Malaria-free safaris in South Africa are a fantastic alternative to the Kruger National Park and other major safari areas. After all, you can enjoy all the thrills and experiences of an authentic Big Five Safari without compromising on the quality of game viewing, accommodation or health of very young or elderly companions.
Some of the most popular choices are still the private game reserves situated in the Eastern Cape. They’re a perfect extension to a Garden Route holiday, being located approximately one hour’s drive from Port Elizabeth.

Remember, you can easily combine this experience with spending time in Cape Town, as a simple one-hour-long flight separates these destinations.
