How to Spot a Leopard in South Africa

When you are ready to begin planning your trip to Africa, the first safari you will take is often of the online, bewildering type: researching camps and parks with not a lot to go on. If you haven’t explored it already, offers one-stop-shop planning tools to help design your dream safari. We’ve applied over 20 years of fielding traveler questions into filters that anticipate many of the desires that spark a safari adventure. Sometimes the trip-of-a-lifetime starts with a childhood dream you could never get out of your head:  like seeing a leopard in its habitat.

So, if you are interested in a Cape Town visit for your family, but can’t imagine going all the way to Africa without seeing a leopard – and you want to make sure that your 12 year old twins have access to a swimming pool – by using our filters, you’ll find 19 safari camps that fit the bill.

You don’t have to just take our word for it: each camp description includes comprehensive slideshows, updated pricing, and TripAdvisor reviews to help build a complete picture and prepare you to consult with one of our expert trip planners who will help you realize your perfect safari.

Or, if you want to look at one of our top trips for inspiration, and you still want to be where the leopards are, you can filter our Top Trips in the same way to help guide your options by country, activities, wildlife, amenities and much more.
