South Africa Safaris & Tours

South Africa is one of the world’s most varied destinations. From the classic safari country of Kruger National Park to the stately ‘mother city’ of Cape Town; from the snow-sprinkled heights of the Drakensberg to the parched red dunescapes of the Kalahari; from the gorgeous Winelands around Stellenbosch to the paradisiacal beaches of the Garden Route – South Africa is a true all-rounder that attracts more than its fair share of repeat visitors.

We offer a wide range of tours, including Group Tours and Private Safaris, covering both well-known sites and hidden gems, giving you an authentic safari wildlife experience. The most difficult decision of course, is choosing when to go. Read More

More Information

The popular period for visiting South Africa is from May to September. This is the Dry season and animals congregate around waterholes and rivers. This is, in fact, the low season for tourism.

From October to March, this is the best time for bird watching, as a number of migratory birds are present. Just keep in mind that it can get very hot in December, January and February, and parks can become crowded during the main school holidays in December.

South African school holidays should be avoided. The main holidays are in December. It is winter, so the mornings and nights are cold. May and September are wonderful because it is less cold and, especially in September, the wildlife viewing is excellent.

Our destinations are carefully selected to give memorable experiences through exciting encounters with animals and nature. This results in tours aimed to give the best wildlife opportunities at the destination, accompanied by our expert safari guides and always spending as much time as possible in nature.

With the philosophy, “take memories; leave only footprints,” our priority is to protect and preserve each unique destination for its people, wildlife, and future travelers by finding meaningful ways to reduce our environmental footprint.

When you embark on a tour of South Africa with Odyssey Safaris, you get insights and wildlife interactions that turn your once-in-a-lifetime journey into a truly one-of-a-kind vacation experience.
