Safari holidays are perfect for lovers of wildlife, explorers of the great outdoors and everything in between.
Imagine spending your mornings on a guided walk through the African bush, sailing through South American rivers on the hunt for aquatic life or driving through national parks with expert guides behind the wheel. Relax in the afternoon before heading out one last time to spot even more wildlife. Return to your accommodation to enjoy a delicious dinner and drinks with your fellow guests, reminiscing about your day’s finds. Finally, retire to your accommodation and fall asleep to the sounds of wildlife in the distance. You can’t wait to do it all again the next day.
On a safari holiday, the animals are just part of the experience.
Safaris can range from luxury tented camps in the heart of private nature reserves, comfortable hotel rooms on the edge of a national park, or a safari lodge surrounded by breath-taking scenery. Each has its own charms and we would be delighted to talk you through which is best for you.
Where to go on a safari holiday
You can visit Africa to tick off the ‘Big 5’ - leopards, lions, buffalo, elephants and rhinos, but the continent is also home to some fascinating creatures and endangered species that you’d still be incredibly lucky to see. African painted dogs, lemurs, cheetahs and hyenas are just some, but in reality the list is endless.
Of course, safaris aren’t just for Africa – all continents of the world have fascinating wildlife just waiting for you to find.
In Asia, you could try your luck on a search for tigers in India, leopards in Sri Lanka or pandas in China. In Europe, visit Scandinavia to find reindeer, explore Finland to find bears or even head up to Scotland to find puffins. South America is home to one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world, and you could see capybaras, jaguars and caimans on a trip to Brazil. In North America, will you be lucky enough to find timber wolves, brown bears or some beautiful species of birds? Or perhaps you want to venture to Antarctica to find polar bears and whales?
Once you’ve been bitten by the safari bug, you’ll want to go again and again.
