Safari in South Africa

May 10, 2009  By: Africa Adventure Consultants

Lyndsay here, I wanted to post a brief update for everyone from South Africa. I am currently at the amazing INDABA travel show in Durban, South Africa. This is a great time for me to meet with many of our associates in Africa and get updates on all the latest developments here. We are looking forward to some exciting opportunities for the rest of 2009 and into 2010. Now is certainly the time to travel to Africa.

Previous to my stay in Durban, I was in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve near Kruger National Park. I spent one night at a great little lodge called Savannah – an excellent value offer luxurious tented rooms and suites. The guides were phenomenal, with extensive training in zoology and biology. Some highlights included wild dog, a female leopard with 5 month-old-cub, excellent elephant, rhino and lion sightings. I was really impressed! In addition, the service, food and atmosphere at Savannah were all great – excellent cuisine, genuine hospitality and phenomenal wildlife. What more could we want on safari?

Next, I ventured to Royal Malewane. What an incredibly luxurious spot! This lodge is amazing and they haven’t missed one detail. With such luxury comes a price tag, but this would be an excellent splurge for a honeymoon or special anniversary trip. The wildlife was also impressive there with sightings of both black and white rhino and a female cheetah with three cubs and a recent impala kill. Some exciting stuff! Juan, our guide, was one of the best. The lodge owners have also recently opened their private bush home to groups and families looking to book it on an exclusive basis when they are not there visiting. This is a great option for families looking to host a reunion or wedding in the utmost luxury. It would be hard to beat! We will be able to arrange this for our clients on special request.

I’ll be at INDABA in South Africa for the next few days before heading into Botswana’s Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park. I hope to be able to send more updates soon!

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of?
