Best Time For Me to Go?

Summer

This is from December-March and the average daytime temperature peaks at around 34°C or 93°F. The area is very hot, often with amazing thunder showers! From mid-morning to mid-afternoon the animals often find cool spots making them difficult to spot. On the plus side, many antelope species have babies with them

Autumn

This is from March-June and the average daytime temperature peaks at around 29°C or 84°F. Rainfall is at its highest, vegetation is at its thickest and it is still hot, although cooler in the evenings. Antelope species are now rutting (mating rituals) for the breeding season which is fascinating to watch

Winter

This is June-September and the average daytime temperature peaks at around 25°C or 77°F. Great game viewing can be had all over southern Africa! Days are mild and pleasant and the evenings are chilly. The vegetation is less thick and the game viewing is at its best around the permanent water sources

Spring

This is September-December and the average daytime temperature peaks at around 29°C or 84°F. By far the best time to do a Kruger safari. Many migrant birds return and the game congregate around the sweet grasses and permanent water

Travel?

Each safari can start in either Johannesburg, Nelspruit, Skukuza, Hoedspruit or Phalaborwa  at their respective airports. A transfer to and from the airport is always included

Health & Safety?

Vaccinations

In Africa, things change constantly. As such, so do rules and regulations. Make sure you ask your doctor about vaccinations before coming to Africa and make sure you specify which countries you will be visiting

Malaria

We have written a comprehensive blog post about malaria to keep you in the know. Please click Malaria Info for more info

Snakes

There are many snake species found in Africa, only 10 of which are regarded as deadly. You may be lucky enough to see them living their daily lives out in the bush… Please be aware though that these creatures are very scared of humans and if left alone, pose very little threat to you. If ever one gets too close for comfort, never lash out, that is what we are here for

Ticks

Ticks are often seen in the summer months hanging off grass stems looking for a tasty animal to latch onto. We do encounter them on walks occasionally and suggest you bring insect repellent and wear long pants and boots on our walks

Food and Drink?

Food and drink play a huge role. On safari, they often find the lasting blend between old-world tradition and modern culinary influence. The sense of wilderness isn’t interrupted as you dine beneath the stars, a fire crackling and nocturnal animals calling and moving around. Menus are unique, blending local ingredients – sometimes those you won’t find served anywhere else in the world – with an international focus, perfectly delivered. Each lodge will also have a well stocked bar or your guide will help in getting drinks for you. In short, you will be well looked after

Hygiene?

Rest assured that each hotel has clean water and varied amenities depending on the accommodation, but all will have a hot shower / bath and a clean, flushing toilet

  • Book your own international flights to get to South Africa
  • This safari starts and ends in either Johannesburg, Nelspruit, Skukuza, Hoedspruit or Phalaborwa at their respective airports
  • All rooms are private with en-suite bathrooms and air-cons
  • All activities are guided by local guides. Transportation is enjoyed in minivans that are safe and well maintained
  • Single travellers are welcome

FAQ's

Payment and Currency?

We accept all major credit cards and can organise EFT payments as well

It’s not required to bring thousands of dollars in cash into Africa. Facilities in Africa have improved dramatically in recent years, and it’s now possible to pay by Visa and Mastercard at most locations. Currency exchanges and ATMs are available at most airports

Best Time For Me to Go?

Summer

This is from December-March and the average daytime temperature peaks at around 34°C or 93°F. The area is very hot, often with amazing thunder showers! From mid-morning to mid-afternoon the animals often find cool spots making them difficult to spot. On the plus side, many antelope species have babies with them

Autumn

This is from March-June and the average daytime temperature peaks at around 29°C or 84°F. Rainfall is at its highest, vegetation is at its thickest and it is still hot, although cooler in the evenings. Antelope species are now rutting (mating rituals) for the breeding season which is fascinating to watch

Winter

This is June-September and the average daytime temperature peaks at around 25°C or 77°F. Great game viewing can be had all over southern Africa! Days are mild and pleasant and the evenings are chilly. The vegetation is less thick and the game viewing is at its best around the permanent water sources

Spring

This is September-December and the average daytime temperature peaks at around 29°C or 84°F. By far the best time to do a Kruger safari. Many migrant birds return and the game congregate around the sweet grasses and permanent water

Travel?

Each safari can start in either Johannesburg, Nelspruit, Skukuza, Hoedspruit or Phalaborwa  at their respective airports. A transfer to and from the airport is always included

Health & Safety?

Vaccinations

In Africa, things change constantly. As such, so do rules and regulations. Make sure you ask your doctor about vaccinations before coming to Africa and make sure you specify which countries you will be visiting

Malaria

We have written a comprehensive blog post about malaria to keep you in the know. Please click Malaria Info for more info

Snakes

There are many snake species found in Africa, only 10 of which are regarded as deadly. You may be lucky enough to see them living their daily lives out in the bush… Please be aware though that these creatures are very scared of humans and if left alone, pose very little threat to you. If ever one gets too close for comfort, never lash out, that is what we are here for

Ticks

Ticks are often seen in the summer months hanging off grass stems looking for a tasty animal to latch onto. We do encounter them on walks occasionally and suggest you bring insect repellent and wear long pants and boots on our walks

Food and Drink?

Food and drink play a huge role. On safari, they often find the lasting blend between old-world tradition and modern culinary influence. The sense of wilderness isn’t interrupted as you dine beneath the stars, a fire crackling and nocturnal animals calling and moving around. Menus are unique, blending local ingredients – sometimes those you won’t find served anywhere else in the world – with an international focus, perfectly delivered. Each lodge will also have a well stocked bar or your guide will help in getting drinks for you. In short, you will be well looked after

Hygiene?

Rest assured that each hotel has clean water and varied amenities depending on the accommodation, but all will have a hot shower / bath and a clean, flushing toilet
