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?

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