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
This was an excellent trip with a great group of people. The lodge is very pleasant and the little pool very inviting. Food was consistently good, especially brunch which we shared with the squirrels most days. Staff lovely and very helpful. A great way to spend a week. Staying in one place meant we began to know the area and its wildlife in a bit more depth. The thunder storms were spectacular! Thanks again for a great trip.
The holiday was amazing. The tour leader, Matambo, was excellent as were the camp staff. They all worked tirelessly to make our holiday as comfortable as possible, nothing was too much trouble. The food was extremely tasty . The wildlife that we saw was wonderful, varied and at extremely close quarters but at no time did we feel unsafe. The settings for the camps were lovely, especially the one by the lake. All in all, the holiday was everything we expected and more. We would and are recommending it to everyone. Thank you for an amazing time.
One of our best Naturetrek holidays so far. We are looking forward to many more, but would recommend this to anyone wanting to see the 'real' Africa.
