Wildlife Safaris

“You know you are truly alive when you’re living among lions.”
― Karen Blixen, Out of Africa

The sheer variety, scale and depth of the wildlife experience Africa offers is beyond compare. The greatest migrations of large herbivores happen in Tanzania and Kenya’s Serengeti-Mara Ecosystem, Zambia’s Liuwa Plains and Botswana’s Makgadikgadi.

For quieter, more intimate interactions with wildlife, coming up on a lion on a walking safari in Zambia’s South Luangwa, observing a mother leopard and her cubs in South Africa’s Sabi Sands or Timbavati, or paddling a canoe past a bull elephant in the Okavango Delta are moments that will always remain etched in your memory. If you’re prepared to think outside the box, hiking through Ethiopia’s Bale Mountains for the highly-endangered Ethiopian wolf, or witnessing the world’s largest bat migration in Zambia’s Kasanka are a privilege afforded to the very few.

Each place in Africa has its own particular brand of magic, and this means that whatever your experience, time, budget, pace or need, we will always have the luxury of being able to design a wildlife safari that is right for you.

Options For Wildlife Safaris

Lions in the Masai Mara, Kenya

There are a bewildering number of choices to be made, but we will guide you past the potential pitfalls. The big question is whether to come and immerse yourself in a single country for the entire time you’re here, or whether you wish to visit two or three countries, cherry-picking the highlights from each to create an ultimate African safari.

It’s not just about the wildlife though: Africa has so much else to offer. You may want to combine a traditional wildlife safari with gorilla tracking, adventure activities, a cultural detour or even a few days on the beach. It can be as intense or relaxed as you want it to be – the choice is yours

 

Planning And Preparation Required

Many wildlife events in Africa are seasonal, so it’s important to check with us to see if a particular attraction will be available when you plan to travel. The rainy season is when many camps close, as animals disperse away from water sources, but in a few cases, the rainy season causes animals to congregate. In the rainy season, the light and skies are often the best time for photography, as the haze and dust are washed away.

The dry season causes smaller rivers to dry up altogether, leaving the main water courses as the only available way for animals to slake their thirst. This causes them to congregate, making viewing the wildlife and the interactions between them easier to observe. it is also when most people travel to Africa

The seasons vary between east and southern Africa, with the only broad similarity being that the dry season runs from June to about October. Check each of our individual destination pages for more specifics on the seasons for individual countries.
