Safaris for Africa
In a continent blessed with a rich cultural heritage, historic sites and an autonomous wildlife, a tour company's task is monumental. When planning safaris, it needs to consider the best route and optimal time for viewing game, determine a strategic location for the guests' accommodation, and select a range of extraordinary experiences in a limited time-span that will leave travellers spellbound.
This is a challenge that Safaris for Africa rises to admirably. With an acute understanding of this vast continent, Safaris for Africa has sifted through highlights of Southern African culture and natural wonders and compressed them into trips that can be taken by car, boat or helicopter. As its name implies, Safaris for Africa has designed well thought-out packages in abundance. The jaunts they extend to prospective guests vary from low-key city tours of Cape Town, Durban and Gauteng to heart-stopping safaris, in utmost luxury, through Mpumalanga, Tanzania, Botswana and Zambia.
Safaris for Africa has on offer a host of day and package tours, all of which can be customised. The KwaZulu-Natal Day Tours encompass visits to Champagne Valley and Birds of Prey, The Drakensberg Mountains and a fascinating viewing of San Rock Art; a boat ride that brings guests as close as 50 metres to dolphins and ventures further down the South Coast to Oribi Gorge where a 27 km long nature reserve cradles by the Mzimkulwana River; a composite tour that unveils Stone-Age Rock Art of the Drakensberg and Zulu Culture; and an opportunity to attend a concert by the renowned Drakensberg Boys Choir. The half-day Durban city tour (morning or afternoon) opens one's eyes to the beauty of Surf city, its Harbour, Botanical Gardens, and the Oriental Indian Market. A full-day tour of Greater Durban goes beyond these landmarks to include a scenic trip to the Valley of 1000 Hills and a safari park. Isandlwana and Rorkes Drift, battlefields of the Anglo-Boer War, are also accessible to guests either by land or helicopter.
A day tour in Gauteng will acquaint you with Soweto, Gold Reef City, and gold mining.
But where Safaris for Africa proves that it is the tour company par excellence is in its mind-blowing adventures into the Kruger National Park, Namibia, Botswana, the Victoria Falls and its ingenious offer for travellers to witness the Great Tanzanian Wildebeest Migration. Imagine yourself comfortably ensconced in a luxury lodge while the Great Serengeti Plains around you throb beneath the hooves of 300,000 wildebeest and 350,000 zebras. Wake up to the expanse of the Tarangire or Lake Manyara National Parks awash in the soft peach hues of a new dawn. Hold your breath at the sight of majestic elephants and feline agility of tree-climbing lions, or the ten-mile wide and 2000 feet deep Ngorongoro Crater. Do all of this and more in 10 days while you retire every night to your luxury lodge or tent.
Its proven ten-year track record in the business makes Safaris for Africa your ultimate guide to close encounters with the Big Five in the Kruger National Park. Time is of the essence so the trip hits off with a drive along Sabi River, the watering hole and crossing for elephants, bushbuck, kudu and large prides of lions. In Tshokwane, home to the Big Five, predators like lions, cheetah, hyenas and leopards bask in the grasslands. Game drives with rangers, archeological sites, the famous Boabab trees of the Pafuri area round off this seven-day trip.
The nine-day Victoria Falls and Botswana Animal Safari package tracks the wildlife of the Chobe area in Botswana where the luxury lodge is situated. A river crossing and a drive to Zambia will bring you to your hotel on the banks of the Zambezi River. What could possibly be more spectacular than beholding Victoria Falls from a helicopter? And if you can bring yourself to do it, elephant-back safaris are also on the cards.
In addition, Safaris for Africa offer a six-day visit of Cape Town and the Garden Route. All packages can be mixed or matched. The company also specialises in seminars, conferences, weddings and incentives functions.
This team certainly means business.
