Combining expedition-style transport with camping for your accommodation is the most cost-effective way of going on safari in Africa and 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. If you don’t fancy camping, there is the option to upgrade to budget accommodation, where you stay in basic twin share rooms but will still travel with our overland camping passengers, sharing the truck, equipment and the chores and enjoying your meals together as a group.
Africa Lodge accommodated safaris
If you like to end a day's safari with a sundowner out on the terrace then our lodge accommodated trips, with a maximum group size of up to 16 passengers, 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 comfortable mid-range lodges and permanent tented camps set within beautiful surroundings. You’ll be accompanied by a knowledgeable and experienced guide who doubles as your driver.

Where there's a Will, there's a way!
Knowledgeable, excited, helpful and passionate. Took his time with everyone on the tour and made sure everyone's needs were attended to.
Thanks for everything. ”
Tour was fun, first time for us doing this sort of a trip. Highlights for me were the game drives in Chobe and South Luangwa. Really enjoyed the optional extra's of horse riding and snorkelling. Some of the days on the truck were as advertised but felt much longer than we anticipated. Our guide, cook and driver were faultless, a fantastic team of truly lovely people. They took great care of us, told us interesting and entertaining info about the places we were visiting. I do not think I have ever eaten so well and have tried to recreate some of the meals since coming home.
Thank you. ”
All 3 staff [driver, cook and guide] were great, friendly, and the food was wonderful. Tents and mattresses were of a good standard. The staff who ran the Serengeti excursion were also very professional.Some of the campsites were a little basic; with poorly maintained facilities - for example broken toilet seats and non-flushing toilets were unpleasant. But they all had a bar area for child drinks, which was good.We didn't appreciate beforehand the number of very early starts that would be required; perhaps this should be made more clear on trip notes.”
Africa has some of the best wildlife on the planet from big cats to massive elephants and from the unpredictable buffalo to the rare black rhino. The Big Five are always high on people's bucket list for things to see but there's plenty more magnificent creatures to meet on safari in Africa and our handy wildlife guide tells you all you need to know from where to go for which animals and when best to go.
