South Africa

Tailor-made Luxury Travel to South Africa

Are you looking at traveling to South Africa? Safaris at private game lodges, beach, coastal and wine-country vacations are great ways to experience everything this beautiful country has to offer.

ABOUT THE DESTINATION

South Africa is a developed, relatively advanced and well-known country on the southern tip of the African continent. It is an excellent destination for luxury safari travel, offering a richness and diversity in nature almost unparalleled, plus some renowned conservation success stories and many high-quality accommodation choices.

WARM, RICH AND VARIED TRAVEL EXPERIENCES

On safari, some of the closer large wildlife experiences and higher standards of safari lodging in South Africa will be found in the private game reserves of the greater Kruger area, notably the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, as well as further northward in the Timbavati region. These area also form part of the greater Kruger National Park that is widely known around the world.

A trip to these private South African reserves can also be combined with beach and coastal vacations during the African summer to create an unforgettable overall travel experience. The city of Cape Town - together with its surroundings - is famed as one of the most scenically appealing cities of the world, and was named the number 1 city to visit by the New York Times. It is built on a peninsula between Table Mountain and the shimmering Atlantic Ocean, and it is an impressive city to visit that simply never disappoints our guests. Further eastward, the untouched coastal beauty and clean, fresh oceans along the Whale Coast and Garden Route should also not be missed. Tribal traditions, ancient rock art and cultural heritage await you in KwaZulu Natal and the mountainous Cederberg and southern Kalahari regions of the northwestern Cape.

THE BEST TIME TO TRAVEL TO SOUTH AFRICA?

That depends on what your main priority is. The best time of year for safari travel and wildlife viewing in South Africa is during the winter months between May & October, although we should point out that seasonal changes are not as dramatic here as they are in neighbouring Botswana.

The best time of year to travel to Cape Town and the Cape coastal areas is definitely during the South African summer - the area is in it's prime and unbeatable at this time of year - ideally between January and April. This makes for a great escape from the northern hemisphere winter, and the South African game parks are still good at this time of year.

We have arrived back safely to Bangkok. We want to personally thank you and your team at Robert Marks for recommending and helping to organize one of the best trip of our lives. We both fell in love with Kenya and Tanzania and was sad to leave. Mahali Mzuri and Mnemba Island were well over our initial expectations.

We are back in Sydney, I'm not back at work until Wednesday, Absolutely amazing - I don't know where to start. I would rattle on email so perhaps we can chat when you are free. Happy to give you feedback, suffice to say we will be booking all future African trips with you.

We had a fantastic time, everything ran very smoothly. The internal flight times changed (I think for every single one!) but the guides knew what was going on and had us there at an appropriate time for each. Thanks for all your hard work organising this magical trip for us.

The safari was a success and the wife was deeply satisfied. the game in Masai mara was great, the kindness of the people was amazing.

Thanks to you, your expertise and your attention to my needs, this trip was the best of my life! and i had fabulous trips in my life already, but this one surpassed them all. there was not a single hiccup with accommodation or transportation. nothing. flawless!

The trip was well organised and i am happy i finished it with Namibia. Wow!

Karen, France

We had a simply wonderful trip especially in Botswana. Super accommodation, wonderful guides. Everything was so organised with the food and we were a little worried that we might not have much to eat as vegans, but everyone was very accommodating and we ate so very well! :-).

Sebastien, Vancouver

I'm very impressed by every detail, particularly the seamless guidance from the moment I landed Nairobi. This took away my biggest concern with safety. Thank you very much again Catherine for all efforts made. Africa now becomes a preferred option for our family holiday. I'm sure I'll need your help again not too long.

F. Y. - Hong Kong


Thanks for the follow up. We had a great time and the organisation all went very smoothly, so many thanks. The private plane charter was a big success – the kids loved it. And very swish service etc. – all very impressive, felt rather special and was a wonderful start.

John, Singapore


Hi Stacey, Thank you for this! And thank you for this amazing trip, we can't quite believe it, it's been so magnificent so far and we are totally in love with South Africa, it's been incredible. And these places!!! We've toasted a few times to you so far, this is amazing!!!

Gen, Hong Kong


Hi Rob, My Fiancee and I had a wonderful time on the trip. All of the camps you chose for the safaris were top notch and we saw pretty much everything (4 of the big 5). Thanks again for you help and setting up a most memorable trip.

Kenneth, Hong Kong

Thank you so much for your email and for organising this trip for us.

Yes everything went smoothly and me and my buddies, we had a great time. Thanks for your help in arranging this trip. It was fantastic and memorable!

Joey, Singapore

Ol Donyo was really magnificent. The managers of the camp - Shaun Mousley and Amy both are very warm and friendly. They made us feel very welcomed and we thoroughly enjoyed staying at Ol Donyo. The camp is on par in terms of standards with Singita group, in terms of quality of their accommodation and service.

