Conservation Corporation Africa (Cc Africa), Africa's Leading Luxury Safari Company, offers it's top ten reasons to explore South Africa this Fall.


In South Africa, September and October are like our March and April, mild days and crisp nights - with sighs of Spring appearing. Animals are out, babies are being born and a warm drink never tasted as good as it does on a cool African night in the bush...


¸ The vegetation is sparse, allowing for improved visibility while out on game drives - animals are much easier to spot

¸ Guests can opt for full-day game drives with delicious lunch picnics or hearty bush brunches, complete with firebowls, fuzzy blankets, bean bag seats and warm drinks

¸ Delicious breakfasts (porridge, rusks and fruit) are served before morning game drives, avoiding those 8am tummy rumbles

¸ The exquisite Eastern Cape aloes are in full bloom

¸ Game drive vehicles are equipped with warm blankets, fleece handwarmers and hot-water bottles to keep toasty until the morning sun comes out

¸ Toast the sunset with a hot toddy, mulled wine or Irish coffee

¸ Animals tend stay out in the open as they don't need stay out of the sun

¸ Bush and boma dinners are wonderfully romantic, sharing stories beside a roaring fire under an impossibly starry African sky

¸ Pinotage - South Africa's unique wine blend - is served on inviting sofas back at the Lodge, next to a crackling fire

¸ Guests can enjoy a steaming bubble bath, and dive into bed, where another hot-water bottle awaits underneath fluffy down duvets...
