Top Tips when booking a Safari

  • Game drives can leave you a little windswept – pack warm clothing as it can be chilly in the early mornings and late evenings
  • Take comfortable walking shoes – guided walks with a tracker are an exciting alternative to a traditional game drive and provide a different perspective on the bush
  • Plan on missing the morning or evening game drive at least once - allow yourself time to revel in your glorious bush setting – enjoy a bush bath, a romantic dinner in the bush or ‘sleep-out’ in a treehouse under the stars! Sanctuary Makanyane and Garonga are two of our favourite safari lodges in South Africa and both offer unique sleep-outs under the African sky – a must for all honeymooners! 
  • Travel lightly – many camps and lodges are accessible via small plane (take soft bags – the pilot will love you - and leave your main luggage at the airport)
  • Consider whether you want to take malaria precautions or not …
  • Dress informally (and in neutral colours) on safari – leave your fancy attire for your beach hotel
  • Forget your diet – you will eat well on safari – bush breakfasts, romantic dinners next to a blazing fire with only the light of the lanterns hanging in the tress standing between you and the bush, sundowners whilst watching the sun slip beyond the horizon …are all part of the safari experience …
