South Africa is a world-class safari destination, with a number of superb game lodges in private reserves offering outstanding game viewing and incredible value for money.

Londolozi and MalaMala are two of South Africa’s pioneering private game reserves in prime wilderness areas along the Sand River, in the heart of the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve.  Both share unfenced borders with the Kruger Park – an immense protected area of more than two million hectares.  We have chosen two exclusive lodges in this region which is renowned for some of South Africa’s finest Big Five encounters, an impressive diversity of general game and excellent bird-watching.

This land has been protected for the last hundred years or so, and as a result, the wildlife is relaxed in the presence of game viewing vehicles.  These private reserves offer the freedom to explore off-road with highly experienced guides.  There are very few other vehicles, offering exclusive game viewing and some of the best photographic opportunities in the country.

Both lodges are within easy reach of major airports.  A few days in Cape Town, an Indian Ocean island retreat, or time spent with rare mountain gorillas in their natural habitat, could complement this trip, and may be added either before or after your safari.

What our clients had to say

…”the adventure from beginning to end was quite splendid!  I loved every moment and felt so well taken care of and safe.  The camps I visited were all unique and all spectacular…I look at my photos and relish in the wonderful memories of a magnificent time.  I feel so blessed to have had that opportunity.” 


“The most amazing trip!  All to your credit:  the preparation, choice of accommodations and locations, travel methods, arrangements for kids, etc., etc.  Could go on forever!  Your professionalism, knowledge and kind way with the kids was so appreciated.  We can never thank you enough.” 


“Our trip was absolutely spectacular. I have wanted to see the mountain gorillas for many years and was not disappointed.   Thanks so much for the gorgeous e-Book – special thanks to you, Lee, for taking shots of us at our gorilla viewings.  I still find it hard to believe that I was actually there. It was an unreal/surreal experience.  I might have to do it againJ… I always feel as if I’ve stepped into a dream.”
