The best African safaris for families comprise the top three destinations of Cape Town, The Kruger Park and Victoria Falls. 

These destinations provide a wide variety of activities for young and old.

It's our experience that entertained children lead to happy parents and these destinations offer an abundance of activities to keep small children, teenagers and adults entertained on your African vacation.
