In a testament to its allure, a recent article in Conde Nast Traveller's "The Best Countries in the World: 2023 Readers' Choice Awards" ranked South Africa an impressive 16th.

Embarking on a safari is a dream for many adventure seekers and wildlife enthusiasts, and there's one destination that stands out above the rest – South Africa. Let's explore why South Africa has rightfully earned its place as the top safari travel destination. From accessibility and affordability to year-round appeal, robust infrastructure, and unparalleled game viewing, this rainbow nation has it all.

Ease of Accessibility:

One of the key factors that sets South Africa apart is its excellent accessibility. With well-connected international airports such as OR Tambo International in Johannesburg and Cape Town International Airport, travelers can easily reach their safari destinations. This ease of access not only saves time but also contributes to a stress-free beginning and end to your safari adventure.

Affordability in Comparison to Other Countries:

Hylton Langley Safaris ensures that your dream safari doesn't break the bank, providing affordable packages without compromising on the quality of the experience. From accommodation to guided tours, South Africa allows you to witness the wonders of the wild without burning a hole in your pocket.

Year-Round Destination:

Unlike some safari destinations that have specific seasons for optimal wildlife viewing, South Africa is a year-round safari haven. Whether you visit during the dry winter months (May to September) when vegetation is sparse, or the lush summer months (October to April) when newborn animals dot the landscape, each season has its unique charm. Hylton Langley Safaris tailors experiences throughout the year, ensuring you witness the diverse facets of South Africa's wildlife.
