Types of Safari
Different Types of Safaris across Southern and East Africa
Travel Butlers can help you book a wide range of different safari experiences, and it really all does depend on what you want, and what your budget is, as to which type of safari is best suited to you.
Excellent close up game viewing opportunities with an experienced and knowledgeable guide, wonderful accommodation, all-inclusive rates, and being able to tailor your safari experience to when you want to go - these are just some of the advantages of a safari in a private safari lodge.
Whether you want the luxury of a suite with its own private plunge pool, or the romance of sleeping under canvas in one of the many tented camps and lodges - you will be assured of a wonderful and unforgettable safari experience.
This option is ideal for safari goers who are either on a tighter budget, or who want the freedom and excitement of exploring the African bush on their own.
With set departure dates, and normally a maximum of 15 passengers in total, these tours are perfect if you do not want to drive yourself around a new country.
From a gentle one hour amble with your guide, to a full day walk between camps, walking in the African bush can give you a different perspective compared to the normal view most people experience from a game vehicle.
Learn more about the bush, and get to see and touch and smell it first hand. Look at the ground and spot the animal tracks made during the night. And even get close to the wildlife.
Experiencing the African bush from the high vantage point from atop an elephant's back, or riding amongst giraffe and rhino on a pure bred Arabian horse, or trekking through a forest to find silverback gorillas...
These are 3 of the more popular safari experiences that you can enjoy as an alternative to viewing Africa’s wildlife from a game viewing vehicle.
