The company’s safari vacation packages are some of the most affordable experiences around and offer those savings to individuals in a group travel setting, creating small, intimate journeys with high-end accommodation and a range of additional adventures that can be tailored to a specific budget. Many of these packages even include the cost of international airfare.

African Travel, Inc. is a trusted source for safari vacations. The company has been in operation for more than 39 years in Africa and the U.S. It has dedicated, experienced teams in Africa, Safari Specialists in the U.S., an extensive transportation fleet, numerous hotels, camps and lodges throughout its parent company, The Travel Corporation’s Africa-based affiliate companies.

In 2016, African Travel Inc. is offering a variety of affordable safari packages that combine some of the continent’s stunning cities with safari adventures in a variety of parks. 

Cape Town has been voted “one of the world’s most beautiful cities” and, when combined with a Big Five safari near Kruger the journey makes the perfect introduction to South Africa’s rich attractions. Start off with a helicopter flight along the country’s Atlantic seaboard, and take several days to explore “the Mother City.” Check out the bustling waterfront, the scenic Cape Peninsula, ride the cable car to the top of Table Mountain, or visit Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. Guests can fill the days in whatever way they like.

Next, fly off to a private game lodge adjacent to Kruger National park for wildlife-viewing. 

Spectacular South African Safari

Experience the unique highlights and destinations of South Africa on this seven-night tour. Guests will enjoy the cosmopolitan culture, gourmet cuisine and evocative history of Cape Town and fill the day with activities such as whale-watching off the Cape of Good Hope, summiting the world-famous Table Mountain or indulging in multiple wine tastings in the gorgeous Franschhoek Valley. The city stay is followed by a safari experience at the renowned Kruger National Park.

This safari vacation explores Cape Town’s scenic beauty, culture and world class restaurants. Spend four nights at The Commodore in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in majestic Cape Town with Table Mountain as your backdrop. Then, you will be able to relax at the Bongani Mountain Lodge and enjoy its surrounding spectacular landscape and wealth of wildlife in this Big-five Game Reserve on the southwest border of the Kruger National Park.

The Botswana Winged Safari Vacation is full of wildlife viewing, pristine reserves and intimate camps with all of the comforts of home. In addition to game viewing, there is bird watching in the Moremi Wildlife Reserve located in the heart of the Okavango Delta as well as also flightseeing to Chobe National Park.
