All About SAS Travel 



This website's author/founder/owner ...and your personal consultant Simon Atherton has experienced it all throughout Southern & East Africa over the last 15 years as either a tour escort or just returning for the wildlife and culture ... its a personal passion, Africa! Simon's first visit to the continent was in 1978 as a 6 year old. Simon is now an independent destination specialist agent and Western Australia's leading authority to the continent. "I still have fond memories of the rainbow nation back then, the mother city called Cape Town ... the cable car to Table Mountain wasn't like it then as it is today!" Simon has also participated in some of worlds biggest African product conferences* ingesting a wealth of product and geographical knowledge to the continent and here, he has unbiased listing of all properties geographically, producing this database of the 'best' or 'experienced' or 'recommended' Product links will take you direct to the 'official website' for the utmost best information, availability and prices in local currency otherwise check prices via the accommodation booking and availability tool at the bottom of the web page for a rate indication.

Southern African Safaris aka' SAS was created at INDABA 2016* as a one stop travel shop for all your African Continent & Oceania adventure travel, safari and scuba diving needs saving you time having to Google and locate the product yourself.

*Trade Conferences: WTM (Cape Town) 2016/17/18 - INDABA 2016/19/22 - Magical Kenya (Nairobi) 2018/22 – BTTE (Botswana) 2019/22 – Africa’s Eden (Botswana) 2022

Now, there's more to Africa than just booking a hotel online in Victoria Falls, perhaps a camp in the Maasai Mara .... there is the logistic's and safety of getting you from A to B and back to A again with zero complications and a mountain of memories!

SAS Travel will book your land arrangements direct via a DMC (Destination Management Company)in Cape Town thus cutting out corporate middle-man fees and commissions which generally including brochure international currency fluctuations imposed by many travel agents and 3rd party brochures or websites. SAS Travel will also charge you in product local currency, and at near parity and with no additional fees or charges (excluding credit card fees)
