Christmas & New Year
Enjoy Christmas and New Year with a difference by joining a safari adventure to Botswana or Namibia. Check out our holiday options with departures during the festive season.
Namibia is country with a firm focus on community-based conservation. The remote north-west is home to conservancy projects, local Himba communities and fascinating wildlife. On these safaris your specialist guide will give you an insiders perspective into all of these, plus giving you the opportunity to see stunning landscapes.
Africa is full of different cultures. Experiencing a one of these can be an enlightening experience that leaves you with a mutual understanding and respect. Some of our adventures offer the opportunity to meet another culture in a way that is both beneficial to visitors and their hosts.
Enormous Lawrence-of-Arabia dunes, savanna between petrified dune ridges, vast gravel plains, towering mountain ranges and deep sculpted canyons - explore a variety of desert landscapes by vehicle and on foot, led by a knowledgeable and interesting guide on one of our desert adventures.
It has always been difficult to find a safari suitable for a family group that was reasonably priced. We have tried to make your search easier by selecting some of our favourite adventures and listing them here.
Arguably, any safari or adventure to southern Africa offers a wealth of photographic opportunities. We have noted a select few here that are especially suitable for photographers.
An African adventure with a small group is a great way to explore with a group of like minded travellers. Many of our safaris have a very low single supplement or no charge at all making these very economic options for the African enthusiast who plans to travel solo.
Some areas of Namibia, Botswana, Tanzania or Zambia are best explored on a safari led by a specialist guide. A specialist safari guide might be an expert on wildlife, ornithology, a certain species or natural history in general. Their encyclopaedic knowledge of their subject and often additional interest or involvement in conservation makes these safaris unique and special.
Experiencing Africa's wilderness areas is integral to many of our safari adventures, and there's no better way than on foot. There are nearly always opportunities for walking but to maximise these we have given you some options to choose from.
Wildlife is Africa's biggest attraction for visitors and is a large part of many of our safaris and adventures. Trying to pick the best wildlife area is almost impossible but we've tried to offer a good cross-section of great areas here.
