Safari Holidays


Arguably the ultimate wildlife-viewing holiday, a safari holiday in Africa offers the opportunity for a host of incredible experiences.

Set off across acacia-dotted plains as the sun starts to brighten the horizon, witness a pride of lions stalk their prey across the savannah and pass waterways teeming with hippos. Or perhaps catch the thundering passage of the wildebeest migration or trek to see mountain gorillas. As the sun sets, end an unforgettable day on safari sharing stories around the camp fire.

Trailfinders offers the widest choice of safaris throughout Africa’s iconic wildlife parks. Whether you are looking to visit a variety of reserves, wanting to include just a few days' wildlife viewing as part of your holiday, or are looking to stay in a simple tented camp or a luxury lodge, our dedicated team of safari experts will help choose the right safari for you.

    Fly Drive Holidays In South Africa and Namibia, good roads and a well-developed infrastructure make it easy to combine a safari as part of a longer fly drive itinerary.

    OUR RECOMMENDED SAFARI CAMPS & LODGES

    Whether you prefer a safari lodge or the back-to-nature feel of a tented camp, Africa is blessed with a diverse range of accommodation options. Top end camps and lodges often boast an unbeatable location or unique architecture and each will seek to deliver truly personalised experiences that will be cherished for a lifetime. Luxury properties tend to offer fewer rooms, excellent guides, enhanced dining experiences and a wider selection of activities. A tented camp provides a truly authentic and intimate safari experience – forget ‘roughing it’ these camps range from rustic and charming to the ultimate in chic, authentic luxury.
