  • Whilst we are in this ‘new normal’ for a little longer, we’ve collated three of our favourite Virtual Safaris from South Africa so that you can get up close with some of the world’s most magnificent animals from the safety of your sofa. The ideal safari taster before you go on that dream safari in the near future!

    It is also the perfect viewing with the kids too and great fun trying to get a glimpse of the Big Five and much more.
