South Africa Bush and Beach Safari

South Africa
Bush and Beach Safari

9 Days in South Africa

This experience-rich safari combines South Africa's varied wildlife reserves with pristine beaches in remote less-visited areas of the country.

Start by first exploring Thornybush Private Reserve adjacent to Kruger National Park, where local trackers and guides seek out herds of elephants, prides of lions and elusive leopards.

Explore Phinda Game Reserve known for its excellent guides, abundant wildlife, seven distinct ecosystems and dense wildlife concentrations including rhino, cheetah, buffalo, elephant and lions.

Next, get your feet wet and snorkel in the clear tropical waters of the Indian Ocean in the remote north eastern reaches of the Elephant Coast. Miles of undisturbed coastline spread out in front of your beach bungalow and beckon you to explore tide pools and the coastal forests.

This safari is perfect for honeymooners, couples, groups and families alike and is easily customized to the dates and length that work best for you.
