Africa is a huge, huge continent and each area of each country, and even the camps in these areas offer completely different experiences. The beauty of it’s diversity though is that there is definitely an itinerary out there for everyone. We have been crafting tailor made trips for over 20 years now, so really do know out stuff. It can therefore be a good idea once you have had a browse through the itineraries to give us a call for further discussion with an expert who has recently visited the lodges & areas in question… Although we keep our website updated and try to make it as comprehensive as possible, first-hand experience is a much better indicator of the real-time quality of a camp!
We can craft any itineraries to suit you entirely, providing that it is all logistically possible with your time frame and budget. So please note this page is merely here to give you an idea of some of our favourite combinations. We hope this serves as a useful tool for not just inspiration, but so you can work out the kind of trip you can get for your budget and time frame.
A GUIDE TO CHOOSING YOUR AFRICA HOLIDAY ITINERARIES
All of our 50 itineraries are tailor made for each individual client, according to their budget, requirements and preferences. We don't sell pre-packaged trips of any kind. However, in order to show you how some of the different elements can fit together, and some of the kinds of trips that previous clients have taken, we set out here a few example itineraries. These are for illustration purposes only and should not be read restrictively. Your trip can include elements of any combination of any of these itineraries - the only limitations are your budget and your timeframe!
Please select the style of trip you are after. If you aren't sure what they all mean, here's a little guide;
Kenya Adventure 1
$4,490 per person (inc. internal flights)
A superb introduction to Kenya. Great game and great guides!
DAY 1 - 3
Lewa Wilderness is probably our pick of the lodges in the Lewa Conservancy as it combines a whole spread of both activities and privacy. Each of the cottages is very spacious and gives you the feeling of total privacy while not feeling cut off from the lodge itself. As an actual home, the communal areas feel welcoming and comfortable with the swimming pool area and bar being particular favourites!
DAY 4 - 6
Set to the north of the Masai Mara National Park, Elephant Pepper benefits from being away from the crowded Western region of the park.
Kenya Adventure 2
$5,917 per person (inc. internal flights)
Great value trip with the emphasis on safari as opposed to luxury
DAY 1 - 3
The most significant feature of Elsa’s, apart from the views that stretch for years and the perfect tranquility, is the staff and their attitude in the camp. The camp makes a point of growing most of its own produce and so boasts a wonderful selection of fresh vegetables with which to cook.
DAY 4 - 7
Cottars is set down to the South East of the Mara away from the crowds of the more popular western Mara region. On the whole the guiding is good from the camp and the experience of riding through the bush in a replica 20s car is novel. The region has good resident prides and, due to its secluded location, has an intimate safari feel.
