Wildlife and safari tours
Did you know?
Over 800 cheetah cubs have been bred at the The Anne van Dyk Cheetah Centre (previously De Wildt) since the cheetah breeding project was launched in 1971.
Wildlife and safari tours are some of the reasons that South Africa is renowned as a world-class tourism and meetings destination. For those visiting the country for business reasons, the inspiration provided by sojourns into the African bush is hard to beat. Waking up in the early hours of the morning, jumping on to the back of a safari vehicle and heading into the thick bush to find wild animals is an exceptional way to start your day. There’s a certain element of excitement in the air mixed in with the smells of hot coffee and the sounds of nature. Seeing a giraffe, buffalo, elephant or lion in the bush for the very first time is addictive and going on safari is a great way of getting colleagues to bond.
Wildlife and safari activities are popular for those visiting the country for meetings, conferences and conventions. The game lodges in Mpumalanga and Limpopo province cater perfectly for a trip that combines both business and bushveld activities. Game drives are very popular, but so are walking safaris and the opportunity to view game on horseback is on offer at some lodges. There are also opportunities to take part in learning-to-be-a-game-ranger courses as part of corporate team building. In the Northern Cape you may even be lucky enough to learn the ancient art of tracking animals according to the ancient San (the world’s 'First People').
Wildlife and safari tours can easily be arranged even if you are staying in the major urban centres to conduct your business meetings. After all has been said and done in the business arena, organise a tour to any one of South Africa’s 21 national parks (including the Kruger National Park). There’s no doubt that your business-and-safari experience will remain with you for many years to come.
