There is a place in the world where the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean kiss, where the music does not stop, where wild life still reigns, where the most modern metropolises and the most exotic towns coexist, where there are white sand beaches and waves very blue. a few kilometers from iconic mountains and endless savannas, and where the streets mix, in the name of justice and equality, all colors.
South Africa invites you to a party that only takes place there. A party that was born with the fight for rights and peace led by Nelson Mandela, and that you and your family can enjoy.
In our Accessible Safari we spent 4 days exploring the Kruger National Park. Here you have a good chance to see the Big Five (lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard) and many other animals, plants and birds in their natural environment.
The next 3 days will be spent in a private reserve where you can go on safaris, possibly walk with leopards, meet Jessica, the famous hippo, and other encounters with nearby animals.
Hear the call of the animals, taste traditional food, see the famous red sunsets, feel the African heartbeat, meet other travelers, have fun and much more ... all in 8 days!
