Southern Africa Safari

Safari – such a powerful word that conjures up romantic images of untamed wildlife, magical scenery and beautiful African sunsets. A safari is a soul-stirring experience, and no visit to Southern Africa is complete without a visit to one or more of the many game reserves. Whether you are a first-time safari visitor, a family or a seasoned wildlife enthusiast, there is a safari with your name on it!

Secure in a glorious safari tent or indulging in an acclaimed five-star lodge, an African safari with Cape Tours will always bring you closer to nature. Choose from a range of Southern Africa’s luxurious private game reserves or private concessions within National Parks.

South Africa is a country of enough contrasts and diversity to satisfy any safari needs. A safari in South Africa is perfect when combining a visit to the many other must see attractions of the Rainbow Nation. The world-famous national parks and wildlife areas; the Kruger, the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal amongst many others, are home to mind-blowing wildlife, including the ‘big five’. They boast superb game viewing opportunities alongside some of the most luxurious lodges in Africa.

The Cape is home to various nature reserves, marine reserves and game parks; both private and public, where a wide variety of fauna and flora can be found. It is a malaria free area, making it the perfect safari destination. The area supports prolific birdlife; and game includes, among many others, the Big 5 (elephant, lion, leopard, rhino and buffalo), whilst at the Addo National Park, the ‘Big Seven’, including whales and great white sharks

The national reserves and parks in Mpumalanga are amongst the premier attractions in South Africa. Probably the most famous of all the national parks is the Kruger National Park. The Kruger National Park has the largest concentration of game species on earth, and the best developed infrastructure of all Africa’s game parks.

If your preference is the more secluded, luxurious version of an ‘Out-of-Africa’ experience, take your choice from the wide range of breath-taking private bush camps in the Sabi Sand or the many private reserves bordering the Greater Kruger National Park.

Famous for its rhino management programme, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) has earned a reputation for wildlife conservation and management. The province is renowned for its diversity of wildlife and reserves encompassing a variety of ecosystems. Sand forests, woodland, savannah, bushveld, and wetlands. Isimangaliso Wetland Park, the country’s third-largest wildlife sanctuary and a magnificent World Heritage Site. A major draw-card to the Zululand region is the opportunity to view the ‘Big Five in the vast Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park.

Botswana is often referred to as one of the wildest regions in Africa, because it offers such diverse safari options in pristine environments. It is a place of endless horizons, with an abundance of wildlife, unspoilt wilderness, splendid waterways, and desert landscapes.

The Okavango Delta is unlike anything else you’ll have seen or experienced. With Cape Tours, you will experience this breath-taking wilderness from the air, water and land. To fly over the Delta in a light aircraft is simply awe-inspiring, and in most cases the only way to reach the more remote camps.

Botswana may be best known for its Delta, but the country also boasts two of Africa’s finest game reserves: Moremi, renowned for its huge herds of elephant, buffalo, giraffe and antelope; Chobe, further north, thought to have the highest concentration of elephants in the world. For a thrilling end to a memorable day, take a sunset cruise at Chobe, and watch hundreds of dusty elephants ponderously cavorting with each other at the river’s edge. The Linyanti Region lies within Chobe and here, in the dry season, the concentration of game is such that the visitor will see buffalo by the thousand, followed by sizeable prides of lion.

In stark contrast, the Etosha National Park in Namibia, a vast oasis in the semi-desert, offers some of the most extraordinary game-viewing experiences. Consisting of saline desert, Savannah and woodlands and is one of the largest Game Reserves in Africa. Its definitive feature is the Etosha Pan, a vast, shallow depression of approximately 5000 square km. Of the 114-mammal species found in the park, several are rare and endangered whilst others are endemic to north-western Namibia.
