Safaris

Introduction

A classic, luxury safari holiday in the wilderness game reserves of East and Southern Africa is an unbeatable experience you’ll want to savour again and again. Whether a wildlife-only trip or combined with a beach or city extension, the thrill of getting close to majestic big cats, elephants, buffalo, rhino, hippos, giraffes and birdlife on a luxury safari forges a lifetime connection to nature.

Luxury safari lodges abound across this diverse continent, from the watery wonderland of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, the saltpans and sand dunes of Namibia and the great nature reserves of South Africa. Smaller, family-run camps in Rwanda offer outstanding opportunities to see wild gorillas; Zambia safaris include the option of cruising the Chobe River, whose banks boast one of the densest wildlife populations in all Africa, while a safari in Tanzania’s Serengeti can be rounded off with a restful beach break in Zanzibar.

There are also exciting walking safaris available in several of these destinations, including Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya and Madagascar, which enable you to get even closer to the animals you’re interested in. To get an idea of what it’s possible to do, read our round-up of the best African safaris.

There are plenty of wildlife holidays available in other countries including India, Australia and the Galapagos but if you’re after the quintessential safari experience and the chance to see wildlife roaming the savannah, speak to our specialists, who can tell you what to see where, when and how.
