Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you need to switch off your adventurous side.
In fact, these 4 winter safari specials might put you in the mood to get packing and spend your winter nights among some of Africa’s most renowned wildlife.
Before we begin, are you looking for a family adventure? Then look at these family-friendly safari lodges across South Africa!
Here are our top 4 picks.
Kruger National Park
You haven’t really gone on safari unless you’ve done it at Kruger National Park, or at least that’s what they say.
This overnight deal with Nkambeni Safari Camp offers a splendid night of luxury for two, including all meals (a la carte or buffet) at a large dining area overlooking the Kruger National Park.
If you are going on an all-day or half-day game drive, you can also request a packed lunch so that you can thoroughly enjoy the experience without a rumbling tummy disturbing the experience.
With Daddy’s Deals, you’ll pay only R3999. This deal is valid until 31 May 2023.
Arguably one of the Western Cape’s most popular Big 5 safaris, Aquila offers luxury in the middle of Touws River in the Karoo. Just under 2 hours from Cape Town’s city centre, Aquila offers half-day and full-day safaris, with all-inclusive luxury accommodation in their lodges or cottages and add-on transport options that include an exclusive fly-in service from Cape Town over the Cape Winelands by fixed-wing plane or helicopter. Is there anything more romantic than that?
With rates starting at R2,725.00 per person sharing, you’d want nothing more than to be snuggled up at the fireplace, while a buffalo drops by for a sip of water at the pond.
Samara Karoo Reserve
Situated in Graaff-Reinet in the Eastern Cape, Samara offers a best-of-both special. If you combine a stay at the Karoo Lodge or The Manor plus a stay at their new Plains Camp, you will receive a 15% discount on the total of your stay.
This special is valid all year round, except for the peak seasons.
Self-proclaimed as one of the most accomplished conservation projects in the Eastern Cape, Kariega offers a host of various specials throughout the year. From honeymoon specials to last-minute deals, and a couple more in-between Kariega seems to have a little something for everyone.
From 1 May to 31 August, they offer low season rates, which gives you 20% off high season prices.
Starting from R5600 per person, you can savour the majesty of the Big 5 on 11500 hectares of the African wilderness.
