The ‘rainbow nation’ of South Africa offers the full spectrum of safari and travel experiences. This diverse and dynamic country has inspired your safari experts at Art of Safari to curate the best of the land into South Africa’s best safari itineraries – among the best in Africa – to inspire you to create your own, with our help.
South Africa has shaken off its troubled past and now symbolises a bright future for Africa. Heritage and hope have combined to create the continent’s most vibrant cities while still preserving immense wild spaces as iconic national parks.
The Kruger is the most renowned safari destination in South Africa, and features in several of South Africa’s best safari itineraries. Together with the private concessions of the adjacent Sabi Sand, the Kruger has crucial populations of rhino and is one of the best places in Africa to find big cats – above all leopard. Our Kruger safaris offer the perfect balance between five-star ‘safari chic’ lodges and thrilling wildlife encounters.
South Africa’s coastline has something of a split personality, as the waters of two oceans, warm and cold, swirl into each other creating a gloriously prolific marine ecosystem.
The Indian Ocean coast with its pristine beaches stretching up to Mozambique and beyond is best enjoyed one of our Maputaland safari and beach holidays.
Alternatively, explore the gastronomic delights (think wine and oysters as a small taster) of the Atlantic Seaboard, and watch out for passing whale on one of our Garden Route safaris.
Routes through the Fairest Cape merge naturally into our Cape Town escapes – your chance to experience one of the world’s epicurean capitals, and the most spectacularly-sited city in Africa.
Turning inland, rugged ancient landscapes and uniquely-adapted wildlife await on our safaris in the Kalahari, Madikwe and Waterberg – still more proof of how wonderfully varied South Africa is.
