Last-Minute Safari

Not everyone can commit to booking months in advance, so you might need to be spontaneous when time allows for you to just pack and go. When it comes to safaris this is not usually an issue and arrangements can easily be made at the last minute.

The main issue with booking close to your travel date is availability at the camps and lodges, especially in South Africa, where a lot of properties get booked up months in advance. July, August and the Christmas period are always busy across the whole of Africa. To avoid disappointment, we would recommend booking your trip 9 to 12 months in advance. However, outside these peak times there is almost always space in the top camps, as there are cancellations and usually guests stay at a safari property for only a few nights before moving on to another. It’s just a question of finding the right available dates at different properties and making sure they fit together. There are also last-minute specials available for clients travelling within four months, ranging from free nights to discounted room rates.

If you are thinking about a last-minute safari trip, it’s definitely worth getting in contact with us as we will certainly be able to help you plan an incredible short-notice holiday!
