  • Hi Frances, we are still desperately trying to hold onto that holiday feeling! The tan, however is fading! Kings Camp was stunning – we had such a warm welcome. Everything about it was perfect, the staff who work at the camp all have their own personality whilst delivering a first class service – the facilities are first rate, a fantastic spa and a gym! The Wi-Fi worked better than our Wi-Fi in Cape Town! The game viewing was incredible – we saw the big 5 in the first 3 drives and was lucky enough to see wild dogs and twice witnessed leopards with their kill. The surprises kept coming… One night we came back from our drive and they had arranged for private dining on our room veranda, complete with a hot bath they had already run with candles all around it. A full on braai one night in a different outdoor dining area with us all sat in a semi circle – great to mix up the setting whilst being able to mix more with other guests. A surprise bush breakfast one morning where they took us to a site with tables and chairs, full cook area and a proper luxury outdoor loo! We can’t thank you enough for such an incredible trip, we are hooked – we are thinking next trip may be Botswana! Which we would naturally come to you for. Thanks again.

South Africa Prices

South Africa is a hugely diverse tourist destination and the price range for holidays equally wide. If you are looking for value for money, then bed and breakfast properties can be fairly inexpensive and a week touring the Cape region may cost from £1500.00 per person including car hire and international flights from the UK. Typically, expect to pay from £3200.00 for a two week self drive holiday which includes 3 nights on safari. Longer self-drive itineraries, wildlife safaris, exclusive or luxurious hotel options, combinations with other countries, beach extensions and upgraded airline seats will all add to the cost. Some top end hotels and safari properties are extremely expensive and combining a number of these properties together with business class flights can lead to costs of £10,000.00 per person and above.

We appreciate that going on safari in Africa is an expensive holiday, but we are always conscious of providing ‘value for money’. Our selection of properties for any itinerary is based entirely upon those which we feel will most closely match your requirements, whether that be budget driven or experience driven. It is sometimes very difficult to differentiate between a top-quality safari property, and one which offers a lesser experience. Accordingly, a safari which offers value for money should not necessarily be confused with a ‘cheap’ safari.

If you are planning your first safari, we suggest you look at our Planning a Safari section. We do not offer mainstream package tours (minibus tours) or cheap camping trips.
