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.

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.
