Yes, your accommodation is covered. We know how important it is to have a luxurious, safe place to rest after a day of exploring the beauty of the wilderness. We wouldn't dream of sending you out into the wild without a cosy not-so-little nook to call your own, complete with all the necessary amenities and a plush bed fit for royalty!

Food and Drinks

Generally, on an all-inclusive safari, all your meals, snacks, water, tea and coffee, and selected beverages (normally local brand alcoholic drinks) are provided. You better believe that on an all-inclusive safari, we've got you covered from breakfast to dinner, snacks to sips. So, prepare for a food coma because we'll feed you a lot!

We're the logistics wizards that will ensure you won't be left high and dry.

Safari Activities

Yes, all standard game drives are usually included too, but some lodges offer bespoke experiences as optional extras that incur an additional cost. For example, just imagine drifting above the savannah in a hot air balloon, sleeping under the stars in a treehouse, or really getting to know Mother Nature by going fly camping. These offbeat adventures are just some of the extras on offer!

Spa Treatments

No, spa treatments are not included. But fret not – it's worth the splurge! Luxury lodges offer a sensational selection of lavish spa indulgences that will have you feeling like a million bucks. Also, these treatments are charged straight to your room, so you can ditch your wallet while getting your nails, face, or muscles pampered to perfection.

No, souvenirs are not included. Unfortunately, the addition of complimentary souvenirs in your all-inclusive safari package is about as likely as a giraffe riding a unicycle! Alas, you will have to rely on your purse and pockets to acquire those treasured trinkets and mementoes from your wild and adventurous journey. However, that being said, some luxury lodges do leave you a little something on your bed to welcome you...

No, gratuities are not included. These are "en vogue" in African culture, so don't be caught slipping when it comes to tipping! However, don't feel obligated either – you only tip if the experience left you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. And don't stress. We'll give you the lowdown on the going rate for gratuities before you jet off! Plus, we've compiled this guide to tipping to prepare you for what to expect.

About the author 

Michelle Welvering

Growing up, Michelle always wanted to become a world-renowned artist, a kickboxing-champion and an eccentric explorer – aka a Kickboxing Exploring Artist! After pursuing an education in Fine Arts and opening her own Kickboxing gym in Pretoria, an unexpected twist led her to a six-year stint as a travel consultant in South African tourism. She believes that all things happen for a reason and, driven by adventure, she was eager to find a more “wild” and cultural space to call home. This led her to wander the Western Cape coastline, fall in love with the city of Cape Town and, of course, her workplace, Rhino Africa.
