make SOUTH africa your destination for FALL 2024

Your safari begins with your arrival into Hoedspruit.  Your first night will immerse you into the magic of South Africa and you’ll meet the other travelers on your intimate small group safari.

The destinations on our South Africa safaris have been selected because of the diversity of their terrain.  Some are dry, some are next to a river, and some consist of “low veldt” which are tall grasses.  Each area is favored by different wildlife, and so by varying the terrain we see, we offer a larger opportunity of seeing wildlife.

Our next safari is in November 2024 and features the World Famous Timbavati Reserve, Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate, Moholoholo Rehab Center for wildlife, private lodges, and much more!
