South Africa

  • Dear Bill, first of all, THANK YOU so much for your help and advise on our trip. It was fantastic and we all enjoyed so much. It was, personally, my best holiday (first time in Africa) and cannot wait to go back to Africa and visit different areas. I believe others felt in similar ways. I must say our itinerary was well thought through and all your advice came in handy in many places. All flights worked out and we did not lose our luggage! Thank you so much. I will definitely contact you when I travel again to Africa, and will recommend your service to others.

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.
