Africa at it’s best!

In our opinion this beautiful region actually has three of the best safari parks in South Africa, each showcasing a different eco-system and therefore an abundance of different vegetation, birds, wildlife and scenery and you can experience all three on a tour with Clickety Click Safaris

Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park is mainly a savanna vegetation and is South Africa’s oldest game reserve and resident to not only Africa’s “Big 5” but also cheetah, African Painted dogs, hyena and a huge variety of plains game, birds and flora. It covers an area of about 96,000 hectares and the scenery is truly breathtaking!

The park has a number of different accommodations that Clickety Click Safaris can book for you ranging from permanent tents, where you self-cater, to a lodge where food is available or to a private lodge where you have your own chief and ranger!

She was so close! Time to go!

Next on our list of the best safaris parks is the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. As the name suggests this is a Wetland Park so is particularly green and lush, most of the year round. It was South Africa’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site and was declared so in December 1999.

The total area of the park is about 330,000 hectares, but from St Lucia itself you are at the gateway to the Eastern and Western Shores of the Park, which takes you through to the stunning golden beach of Cape Vidal.

Accommodation that Clickety Click Safaris can book for you in the park itself are log cabins in the dune forest next to the Indian Ocean at Cape Vidal, a private lodge in the Eastern Shores of the Wetland Park itself or a luxury lodge on the Westerns Shores!

Our next best safari park is Tembe Elephant Park! This park is sand forest and is therefore only available to those with a 4×4 vehicle, but of course Clickety Click Safaris is able to organize this for you.

Tembe Elephant Park is included in our best safari parks guide because it is home to the last remaining indigenous elephants of this region, which is also known as The Elephant Coast. If you have seen elephants in other parks, wait until you meet The Tuskers of Tembe. They are huge! The tusks on the older elephants are so large; they literally drag along the ground. If you are really lucky one or two may even visit you in your suite at night! A sight to behold, for certain!

Tuskers of Tembe

Accommodation in Tembe Elephant Park itself consists of luxury permanent tents in the community run lodge. Every comfort you can think of is included, the food is plentiful and divine and the hospitality from the management and staff is second to none! This is a must-stay location in KwaZulu-Natal.

  1. This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
