“A brilliant tour operator for bespoke South African adventures: you set the parameters, they'll plan your perfect trip”
Accommodation in South Africa runs the whole gamut: boutique city hotels, friendly guesthouses, charming B&Bs, glamorous villa rentals, even beautiful tented lodges and quirky treehouses.
We've reviewed many of these in extensive detail, and you can request their inclusion in your itinerary. Otherwise, be guided by our operator, who will recommend properties to suit your budget and preferences.
Here are the things we loved on our many collective trips (most i-escape staff have been at least once):
Babies (0-1 years), Toddlers (1-4 years), Children (4-12 years), Teens (over 12)
Whether you want a self-drive or a more guided experience, take a look at our sample itineraries for inspiration. These can be booked as they are, or tweaked to your requirements (different hotels, shorter duration etc).
Most itineraries include an internal flight (which can be booked for you) to an airstrip in one of the game parks; you're transferred to the lodge and all game drives are organised for you (the driver acts as a guide, too). Note that the guide prices exclude internal flights, since these costs vary, but your quote will include them.
If you're just visiting Cape Town - Garden Route - Addo, you can easily self-drive: the roads are safe, and Brits will be pleased to know you drive on the left.
