Our Safari South Africa 6 night adventure will give you a wonderful introduction into a Big 5 Safari experience in South Africa, taking in two very different but equally beautiful private game reserves. South Africa is a spectacular Safari destination and ideal family Big 5 Luxury Safari retreat.
Tuningi Safari Lodge Airstrip

Beginning at the Malaria Free Madikwe Game Reserve, north west of Johannesburg, a large and beautiful private reserve home to the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo) plus cheetah and the very rare African Wild Dog. You will stay in 5 star luxury at Tuningi Safari Lodge – a beautiful 8 suite lodge situated in a valley where elephant, rhino and hundreds of different buck wander past the lodge all day long. If you have kids, Tuningi is a also a wonderful option with children welcomed and looked after warmly.
Next it’s on to another beautiful, but very different private reserve – the Sabi Sands, which borders the world famous Kruger National Park. The Sabi Sand is arguably the best game viewing area in South Africa and as such is home to some of the finest safari lodges. Leopard Hills is no exception. You will be spoilt by every kind of luxury here, but more importantly the game experience you will have will be second to none. The Sabi Sand is renowned for sightings of ‘the Big cats’ – lion, cheetah and leopard – leopard being the most elusive and therefore exciting of the three!
Two different safari experiences, two luxury lodges, one fabulous African holiday.
