Adventure Safaris

An African safari adventure – the safari experience for you

An African safari is the experience of a lifetime. A century and more ago, hunters and sportsmen were drawn to this complex and awe-inspiring continent to “bag” big game for sport and trophy collecting.

The “Big Five” - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhinoceros – are no longer hunted (though, sadly, many are still poached). However, the sheer adrenaline-pumping thrill of spotting these magnificent animals from an open Land Rover - to observe and photograph - is as big a thrill as ever it was in Colonial days.

As well as the prospect of some unforgettable sights and sounds, you will have your own special reasons for embarking on a safari, from a desire for adventure to your dream honeymoon. A modern safari can be planned to encompass your particular interests, resources and lifestyle choices and realise your dreams.

If your preference is for the utmost luxury possible for a safari - the full “Out of Africa” type of experience – than an elegant lodge with no compromise on home comforts will be a good base from which to explore, offering world-class accommodation and service in beautiful surroundings. There will be close encounters with Big Five animals in open-top safari vehicles, in the capable hands of a knowledgeable game ranger. It will be a satisfying balance between rubbing shoulders with the natural world, yet enjoying good food and wine and comfortable bush living.

For anyone committed to nature, try an informal, remote, rustic but comfortable retreat in the midst of pristine African wilderness. A comfortable tent with hot water and wholesome food is perfectly acceptable for you, in return for the chance to be so close to nature, travelling by light aircraft between private airstrips in remote safari locations. For you, there is the excitement of limitless skies, wide open space and awe-inspiring scenery in the capable hands of a game ranger who understands the natural forces constantly at work in the region – with a glimpse of the Big Five still likely, but more of a bonus.

Perhaps you enjoy a variety of activities or hobbies, from hiking to horse-riding, bird-watching to beach sports, as well as good cuisine, rather than opting for a specific destination. A safari that focuses on preferred activities may well be the answer, providing memories relating to your favourite ways of spending your time irrespective of where the tour takes you.

Should you thirst for adventure and you are time-rich – though possibly with a limited budget – then touring in a large overland truck, active involvement with camping alongside like-minded people in a tight-knit group may well be for you. That way, you can see a large amount of Africa, reach out-of-the-way, beautiful places, see an abundance of animals and get to know enthusiastic, friendly co-travellers.

And, of course, if you are all of the above - keen to see specific parts of Africa, happy to travel in a group, have reasonable budget and want comfort without necessarily luxury – then the widest possible choices of African safari – and an amazing holiday - undoubtedly await you.
