An African classic safari is one of the continent’s unrivalled experiences. Classic tours are a perfect way to experience the culture, wildlife, history and highlights of a destination, with a level of comfort and organisation that allows you to relax and enjoy an authentic travel experience without having to rough it.
Soft-edged savannahs, palm-fringed beaches, footprint-free private islands… Africa is home to some of the world’s most idyllic, perfect destinations as well as sensational accommodation.
Classic safaris usually involve a big game safari, you’ll enjoy candlelight and wilderness thrills in Africa’s greatest wildlife reserves before revelling in the sensation of sand between your toes at some of the best Indian Ocean destinations.
Africa’s private Game reserves have all along been famous destinations with off-the-beaten-track safari destinations that feature luxurious, tucked-away lodges and Hemingway-style tented camps that combine complete privacy with stylish exclusivity for the classic traveller. And what destinations!Uganda, Botswana, Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania,Zanzibar, Zambia, Zimbabwe.
Despite the wild and remote nature of many of our safari and beach destinations, there are no great logistical challenges. Regular flights from travel hubs Nairobi and Johannesburg ensure seamless connections between East and Southern African safari destinations and the Indian Ocean coast and islands, though you may need an overnight city stopover in between.
In locations where travellers like to have the choice of what they want to do, activities and excursions have been left as optional. Optional single supplements are available on all Classic Tours.
