Autumn safari in South Africa

7th October 2011 Print
Rissington Inn

Autumn in England is spring in South Africa and an excellent time to go on safari. And springtime in the Kruger National Park is when numerous new-born babies can be spotted including impala, elephant, buffalo, hippo and many more. The spring temperatures in South Africa are comfortably warm – in the low to mid 20s – and prices are also attractive prior to the Christmas and New Year holiday period.

Fleewinter has created an ideal week-long autumn escape for October and November costing from just £1180 pp (2 sharing), including flights.

The 7 night Affordable Kruger & Panorama self-drive holiday provides a chance to explore the southern and northern Kruger regions, with accommodation located outside the park allowing you to not only enjoy day trips into Kruger, but also to explore the beautiful surrounding area.

The first three nights are spent at the Rissington Inn, a 4-star guest house with just 14 bedrooms and two family suites, on 10 acres of land and just 40 minutes from the southern section of the Kruger. It is also an ideal base to explore the surrounding Panorama Route.

The second half of the week is spent with three nights staying at Sefapane Lodge in Limpopo Province which is just two minutes’ drive from the Phalaborwa Gate of the north section of the Kruger.

The lodge is comprised of 31 fully-serviced rondavels (African huts) and 18 three and four star luxury self-catering safari houses. There are also two swimming pools for a relaxing swim after a day on safari spotting the Kruger’s big game.

The final night is spent at Kings Walden in Tzaneen – a lovely sub-tropical location ideally located between Sefapane and Johannensburg.

The price of (from) £1180 pp (2 sharing) includes international flights, car hire, 7 nights’ accommodation as detailed above, safari activities as per itinerary and some meals.
