Cape Town is our home

So, now that you know that a Cape Town safari tour is the best, where should you go exactly? Rhino Africa is based in Cape Town, so we might be biased, but we believe no African holiday is complete without a stay here. From swimming with penguins near Boulders Beach, whale watching, going up the iconic flat-topped Table Mountain in a cable car, dining at some of the world's best restaurants, and sipping your way through the many wineries, you'll never get bored in our home city. Just look at some of our many Cape Town day tours we can add to your itinerary. Our Travel Experts are all well-travelled with a wealth of knowledge built up over the years since we booked our first guests' dream African holiday back in 2004. Today, this first-hand experience of our continent has given us global recognition, such as being named the World's Leading Safari Company at the World Travel Awards. 

Why would you trust anyone other than the world's best to plan your dream Cape Town safari tour? Our Travel Experts hand-pick the best game reserves and national parks to combine with your stay in Cape Town to give you the best of all Africa's wonders.

What destinations should I include in my Cape Town safari tour?

Well, South Africa is your oyster! There are so many excellent game reserves and national parks to discover.

Do you want to go on a self-drive tour to visit malaria-free game reserves? Then the Garden Route is the ultimate next stop for you. Or do you want to go on a classic Big 5 safari in the world-famous Kruger National Park? We know all the best luxury game lodges you should stay at in the exclusive private game reserves. 

Perhaps you want to combine a safari with adrenaline-fueled activities like white-water rafting? Victoria Falls is the world's largest sheet of falling water and is ideal for those adventure-seekers. But perhaps you want to delve deep into the belly of Africa's most remote, untouched landscapes? Botswana is for the true nature and wildlife lover, sparsely populated but teeming with wildlife. 

If you want to witness Mother Nature's greatest show, the Great Migration, then Kenya and Tanzania in East Africa are for you. And you can even add a stop in Rwanda or Uganda for a gorilla trekking expedition! 

As you can see, you could spend months on end exploring our beautiful continent! So, what are you waiting for? Contact our Travel Experts so that we can get to know you, all your preferences, and then start planning your tailor-made dream Cape Town safari tour today! 

Our Cape Town safari tours FAQs

Can you do a safari from Cape Town?

Yes, absolutely! In fact, we recommend it. You can even do a fly-in safari if you want to skip the bumpy car ride from the international airport to the lodge. Sit back and sip bubbly until you land on the game reserve If you prefer to take a road transfer or self-drive, the tarred roads are well-maintained, so it will not be a problem but will take longer to reach your safari destination.

Can you go on safari in Cape Town?

Definitely! There are a couple of Big 5 game reserves within easy reach of Cape Town. For example, two of the closest include Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, a three-hour drive away, and Gondwana Private Game Reserve, a four-hour drive away. We can organise a private road transfer to take you to your game lodge when booking with Rhino Africa. 

How much does a Cape Town safari tour cost?

Because all of our tours are tailor-made, the cost will differ depending on the duration of your stay, how many stops you have on your itinerary, activities you partake in, transport options you've chosen, and any inclusions or exclusions.

If you want to save on costs, South African safari destinations like the Garden Route's private game reserves are excellent options. We can also help plan a Kruger safari that fits into your budget. 

Can you do a day trip safari from Cape Town?

There are some nearby parks where you can see wildlife, but we always recommend that you get the authentic Big 5 free-roaming safari experience at one of the more established game reserves. 

What is the best time to go on a Cape Town safari tour?

Cape Town is a year-round destination. However, your experience will differ depending on when you visit and which destinations you’ll add to your itinerary.

Winter is usually a great time for safari as the bush is sparse, making it easy to spot wildlife. Cape Town is also generally quieter in winter compared to summer when everyone floods the city to take advantage of the sunny weather. 

But if you want to explore the city's hiking trails, wine farms, and many pristine beaches, then summer is for you. During this time, the bush is also lush and green and you get to see newborn animals. Shoulder seasons offer excellent rates and temperate weather.

Our Travel Experts can recommend the very best times for the very best experiences.
