African Safari

An African safari is an adventure quite unlike any other - and each safari holiday is different.  Awe-inspiring African wilderness, spectacular landscapes, magnificent  wildlife (both big and small), sundowners in the bush, evenings by the campfire, nights under canvas listening to the roar of lions and the cackling of hyenas...  Africa is a world apart; it envelops visitors with its magic and touches their souls.  
The wide range of African Safari destinations provides vast scope for all kinds of wonderful wildlife adventures and African wilderness experiences.  From the vast Serengeti Plains to the waterways of the Okavango Delta, from the wilds of the Skeleton Coast in Namibia to the hidden, wild walking paths of the Luangwa Valley... there is more than enough variety to last a lifetime of exploring. We relish the best of all these areas, and look forward to sharing them with you on your safari holiday!

Africa's greatest safari countries


The range of possibilities for your safari is immense, depending on various factors including your required activities, preferred accommodation style, travel dates and budget.  Each itinerary is vary carefully tailor-made to each client's specific requirements.  As a result, our itineraries vary enormously.  Your safari may be as active or relaxing as you wish; we can arrange walking safaris over several nights, or lodge-based safaris in which you can take time out with your watercolours or a camera.

The essence of the safari experience is obviously the spectacular African wilderness and wildlife - but your accommodation is a big part of the experience too.  Your safari can be simple and rustic (bucket showers, no electricity), or fantastically luxurious, chic and stylish (with fine wines and dining, spa treatments and every comfort),  with lots of options in between...
The terminology for all the accommodation options on safari can be confusing! Here is our quick rundown: 

On Safari - Mobile Fly Camp

A private, mobile fly camp is packed up and pitched on a fresh patch of wild park each day. This can be as elaborate or simple as you are prepared to pay for; but carrying cooks and supplies, mess tents and showers is always going to be an expensive, if wonderfully personal and exciting, business. Tents are usually small and fairly basic. Some safari lodges offer single nights fly-camping in the bush.  This is definately one of the best safari holiday experiences we recommend
Example – Sand Rivers Selous

On Safari - Semi-permanent tented lodge

An alternative form of mobile camping is becoming increasingly popular, as operators (such as Nomads and &Beyond) recognise the value of setting up a camp close to the migrating herds. These camps are really semi-permanent tents, very big and luxurious, and you will not notice their ‘mobility’! Your camp will be prepared before your arrival, and remain in place for the duration of your stay.  This is really the only way to guarantee peak migration game viewing.

Depending on the country and area you are visiting, and your own preferences, your safari might include 4x4 driving expeditions, walking, boating in motor boats or man-powered mokoros, or watching wildlife from horseback or a hot air balloon! We have highlighted many of the individual options on our Other Interests  page, but do let us know your interests and preferences at the outset.

In summary there is a wide range of choice for an African Safari - different countries, different activities, different accommodation types, and definitely different prices.  We strongly suggest that you call us to discuss further as we can give you an impartial opinion as what would be best for you
