Lonely Planet has named South Africa one of the best value destinations for 2015.
Africa experts Bench International have noted a steady increase in bookings to the destination in recent times due to ease of booking the popular destination.
Bench General Manager, Martin Edwards had this to say, “Budget conscious travellers will get more bang for their buck in destinations where rates are priced in South African Rand as opposed to the US Dollar. Compared to other safari destinations, South Africa also has much better infrastructure so getting to safari camps is easier and cheaper, and rates are lower because most camps have access to established power grids and water systems. Lastly, South Africa has many other types of experiences to enjoy so you can incorporate a few expensive nights on safari into a broader holiday where you are paying regular prices to visit cities, wine regions, coastal towns, mountain ranges and beaches.”
Bench has recently handcrafted an itinerary that has seen great interest in recent times. ‘Splendours of Southern Africa’ incorporates 4 free nights, as well as all meals whilst on safari. Travelling through South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Botswana, holidaymakers will visit 3 different game reserves, visit Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River, and wind down in Cape Town and the scenic Winelands. This 21-day itinerary is priced from $7,940 per person sharing and offers luxury accommodation, wildlife viewing, cultural visits, and diverse scenery.
