South Africa

  • Hi Rob, we had a superb time, Rissington Inn was extra interesting because the Rissingtons, after which it was named, are not far from us here in the Cotswolds and we understood the relevance of the pictures of American bombers! The highlights of the trip were the wild dogs and all the game that we saw, especially the pair of Honey Badgers that we saw out foraging in broad daylight in the Kruger, what a treat, never seen them before or expected to. Altogether a very good, stress free holiday, many thanks for your planning and organising.

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.
