Tailormade Holidays to Africa

Few wildlife enthusiasts can resist Africa. Its wide, sun-baked landscapes, huge skies, and friendly people offer a warmth and calm that are the quintessential ingredients of the classic holiday. The bold and colourful birdlife of the African continent, and unrivalled abundance and variety of its wild animals, underline its status as the world’s top wildlife destination. The continent offers the choice of some of the very best hotels, wildlife lodges and permanent tented camps in the world, or alternatively those looking to get ‘back to nature’ might prefer South Africa’s more basic rest camps or Botswana’s exhilarating mobile camping safaris. The wildlife options of Africa are boundless. Search for Mountain Gorillas in Uganda; explore the expansive and majestic waterways of the great Okavango Delta in Botswana, enjoy the ultimate thrill of a walking safari in Zambia, or discover the spectacular landscapes and rich history of Ethiopia. Namibia too offers spectacular desert landscapes, whilst Madagascar’s lemurs and other endemic wildlife make it a fantastic and unique choice. The birdlife of Kenya is unrivalled and the mammals of Tanzania are truly extraordinary, not to mention the fabulous flora of South Africa’s Cape and Namaqualand regions (and the wines of course!) .— These are just some aspects of the continent’s rich tapestry which we will look to incorporate in each of our Tailormade holidays … and the reasons why you are most likely to return again and again!

Our Tailormade Destinations in Africa

Image

Botswana


Botswana is one of Africa's finest wildlife destinations, offering large concentrations of game and a diverse and beautiful range of habitations. In its huge unfenced game reserves the largest herds in southern Africa roam free and wild, together with the continent's most spectular and varied birdlife.

Kenya


Kenya is Africa...in microcosm. Indeed, it is where the concept of the safari began - the word 'safari' meaning 'a journey' in Swahili. Although it is a small country in contrast with others on the continent, Kenya boasts an unrivalled variety of habitats, altitudes and reserves which hold some of the largest herds of game left on the continent, as well as good number of attendant preditors, amongst them Lion, Cheetah and Leopard.

Ethopia


Ethopia is very special - unique amongst African countries in its rich blend of truly spectacular scenery, its extraordinarily rich culture, archaeology and history, and its wealth and African wildlife, from classic plains game and preditors to a rich variety of endemic birds and mammals.

Image

Madagascar


Madagascar's isolation from mainland Africa from 165 million years has allowed evolution to run a unique course: thus, today over 80% of all Malagasy wildlife is endemic, occuring nowhere else on Earth. Further, new species continue to be discovered here and it is this unknown 'other-worldliness' that makes Madagascar such a rewarding and exciting wildlife destination.

Malawi


Malawi is a fabulous, suprisingly overlooked African destination. There are excellent lowland wildlife reserves, which have many species that are difficult to see elsewhere, as well as the oppertunities for mountain walking and lakeside relaxation.

Namibia


Namibia is a vast country - three times the size of its one-time coloniist, Germany, yet with a population of only 2.3 million people. It is a land of spectacular desert landscapes, brick-red sand dunes, deep blue skies and a dramatic wave-pounded coastline. Exploring this starkly beautiful country, and looking for its hardy wildlife, is a uniquely exciting experience, and one that is aided by an excellent network of roads and some of the best lodges in Africa.

South Africa


The 'Rainbow Nation' of South Africa is blessed with an astonishing biological diversity and a wealth of dramatic landscapes.
