The ideal family holiday destination.  When I think back to my childhood, my happiest memories are days spent together on family holidays.

The Self Drive Safari Issue

Our favourite affordable self drive safaris in South Africa. This month we had clients doing a self drive safari in Kruger. Being retired, and seasoned travellers, the small group had plenty of time to enjoy the slower pace of a self drive safari. It is one of the best ways to experience South Africa’s national parks if you have time, a
