Malaria-free Safari in South Africa
South Africa has a fantastic offering of national parks and reserves known the world over for unrivaled big game viewing and luxurious accommodation. And what’s more, you can enjoy a world-class safari here without the worry of malaria.
While most people tend to head to the Kruger National Park, the country’s largest and best-known game reserve (which is unfortunately in the malaria zone), there is a range of excellent game reserves and parks in malaria-free areas that offer superb game-viewing, beautiful scenery and a minimal risk of malaria.
The Eastern Cape provides a wealth of fantastic game reserves and parks to explore, offering chances to spot the Big Five, cheetah and wild dogs, and is close enough to combine with a trip to the beautiful city of Cape Town.
Situated just north of Port Elizabeth and soon to be one of the largest national parks in South Africa, the Addo Elephant Park offers visitors not only the Big Five (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, and leopard), but also several exciting activities to boot, such as horse-back safaris through the wilderness.
The Madikwe Game Reserve on the edge of the great Kalahari Desert is home to over 8,000 animals, while the Pilanesberg National Park is a beautiful reserve set right next door to the famous Sun City and centred around a massive hippo and croc-filled lake.
Kenya Family Safari
Wildlife-packed game reserves, pristine white sandy beaches, noble Maasai warriors, and once-in-a-lifetime activities… Kenya packs a punch when it comes to an unforgettable African safari.
From breath-taking landscapes that range from Kakamega’s rainforests and enticing Indian Ocean beaches to the undulating rolling grasslands of the Masai Mara and the arid deserts of the Jade Sea shores. A plethora of excellent game reserves, such as Tsavo National Park (best for lions, elephants, leopards and the famous wildebeest migration) and Amboseli National Park for its absolute beauty are must-visits, while the selection of superb lodges and bush camps that are available cater for every taste.
Spend an unforgettable safari in Kenya with your family, exploring the wilderness on guided bush walks led by red-robed Maasai warriors, tracking big game and cats on guided game drives through the wilderness; hand-feeding giraffe at the well-known Giraffe Manor or floating over the vast plains on a hot air balloon safari.
