At Southern African Travel we specialise in one-of-a-kind itineraries. Our website showcases a selection of sample itineraries: African adventure tours, family holidays and honeymoon safaris (amongst others) - but think of these as a starting point; travel inspiration that will be tweaked and changed with personal touches added according to your individual needs.

Each of our tours and safaris is prepared with integrity, creativity and attention to detail. We carefully plan every detail of your holiday including choosing just the right lodges and hotels and arranging faultless logistics, while offering insider tips and must-do recommendations along the way.

When you submit a travel enquiry, simply select an approximate budget: value, mid-range or all luxury. Your safari expert will then use that information in selecting the right lodges for you.

All of the accommodation featured on our site has been tried and tested to ensure it meets our exacting standards. Whether you stay at a tucked-away tented camp or a luxurious lodge with personal butlers and private pools, we know you'll be blown away by the high levels of comfort and service at the properties we pick for you.
