Africa Safari Tours
There’s something about Africa that touches the soul. History isn’t trapped in bricks and mortar here – it’s everywhere. You feel it in the stories of the people, the pounding tribal rhythms and the blazing Serengeti sunsets.
This is an old land, and it’s very, very good at breaking down preconceptions. People who come expecting a David Attenborough documentary leave with something else: it may be the hiss of waves on a beach in Zanzibar or the tribal drums of the Maasai, perhaps the silhouettes of boabs in Madagascar or the rustle of a mountain gorilla in the Ugandan rainforest.
Each of our trips is designed to get under Africa’s skin, but don’t be surprised if this continent ends up getting under yours. Once experienced, it’s never quite forgotten.
