There are few sights more captivating or humbling than watching a herd of elephants moving quietly across the tawny grasslands of Africa. And nothing gets the spine tingling more than meeting the gaze of a wild lioness or leopard. From the herb-scented aroma of the savannah to the nocturnal ‘whoop’ of hyenas, a safari is a holiday of the senses. The sights, sounds and smells will stay with you long after you return home.
With such a huge choice of safari options available, however, planning your trip and deciding where to go can leave you wallowing in logistics like a proverbial hippo. That’s why our Travel Specialists have visited the finest safari destinations in Southern Africa, hand-picked the most unique and special places to stay and designed a portfolio of safari holidays to give you the best possible experience.
From drifting through the Okavango Delta in a dugout canoe to tracking desert elephants in Namibia, our safaris will immerse you in the wilds of Africa, providing a safe, authentic, responsible and unforgettable holiday.

Why choose a Safari?
If you enjoyed The Lion King you’ll get an even bigger buzz from going on safari. But there’s a lot more to a safari than ticking off the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino). As well as traditional game drives, many camps and lodges offer other activities like bush walks, boat trips, star-gazing and cultural tours. The style and quality of accommodation and food is often an experience in itself, while many of our safari holidays can be combined or tailor made to include anything from an adventure-packed break at Victoria Falls to a few days exploring Cape Town and the Cape Peninsula.
Where to go on Safari
Our safari holidays in Southern Africa take you to some of the continent’s most iconic wildlife destinations, including Namibia’s Etosha National Park, Botswana’s Okavango Delta and the Kruger National Park in South Africa. Popular combinations include Victoria Falls and Chobe National Park – renowned for its huge herds of elephants. We can also arrange an amazing itinerary in Namibia that features desert, coast and safari in just 12 days.
Our safaris in Namibia, South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe include fly-drives, independent touring and escorted holidays. We particularly recommend Namibia and South Africa’s Cape region for a free-spirited self-drive holiday – you can drive yourself around Namibia’s Etosha National Park and we can easily add a few days on safari to your South African self-drive in Cape Town, the Winelands and Garden Route. If you prefer to leave the driving to someone else, our escorted safaris include expert guided holidays travelling by vehicle or light aircraft. Independent touring holidays, meanwhile, take care of all the logistics – from transfers to accommodation and activities.
