HHere in the South African wilderness, you begin your journey into the soul of Africa. It’s one that engages all your senses from the very first moment, sparked to life when you first hear the distant roar of a lion, the laugh of a hyena in the night, or the song of thousands of cicada beetles at midday. Then experience the heightening of these senses when you first spot a rare leopard hidden in a tree, or feel the ground vibrate as a herd of giant elephants cross right in front of you.
WWith the ever-present sun shining on your face, (or on the brim of your safari hat!) the South African wild is yours to explore. Leave your trip in the hands of a friendly game ranger, an expert on absolutely everything there is to know about the wild, who’ll charm, intrigue and leave your head spinning with the facts and fascinating myths of the world you’re entering. Start the day the way nature intended, at the crack of dawn, to see the wild residents emerge for a drink from the busy waterhole as the sun begins to rise over the iconic bushveld scenery. Then with your trusty guide by your side, track a herd of buffaloes as they amble along the great open expanses. And after a day of never-to-be-forgotten sights and safari moments, it’s time to return to the warmest embrace of luxury lodges and some of the friendliest hosts around. When you’ve eaten enough for a family of elephants and shared all your favourite stories of the day, it’s finally time to drop into bed and be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the bush.
WWhatever experience you’re after, South Africa has accommodation for any budget – from luxury to camping under a million stars. And it’s not just classic bushveld safari like you know it; our wildlife experiences spread through lush forests, wetlands, beaches, rivers and deserts. Choose from guided game-vehicle tours, to relaxing walks, horseback and river safaris or take it all in from the air as you fly over the landscape in a hot air balloon.
YYou’ll soon feel that this world moves at its own speed, and to witness it and be part of it is something you won’t forget. Coming this close to nature is a vivid reminder of why we have always been inspired by the untouched wild.
