Many visitors to South Africa want to tick a safari off their bucket lists. Visiting one of the big national parks up north is first prize for a real African safari, but if you’re not staying for a long time you might be looking for safari accommodation right near Cape Town. Good news! There are a number of places under three hours from the City Centre where you can view some of Africa’s most impressive wildlife. They’re close by, malaria-free, and small enough to ensure you see a lot of wildlife.
