While safari.com specialises in TAILOR-MADE TOURS for all budgets, built to your specific style and requirements, sometimes an excellent way to skip the hassle of planning your African Safari vacation is selecting a tour from some of our best itineraries.
Safaris to the ultimate Big Five destinations South Africa has to offer. Embark on guided tours to the famous Kruger National Park including game enriched private reserves such as the Sabi Sand, Timbavati, Thornybush and Kapama.
Africa is one of the most romantic destinations in the world, natural scenic beauty, paradise islands with palm trees and warm Indian Ocean waters and romantic camp fires that radiate a crimsom orange hue below a clear sky that twinkles with a millions stars.
These are the memories that your kids will be talking about in fifteen years time, an African family safari can provide incredible shared experiences that are unique, educational, thought-provoking and perhaps even, a huge lesson on gratefulness.
Aside from being a phenomenal wildlife adventure through some incredible wilderness areas, there are beach experiences, adrenalin and activity experiences like zipline tours, Segway 4x4 routes, surfing, quad biking or sand boarding. There are a number of unique cultural activities and events that display the cultural diversity of the African continent.
The combination of a Sabi Sand luxury game lodge and an Indian Ocean beach paradise is surely one of the best holidays imaginable. From the fast-paced urban rat race to an environment that does not answer to a digital clock, the elephants march to their own rhythm and the other plains animals answer to their stomachs as they go in search of more tasty grasses. And the locals on the islands, they don't appear to ever be rushed off their feet. This is real downtime where you can catch up with yourselves and recharge your inner soul, soak up the vitamin D from the sun that will give you that radiance and glow to make you feel great.
These three iconic destinations: Victoria Falls, Kruger Park and Cape Town are like having three awesome holidays wrapped up into one trip. Two 'Wonders-of-the-World" and one of the best wildlife reserves in Southern and East Africa. Game drives, white water rafting, bungee jumping, microlite flights, Chobe River cruise, Table Mountain cableway, wine tasting in the Cape Winelands, shopping in the V&A Waterfront or visiting the African penguins in Simons Town, these are just some of the experiences that are available to you.
Mountain gorillas can only be found in 3 countries in the world in East Africa which are Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
There is a lot of planning and preparation involved in gorilla trekking safari and pre-booked permits are essential.
With only about 790 Mountain Gorillas remaining in the world and half of them living in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the Mgahinga Gorilla Park. Gorillas trekking can be conducted all year round in Uganda & Rwanda, but due to the rainy seasons, the preferred months to visit are from June to September as well as from December up to February.
Exploring the bushveld on foot and in relative silence is a unique experience compared to sitting in the back of a noisy Land Rover. It a lot simpler to get up close and personal to the wildlife that you are hoping to meet. An experienced guide or park ranger will know the character traits of the wildlife, both big and small, and from which direction to approach in order to provide the best view without disturbing their activities.
Island paradise where you can relax and unwind, soak up the sun, lock your mobile phone and watch away. And to top it all, submerge yourself into the warm tropical waters to discover another world where Clown Fish, Neon Tetra, Zebrafish, Rainbow sharks and Dwarf rainbowfish coexist.
When you join an Africa Overland safari, you will be met at the airport or the designated starting point, taken to a hotel or a central meeting point and briefed before you set off. You will be transported in a well-maintained, Toyota 4×4 safari vehicle or similar, driven by a professional local guide in areas that will leave you breathless with wonder and excitement. You will be amazed by the sheer beauty of grass-covered savannas, mountains, extinct volcanoes and rare birds. You will see amazing animals, landscapes and flowers, meet the local people and savor the tastes, sights and smells of exotic destinations.
