South Africa Safaris

Safaris in South Africa

Introduction

South Africa is home to over 200 species of mammals; experience the abundant wildlife in all its glory by partaking in a guided bush walk or safari game drive.

Take a walk through the Bush

A walk through South Africa’s bush with an experienced guide helps you truly understand the rhythm of the wilderness and is one of the most sought-after activities that South Africa has to offer. Spend the morning tracking wildlife on a spectacular walking safari in a protected area such as Timbavti Game Reserve and allow the guides to educate you on the overall ecosystem. The reserve is home to an abundance of mammals, reptiles and amphibians, and your chance of encountering the Big Five is high.

Take a game drive through a National Park

To experience the diversity of South Africa’s wildlife, we recommend a game drive through one of the many national parks. Your driver and guide will be in the know for the best locations to observe your favourite animals in their natural habitats. Visit a watering hole and watch the mismatch of animals enjoy a refreshing drink. Home to over 10,000 elephants, 20,000 buffalo and the worlds largest rhino population, Kruger National Park is perhaps the most spectacular location to tick off the Big Five from your Africa checklist. Keep your eyes peeled for giraffe, kudu, springbok, gnu and zebra too.

Relax in a luxurious safari lodge

After a long day outdoors there is nothing more welcoming than a luxurious lodge to round off your day. Enjoy a sundowner with a braai and a beer – or indeed one of South Africa's world-class wines – then relax in the comfort of your luxury tented camp.

A safari tailored to your needs

At Wexas we tailor your holiday to your precise needs. If you're looking to spot a specific animal, we will ensure your itinerary contains locations known for their sightings, or if you'd like to consider something extra special – walking with elephants, perhaps – then we can cater for your ideas.
