Africa Safaris & Tours

An adventure awaits. Experience Africa your way on our award-winning tours and safaris.

A bucket list destination for safari-searchers, wildlife-wanderers, and thrill-seekers alike. Safaris in the Serengeti. Wine tasting in the South African Winelands. Climbing the towering sand dunes of the Namib Desert. White water rafting at Victoria Falls. Our Africa tours uncover the very best of the continent.

Stray from the beaten track and get to know the real Africa. Our award-winning authentic experiences are led by experienced tour leaders and guides. This means you can simply make the most of your adventure, while we deal with the rest.

We offer an array of different trip styles in Africa, from traditional overland camping to luxury lodge safaris. Comfort camping sits somewhere in between, and our range of private safaris are perfect if you would prefer to travel with just your friends and family, rather than as part of a group. However you want to explore Africa, we're sure to have the perfect itinerary for you!

Africa Small Group Overland Safaris

Our Small Group Overland Safaris have a maximum group size of just 16 travellers, perfect for an intimate safari experience. These camping safaris travel in an overland truck, escorted by a safari crew of two. You'll be responsible for putting up your own tent and everyone will pitch in with camp chores and with cooking. They're proper African adventures! If camping isn't for you, then we do offer an accommodated upgrade for each of these tours. You'll travel with the campers on exactly the same tour, and stay in the same places, except you'll get simple chalet accommodation instead of having to pitch a tent.

Africa Overland Camping Safaris

Our Overland Camping Safaris travel in larger groups, with a maximum size of 30 for a fun-filled adventure where you are guaranteed to make new friends! Escorted by a professional crew of three, you will camp at designated campsites and in the bush, helping to cook and set up camp.

Africa Overland Comfort Camping

Our Comfort Camping Safaris in Southern Africa are a nice compromise if you don't have the budget for a lodge safari, but don't like the idea of sleeping on the ground either. Whilst still staying in tents, you will sleep on raised camp beds on these tours. And there is no cooking or pitching of the tents, your experienced crew will handle all of this for you, so you can focus on spotting the wildlife and enjoying the scenery of Namibia, Botswana, South Africa and more!

Africa Lodge Safaris

Not a fan of camping? Our Lodge Safaris offer all the same incredible wildlife-spotting and sightseeing opportunities as the rest of our Africa group tours and safaris, but you can relax in the knowledge that you'll have a comfortable bed to sleep in at the end of the day. We make use of some of the best lodges in East and Southern Africa, many with their own private watering holes, swimming pools, onsite restaurants, and more. Perfect if you're planning a luxury African safari, perhaps for a honeymoon or a big birthday celebration!

Africa Private Safaris & Tours

Our Private Safaris & Tours in Africa are exactly that - private. If you don't want to travel on a group tour then these trips are perfect. Whether travelling in a couple, with your family or perhaps with a larger group of friends, these tours can be booked more flexibly - they can depart most days of the year and you can choose your own level of accommodation to suit your budget. Get in touch with our team today to find out more!

Africa Tailor-made Holidays

Explore the Africa you want to see. We'll do the legwork. You enjoy the ride.

Meet us in the Masai Mara's rolling plains of grassland savanna, home to tribal warriors and a diverse animal kingdom. Or visit Victoria Falls: a divider of countries, a wonder of the world, and a once-in-a-lifetime view. The swampy wilderness of the Okavango Delta is best explored by mokoro canoe and no African adventure is complete without a pit-stop on Zanzibar's idyllic stretches of white sand and blue sea. Your own slice of paradise.

Better late than never! How do you Review the best trip of a lifetime? Fifteen fabulous days in the "Truck", even a "bonus" day in Rwanda (which was not on the schedule). Our guide Mwangi, our driver. Nick and our chef, Jerrod (Jerrard?) were brilliant and were in total control of all the aspects of this well organised tour (including the great meals). Our hour in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest , in the almost-spiritual presence of the Kutu gorilla family of eight, was one of the most evocative moments of my life and I am now in my 85th year. The Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha, Lake Bunyoni and every other aspect of the tour, especially the extensive wild-lifel viewing, were sensational. My highlight; the 20 minutes in the presence of the family of the five male cheetahs on the Masai Mara - "Heaven" ; moments never to be forgotten. The trek was extremely well organised and many thanks to your Tim Johnson for his expert handling and understanding of our needs. The cost - Oh so reasonable for such a marvellous adventure. Ten out of Ten in every respect. Thank you so much.”

The trip was awesome. From the airport pick up to our guides escorting some of us to the border so we could leave early (corona :( )

We saw so many things and a great variety. We were safe and very well fed. Moonya? kept us happy and healthy with delicious mushroom sauce and yummy peanut cabbage. There was always a vegetarian option.

Becky keep us safe on the road and was an excellent driver and helped me with my tent.

Gift keep us organized and informed with a great sense of humour. His love of Africa always shone through. I did find some parts a bit slow. I did not really enjoy so many idle afternoons but some in the group did.The truck should have curtains and some small repairs to the seats but was pretty comfortable for the most part. A source of power in the back would make life much easier.

Campsites were almost all excellent. I was in a great group and the three weeks flew by.

I cannot say enough good things about our crew. A great trip.”
