Why choose our African wildlife safaris?
When people think of visiting Africa, safari holidays are regularly at the top of the list. Riding in an open-top jeep along dusty tracks and looking out across the sun-baked savannah teeming with big game is arguably one of life’s best experiences.
For the wildlife enthusiast, Naturetrek Africa safari holidays offer unparalleled opportunities. The continent holds a staggering variety of wildlife, including some of the world’s most iconic mammals and birds. Many of these animals are incredibly abundant in number and relatively easy to observe, guaranteeing that our African safari tours are full of amazing sightings.
From the Okavango Delta in Botswana and Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park, to Namibia’s Etosha National Park and Kruger in South Africa, our African wildlife safaris ensure that the continent is truly un-missable.
Classic Africa safari holidays
We offer classic safari-style packages to Botswana, Zambia, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa and Namibia. On these African safari tours you will stay in or very near the prime game-rich areas such as national parks and reserves, heading out daily for wildlife watching in vehicles. There will usually be additional chances to join night drives and look for nocturnal species.
On the majority of our African wildlife safaris, even those in our bargain range, we are able to use superb accommodation, even in remote locations … and tented, fully serviced camps with private facilities are the norm.
Expert naturalist guides
All of our African safari tours are led by expert naturalist guides. Our bargain tours are led solely by local naturalists, while on most of our other safaris there is a Naturetrek naturalist leader from the UK in addition to local guides.
What wildlife might I see?
Africa is the best place in the world for seeing large concentrations of big game such as Elephant, Lion, Buffalo, Giraffe and Wildebeest. On Naturetrek’s African safari tours we visit some of the world’s most famous national parks and reserves such as the Serengeti and Masai Mara as well as some more remote regions, in search of a superb variety of the continent’s mammals from Hippos and Leopards to bushbabies and African Wildcats.
The birdlife is staggering. Naturetrek’s African wildlife safaris offer a chance to search for a superb variety of species, from flamingo-lined lakes in the Rift Valley and giant Ostriches strutting across endless savannah, to tiny finches and colourful bee-eaters.

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR African Safaris HOLIDAYS
A fantastic wildlife experience, amazing to get so close to totally wild large (and small!) mammals, and to watch them interacting and leading their lives. Great to see that the reserves (both kruger and sabi) are being so well managed and that the wildlife is flourishing there. Particularly exciting were the leopards, the lions eating a kudu, the hyena den with cute cubs, and the jackal family. The game drives in Sabi are superbly well organised. Our drives in Kruger led by Leon and Rob were superb, they were both excellent leaders. Birds were wonderful and also the lizards, invertebrates, etc, so a lot more to this holiday than just the mammals.
The accommodation at Kapani was excellent and greatly exceeded my expectations. The food was wonderful and the setting of the lodge is perfect. Rose, who runs the lodge, was efficient, friendly and a lovely person, and all the staff did a great job. Our guide, Sam, showed us lots of wonderful animals, including a pack of hunting dogs, a leopard and an African wild cat...I cannot fault his skill or his love for the park.
I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed and benefitted from this trip. In every way it was more than I ever expected, in terms of organization, information, value for money, preparation; and when I got there, it was just out of this world. Delightful, efficient guides, superb birdwatching, excellent service and accommodation, good transport, enviable local knowledge of wildlife, birds, fauna and flora, warm send-offs and welcomes-back, individual attention, complimentary laundry, good library/reference/experts available and outstanding food and hospitality. I am booking up to go back as soon as I can! Naturetrek - you are wonderful!
