Without question, South Africa is one of the best safari destinations in the world.

It offers the chance to see the ‘Big Five’ (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) and it’s possible to drive right into the heartland of Kruger or join rangers on guided drives and walks.

There is something about the opportunity to see these animals in the wild, a rare glimpse at nature at its finest. Beautiful granite kopjes (hills) pepper the south, the Lebombo Mountains rise from the savannah in the east, and tropical forests cover the north of the giant park.

A Lions tour is a special experience and the chance to not only see the greatest touring rugby team in the world but enjoy moments of a lifetime and make incredible memories. Whether that’s a lion on the prowl in the wilderness or a shark leaping along the coast, South Africa has a touch of everything and is not to be missed.
