Our Kruger, Coast & Cape trips score an average of 4.69 out of 5 based on 26 reviews in the last year.
Expect long days travelling, cold nights, mangled hands (from putting up and taking down that tent) only to be rewarded with spotting the big five, the small five, the ugly five, amazing sunrises, gorgeous sunsets, extraordinary landscapes. Africa is an adventure not a holiday, appreciated more when you are back in your own bed dreaming about your African encounter.
