For nearly 20 years, Exclusive Getaways has been a trusted name in South African travel and safari tours. With an unflagging passion for South Africa’s natural and cultural heritage, Exclusive Getaways is the destination specialist of choice for luxury travel in and around South Africa.
“For many travellers, a South African safari is a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” says Exclusive Getaways’ Operations Manager Sandra Wewege. “As such, we feel it’s crucial that our clients enjoy only the very best that South Africa has to offer. Our long-standing relationships with our suppliers, as well as our experience in the South African travel and safari industry, means that Exclusive Getaways is uniquely positioned to provide an exceptional, bespoke safari travel service to our clients.”
Bespoke safaris in South Africa are an Exclusive Getaways speciality, and there is plenty of choice when it comes to choosing where to go. “When most people think about safaris in South Africa, the first place they think of is the Kruger Park,” continues Wewege. “While the Kruger National Park offers excellent game viewing and a number of fantastic luxury lodges, particularly in the Sabi Sands, there are many other places where one can enjoy a Big Five safari in South Africa.”
For families travelling with small children, a safari in a malaria-free area might be more attractive. The Eastern Cape boasts a number of National Parks and private game reserves which present a variety of malaria-free safari options to visitors. “The Eastern Cape is an excellent safari destination. In addition to pristine and richly diverse game parks as well as wonderful safari accommodation and activities, the province is also very accessible. A safari in the Eastern Cape is the perfect add-on to a self-drive up the Garden Route and many of the parks and reserves are a relatively short drive from Port Elizabeth airport,” says Wewege.
Similarly, another excellent big game safari park is the Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa’s North West Province. Closer to Gauteng, those wishing to experience a South African safari in style may choose to book accommodation in the Pilanesberg National Park or the beautiful Welgevonden Nature Reserve.
“Combined travel experience of over 100 years and expert on-the-ground knowledge sets Exclusive Getaways apart from the crowd,” says Wewege.
