Safaris > South Africa

South Africa lives up to its motto, “The World in One Country.” Its diversity is reflected in long-established Zulu, Ndebele, Xhosa, Sotho and Afrikaner cultures (to name only a few), to which more-recently arrived cultures from places as disparate as England, India, Malaysia and Greece can be added. There are 12 official languages in South Africa, and there is a push to make sign language a thirteenth one.

Likewise, South Africa’s natural beauty has the best of what the world can offer: brooding cold-water coastlines with penguins; sunny warm-water, white-sand beaches with coral reefs; a ski area; expansive deserts and deep forest; lush farmland; and, of course, an extensive network of well-managed, wild parks and preserves where one can still see “The Big Five” – rhino, elephant, lion, leopard, and cape buffalo.

The following itineraries are meant to help your safari planning. Since 1974, we at Cowabunga Safaris have done many, many kinds and variations of safaris to South Africa. Do you want something more upscale? Do you want something more rustic and participatory? If you have a different safari in mind, wish to stay longer, or want to travel to other parts of the continent, tell us. We can make it happen.

The safaris below are in PDF format. To view them you will need the Adobe Acrobat viewer/plugin.
