Dreaming of a luxury tented safari in Africa? Look no further, South Africa has everything you could wish for, and more. Voted the number one safari destination in 2014, a South Africa safari experience caters for every traveller, from family getaways, to romantic couples retreats.

The term “glamping” was coined a few years ago, and in case you are unfamiliar with the word, is referring to “glamorous camping”. As if invented for old world, “Out of Africa” style safaris, “glamping” in South Africa is a magnificent way to experience the raw thrill of the wilderness, and enjoy big game encounters, with all of the 5 star comfort you could dream of.
