How it works
Immerse yourself in the African wild from wherever you are in the world
You will participate in the safari via a video streaming app of your choice – YouTube, Zoom, Vimeo, Teams and others – using the device of your choice – a smart television, tablet, computer or even your phone – as long as it has internet connectivity.
After booking your safari we will email you a Welcome Pack, which includes:
- A private video link to the safari;
- Information about the reserve on which the safari will happen, including a map;
- An introduction to your expert safari guide.
On the day of the safari, we will activate the live video stream 10 minutes before the safari begins. To join, you will use the private link in the Welcome Pack. Your method of communicating with your guide will depend on your streaming app of choice; it may be text, voice or video.
Easy to follow instructions will also be included in the Welcome Pack, but if anything is still unclear or if you have any questions, please do contact us via email and we will get right back to you.
We cannot wait to have you on safari with us!

More info to pick the safari for you
Your safari takes place on Pridelands Conservancy, part of Balule Nature Reserve in the iconic Greater Kruger National Park (GKNP), in South Africa. Pridelands is a conservation success story worth celebrating. A former hunting farm turned back into a wildlife haven by its new owners, John and Anton Lategan, in 2017, the first fences between Pridelands and the GKNP were dropped, adding 2000 ha, or 4900 acres, of land to the GKNP. The Conservancy is also home to EcoTraining, pioneers and leaders in safari guide and wildlife training in Africa. Please find attached a map of Pridelands and its road network.
