While you’re in South Africa, it would be a crime to spend all your time holed up indoors, once you’re strong enough to get out and about after surgery. So, I recommend that you make the most of your stay here and explore our beautiful country.

Recover Surrounded by Nature

Few experiences in life can compare with viewing majestic African animals in their natural environment. From the moment you wake on the first day of your adventure in the African bush, you’ll experience the call of birds and the snorting of hippos, as well as being ensconced in the sights, smells and sounds of Africa.

An early morning game drive to a nearby watering hole is sure to offer great viewing of thirsty animals enjoying a breakfast drink, while back at your luxurious yet rustically styled game lodge accommodation, you’ll be treated to a delectable breakfast yourself.

The rest of the day can be spent being pampered at an onsite spa – imagine an outdoor full body massage under cool shade -you could also enjoy a relaxing hike. Sunset game drives are a good way to see the day close before enjoying drinks and dinner around a fire, and discussing all the wonders you have seen with the members of your party.

After your dinner, if you’re feeling adventurous, you may wish to embark on a moonlit drive to experience some of the nocturnal wildlife up close and personal.

Experience the Best of Africa

From the Cape in the south right up to the far north, South Africa has a selection of luxury game lodges to welcome you into African paradise.

Apart from the traditional bush safari option, consider taking a luxury railway safari, going wine tasting or even indulging in some retail therapy!
