There’s no doubt an African safari should be top of your bucket-list. But where to go?
SAFARI: IT'S A MUST
Perhaps one of the world’s most breathtaking and once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences we as humans can enjoy; here we take a deeper look at our iconic safari adventures and what makes them different from one another. Because securing your spot on a safari adventure that’s exactly right for you is a must for any solo traveller…
Bucket-List South Africa
Looking for safari, and then some? Our Bucket-List South Africa adventure, filled with adrenaline-inducing activities – think abseiling down Table Mountain in Cape Town and snorkelling through kelp forests with Octopi – as well as those iconic safari moments, might just be the trip for you. When it comes to the safari itself, you’ll enjoy staying in a classic safari lodge in Kruger National Park, spotting the Big 5 over two days of game drives and gorgeous meals in the wilderness. Add to this private wine tours, gin tastings, gorge ziplining and fascinating lessons in Soweto history and you’ve got an all-encompassing adventure that showcases the best of South Africa.
Kenya: Masai Mara safari
From all-encompassing African adventure to a much more safari-focussed itinerary in the land it was invented – if you’re looking for unadulterated wildlife watching (with some extra Flash Pack activities thrown in), this Kenya adventure is for you. Over seven days you’ll experience thrilling game drives through the world-famous Masai Mara in search of the Big Five. You’ll get up close and personal to some of Africa’s most intriguing animals on a wildlife cycling tour (yep, two wheels, no car) and you’ll stay in some beautiful, classic safari lodges. And as for the additional activities, think heart-thumping rides across the forest canopy on East Africa’s longest zipline and traditional Maasai dinners shared with like-minded travellers under a star-studded sky.
Celebrating a milestone birthday? Looking for the ultimate treat? Want to do something few people on earth have had the luxury of experiencing? Say hello to our Wild Tanzania adventure. When we say once-in-a-lifetime, we mean it. We’re talking sleeping at an award-winning, one-of-its-kind Land Rover camp at the heart of the Serengeti (complete with private chef), endless opportunities to spot the Big 5 and a stint on the beaches of Zanzibar. Completely off-grid, you’ll enjoy wildlife watching at the heart of the action, and feast on exquisite meals beneath a star-strewn sky. And ending with a Robinson Crusoe fantasy on the isle of Zanzibar only elevates this experience to even greater heights. White-sand, beach-front hotel and uninterrupted views of crystalline seas. Sign us up.
Tanzania: Kili to Crater
Perhaps our most culturally immersive, 360 offering in Africa; this Tanzania adventure is ideal for those of you interested in safari, but perhaps not enough to dedicate a whole trip to. Taking you deep into the fabric of Tanzania, you’ll have the chance to wander sky-high trails on Mt. KIlimanjaro, enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in the Serengeti and rub shoulders with locals at a Massai village, learning about their way of life. You’ll picnic in the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, keeping an eye out for resident hippos, wander through colourful tribal markets and, to top it all off, spend your last few days in Zanzibar. Based in Stone Town, you’ll have a couple of free days to immerse yourself in the turbulent slave history of the island, before toasting to an eye-opening, educative and wildlife-filled adventure on a sundowner cruise across azure waters.
