Botswana

Botswana is perhaps southern Africa’s premier wildlife destination. Vast protected areas provide sanctuary to myriad species of animal and bird, include reintroduced white and black rhino.

Kenya

Kenya is a bit like the Swiss Army Knife of safari destinations: it does everything, and it does it all well.

Madagascar

Madagascar is known as the great red island thanks to its vivid soils. Once part of Africa, it split away many millions of years ago.

Malawi

Visit Malawi – with its red soils, banana plantations and the freshwater lake that covers much of its area – for a safari that’s quite different to southern Africa.

Maldives

The Maldives may be a little further from Africa, but they certainly fall within our area of expertise.

Mauritius

Picture-perfect tropical islands, with palm-fringed beaches and warm, azure waters teeming with coral reef life.

Mozambique

Mozambique travel means exploring an almost endless stretch of unspoiled coastline. The country boasts secluded beach and island hideaways, superb diving and excellent blue water fishing opportunities.

Namibia

Namibia travel can reveal Africa’s most captivating scenery, including towering red dunes and lonely shipwrecks on the desolate Skeleton Coast.

Rwanda

Rwanda has quietly been reinventing itself as a modern African success story, and a wonderful destination for discerning travellers.

Seychelles

The Seychelles islands are scattered like jewels across the Indian Ocean. Exclusive private islands offer pristine white sand beaches, warm azure waters and spectacular snorkelling and diving.

South Africa

South Africa truly offers ‘the world in one country’. With eleven official languages and landscapes ranging from golden beaches to rugged mountains, there is an incredible diversity of South Africa tour experiences to enjoy.

Tanzania

When you close your eyes and daydream about your African safari vacation, you’re probably picturing Tanzania travel: rolling golden savannah, snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, and restless migrating herds.

Uganda

Uganda is in many ways the heart of Africa. A land of ancient kingdoms, mysterious, cloud-wreathed mountains and Rift Valley Lakes, its people are as warm and friendly as its landscapes are awe-inspiring

Zambia

Zambia deserves to be a much better-known African safari destination, with its abundant wildlife and mesmerising wilderness areas.

Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe has always been an awesome safari destination – its wide rivers, teak woodlands and granite outcrops make it one of the most beautiful countries in Africa.
