High season and especially the peak season in December / January is very popular and require bookings of accommodation far in advance. Low season from May to August usually offers better prices on accommodations.


Experience the most exciting safari in one of the private game reserves near Cape Town, in the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal (in eastern South Africa), Madikwe Game Reserve (in northwestern South Africa) or in the world’s oldest and largest game reserve, Greater Kruger National Park (in northeastern South Africa). Over the years, Upplev Sydafrika has been diligent and visited about 100 lodges in the above-mentioned areas. We are happy to share our experiences and assist in bookings for safari. We have listed the safari lodges that we recommend within each safari destination.


We also assist in booking safari and tours in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia. Read more about the destinations under “Safari” in the menu.

South Africa has a lot to offer in terms of activities. Upplev Sydafrika have put together activities to do in regions or hubs you will pass during your trip.



Upplev Sydafrika’s passion for food and wine, along with our many years on location in South Africa, gives us unique knowledge and ability to keep ourselves and our travellers, updated regarding restaurants, wineries and activities, etc. We happily communicate the current local trends in gastronomy and wine with our clients, and today between ourselves, we dare to say that we can indeed tailor the best and most value for money experience for you as a traveller.



South Africa is, with its ideal climate, the perfect destination for golf travel and the country offers fantastic world-class golf courses. You will find all categories of courses; sandbelt, links, forest and coastal paths, in fabulously beautiful surroundings. As golf tourism is relatively unexploited, the well-kept and scenic courses seldom get crowded. Select one or more golf destinations and we hand-pick carefully selected top courses, some of the best in the country.


Food and Wine

As a client to Upplev Sydafrika, we are happy to help you book your restaurants on location and you can also take part in our latest restaurant recommendations. We suggest fantastic vineyards of different character. We also help to arrange private dinners / events / wine tastings according to wishes and needs. Please note that during the peak season (Christmas and New Year) it is recommended to book restaurants for dinner (and sometimes lunch) every evening well in advance.


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.
