Travel Butlers: African Safari Holiday Specialists

Our Experience, Your Adventure

See the best of Africa With Travel Butlers

Africa is a continent of epic romance. From sweeping plains that stretch into the horizon to vast deserts, huge canyons and tropical beaches, Africa is rich with beauty. And then there’s the wildlife. Nowhere else in the world can you see elephants gathering around a waterhole at sunset, lion cubs playing in the savannah and wildebeest migrating in their thousands across the plains. It is a magically diverse and totally addictive place.

Many people set off on a once-in-a-lifetime safari holiday to Africa only to fall in love and return year after year. Africa has a way of getting under your skin that will leave you longing to jump on a plane and go straight back.

At Travel Butlers, we are self-confessed Africa addicts. Our company has grown directly from our love of the continent and we’ve travelled to Africa countless times ourselves. We’ll use our own personal experiences and years of expertise to build you an unforgettable safari holiday in Africa. From first-time Africa holidays to honeymoons, we’ll really listen and tailor your trip to your own individual needs and budget.

Simply call us on 01932 428380 to talk through your wishes or get in touch via the website, and we’ll start planning the Africa safari holiday of your dreams. We guarantee that, just like us, you’ll be hooked on Africa in no time!

Safari and Beach

You can’t beat a safari and beach holiday. By following a heart-thumping African safari with total relaxation on the tropical white shores of the Indian Ocean, you will get the very best of both worlds. Adding an exotic beach retreat to the end of your safari will give real balance to your holiday, letting you completely unwind before heading home to reality. It’s like rolling two brilliant holidays into one!

There are lots of different ways to combine your safari holiday with a beach escape. For inspiration, take a look at some of our safari and beach holiday suggestions, featuring Kenya, Tanzania, or South Africa.

Cape Town

Without a doubt, Cape Town is one of the world’s most beautiful cities, from the splendour of Table Mountain to the white sandy beaches of the Cape Peninsula, and the lively atmosphere of the V&A Waterfront.

There’s so much to see and do in Cape Town, from poignant boat trips to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned to open air concerts in the stunning Kirstenbosch National Gardens and, of course, the cable car to the top of Table Mountain.

It’s not only a must for first-time visitors to South Africa, but a captivating city that many people fall hopelessly in love with, returning time and again.

Kruger National Park

The private game reserves and lodges of the Greater Kruger Park offer some of the best Big 5 game viewing in all of Africa. You’ll take guided safaris through the bush to track lions and leopards as the sun sets, stopping for a atmospheric sundowner on the plains. You’ll also set off on dawn safaris in search of big cats, elephants and giraffes gathering around waterholes in the cool of the morning. Between these safaris you can relax by the lodge pool, soaking up the African sun before your next wildlife adventure. Bliss!

We have personal knowledge of all of the Kruger lodges and reserves that we offer, so we’ll help you pick the perfect one for your South Africa holiday.

Client Rating for Travel Butlers Ltd: 4.8 / 5.0 based on 757 ratings

We had a fantastic holiday which most certainly met our expectations. We have done two previous safaris, which were in the Eastern Cape, but the Timbavati reserve outclasses those by far and is the real thing. Everything was professionally organised and we would have no hesitation in booking with you again.

Choosing Your Safari

If seeing the wildlife is the main reason for your trip to Africa, it may be better to start planning your trip based on the type of experience you want rather than with a fixed idea on which country to visit.

We would recommend different  places depending on the time of year you are travelling, what you want to see, if you have children with you, and of course your budget and the type of lodge that you prefer.


Whale Watching

From July to November each year the southern coast of South Africa offers some of the world's best whale watching as thousands of whales come to the region to have their calfs.


The Great Migration

The wildebeest migration in East Africa is one of the world's greatest natural events, and we can get you to the center of the action in Kenya or Tanzania.


pack for a purpose

Many of the properties we feature support Pack for a Purpose, an initiative set up to enable travellers to make meaningful contributions to help meet the needs of the places they visit.
