While we may be physically restricted as to where we travel, that doesn’t stop the wandering spirit from feeling the need to explore. With the rise of virtual tourism, we can do just that —  explore, but from home.

 

One such travel trend we can enjoy at home or away is an African safari. Sure, from the comfort of your couch you won’t feel the sun on your back or smell the dry landscape in the still air, but you will see incredible animals up close and feel the rush of free, wild nature.

 

Peek in on several South African game reserves with 24-hour livestreamed footage showcasing wildlife hot spots. Let the incredible visuals inspire your future travel, while appeasing your nature-loving wanderlust from home.

 

Watch out over the savannah, vying for a glimpse of the Big Five with Africam and Explore.org, boasting views of Sabi SandsBalule Nature Reserve and Kruger National Park — check out the highlight reel of the big cats and wandering wildlife.

 

Diversify your viewing lineup with WildEarth TV’s online safaris. Watch the sun rise and set daily, on South African time, and follow along with professional gamekeepers and park rangers as they tour the savannah seeking wildlife — fully recreating the land-cruiser experience for home-bound travelers.

After taking a picture with the life-sized teddy bear, kids will be whisked away by a Peninsula Camp Counselor to a luxurious guestroom where a charming teepee awaits. An afternoon of camp-themed games and activities, including a hotel-wide scavenger hunt, rounds off the family-friendly experience, fun for children of all ages.
