Our Safaris

Explore Our Safaris 

Spring and Fall are the best times to visit for a safari in South Africa: we plan around the best weather and wildlife activity.

In early autumn days are getting cooler and the rains have ended. Grass dies down and tree cover starts to drop.

In the Spring season the grass has not yet begun to grow and nights will gradually get warmer while days are dry, warm and sunny.

Both seasons are the best times to visit South Africa: low grass and tree cover, comfortable temperatures, low chance of rain, minimal bugs and dust.

New! for 2022

Special Classic Safari + Underground Photo Hide
Kruger Area at our Tree House Lodge, Sabi Sands Leopards, & an Underground Hide

We will close out these 10 day safaris with a 2 night stay at a small lodge where we will have exclusive use of an underground (water level) photography and wildlife hide. With 24 hour access to the hide, nobody will miss any of the Greater Kruger Park big 5 wildlife activity. Like our classic safaris, we start at our tree house lodge to experience Kruger national Park and the surrounding area then three nights in the famous Sabi Sands reserve for leopards. These safaris are a delight for photographers wanting a variety of wildlife images, close encounters with leopards, and the unique perspective of a hide at water level at a watering hole. Non Photographers also welcome.
