Our Specialists Say

An active, adventurous family tracks and contributes to rhino conservation in unique areas of South Africa

This holiday gives the adults an opportunity to rest on The Motse’s island of calm in the Tswalu Kalahari in Central South Africa, to the North of Johannesburg. This is where you’ll stay in ultimate safari luxury and discover magnificent black-maned lions, track critically endangered desert black rhino and hunt for elusive pangolin or aardvark. Your kids will enroll in the Junior Ranger Programme, bringing the wildlife to life and a deep appreciation of the beauty of this entire eco-system. Flying to the stunning Rhino Ridge Lodge in Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park - the oldest proclaimed game reserve in Africa is an experience in itself. Once there, you’ll track the endangered White Rhino and learn about the Operation Rhino project which saved the few remaining white rhino from the brink of extinction, with numbers now reaching over 1,000 in the park.
