Spring Safari in South Africa

Time to Plan Your Spring Safari to South Africa

Planning a spring safari to South Africa is an occasion in itself, and gives you the opportunity to custom-create a life-changing getaway for you and your family or friends. For many travellers, the main objective is to see Africa’s elusive Big Five: the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo – an activity that’s widely considered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but it’s also possible to view the Big Seven.

Many feel a strong connection to the continent, as well as a deep appreciation for its diverse people and indigenous biodiversity. Regardless of your take on it, there’s no denying it’s a rare chance to see some of the world’s most beloved creatures in their natural habitat. Spring is the perfect time to visit, as it’s reasonably temperate, with moderate-to-low rainfall and typically clear skies.

Simply put on your hat and get up close and personal with elephants, lions, hyenas, jackals, warthogs, rhinos, zebras, antelope and over 750 bird and plant species.

Aquatic animal encounters. As a nature-lover, you can choose from an array of other animal encounters, including whale-watching and penguin-viewing cruises, where you’ll also have the opportunity to view bottlenose and humpback dolphins.
Cape fur seals and various indigenous birdlife are often also spotted on these encounters.

Township tours. The Addo Elephant Park does more than support conservation, it’s also been a hub of job creation for locals in the surrounding townships. During your stay, get a glimpse into township culture and shebeen life, while becoming more familiar with South African history, and the structural environments it has created today.

Adventure and relaxation. There are so many activities to enjoy in Addo Elephant Park and at our lodge. Find out more about our spa treatments, as well as

hikes, ziplining and tree-swinging programmes – and curate your perfect balance of adventure and leisure during your stay.
