The Big Five—rhinoceros, lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, and leopard—are only a few of the animals you are likely to see on this conservation-focused South Africa safari.
You will learn how conservationists brought white rhinos back from near-extinction, then track rhinos with an expert guide. Your heart will race as you encounter the world’s fastest land predator at a leading cheetah refuge. You’ll assist with pangolin repopulation efforts in Africa’s only dry sand forest. And you’ll explore the Cape Floristic Region, home to 6,000 rare flowering plants found nowhere else in the world.
Nature walks and game drives—in the Western Cape, Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game Reserve, Phinda Private Game Reserve, and Kruger National Park—will acquaint you with a huge variety of stunning African game, local plants, and dazzling birds. The experiences you have in South Africa will inspire you for years to come.
