If you are thinking about your next vacation, today there are many affordable destinations, but the difference with the country at the southern tip of the black continent is that South Africa enjoys infrastructures, luxury accommodations, and first-class restaurants, essential to organize an ideal holiday.
East Africa is one of the most spectacular areas of our planet, with extensive protected areas where wildlife lives its course. Going to luxury destinations in Tanzania is a magnificent experience of contact with nature. Even after years of the professional relationship with safaris, these trips are still among our favorites. There are many types of safaris: in private concessions or in natural parks, traveling by truck or 4×4. Each alternative has its advantages, and knowing them helps to adjust expectations to reality.
Safari in South Africa: an Opportunity for Gourmets of All Pockets
The restaurants of Cape Town are on a par with those of any international metropolis, but at a third of the price and with Table Mountain as a backdrop. With hundreds of courses, South Africa is one of the best destinations for golf lovers, but a green fee at the most exclusive resorts does not reach out of reach of the most.
Some of the luxury safari lodgings and more exclusive offer their prices in US dollars, so they remain the territory of the bulkiest budgets, but excellent camps and lodges are now a bargain. For example, some of our preferred camps in the private reserves of Timbavati or Sabi Sand, adjoining the famous Kruger National Park, offer exclusive access to park wildlife in 4 × 4 vehicles fully adapted with ranger guides, luxury accommodation and service 5 stars, gourmet full board, including drinks at a price less than a hotel night in Manhattan.
Lodges specializing in families
With special safari programs for children, these prices are per adult all-inclusive. We are talking about suites or individual villas with private terrace, maximum 2 vehicles per sighting and with insured window, sunsets in the savanna with a cocktail, guided safaris on foot, taxes, and fees.
A DAY OF SAFARI
A coffee, cookies and we left at dawn. This is one of the best times at luxury destinations in Tanzania for observing wildlife; the temperature is cool, and the animals are active. This route usually lasts between two and four hours.
Noon and lunch
We return to the lodge/camp where breakfast awaits us. Free time to relax or enjoy the pool until lunchtime, during the hottest hours of the day. Around 4 p.m., we are ready for the next game drive.
As the sun goes down, the animals return to the activity, which increases as the night approaches. And game drives are especially satisfying at this time of day. At dusk, we return to the accommodation.
Time for a shower and a drink before dinner. It’s time to share experiences and tell stories around a fire or at the bar counter. Some parks offer the possibility of participating in night game drives
