Types of Safaris
There are many different types of safari, and so many unique ways to experience the varied, vast and breathtaking landscapes of Africa.
With so many different types of safari and choices of destination on offer, it can be a little daunting when beginning to plan your trip to Africa. Whether you’re planning a classic wildlife safari, a holiday with the family, a romantic getaway, an exclusive once-in-a-lifetime luxury adventure or a memorable celebration, we can design the perfect itinerary for you.
Factors to consider when choosing how to see a destination include the size and composition of your travelling party, your preferred accommodation style, which animals you want to see, how adventurous you plan to be and how much you want to spend. Of course you will also need to take into account the time of year you will be travelling; wild animals often move according to the seasons, with the annual migration of wildebeest in Kenya and Tanzania being a famous example. Also the green summer season in southern Africa is wonderful for birds but makes spotting other game more difficult. During the dry season the bush dries out and animals are more visible at waterholes and rivers.
This is where our knowledge of Africa comes in; we can recommend specific properties to suit your requirements as well as advise you on when and where to go. Below is a selection of some of the types of safari we offer, which range from indulgent Luxury Safaris to specially tailored kid-friendly Family Safaris and Active Safaris for intrepid travellers.
Safaris can be exclusively fly-in, can involve driving from lodge to lodge or be a combination of both. How you travel depends on the destination, your time constraints and budget.
