ZAFARIS: post-lockdown travel ideas

So, Covid-19 came barging into our lives at the beginning of 2020 and continues to grace us with its very unwanted presence. The world went into a tailspin and went mad for a little while, but it finally feels like it is starting to spin a little less and we can actually grab our breath and begin to think about living again and pursuing our long-awaited travel dreams. Hopefully for the majority of you, Africa was firmly at the top of your list which is why we have created some fabulous itineraries to maximise your travel time through greater Southern Africa.

One of the devastating impacts of COVID-19 has been the impact on the local African Travel Industry. There is a huge drive to get our industry up and running again not only to generate some desperately needed revenue, but most importantaly to sustain our local communities and our continents Natural Habitat.

Travel to Africa has never been so cost-effective with the number of fantastic specials on offer. Furthermore, the South African Rand has taken a hammering against foreign currencies, which means a trip to Southern Africa could be up to 70% cheaper in comparison to last year. This means that now is a better time than ever to embark on your dream African Safari. The end of 2020 could still be a reality as we slowly see borders across the globe starting to open. Alternatively, start planning now for 2021 sooner rather than later as space is going to be exceptionally limited.

We have put together 7 packages that we feel encompass diversity, culture, sustainability, wildlife, the ability to social distance and the most beautiful and exciting destinations that Africa has to offer.

With all our itineraries, nothing is set in stone and these are just ideas as to what we can offer and tailor-make for you. We have designed a mix of self-drive & fly-in packages through South Africa, Namibia & Botswana since these countries are relatively easy to access. If you prefer to sit back and relax, you can do a combination of driving as well as fly-in, to areas like Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Botswana. Time constraints and distances don't always make self-drive easy, but with us, the options are endless.

15 Days - Cape Town, Winelands, Garden Route and Garden Route Safari

18 Days - Kruger National Park, Swaziland and Kwa-Zulu Natal

14 Days - Victoria Falls and Botswana

22 Days - Namibia Self-Drive

20 Days - Namibia and Botswana Self-Drive
