ULTIMATE KRUGER SAFARI

Back to the wild in Kruger National Park!! This is Africa as it was created. Untamed, unpredictable and wonderful - full of expectation and discovery. Sleep in a Tree House or a luxury chalet, eat around an open boma with the heavens strutting out the glory of the Southern skies and drive in an open game vehicle through pristine bushveld.

 

What’s Hot September 2019

SPRING in South Africa: blossoms, fields of wild flowers in the desert, babies born in the wild, whales visiting from Antarctica, migrant birds arriving, festivals and happenings. There are places to go and things to see. I have chosen a few that are exciting and fun.

 

Best Day Trips Out of Johannesburg

Johannesburg, the city of GOLD. This bustling, multi-cultural city is Africa's Economic Powerhouse with a population of over 13 million people. Just an hour or 2 out of the city and you can be in open big 5 bushveld, play golf at a premier course at Sun City, or explore the wonders of the Cradle of Mankind.

 

Beautiful Ballito

Ballito is a tropical paradise in the heart of the Dolphin Coast. Nestled between sugar cane fields and golden beaches, with sparkling blue seas, surfing dolphins and breaching whales, this a favoured beach holiday venue for South Africans and visitors alike. There is more to Ballito than the superb beaches. Great restaurants, ziplines, microlight flights, action for the kids and markets to explore.
