Wildlife safari holidays in Africa are once-in-a-lifetime holidays so why not make it extra special and make it tailor-made.
Our tailor-made specialists will advise you on all your options, helping you design your ideal itinerary within your budget. From horseback safaris and walking tours to arriving in a six-seater plane, it's all your choice. You also need to decide if you’re after five-star luxury or wanting wild camping and swapping stories beneath starry skies.
The thing about safaris is they are full of surprises: You could be returning from a trip into the savannah and spot the usually elusive leopard, crossing your path. And there’s something pretty magical about the anticipation of it all. Just keep your eyes open and your mind alert, and you’ll be rewarded when you least expect it.
There's plenty of big game to be seen among the islands of Botswana's Okavango Delta. Elephants have flourished in Botswana thanks to the abundant grasses and water supplies. During the dry season, the elephants are drawn towards water sources giving you an even greater opportunity to see them up close. Always endearing, thanks to the sensitive bond they show in family groups, they are the undisputed safari heavyweights. And Botswana is home to the world's largest elephant population.
