Embark on a South African safari -- spotting wildlife on a private game reserve, in a malaria-free zone -- for $1799 per person. This is the lowest price Travelzoo has published for a safari adventure, and it slashes $800 per person off the cost of similar packages with airfare.

Travelers visit the coast town of Cape Town to absorb the country's cultural diversity and ascend by cable car to the top of Table Mountain. After that, the tour group heads to the Entabeni Safari Conservancy near Johannesburg. Private reserves like this are not restricted by hours of operation (compared to other famous parks), so the expert rangers conduct game drives at dawn and dusk -- times when the Big 5 are the most active.

Since the reserve is in a malaria-free zone, travelers don't need to take pre-trip prescription anti-malaria medications. As such, this trip is ideal for families or elderly travelers.

The six-night vacation includes:

  • Roundtrip airfare on South African Airways
  • Flights and transportation within South Africa
  • Six nights (four in Cape Town and two in the game reserve) in hotels well-reviewed on TripAdvisor
  • 10 meals: six breakfasts, two lunches and two dinners
  • Four game drives and additional tours
  • Services of an English-speaking guide and game rangers

Depart from New York (JFK) for these prices (all dates are in 2014). Add $50 more per person to depart from Washington, D.C. (IAD):

  • $1799 ... Sept. 13
  • $1899 ... Jan. 14; Feb. 1 or 17; March 4 or 23; Sept. 27
  • $1959 ... Oct. 4
  • $2199 ... April 19 or Aug. 16
  • $2299 ... May 17
