Best of South Africa Travel

Let us introduce Best of South Africa Travel to you, who have 40 years' travel experience and are truly passionate about this awe-inspiring country. More importantly, they will put together a bespoke itinerary so you can remove the holiday-admin from your life, get to know the heart of this beautiful country and reach the best places whether you are going solo, as a couple or the ultimate family adventure

If you feel like you are stuck in a bit of a rut when it comes to going back to the same destinations every year or you really want to create a WOW (you are the best mother in the whole world) holiday with your family, then step forward Best of South Africa Travel which is a UK based boutique travel operator specializing in tailor made (mid to high-end), travel itineraries and experiences in South Africa with family travel becoming an increasing focus.

Best of South Africa Travel was founded by Zimbabewean born, Ash Jarvis, who grew up in South Africa from the age of 10, before moving to the UK just over twenty years ago so you can be sure that your trip will be handled by somebody who has an insider knowledge of the best places to go.  Her team have 40 years’ travel experience between them and will happily open up their little black books to ensure you reach the best places and don’t waste precious holiday time researching  where to go.

And it’s those extra details that makes all the difference  in our book – yes of course they sort the flight, car or hotel but what really sets them apart is their knowledge of the best rooms at each hotel, the game parks offering the most reliable cheetah or wild dog-spotting, their recommended local fizz to sip whilst sitting at one of the many sunset lookouts across the region (now that really is important) or where to go if you are honeymooning or travelling without the kids.  Ash and her team mainly deal with independent hotels, lodges and home stays so you also know that are staying in a truly local environment and getting to know the heart of the country.

If safaris are your thing, you are in safe hands as Ash is extremely knowledgeable on this topic, whether it be self-drive or exclusive lodges, plus she can also point you in the right direction for the best places for scuba dive, hike, sand board, kayak, fish as well as which wineries to visit if that is more your kind of sport. As a mother of two kids, Ash is also fully aware of what floats the juniors’ boat when it comes to putting together an awe-inspiring and memorable holiday.

As you can well imagine,  Ash and team are hugely passionate about South Africa and spend many months a year travelling the region exploring new properties, visiting existing favourites and plotting new itineraries so you can be guaranteed that their recommendations are up to date.
