Important notes on the safari tour packages:
  1. In enquiring on any of the following tour and safari packages – please supply safari/tour code with your tour/safari dates.
  2. Collection and drop off as required is included – thus need these to be able to advise and detail the quote as accurately as possible. Hotel name or flight number.
  3. Please also advise on any safari/tour restructuring requirements or additions.
  4. Special dietary requirements. We may be able to accommodate any type of dietary requirements, please supply these to advise/quote correctly. If not supplied, we quote as no special dietary requirements.
  5. Times we have given are the earliest and latest standard times – however we adjust as required or as needed for your flights. The more time located to the safari and tour the more time you actually get on safari and tour.
  6. Where meals are not included – is simply the best practical option to allow you to choose on the day. A snack or large meal as you may be requiring at that time. You thus pay for what is suitable at that time. Easy and best for you.
  7. Transfers required for the tour/safari as detailed are included as part of the fully guided experience. Thus, includes the service of a professional guide from collection to drop off.
  8. Not all of our extensive list of tours are included in the packages below. Only covering the most popular options. Thus, if you have specific requirements/interests/items to be included, please supply details and we will structure a package to include these as may be possible.
  9. All packages can be structured to have the night before or after at Ekala Guest house if your timing or flights require this.
  10. Minimum group size: Solo certainly and for an intimate private tour, ideally is 3. You get the most out of the private package. This can certainly be increased to a maximum of 9.
  11. Use of available time. Ekala applies all available time in the days allocated to the safari. Not only limited to a short drive or two. We use the time as suitable to our private group – maximum time on safari or a balance of safari time and relaxing time in South Africa’s bush as suitable to you.
  12. Kruger safaris – Ekala only recommends and uses the main Kruger National Park – moving from the accommodation point where we spent the night to one of the other points for the night. This way a large part of the Kruger and its diversity is covered. Far better than being based at one point, covering same part of the Kruger and its diversity daily.
  13. Panorama route: covering as many of the points as possible in the time available. Generally, we cover all important points and some of the others. However, does depend on the time you wish to spend at the sites. Also including the old mining town of Pilgrims rest where possible.
  14. Extend the Panoramic route to 1.5 days or 2 days. If 2 days, then 2 nights are spent in the canyon.
  15. Day tours duration – depart and return Ekala Guest House: Generally, depart Ekala 08:30 returning 17:30. However as private if you require less tour time – easy.
  16. Package prices supplied once customised to your individual requirements or that of your group

Best ability to contact Ekala around our British & Irish Lions tour packages:

info@ekalatours.com

Then will respond within 24 hours. Actually in most cases less. However depend on time differences.

Additionally Cell phones do create some problems. Due to time difference or because we may all be on tour and thus unable to answer your call at that time. Thus email works perfectly.

Furthermore difficult to deal with tour specifics on a cell phone.

Nelson Mandela - Apartheid Museum

For multi-day safari tour package – Ekala Guest House

Johannesburg accommodation

Bronze Wagon Battle of Blood River

Safety: For the full package, apart from the actual match day, you would be with one of Ekala’s team.

Same team that you would be discussing the package requirements right from the first enquiry.

This goes a long way in ensuring your safety and overall satisfaction in the end.

Due directly to current uncertainties around COVID-19:

Ekala has postponed taking any bookings and thus no deposit or payments currently required.

If you have any interest in our packages – pre, during and post British & Irish Lions tour, please discuss with us exactly what you are looking for and size of your group. Ekala will then see how we can structure, hopefully getting to the point of exactly what you are looking for.

Then as you have registered your interest, we will place you on our list that will give you first option as soon as these uncertainties do not exist. We will then confirm what we can supply, then if you wish to proceed, the first deposit would immediately be required.

Waterfall Panorama route

South Africa as current World Champions will certainly bring the best out of the Lions and can certainly expect a close and hard-fought tour.

Eight matches in total, five weeks (that you can certainly extend).

6 Cities – Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria, Durban, Nelspruit and Johannesburg with three tests against the reigning World Champions. Two of these tests being in Johannesburg.

First test between the British and Irish Lions and the Springboks at Soccer City (FNB stadium) – 24th July – would see the Springboks in action in this stadium for the first time in 8 years

We cannot wait for the Lions Tour 2021 in South Africa. Specifically considering the months of little to no sporting events. Due directly to COVID-19:
