  • We visited three family members (parents and their 19 year old son) in Safari, which is about two hours and a quarter drive (185 km) from Cape Town. We ordered a "morning safari" that starts at nine. Upon arrival, we offered a welcome drink and then we ate a decent breakfast, like all guests. Around ten and a quarter, the safari started with an open truck that drove about 15 people, when the driver (in our case – a driver) is also the guide. The safari is called "Big Five" – which includes the 5 significant animals: elephant, lion, tiger, rhinoceros and buffalo (buffalo). Except for these animals were hippos, zebras, giraffes and antelopes. The trip is made over a large area and takes about 21/2 hours. While traveling, try to locate the animals and find them, approach them and take pictures. The Lions were in a separate and closed enclosure and seemed tired to junkies and not really essential. In all likelihood, but not quite the nature safari, note that this is a private reserve that the animals were brought to, however, this is what is closest to a safari that is reasonably far from Cape Town... After the Safari tour, guests are invited to a decent lunch and then home. The price is definitely expensive, especially in the cheapest South African terms-1,950 rand per single (almost 450 NIS).
