There's no denying the facts about South Africa - the country is filled with amazing wildlife, abundant opportunities to spot the Big Five, jaw-dropping scenery and a rich culture.
Yet, there are some things about this country that you have to experience for yourself, and a South African safari is the best way to do it.

1. South African Safaris are Easy
International travellers can't go wrong when they visit South Africa. The exchange rate is favourable for visitors from most countries and you'll find basic necessities are reasonably priced. Locally-produced goods are cheap and easy to come by, especially artisan eats, arts, and crafts.
South Africa has a solid infrastructure with good tar roads near the main cities. Car hire, domestic and charter flights are readily available, and you'll have no trouble finding accommodation of all kinds from camping to high-end fully-inclusive safaris.
Once done with your world-class safari experience, you can jet off to other destinations in the country with ease. Glorious beaches, vibrant cities, cultural iniquities, stunning geographical treasures and other African hotspots are within easy reach.
2. Hospitality in South Africa is Amazing
South Africans hold guests in very high regard and will make you feel right at home. South Africans of all races are welcoming, laid-back people with friendly attitudes and a high desire to please; and you will encounter a diverse range of cultures (and wildlife) while enjoying a South African safari experience.
Whether you book a simple suite or an all-the-bells and whistles safari lodge, you'll experience the same level of unpretentious treatment. It's natural for your South African hosts to welcome you as part of the family and bend over backwards to ensure you have an unforgettable time during your stay.
