Big five safari tours in South Africa with Namibia Travel Connection

South Africa teems with tourists all year round on account of its beautiful landscapes, cultural diversity and high standard of facilities. From the Cape Winelands to the tropical coastlines at Umhlanga Rocks, South Africa offers visitors a range of possibilities for adventure, from surfing, diving and river rafting to hiking, mountain biking and guided safaris. South Africa’s premier holiday resorts are ideal for luxury safari holidays and big five safari tours, where the rarest wildlife and captivating big game come out to play.

Because South Africa has a variety of mountain ranges, rivers and lakes, it also provides visitors with the opportunity to experience striking and contrasting landscapes within its borders. The great Karoo plateau on the border of the Kalahari Desert is distinctive for its red sand and scrubland vegetation, while the high Drakensberg Mountains to the north east form South Africa’s coldest region, where visitors can ski in winter and summer rain yields a cornucopia of plant life.

Top destinations in South Africa

Roads are well maintained and accommodation is of the highest standard in Sub-Saharan Africa, meaning you can easily access and enjoy South Africa’s premier holiday resorts. Arrange luxury safari itineraries to South Africa by contacting Namibia Travel Connection today, or by reviewing the following leading safari and coastal destinations:

  • South African safari in Kruger National Park: The size of a small country and teeming with wildlife both common and rare, the Kruger National Park is a state asset. Situated in the Lowveld – meaning it has a sub-tropical climate and is populated with grassland, thorn trees and open woodland – Kruger is a warm destination that provides plenty of opportunity for big game viewing. Book an African safari from open vehicles in Kruger, and remember that at just four short hours out of Johannesburg, Kruger is located in South Africa’s heartland.
  • Pilanesberg game reserves: Situated in North West province near the gambling, golfing and entertainment resort of Sun City, Pilanesberg is the fourth largest game reserve in South Africa. Set into a long-extinct volcano, Pilanesberg is spectacular owing to its rocky, time-carved landscapes and woody valleys and knolls. Embark on fly-in or self drive holidays in Pilanesberg game reserves and you’re guaranteed to encounter unforgettable sights.
  • Whale Coast & Overberg tours: South African self-drive holidays are ideal in the leisurely Western Cape Garden Route, where wine farms are dotted up the scenic coast, and the beaches beckon to be visited. Fynbos reserves provide opportunities for hiking, mountain biking and swimming, while the coastal towns available on the Whale Coast such as Riversdale, Stilbaai and Witsand provide unspoilt eco-tourism resources. Book Overberg tours in Hermanus to watch the whales at play, or enjoy the Western Cape’s Winelands holiday safaris with Namibia Travel Connection.
  • uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park safaris: The Drakensberg Mountain range in KwaZulu-Natal is a magnificent World Heritage Site of natural beauty, which includes flowing waterfalls and icy rivers, undulating valleys and dense forests that give way to sandstone cliffs. Once a spiritual home for the San people, the Drakensberg Mountain range is splashed with evidence of San rock paintings. Embark on uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park safaris and take advantage of the numerous tented camps, luxury lodges and guest farms available in just a two-hour drive outside of Durban.
