Safari for Six

Embark on an unforgettable adventure with Safari for Six, which operates from St Lucia, KwaZulu-Natal. Located just a 2.5-hour drive from King Shaka International Airport, St Lucia is a natural haven awaiting you within the iSimangaliso Wetlands National Park – a UNESCO World Heritage treasure.

Imagine pristine beaches and teeming wildlife alongside a charming village brimming with pubs, restaurants, and cafes. This birder’s paradise also boasts 60% of Southern Africa’s feathered wonders, making it a symphony of song and vibrant plumage.

You are in great hands – their previous guests agree (read below). Safari for Six is among a few female-owned and operated safari companies in the country. Led by Stacey van Wyk, a 20-year veteran and the only female Lilizela Nature Guide of the Year winner in 2017, the company champions unique journeys and personalized service at prices that won’t break the bank.

Why choose Safari for Six?

As the name suggests, Safari for Six has comfortable, custom-designed vehicles, built for an intimate exploration with only six guests. Forget squirming for a view – every seat is a comfortable panoramic window to the breathtaking sights and sounds of the African bush. There are also individual storage boxes to keep your belongings safe and dry, while binoculars, blankets, and ponchos are provided to ensure your comfort no matter the weather.

Safari for Six’s expert guides, deeply passionate about South Africa’s natural and cultural heritage, weave fascinating stories into your adventure, transforming each sighting into a living chapter in an epic tale.

Their diverse safari packages cater to both international and local travelers. Explore the world-renowned Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park on a Big Five Safari, lasting from a full day to two or three nights. Witness their dedication to rhino conservation, a beacon of hope amidst the struggle against extinction.

While ticking off the Big Five is undoubtedly thrilling, Safari for Six lets you marvel at the synchronized ballet of hippos in shimmering lagoons. Their Hippo & Crocodile Boat Safaris always deliver something unforgettable!

For a taste of both worlds, join the Beach and Bush Safari. This scenic drive through the park culminates in a barbeque lunch by the shores of Cape Vidal, a rocky haven with tranquil bays and vibrant rock pools ideal for snorkeling.

And if you crave aquatic thrills, Safari for Six has you covered. Partnering with the region’s most experienced operators, they offer exhilarating fishing safaris. Choose from battling big game, casting a line on pristine beaches, or battling the legendary tigerfish of Jozini Dam.

They only take a maximum of 6 people and give a personalized service which they will change to your personal requirements of what you want to see. Recommend and would definitely use again,’ said rob_kay2013.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
