Why South Africa?
Often described as a world in one country, South Africa is a must - especially for first time Safari-goers. It encompasses enormous geographical, cultural and biological diversity; ranging from beautiful beaches along the warm Indian Ocean and the cold Atlantic Ocean, to rugged craggy mountain ranges with celebrated vineyards.
Further inland one finds rolling grassland plains and montane and coastal forests, semi-arid and desert landscapes, and savanna woodland which accommodates game-rich reserves, such as the world-renowned Kruger National Park and adjoining private game reserves.
Cultural and historical diversity, ease of access and well-developed infrastructure add to the appeal of South Africa being the ultimate African destination.

Kruger National Park
Hylton and Margaux have a soft spot for the Kruger National Park. Both worked extensively in the park, and Margaux even lived inside the reserve for several years. Because of this, few guides know the intimate secrets and special haunts of the wildlife as they do. This world-renowned park is a haven for numerous large mammals and birds, and with its vast size spreading across more than 6 million acres, the ever-changing landscape of this wilderness area is a must-see. Due to the ease of accessibility to the Park, and with numerous top private safari camps to choose from, it is a destination that certainly won’t disappoint.

Sabi Sand Game Reserve
As one of the oldest private game reserves in South Africa, the Sabi Sand shares its borders with the Kruger National Park. This allows animals to move freely between the two. The Sabi Sand Reserve consists of numerous privately owned game properties that operate collectively to ensure the conservation of animals and the environment. There are various private luxury lodges and properties for guests to choose from, and because of years of professional game viewing practices, the safari experience and photographic opportunities to be had in the Sabi Sand can be seen as some of the best in the world - especially when it comes to leopard viewing.
The Kalahari desert is a large semi-arid, sandy savanna, that starts in the Northern Cape province, close to the Botswana Border. As a safari destination, it offers something completely unique and very different from any other safari region in South Africa, and it is a great add-on experience for any guest in search of solitude and scenic beauty. With grass-covered, red sand dunes that stretch for miles and miles, guests will be mesmerized by the resilience of the rare and elusive animals that survive in this incredible landscape. Margaux lived and guided here for two years of her life, and this is yet another magical destination she would love to share with you.
