A South African safari is a wonderful travel experience, especially for wildlife enthusiasts and photographers (even amateur photographers). For active boomers, a safari is a great way to mix a bit of adventure with a bit of relaxation along the way. Our luxury South African safari was the trip of a lifetime.
