Nothing ignites the imagination like an awe-inspiring African adventure, packed with family-friendly game drives, camping under the stars, diving, snorkelling or quad-biking.
First Time Safaris
When planning your first safari it can be hard to know where to start – let us help you navigate the parks, reserves, lodges and camps to design a tailor-made safari adventure that will live up to your life-long expectations and really showcase Africa’s highlights.
First-time safaris will typically take in Kenya or South Africa – both are fantastic destinations offering the perfect introduction to the wonders of safari.
If you’re looking for up-close encounters with Africa’s big cats, there is no place better than Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. You can even plan your trip to coincide with the wildebeest migration – widely considered as the greatest wildlife show on earth. For elephants a must is Kenya’s Samburu Reserve where you will find a seriously impressive population of elephants (especially near the Ewaso Ngiro River), as well as a host of other species.
South Africa is great for first timers or those short on time as it packs in many of Africa’s best highlights. The Kruger for example is one of Africa’s finest wildlife havens, with more species of large mammal than any other reserve, as well as over 500 bird species. For an affordable safari experience you can choose to self-drive through the main National Park. Combine your safari with a city break in Cape Town and beach relaxation on the coast for a balanced trip.
