Luckily, we’ve created a one-stop shop of all the travel info and pro trips you’ll need to make your South African safari dreams come true. You'll be leading the pride in no time!
High in the Sky
Head up into the skies at sunrise in a hot air balloon. This balloon has only one destination: Kruger National Park. Soar over the western edge of the park as you scan the horizon for the Big Five.
Bringing you back down to earth for a second, the Baz Bus can be a reliable and fun, everyday transport method. This handy hop-on, hop-off idea can get you to Cape Town, Durban, and Johannesburg, all while traveling with fellow explorers. This user-friendly initiative gives you the perfect excuse to discover the stunning beaches of Durban.
Reaching Cruising Altitude
If you fancy heading back up into the sky, fear not—internal flights are super reasonable and are an alternative to the longer Baz Bus routes. Mango and Kulula are two inexpensive airline options, which will get you to major cities in no time and won’t rob you of your Rand. Just kick back and relax, and you’ll be across the country in no time.
Driving Cross Country
Fancy going solo? A 4x4 is highly recommended. Traveling by car will give you a fantastic opportunity to make your own itinerary. Why not visit iSimangaliso Wetland Park? It's one of South Africa’s eight World Heritage sites. This stunning park is home to hippos, crocodiles, pelicans, and flamingos—sure to be an unforgettable experience. Then again...that will likely be the case with your entire vacation here.
