Affordable South Africa Safari Holidays

Safari holidays to South Africa to suit any traveller

The words ‘budget’ and ‘safari’ are not often found in the same sentence, unless you are backpacking or overlanding. Affordable South Africa Safari Holidays are our specialty. Whilst safaris are known to be a more expensive holiday than most, simply because of where you are going (remote) and what you are doing (safaris in wilderness with park fees, vehicle and guide costs, accommodation, meals and drinks), as specialists we know the secrets to great value.

Despite the recent dip in the exchange rate between Aussie dollar and the Rand, South African safari holidays still come out more affordable than most other safari countries.

South African National Parks organisation, SANParks, is responsible for over 20 different parks throughout the country. There are some fantastic properties in these parks offering great value for money on accommodation, activities, and inclusions, which it makes self drive South Africa holidays easy. Check out the webcams streaming live from SANParks here, it’s a great way to get a feel for what you can expect on safari in South Africa.

We can put it all together for you, from international and regional flights, arrival VIP meet and greet to avoid feeling overwhelmed (and fast processing through immigration), hire car pick up, accommodation bookings, driving instructions and activities, tours, even restaurant bookings and travel insurance.

If you’re dreaming of a truly isolated bush experience, you may prefer to move away from the busier national parks to private concessions in South Africa where fewer people can stay. It means less vehicle traffic, off road driving, morning, afternoon and evening game drives at a higher price though – so just keep that in mind.

We’ve designed some fantastic value and affordable South Africa safari holidays already this year. Here are a few for you to look at.

12 night City, Safari and Victoria Falls Finale from AUD $5,585 per person [More]
5 night West Coast Self Drive Stunner from AUD$2,599 per person [More]
