The African bush is breathtaking, wild, peaceful and vast. Arm yourself with your camera and a keen eye and you will be abundantly rewarded. While there are a lot of safari group tours to fixed destinations on offer, we at Africa Wild Safaris like to do things differently. We believe that personalised service is what creates the most memorable moments, which is why offer you the opportunity to tell us what you would enjoy and then we design the ultimate Bush Safari tailored to your lifestyle. That’s why when you go with Africa Wild Safaris you know you’re going to the most out of your very precious time away.
ABOUT THE SAFARIS/ADVENTURES

WHAT TOO LOOK OUT FOR
You’re in the African Bush. You will encounter lion, elephant, rhino's, leopard, warthogs and buffalo. Keep an eye in the sky for a giraffe or a vulture and listen out for the crazy laugh of the hyena. This is a birders paradise, take your pick and see the glorious and bizarre. Look to the rivers for hippos and crocodile. This is an area bursting with nature, get out your binoculars, pack up your camera and get ready to capture the wild-life unfold.
SOUTH AFRICAN WEATHER
Note: It would be nice to have a link to a daily weather website that can be on this page but that sits on the homepage given daily temperatures in Joburg/DBN/CT/PTA/Botswana/etc. I have listed the areas you hunt in and the seasonal (permanent temps)
South Africa boasts a wonderful climate with long hot summers and relativity short winters. A microcosm of the world, Southern Africa’s climates vary from Semi-tropical to Savannah lands, dry desert regions and rainy forest lands. Spring starts in August with summer extending from late September to March when autumn begins. Winter in South Africa stretches from May – July.
