Travel Butlers: African Safari Holidays Specialists

Our Experience, Your Adventure

See the best of Africa With Travel Butlers

Elephant On The African SavannaAfrica 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.

Safari and Beach

Relax On A Safari And Beach Holiday

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.

Seeing the Wild Dogs of Africa
The African wild dog, or the Painted Dog as it is also called, is now unfortunately one of Africa's endangered species. Changing habitats and disease have caused the population to drop rapidly, and it is estimated that there are now only between 3,000 and 5,000 left in the wild. Read more...

Ebola Outbreak: Should I Cancel My Trip To Africa?
Following the very moving Ebola appeal that was aired on all major TV channels in the UK last night, we have been contacted by a number of clients asking the same questions: should I cancel my trip to Africa? It is easy to understand the worry and distress that the Ebola coverage is causing in the UK, however Africa is huge and the whole of Southern and East Africa is literally thousands of miles away from the outbreak and all the countries that we book for our clients are considered safe from the disease. To put this into context, the outbreak in West Africa is over 3500 miles away from Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa, and over 3,000 miles from Botswana and Namibia - London is about 3000 miles from the affected area, so many of these places are further from the centre of the outbreak than the UK.

A Private Slice of Tropical Paradise
We were asked whether we wanted to include one night on Denis Island, as part of our recent educational trip to the Seychelles in August. I think it took me less of a second to say yes please! Who would not say yes to the idea of spending one night on your very own private island in the middle of the Indian Ocean? It is not something I get to do every day, I will admit! Our night to Denis Island was scheduled towards the end of our week in Seychelles, on the Thursday. Read more...

Choosing Your Safari

Cheetah On The LookoutIf 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.
