“Sitting at the airport in Johannesburg, on our way back home. Absolutely overwhelmed after our fantastic trip. Everything has worked perfectly throughout the trip, with the culmination this morning with a magic morning safari. We then got to see nine lions drinking water 2 m from the car and thus we got to see all the Big Five. Also (maybe brutal and raw) experience the hyenas just caught and newborn hippo. Our fantastic ranger Pieter stated that it was unique to see.
We are extremely happy with everything and grateful for everything you have organized for us. We will definitely return, as soon as possible, and within that we will warmly recommend both the destination itself and you / Upplev Sydafrika, as the travel agent

You can travel to South Africa all year round, but we recommend going September to May

Healthcare is good in South Africa. Even so we suggest obtaining a sound travel insurance before departure

As a EU and UK citizen, you will receive a 90-day tourist visa upon arrival in South Africa

To ponder before travelling:

The so-called “peak season” in December / January is very popular indeed and requires booking of accommodation, safaris, activities and restaurants well in advance.
