Join us for the first tour of our BIG 5 Wildlife, Wilderness, and Adventure series tour as we explore the world’s top five animal kingdoms. We’ve partnered with renowned Australian wildlife artists, Gillie and Marc, to deliver five magnificent, unique hosted holiday adventures designed to raise awareness and support for endangered African wildlife. Golfers joining the tour can choose to either participate in the activities or tee off at golf courses amongst spectacular settings as we travel through the captivating African landscape.

This 14-night/15-day Southern African Wildlife adventure tour includes amazing locations, unforgettable adventures and luxury as we stay at five-star game lodges, hotels, and river cruising in prolific wildlife wilderness regions.

We start in the northwest of South Africa where we stay in the Welgevonden Game Reserve before making our way to Sun City. Then it’s on to Botswana, where we explore the southern Okavango Delta including game drives, a game viewing river boat cruise, and a bush walk with a wildlife ranger.

After Botswana, we move on to Zambia where we visit the majestic Victoria Falls. We travel to the border post where we cross into Namibia to board the Zambezi Queen for two nights of luxury river cruising and the ultimate water-based game viewing experience.

Let our experience hosts and local guides take you on a magical journey that will stay with you long after you come home.

Val, 2020 South Africa Golf Safari

Everything was excellent! Guides were friendly and full of interesting information, hotels were be, food was amazing and golf courses were exceptional.

Elaine, 2020 South Africa Golf Safari

Kruger National Park was definitely the most exciting experience Our tour guide, Nic, was the best tour guide!  All in all, South Africa was a great destination.

Elfie, 2020 South Africa Golf Safari

The entire vacation was memorable. The country was beautiful, the golf courses challenging and scenic; and Nic, the tour leader was exceptionally good. It is one holiday I haven’t stopped raving about.

Richard, 2019 South Africa Golf Safari

We had a great time all the courses were great. Our accommodation was excellent and all the people we played with were very friendly. Our host Nick was great.

Carolyn, 2019 South Africa Golf Safari

South Africa is a beautiful place to visit. The golf courses and accommodation were wonderful, a special mention to the guide Nic who handled everything put to him. Everyone that I know who has been to South Africa has enjoyed the trip, so do what you have been doing and keep up the good work!

Wendy, 2019 South Africa Golf Safari

In terms of the golf, all courses were first class. Landing near a crocodile at the Lost City 13th hole was a WOW moment. The views of the Indian Ocean at Pezula and Oubaai were spectacular. All accommodation was 4 or 5 star with very friendly staff and good food. The tour was a good mix of touring and golfing. I’d recommend it to any golfer/non-golfer couples.

Jeffrey, 2018 South Africa Golf Safari

We loved the game parks and were lucky to see so many animals in their natural environment. The golf courses were all good, particularly those around George which had fantastic views. Our guide (Nic) made our trip in many ways – the organisation of the days, the smooth handling of luggage, golf bags, check ins and fantastic information about what we were seeing.

Roslyn, 2018 South Africa Golf Safari

I would say to a friend that they should go and do it as it was a lot of fun and very well organized. The golf was great and the completion good with a well developed scoring and handicap system. The sightseeing and Kruger National Park was great with our encounter with an elephant – good for many stories over a drink for years to come
