The excitement, anticipation, adrenaline and unexpected all combine to form tapestries of unforgettable memories for a lifetime whether it’s the reverberating lion’s roar, laughing of hyenas or the drama which might unfold when the chase is on.
From the wide open plains of the Serengeti and watery wilderness of the Okavango Delta, to the expansive open spaces of Zambia and the isolation of Namibia’s deserts this is home to the planet’s most prolific animals, and its wildlife is like no other.
An African safari allows you to get up close and personal with the world’s most treasured ‘Big Five’, and you will also have the opportunity to see a plethora of other species including giraffes, zebras, wildebeests and cheetahs as well as the “Little Five”.
Africa is home to a wide range of excellent, luxury safari lodges available across the continent, equipped with modern facilities and comfortable amenities and spacious rooms perfect for your African safari holiday, allowing you to unwind with ease after a busy day of game viewing. Alternatively you can sleep out in sky beds, normally overlooking an active waterhole or camp under the stars in fly tents on mobile safaris.
Each lodge provides their own unique range of African safari experiences, removing the need for you to book your accommodation and safari trips separately. A wide variety of activities are available ensuring that there will always be a safari option perfect for you. We also offer a range of itineraries which allow you to enjoy different safaris at different lodges, giving you a widespread, comprehensive safari experience.
Whether your game viewing is by vehicle, boat, canoe, mountain bike, or on foot, there is a safari option to suit you. You can even get a view of the wildlife from the sky in a helicopter, microlight or a hot air balloon, a must for anyone wanting to discover a magical wildlife experience.
With offices in both the UK & South Africa, we have over 30 years unrivalled experience and the specific knowledge required to create the most exclusive hand-crafted safari holiday.
Be amazed, enthralled and thrilled and submerge yourself into Africa’s safari spectacular.
