About Go Africa Safari

Going on safari is often the main reason people plan a trip to Africa. We offer a lifetime experience – where you will be face to face with the big 5  and experience diverse african cultures.

All tours are customized and go to some places which normal tourists will never see.

Accommodation options vary from 4×4 roof top tents to luxury on-suite air-con accommodation – or a bit of both – to give you the full experience of Africa.

How we get around

There are options to choose from: 4×4 self drive or mini bus – you can combine the two. In the bigger cities we make use of luxury tour busses. 

We go through parks where there is only 4×4 access. Day trips can be arraigned if you are not comfortable in a 4×4.

All 4×4′s are fully equipped with roof top tents and all necessary camping equipment including bedding.

Domestic flights can be arraigned if your time is limited, but we prefer to drive to get the full African experience

Visas

As we will be visiting different countries on every tour, it is easier to get your visas as you go along. The border posts are an experience of their own. 

You will however need a valid passport with a minimum of six months before it expires.

Travel health

Some African countries have entry requirements and won’t let you in unless you have proof your’ve been vaccinated against yellow fever.

There is no vaccine for malaria, you should probably take anti-malaria prophylactics. From June to September the chances of malaria is very slim as there aren’t many mosquitoes in the winter. Make sure you take the correct repellent for dusk and dawn to be safe.

Visit your nearest travel clinic at least 6 weeks prior to the departing date to find out which vaccinations are required for Southern Africa from Malawi down to South Africa.

How it works

We offer a tour where you pay for what you choose. For example… If you prefer the accommodation that we arraign it is a set price, but there are upgrade options available. Transport mode prices vary with shared self drive 4×4, private 4×4 through to luxury mini bus.

The tours vary from 3 weeks to 6 weeks. We recommend that you take the 6 week tour if you can. This will take you from Cape town the southern most tip of South Arica through the Okavango swamps (Botswana) to Etosha National Park in Namibia. We also visit Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe as well as Kruger National Park on the way back.

You can connect with any tour in the different countries with with additional airfare costs.
