The attraction of going on safari is huge – vast wilderness far away from crowds, open sided 4×4 vehicles roaring along dirt tracks in search of the big five. While Africa may be out of reach for whatever reason, it is still possible to experience the magic of a safari on one of our virtual safaris.
Here are some of our favourite virtual safaris recorded during COVID-19 times.

& Beyond live safaris
Join twice daily live safari game drives, each lasting around three hours! They are streamed from two of South Africa’s top Game Reserves – Ngala and Djuma.
From the &Beyond website “Ngala Private Game Reserve shares an unfenced boundary with the world-renowned Kruger National Park, South Africa’s largest wildlife sanctuary, and one of the biggest game reserves in the world. A spectacular diversity of wildlife moves through this immense wilderness, including breeding herds of elephant, leopard, spotted hyena, giraffe, large buffalo herds and white rhino. With its name meaning lion in the local language Shangaan, Ngala lives up to its promise, supporting several large prides of these powerful cats. African wild dog can also be spotted moving through the reserve.”
