When designing an African Safari tour, there are some decisions to make: The first is whether you want a private safari or a group safari. A shared safari in Africa is a great way to meet new people and reduce costs but we always recommend a private safari because the price difference is not very significant (sometimes none at all) and you’d be able to benefit from full itinerary customization, travel at your own rhythm and pace and have more free space in the car. That’s why we only organize private tailor made safaris.
A lodge safari can provide some of the most luxurious experiences in the world while still maintaining its traditional allure.
The second decision is whether you want to camp in budget public campsites or stay in luxury tented camps/lodges. This decision will depend on both your budget and comfort requisites. When you contact us to plan your safari, we will suggest different accommodation options for each park, recommending those we believe have the best quality for their price-range. A simple camping safari, besides helping to control the budget, can be an exciting and fun experience.
On the other hand, staying in a private tented camp or lodge can provide some of the most luxury experiences in the World while still maintaining a safari’s traditional allure and feeling of authenticity. You can take a look at some of the camps and lodges that we use more often for our African tour holidays, in our accommodation page . You may opt for the high end travel experience on the Luxury houseboat.
And finally, one has to decide the actual safari itinerary in terms of parks visited and total tour duration. To help you with this planning, we have included in this section a set of standard tours which we believe are the best options for different durations. All our tours are tailor made so we will use the itinerary that best suits your needs and then fine tune it to make it unique and perfect for you. A private safari can have one day or one month, can be spent in public campsites or tented camps/lodges or a mixture of both, can include parks from both the East and West circuit, etc.
For every detail and doubt about these itineraries or for building a custom private one, please contact us through our contact page. We will make a tailor-made itinerary that can include not only the safari but also transfers, accommodation in town before/after tours, internal flights and extension trip. In a few hours or minutes, we will design you a tailor made tour with fantastic value and adjusted to your wishes, preferences and budget requirements.
We prefer to make our guests wishes come true and maintain a flawless company record rather than more profit. We prefer to give you high-end binoculars that will greatly enhance your safari experience rather than cheap ones or none. We prefer to use the most experienced guides through a careful recruitment process and well maintained modern vehicles than old ones. For us, every customer is a new customer with a different set of feelings and expectations. With us, private African tours can be budget safaris with very affordable rates or they can be a luxury safari experience with balloon flights, high-end tented camps, exclusive services, etc. We will adapt to you, not the opposite.
Our guides are our real stars, the ones who can make the difference between a normal safari and a once in a lifetime experience and they are the reason why after several hundred safaris organized, we only have great feedback! In any case, you will know that the value you pay will be fair and that 5% of our profit will go out to help children in local schools.
