South Africa


Situated at the tip of the African continent and surrounded by two oceans, South Africa boasts breathtaking scenery, quaint coastal villages and cosmopolitan cities that can all be combined with a truly exhilarating Big Five South African safari.

 

Consistently voted as one of the top tourist destinations around the world, South Africa is home to one of the world's biggest nature reserves, the renowned Kruger National Park, as well as one of the most beautiful and scenic cities, Cape Town.

 

There are many different ways of traveling to South Africa but most visitors fly to Johannesburg or Cape Town. For most visitors

coming from Europe, the UK or the USA, this is a long flight of several hours. Once in the country, different modes of transport are safe to use and are recommended.

 

Roads are in a very good condition, even in game reserves like the Kruger National Park, but keep in mind that South Africa is a vast country and it may take several hours to reach destinations. Public transport like minibus taxis and buses is not a recommended mode of transport. Inland flights however are safe to use and avoid people spending too much time reaching their destinations

Sausage Tree Safari Camp

Sausage Tree Safari Camp is situated in the Balule Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger Park and sanctuary to Africa’s Famous Big Five. With almost 3000 ha of traversing you can look forward to a true safari experience of wilderness and undisturbed biodiversity. Uniquely positioned in the bush between Marula and Acacia trees with it’s own special view above and beyond the thorn trees, our waterhole, the Olifants River and the majestic Drakensburg range on the horizon, Sausage Tree Safari Camp is a place not easily forgotten!

Remember the old-style safari and sleeping under canvas? Well there truly is nothing like it! The sounds of the night are closer, the smells are stronger, and the feeling of actually being in the bush is so much more intense. See more

The magic and mystery of Africa come alive in the colonial ambiance of elegant  Ngala Safari Lodge.  Ngala Safari Lodge’s 21 classic safari cottages overlook a private waterhole frequented by wildlife.

This old-world haven in the midst of the African bush charms with its colonial antiques, silver cutlery and crystal glassware.  Style and grace mingle faultlessly with the rugged natural beauty of the setting, as manicured lawns give way to dense mopane thickets and wild animals saunter down to drink at the waterhole.
