Safaris to Africa

As vast as it is diverse, encompassing desert, savannah, rainforest, mountain ranges, lowlands, stunning coastline and vast inland lakes, Africa is a continent rich in dramatic scenery and natural beauty. See the world’s most prolific concentration of wildlife in their natural habitat, experience the warmth of African tribal people and their diverse cultures, travel through stunning landscapes and challenge yourself with adrenalin-fueled adventures at Victoria Falls. Climb Mount Kilimanjaro, trek in search of the mountain gorilla, track down the Big Five in Africa’s leading game reserves or simply laze on the stunning white beaches of Zanzibar or Mozambique.

Africa
Overland Safaris

Visiting remote places and traversing some of the most stunning locations on the planet is made possible aboard our overland trucks - large, modified vehicles that seat 28 - 30 travellers and carry all the equipment necessary for camping and cooking on the trip. Combining truck transportation and camping in tents is the most cost-effective way of going on safari in Africa and it gets you off the beaten track too. Our Africa overland safaris are led by an experienced tour leader, along with a driver and cook, who have travelled extensively throughout the region.

Africa
Lodge accommodated safaris

For a little extra comfort whilst on safari our lodge accommodated trips, which have a maximum group size of 14, may be just the ticket. With an exciting range of itineraries in Southern Africa, East Africa and Madagascar, you can discover the wonders of this diverse and captivating continent whilst staying in a comfortable mid-range lodges and permanent tented camps, set within beautiful surroundings. You’ll be accompanied by a knowledgeable and experienced guide who is also your driver.

From the world famous national parks of the Masai Mara and Serengeti to the tranquil waterways of Botswana's Okavango Delta and the vast sand dunes of Sossusvlei in Namibia, Africa is as diverse as it is beautiful.

We've handpicked some classic itineraries in Africa to get your travel bug biting. Spot game by the watering holes in Etosha, climb the apricot dunes in Sossuvlei, ride a mokoro down the Okavango Delta, go in search of the Big 5 in some of Africa's leading national parks, from the Masai Mara in Kenya to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, Chobe in Botswana and Kruger in South Africa.