Joey, Singapore



We had an absolutely wonderful time in SA! Thank you for all your arrangements!

Peggy



The tour you organised to Cape Point was excellent and our guide for the day, Jerry, was very engaging and knowledgeable.

Jeremy



Our recommendation for first timer safari goers is that 5 days is an absolute minimum to go for.

Karen, Singapore


We were very happy with the whole trip and are planning to visit different lodges in Africa. Next up we are looking at Tanzania for next year and we think it will likely be a yearly trip for us to Africa!

Karen, Singapore


The feeling at Mara Plains was really good. The managers were great, a lovely couple, and the guides were really good as well.

Nick, Hong Kong



Everything went really, really well with the whole trip. In hindsight the highlights were the Gorillas and Victoria Falls.

Nick, New York



Botswana - The safari was incredible!

Daniel G

The safari turned out to be the absolute highlight of our trip.

Thank you so much for recommending Sabi Sabi. It was perfect for us. We loved every minute of the safari experience and each day saw The Big 5 - and more!! It was a truly remarkable experience.

Linsey

Thanks Stacey, we had a great time, everything went very smoothly. By far the easiest trip we have taken. Kim was there to meet us in Johannesburg and everything went very smooth from there, pickups, flights, reservations, etc. Ate way too much, saw lions on a kudu hunt, leopard finishing off a little duiker, rhino, elephant, impala, bush bark, water buffalo, wildebeest, nyla, etc. Very sad to leave!

Robert, Malaysia


Suffice to say we had a great time! The organisation worked as clockwork, and all thanks to you for organising it perfectly. The two guides we had were excellent and we saw the Big 5 in both Tarangire and the Serengeti.

S. S. - Malaysia


We really had a fantastic time. Thanks for putting together such a great itinerary for us, we really were impressed with the quality of the itinerary that you put together for us.

Ray - Hong Kong


Little Tubu was our favourite of the three camps we stayed at but even the others were also really good. Small camp and far away from everything, really great. Suggestions from Robert Mark were very good and the staff at the camps looked after us well. Very exciting.

Danny Ng - Hong Kong



Spent 10 Days in Kenya Oct 2014, had a great time, everything was superb, thanks a lot RMS for organizing everything. Tarryn & Glen

Tarryn & Glen - Dubai

We utilized Robert Mark Safaris for a recent adventure holiday to Serengeti & Ngorongoro. It had always been on our bucket list. Robert Mark Safaris were fantastic in ensuring that out trip went seamlessly, and we were especially pleased with the detail that they placed on our personal requests. They also provided some great recommendations that added special memories to our trip. Thanks again, we will be back.

Steven Rowe - Australia

Amazing experience that took us to two different safari lodges.

With plenty of opportunities for hiccups along the way the whole trip ran very smoothly and was the trip of a life time. I highly recommend Robert Mark Safaris if you are looking for a hassle free, safari experience.

David S - Hong Kong



Our expectations were high, but the reality topped all preconceptions.

Dave

A group of my friends and I were looking for an African Adventure when we were recommended Robert Mark Safaris, and we were not disappointed. We had the most fabulous tour ever - Initially we spent a week in the beautiful Cape Town. The service we received from the Robert Mark Safaris team were second to none and we could not be more thankful. Thanks again, and we cant wait to return!

Pierre V - Australia


We could hear the elephants walking through the camp at night, hyenas cackling away close by and even hippos as they left the water to graze in the cool of the evening.

Fonty Z


Elephants were a frequent visitor around our tent particularly one which liked to sleep beside our tent, buffalo tended to wander past and numerous small animals delighted us with their antics.

Bev P



Mombo is one of the premier camps in the Okavango Delta. Food, accommodation and service are absolutely top class.

M Witul



E - for excellent, excessive and exceptional.

Eud - Hong Kong


Excellent Trip! King's Pool will be first on our list for our next visit to Botswana.

Spencer L



Our entire experience at Chitabe was first-class. The wildlife we were able to see in a few short days was unbelievable.

Paharlan


"Abu Camp on the Okavango Delta in Botswana is surely at the top end for luxury African safari camps… There is an incredible amount of game to be viewed… Finally, the great attraction of the camp is the Abu elephant herd."

Gordon D

My Boyfriend and I were very happy with the service provided by Robert Mark Safaris on our visit to the South Africa - we went to the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and Cape Town They made sure we were taken care of the whole way through and even planned ahead of us to make sure our activities were scheduled according to the weather conditions. Two Thumbs up!

E Lim - Singapore

I was fortunate enough to get to spend two nights at Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge. What a great Experience. Sabi Sabi is a top class reserve and the game viewing was brilliant. Robert Mark Safaris did a great job & the lodge itself is luxurious and modern and a really nice place to return to after sundowners and a night drive!
