Safaris in Africa

the 'budget-conscious' traveler on an african holiday
If you're on a tight budget with lots of time, then an overland tour is the way to go. Camping is a great option, and it allows you too see lots while you're here. Make sure you're the overland type of traveler before you book the trip. Check things like group size, level of participation required, type of vehicle and equipment used, and ask for references from other travelers. Also Google the company's name and see what comes up. It is fun and relaxed, but it can be uncomfortable at times and it might involve lots of traveling. Another way to do it on a shoe string budget is to travel from backpacker to backpackers with the Bazbus. You might not get a luxury safari experience and you'll have to figure out everything yourself, but sometimes that's half the fun...

the 'adventure' traveler on safari in africa
There are still lots of adventure to be enjoyed in Africa! Most wildlife areas are wild and untamed, ready to be explored on an African vacation. If you fall into this category, then choose a destination that offers remote wildlife areas and pick a camping safari operator that specialises in small group travel. These guys know what they are doing and you'll have an amazing time if you don't mind roughing it a little. Generally the camp chores are taken care of, but it's fun to get involved and help where needed. Classic mobile safaris are also very adventurous but this is 'old style safari' at its best and it comes at a price. It is well worth it though.

the 'i-enjoy-my-comforts' traveler on an african safari
For travelers looking for a bit more comfort and a planned itinerary while on an african vacation, there are loads of options to choose from. Put your own African package holiday together by organizing flights, car hire and accommodation. Or get one of our travel experts to organize the perfect safari holiday for you. They are the travel specialists and know all the ins and outs of travel in Africa. We would suggest making use of a travel expert if you're a first time traveler. There are many types of safaris, holidays, packages and tours in Africa you can choose from: lodge safaris, island holidays, beach vacations (perfect for family holidays), horseback safaris, self drive safaris and walking safaris to name but a few.

the 'spoil-me-rotten' traveler on vacation in africa
Be it a luxury train journey on the Rovos Rail, a fantastic helicopter safari over southern Africa or a relaxed island beach break to unwind from the stresses of every day life, Africa has some of the most luxurious safari vacation options in the world, ready to be enjoyed by you!

If you are planning a safari in Africa, we'll suggest you prebook all arrangements as there are not always last minute space available. The best will be to make use of an Africa travel expert and let them organise your safari vacation of a lifetime. Find the African safari of your choice, be it for a family holiday, a romantic getaway, an adventure camping safari or a road trip in Africa.
