Wildlife Holidays in Africa

Few wildlife enthusiasts can resist Africa. It is the world’s top wildlife destination, where matchless wildlife viewing is set against a backdrop of sun-baked landscapes, huge skies and friendly people. Our wildlife tours in Africa take in the Middle East, North and Sub-Saharan Africa as well as the Indian Ocean Islands.

Africa casts a spell on visitors. Once you’ve had a taste of its extraordinary diversity of wildlife, warm people and spectacular scenery you’ll want to return again and again.

Our Africa specialist recommends ...

“If you love cats, our ‘South Africa – Just Cats!’ tour offers an opportunity to see all seven African cat species plus wild dogs! ‘Tanzania Highlights’ is an excellent all-round introduction to African wildlife. Tours for those on a budget include the excellent ‘Zambia’s Mammals’ or our bargain bird trip to Botswana." - Paul Stanbury

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Africa HOLIDAYS

I am most grateful that you gave the go-ahead to out recent butterfly trip, despite the small numbers. It was most enjoyable, with mostly good weather and good numbers of butterflies and birds seen. Martin is an excellent birder... Paul Huckle,... is very experienced and came well equipped. Distinguishing the butterflies is much harder than for birds!
The service level from Lawsons was amazing. Rob McKenzie & Leon Marais were knowledgeable, far sighted (showing us things we would have missed), good company and excellent chefs. We saw and amazing amount of game in the first week at Kruger with almost too many highlights to mention but a pack of wild dogs, a procession of ostriches crossing the road and being investigated by a band of dwarf mongoose was amongst them. The second week did not disappoint either as we were able to identify many of the beautiful butterflies including 5 different Emporers. Highlights have to be the Gaudy Commodore and the Paradise Skipper – both beautiful to see. We were shown a range of differing habitats where each yielded new species. Overall, this trip had everything for the generalist – mammals, birds and butterflies and vegetation so it was impossible not to be excited.
The Ethiopian Wolves trip was excellent. Both guides were extremely good and very well organised. They worked hard to make the most of the trip for all involved.
