You can choose from eco training course, big game, family and romantic safaris. Luxury, primitive camping and disabled-accessible trips are available. Safaris usually last from one to eight days.
Where to Go
Kruger National Park, Sabi Sands Game Reserve and Timbavati Game Reserve offer many types of pre-planned or custom-made safaris (see Resources).
Going on a safari in winter is the best time to view the most wildlife. If you want to see newborns with their mothers, visit at the end of November through early December. Summer is rainy and high grasses in the fall make viewing animals extremely difficult.
Going on a safari doesn't usually mean flying into an airport and arriving at your safari take-off point in a few minutes. You may have to take another flight or drive for hours to get to the bush.
Safaris include bush walks, hiking, game drives and bird watching. Other activities include native ethnic dances and storytelling.
