Our Story

Tourism that Cares owns the Luxury Kosher Safari brand. We are a family-owned business that has been in the industry for 23 years. We have highly experienced Kosher butchers, chefs, mashgichim and tour guides who all work together in delivering various levels of Kashrut depending on your budget and observance of Kosher. Kosher Safari options are limited, if you don't have a partner who understands how to deliver this service, especially in remote areas outside the main cities. We are recognized as destination specialists with enough experience to handle a small budget Kosher family trip to a large VIP Safari incentive group.

The idea behind “Milestone Travel packages” is to spoil someone special. It might be your parents or grandparents wedding anniversary, or it might be a significant birthday, like your grandfather’s 70th!

This 9 days package, features 5-star quality lodges. They are the best game viewing and wildlife and “national geographic style” travel experiences on the continent! Mala Mala, near Kruger National Park, and Belmond Eagles island in the Okavango Delta, plus River Club, near Victoria Falls.

By booking this package we will weave in framed photos and letters from the grandchildren at each location, we will also add special touches like a private message on a video from the children, and handmade gifts embossed with the birthday person’s name or a wedding anniversary gift that has been personalised.

Its best to start this journey on a Monday in Johannesburg International Airport, and ends on a Tuesday back in Johannesburg International Airport, with guaranteed departure based on a minimum of 2 participating guests. You can also add pre and post-to rights, to Cape Town for example.

    2

    Tuesday and Wednesday: Kruger National Park

    Mala Mala was the first safari lodge to offer true safaris in Southern Africa. It is unashamedly boastful of its high percentage of success in seeing all of the Big 5, during a 3-night stay, multiple times. Its history is rich and the lodge celebrates what the Rattray family brought to conservation and tourism as early as the 1930’s.  We normally take our morning safari drives around sunrise, before the heat of the day, with a handful of guests and very experienced and educated rangers. Return to the lodge for breakfast and option to do spa treatments or time at the pool. An armed ranger can also take you on an exciting nature walk. Lunch is served on the deck with views of the Sand River, which attracts a lot of animals daily for the shade and the fresh drinking water.  After a bit of a siesta, we head out on an afternoon safari drive. Return to camp after sunset. Dinner is served in the restaurant, on the deck, or around an open-air barbeque set under the stars.

Its a magical water wonderland of lagoons, rivers and islands and declared a protected UNESCO world heritage site. Enjoy lunch on arrival at a very special viewing deck, looking across to a busy heronry, and shallow waters of the lagoon.  For our afternoon activity, we will go on a sunset boat ride, and return for dinner.
