Affordable South African safaris!

Affordable South African safaris!

Despite the myth perpetuated by some game lodges that you 'have to spend' at least $4,000 a night to see truly wild animals and stay in decent quality accommodation, there are not only affordable ways to go on safari in but exceptionally pleasant ones too.

Yes, they do exist!  We have just finished building a journey for clients that takes them on a private, guided safari over two days with a local guide for ZAR4600 per day, for a full day trip.  They are also staying at the excellent Nselwini Bush Lodge (which is a public lodge run by KZN Wildlife on the banks of the Mfolozi River) for ZAR2000 per day. Admittedly that's self-catering but the quality of the accommodation is a comfortable four-star and you can drive less than 8km to get food at the Mpila resort is you can't be bothered to cook.

So that's a privately-guided safari, four-star accommodation and food for all in ZAR8 000 (US$650) a night in utterly pristine natural surroundings for two sharing.  Compare that to your average four-star offering in Kruger (which would in any case be shared game drives) and it's about half the price!

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.

Travelling to Southern Africa is truly a return to the source of humankind, to Where It All Began.
