Some of the world's great wildernesses and landscapes can be found in Africa, making it ideal for wildlife holidays that go beyond the Big Five and the classic game parks associated with safari holidays.
Follow chimps in Kenya, look for lemurs and other unique fauna on Madagascar, track gorillas in Rwanda or Uganda, go bird spotting in Ethiopia, encounter the varied wildlife of Etosha National Park in Namibia, paddle from one wildlife hotspot to another in Botswana and be amazed by the wealth of wildlife that can be spotted during a visit to Zambia in the country's Green or Emerald Season.
Whether you travel by dugout canoe, 4WD or set off on a walking safari, these are just a handful of the options available. You can also tailor-make your wildlife holiday in Africa by adding a city stay, beach holiday or other excursion to your itinerary; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
