Southern & East Africa
Africa is a fascinating continent - offering the most superb wildlife on our planet, as well as outstanding natural beauty, colourful local cultures and glorious Indian Ocean beaches. We are African safari holidays specialists, so we can advise you on the differences between the wildlife experiences in each country. For example, we can tell you which national parks in South Africa are malaria free, which lodges in Kenya & Tanzania are child friendly, where to see endangered mountain gorillas, rhinos, wild dogs and other specific species. We know the best time of year to visit each country, and the most convenient flight routes - especially if you want to combine two or more countries, or add on a beach stay on an idyllic Indian Ocean island.
The wide open spaces will fill you with awe, as will the incredible wildlife. You can see the Big Five in South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Rwanda, Namibia, Madagascar & beyond - ranging from the humble dung beetle to the majestic lion, the 'king of the jungle' that roams free across the savanna. Although most visitors want to tick off the Big Five - elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino & leopard - African safari holidays are so much more that this. From the early morning wake up call, accompanied by the smell of fresh coffee, to the excitement of spotting your first large mammal, and evenings sitting around a roaring campfire, these are memories you will cherish forever.
We have been arranging African safari holidays, packages & tours to view the Big Five in South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania & beyond for over 20 years.

More information on African safari holidays, packages & tours to see the Big Five in South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe & Zambia:
Africa  offer a vast choice of safari destinations, from the wide open plains of East Africa, renowned for their easy game viewing (especially the Masai Mara in Kenya & the Serengeti in Tanzania) to the bushveld of South Africa and Botswana, with their more diverse species. Namibia & the arid Kalahari offer a completely different game viewing experience.
For most people, the time of year you are planning to travel will have the greatest influence on the African safari holidays, packages & tours we recommend, as this is a vast continent with many different weather patterns. Generally try and avoid the rainy season in the country you are visiting, as the animals take shelter and are much less likely to be seen. As there is plenty of ground water, they also do not need to search out the waterholes. Gravel roads can also be extremely slippery in the rain. The dry season is generally best for game viewing, as the grasses are also lower at that time of year, making game viewing easier.
The next most important consideration is the type of animals you wish to see. Most first-time African safari holidays, packages & tours are to see the Big Five in South Africa, Kenya or Tanzania, as these countries offer a classic safari experience, with excellent Big Five game viewing all year round. They also offer a wide range of accommodation options at different price points.
But if its elephants you particularly wish to see, head for Chobe in Botswana or Amboseli in Kenya. For lions visit the Masai Mara in Kenya, the Serengeti in Tanzania, or the Kruger National Park or Madikwe Game Reserve both in South Africa. To see rhino head to Hluhluwe, also in South Africa, and for leopard go to South Luangwa in Zambia, or the Sabi region of the Kruger National Park. For gorillas, chimps and other primates, head for Uganda or Rwanda and for lemurs you must travel to Madagascar.  Cheetah like the vast open plains of Namibia.
Budget is another important consideration for most people on African safaris holidays, packages & tours, with Botswana and Tanzania tending to be the most expensive destinations for an African safari, whilst South Africa and Kenya tend to have the most affordable options. South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania are all particularly child friendly, when considering African safari holidays, packages & tours, with many family room options.
If you have health issues and do not wish to take malaria tablets on African safaris, packages & tours, then South Africa is the destination for you - as it has several outstanding malaria-free game reserves including Madikwe, Hluhluwe, Nambiti, Entabeni, Kgalagadi, Shamwari, Amakhala and Kariega.
