Top 10 Safari Tours

Just like a colourful handmade African basket, there are so many different ways that we can weave together an Africa trip for you. Our African safaris Top 10 Tours are a selection of past client’s itineraries that have received great feedback and that we know work well in terms of logistics.

The Best Safaris in Southern & East Africa

Southern and East Africa is a vast part of the continent and distances are great. Plus there are countless ‘bucket list’ destinations and experiences to choose from. Whether this is your first trip or whether you’re an experienced safari goer, there is bound to be a combination of once-in-a-lifetime experiences that we can put together for you, so you get the best of Africa. From gorilla trekking in the rain forests to coming face to face with a cheetah in the Masa Mara; from souring over the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti in a hot air balloon, to being the only couple on an island off the coast of Mozambique; from tasting fabulous wines in the Cape, to climbing the highest sand dune in Namibia – the options and permutations are endless!

Tailor-make Your Top Safari Trip

Our Top 10 Tours give you inspiring ideas depending on how much time you have, your budget and the destinations you are interested in. But bear in mind that we understand that your circumstance, likes and wishes are unique and at the end of the day we prefer to tailor-make itineraries so that they perfectly suit our clients. In this regard, these tours are by no means cast in stone. So scroll through them, get ideas and then get in touch and we’ll custom design a trip just for you. Our skills lie in listening to you and your partner, your family or special interest group, matching you with the right safari lodge or experience and then joining the dots between destinations so that your trip is flawless from start to finish.

Let your imagination flow and let us create your perfect African safari.
