The RBA have seen fit to drop the interest rate by a further .25% to below 1% for the first time. This, of course, has an effect on the value of the A$ against certain currencies. Of particular concern to us is the drop in value against the US$ as many of the countries that we visit use US$ currency for payment of safaris. However it is NOT all doom and gloom! Whenever we experience a drop against the US$ we see the South African Rand drop also and so the A$ against the Rand stays strong! We are getting better than ten Rand per A$! This means that we can still give you really great value safaris into South Africa and Namibia. South Africa has some of the best wildlife viewing and safari destinations to be found anywhere on the continent. It also has amazing scenic beauty and diversity that ensures a wonderful experience to all our guests who travel to this destination. Therefore, there is no need to put your dream safari on the back burner – simply contact us and we will do the rest for you.
