Description of Ten day wildlife safari, South Africa

This exciting 10-day safari visits a variety of private game reserves in the greater Kruger Park area, as well as the world-renowned Kruger National Park. The base for this safari is in Wild Rivers Nature Reserve, but this holiday also takes in Klaserie and Thornybush game reserves, which all offer different accommodation and habitat types, for a fully rounded safari experience. This package includes an introduction to learn more about of work in Leopard conservation, plus even more chances to view the Big Five and explore the African bush. It’s the perfect combination of exploring the African bush, learning about our conservation work and enjoying high quality accommodation in fantastic locations.

We are a small company and prefer small groups of less than eight persons, which allow us to deliver a personal service, with flexibility to cater for any specific needs. Whether you’re here for general wildlife viewing or interested in something specific we can help. In addition, you might like to visit one of our community projects. Choose to be hands-on or simply sit back and let us take the strain. Whatever you prefer, we’ll do our best to provide. Just let us know what you want from your safari experience and together we can make your time with us truly memorable.

This 10-day safari runs all year round and is also available for families. Children under 12 years get 50% off the adult price. Bush walks are replaced by game drives for children under 14 years.

Where possible we provide an all-inclusive price for each safari, with any additions clearly shown on your itinerary. That’s because we understand how important it is to plan your safari costs and avoid any hidden extras.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Each safari provides a real wildlife viewing and conservation experience.
By opting for a safari with us safari guests are already helping to contribute towards our conservation work. In addition guests are afforded the opportunity to gain an insight into real African conservation work if they wish, either by observing our work or assisting our rangers. In this way we hope guests will help to spread the message of what real African conservation is and what the needs are.

All of our food, bathroom and kitchen supplies are from local sources and as far as possible, we aim to use a combination of organic, fair-trade and sustainable products.

We are committed to reducing reliance ion single use plastics in Africa and with that in mind each guest receives a complimentary metal water bottle to top up and use rather than plastic.

We believe that everyone is able to help make a difference towards conserving our environment. When on safari or in the bush, we operate a policy of ‘bring out what you take in’ i.e. we leave no litter or man made products behind. Game drive vehicles do not deviate from existing roads and tracks, however guided foot safaris will access game trails which cannot be reached by vehicle. When on foot, we stay on the trail as deviating can cause erosion and other environmentally harmful impacts.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

While on safari we recommend that visitors buy locally produced goods and support local artisans. In this way, visitors are able to help sustain the local community, contribute towards conservation and enrich their own lives. During each safari there will be opportunities to purchase goods from local artists, market stalls and restaurants in keeping with the ideals of fair trade. Our guides will advise on a ‘fair price’ if requested, however it is worth noting that a relatively small sum can make a huge difference to peoples lives in Africa and guests are asked to consider this when bargaining with market stallholders.

Our safari staff are all recruited locally and encouraged to develop within the organisation to achieve their goals and where applicable to produce conservation based items for sale (100% of the proceeds going to the originator).

On arrival, we hold an informal chat with guests to explain our conservation work and how they are able to contribute during their safari. A travellers’ code of conduct is also issued with each bespoke safari itinerary.

There were so many moments! For stand out viewings we loved spending time watching 2 young male lions on the Ruikiya safari, sitting watching the wild- dog pups playing together while the adults were out hunting at Thornybush, Tangala, and then some wonderful leopard encounters at Klaserie thanks to the amazing tracker and guide at Nzumba.

The whole trip was memorable. Lots of exciting moments seeing lions and elephants really close. Spending a couple of hours with two young male lions close by was very special. All the guides were very knowledgeable and helped us to understand the behaviour of the animals and birds we were seeing. Read full review

Two highlights were the sight of a leopard chased up a tree with 4 wild dogs circling underneath it and sitting by a muddy pool for ages watching 'teenage' and baby elephants playing and rolling in the mud! Oh, and the pride of 5 lions and the male elephant walking by right next to the jeep. Read full review
