Thrilling Safari Tours

There is nothing quite as exhilarating as observing the magnificent wild animals of Africa from an open-topped Land Cruiser, where you are in safe but electrifying proximity with powerful, roaming creatures in their natural habitat.

A game drive on one of our luxury safari tours is a truly magical experience, full of wonder and excitement, and the vast beauty of the African bush is both humbling and life affirming.

Our safari tours take you off-road where your chances of meeting – and photographing- all of the ‘Big Five’ (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo) are increased, and you’ll be taken to game lodges that are closed to the general public.

We’ll take you to Cape Town’s Kruger National Park, Thornybush Game Reserve and the Chobe National Park in Botswana where vast herds of elephants and buffalo roam along the shoreline.

Discover Kenya’s magnificent Masai Mara Reserve inhabited by 95 species of animals, and where the spectacular Great Migration attracts over 1.5 million wildebeest, zebra and impala every July through to September.

Our safari tours also include expeditions to Amboseli National reserve, Lake Nakaru National Park, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongo Crater and Aberdare National Park as well as villages and cities along the way.

Combining the ease and comfort of luxury travel while also satisfying the inquisitive traveller’s thirst for authenticity, our range of safari tours itineraries reflect the vastness of Africa, and the hundreds of species available to observe in their stunning natural habitats.

Choose from a 31 Day Grand African Expedition, 24 Day Grand African Safari and a range of Southern and Eastern African safari tours itineraries ranging from 19 to 14 days, with extensions available.
