Safari in South Africa

All the holiday homes of Homes Of Africa are located in the safari-capital of South Africa, Hoedspruit. All the villas are located at the boarder of the world famous Kruger National Park. This location represents endless possibilities for Game Drives and Safaris and is the perfect spot for wildlife lovers. Harmless wild animals, such as zebras, giraffes, monkeys, warthogs, kudus, impalas, etc., have been known to interact with people frequently. It’s possible that whilst you enjoy your breakfast in the garden or whilst your walking around the villa, you get some company from one of these beautiful animals. Safari in the back of your garden!

Endless safari opportunities

Having a ranger accompanying you on your safari is a possibility. Many of the wildlife reserves offer “game-drives”: the ranger can guide you into your search for the Big 5! This means using a safari truck to drive through the South African bush to search for wild animals. The ranger utilizes his knowledge to spot together the animals and to provide some interesting information. Taking a guided safari tour by foot through the Big 5 area is also possible and never fails to turn into an exciting and unforgettable experience.
