WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Khaki Fever organised us the most exceptional honeymoon in Southern Africa. It was everything we had hoped for. We had excellent wildlife viewing, and enjoyed peace and quiet in the beautiful, luxurious lodges that Julie chose for us. Everything was just perfect.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Our party of seven first-time visitors to South Africa was privileged to have the expert help of Julie from Khaki Fever Safaris to craft our first ever safari in Africa. Julie ensured we had a most memorable and enjoyable experience of the African bush which we could easily have missed out on – including full day Kruger safaris with a very enthusiastic, knowledgeable, experienced guide. We saw many different species including the big 5 at close range in the most beautiful settings imaginable. Our lodge was superb with everything we could want, and with it’s own range of “plains game” which greeted us on arrival – a most wonderful introduction to our African stay. Our trip also included a Panorama Route Tour with the Magnificent Blyde River Canyon.  Many thanks Julie for organising a perfect trip in every way which totally exceeded our expectations!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Julie and the team at Khaki Fever Safaris did the most fantastic job of organising a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me and my friends when we visited South Africa. Julie understood our brief completely, and provided a great selection of offerings, tailored to our group and was very prompt at getting back to us with any questions we had. The option we chose was absolutely perfect – beautiful accommodation in a tranquil setting surrounded by so many gorgeous animals, delicious meals, fantastic drivers and guides and wonderful day trips to Kruger National Park and surrounding areas. Right from the moment we arrived in South Africa, we felt so welcome – from a handwritten note and gorgeous stainless steel drink bottle gift from Julie and the team, to her checking in along the way to make sure we were having a wonderful time. Thanks so much again – we can’t wait to come back again one day!

OBSESSED WITH

AFRICA & TRAVEL

 

What we do: At our very core, Khaki Fever believes in creating exceptional African adventures that are only yours. We’re operators “on the ground”, which means that we “live” Africa, we don’t simply sell it from afar. We offer a bespoke service, focused heavily on our clients’ individual needs, and believe that our first-hand experience, deep passion for the African continent, and knowledge of African travel, give us the upper hand when planning your unforgettable adventure.

In a nutshell: We offer a selection of carefully designed “off the shelf” itineraries, that serve as examples, and can be twisted and changed to suit your needs. They are simply a helpful starting point in creating your ideal adventure.

Email us directly to start your planning from scratch, or fill out our easy and quick Safari Builder form that’ll tell us exactly what type of experience you’re interested in, and what sights you want to see.

WHY CHOOSE KHAKI FEVER?

Safari operators are a dime a dozen in Africa, so deciding who to use can be overwhelming and confusing. Khaki Fever is a small company “on the ground” in Africa. By using Khaki Fever you avoid agents, who often times haven’t travelled Africa themselves, and simply add on a margin to increase your end cost. We believe in the personal touch and creating meaningful relationships with our guests, so that we can really understand what it is you want for your vacation.

We are allergic to the “tour group”, “one-size-fits-all” approach to creating your African adventure. We want to know what you want from your safari, and pride ourselves in providing the most authentic and personal experiences. We are also seasoned African travellers ourselves, and understand the confusing, complex and often scary aspects involved in planning a trip to Africa.

We are all about giving you fantastic value for your money, while creating an unforgettable adventure, that’s uniquely yours!

OUR VALUES

So many travellers we meet complain that they need a holiday after their holiday to Africa! In an effort to see as much as possible, many agents send their guests on whirlwind trips across Southern Africa, ticking off as many destinations as possible and jamming in far too many activities! This is not how we want our guests to enjoy our magnificent continent.

We want you to enjoy your holiday at a pace that suits you. We want to get to know you and know what makes you tick so that we can create your ideal African experience, in your ideal way. So, if it’s birding, or walking safaris, or cooking, or drinking wine – we want to know! We want you to unwind and relax in each destination, and absorb the full experience. After all, we believe that travelling is about getting to know other countries and cultures – not just see them.

UNIQUE

AUTHENTIC

Khaki Fever believes in authentic experiences. We are allergic to the “tour group” mentality and “one-size-fits-all” approach to travel. You will never find yourself on the tourist conveyer belt on a Khaki Fever adventure, and you’ll never feel that you’re in an overly commercial lodge or safari camp, or simply “following the herd”. Your trip is yours, and only yours. 

We strive to support smaller establishments that are owner-run and offer intimate and unique experiences. We have traveled thousands of miles to discover the most authentic lodges and safari camps that offer supreme comfort, tranquility, character, and charm. In the best possible locations.

We offer bespoke, hand-crafted itineraries for each of our clients. We focus on the details and on what our clients’ individual needs and interests are. We also believe that an incredible African adventure doesn’t need to cost you the Earth. No matter how much money you want to spend on a safari, we will guarantee extremely high value for your money. Africa can be affordable if you know where to go; and what’s better is, Africa can be affordable without sacrificing on comfort or experience – you just need to put in the time to unearth these gems – and we’ve done that for you!

The problem with booking trips to Africa from the outside is that you never really know what you’re getting, and unless you’re an African travel veteran, it’s very hard to know which the best locations, destinations and areas for the most authentic experiences are. We’re here to help you find and craft the ultimate African safari, without sacrificing on experience.

TIP

Most agents dish out stock-standard itineraries because they save time, and time is money, but it most likely won’t be the holiday of your dreams! It may take us a little longer to send you a quote, but that’s because we want to know what it is that YOU really want. We want to know what makes you tick, what your interests are, and what your vacation goals are. We take the time to craft the most unforgettable African adventure, that’s really yours.

AUTHENTIC ADVENTURES

We know Southern Africa like the back of our hand, and we’ve traveled it ourselves! We’re all about giving you an incredible, authentic African adventure, far away from the heavily-trodden tourist routes. We don’t believe in rushing you between destinations or packing your holiday full of activities that you may not even be interested in – some people might not actually want a cultural tour of the local village, they’d rather go on a privately guided birding walk. It’s your holiday, and you need to relax too!

We are a small, passionate, owner-run company that really does want to give you the most incredible experience of Africa – we’re passionate about our continent and we want to share it with you! You are not just a number to us, and we pride ourselves in offering you unique and inspiring adventures not seen on every other agent’s website.

EXCELLENT SERVICE

Khaki Fever also visits every property that we send our guests to, to ensure they adhere to our high standards. And we’re not talking about gold taps and 6-course meals, we’re talking about authentic and unforgettable experiences; value-for-money-luxury; excellent service; environmental sensitivity; and outstanding hospitality. Going through Khaki Fever also means you pay the same price as booking directly with the lodge or bush camp yourself. We get our commission from the properties, not from you. So, take the slog out of researching and planning your next trip, and let us do it.

WEATHER & SEASONS

Southern Africa experiences slightly different conditions during different seasons, and the “peak” visiting times can vary quite dramatically.  In general, this part of the world has two distinct seasons – a dry winter, and a wet summer – with some places being a lot drier or wetter than others. The one exception is Cape Town and the Garden Route, which has a Mediterranean climate with wet winters and hot, dry summers.

Winter in the bush is very mild. Days are warm and sunny (around 25°C/77F) and evenings and early mornings are chilly. You’ll need a jacket, scarf and closed shoes when on game drives. Summers are sunny and often humid (reaching 30-35°C/86-95F). Late September and October can be very hot and dry as it’s the tail end of winter, just before the rains arrive!
