Take the African adventure of a lifetime, from bush to beach, city to ocean ...
Of course, Africa is the home of the wild and wonderful safari. In reserves and parks across this magnificent continent, safari-goers can expect to view the most awesome game in natural habitats and stay in beautiful camps, rich with the luxury of a bygone era.
But there is more to Africa than a standard safari. Both Kenya and Madagascar are home to stunning beaches and diving opportunities, or visit seal colonies in Namibia. Visit the iconic Victoria Falls in Zambia. South Africa delivers the ultimate in African experience with its luxury vineyards, gardens, culture and unique history. If all that isn’t enough, why not bolt on a few days in the UAE or Oman to make the most of your time away.
Following a two summer hiatus, demand is high for the best camps, hotels and resorts for 2022 and into 2023. If you want a seat to this epic adventure, now is the time to book. To get you thinking, take a look at just a few favourites from our Africa Specialist Lucie Thaxter …
ZAMBIA SAFARI & VICTORIA FALLS
On the banks of the Luangwa with the best views in Zambia’s Flatdogs Camp, are six luxury en-suite safari tents for an Africa safari tent experience that you will never forget. Stay here for 5 nights, where you may see leopard, giraffe, buffalo and elephants, among 100 species of mammals and over 400 bird species.
Travel on for a further 5 nights to Waterberry Lodge on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River upriver from the iconic Victoria Falls. Walking the paths around The Falls is an unmatched, awe-inspiring experience. And, a sunset cruise, drifting down the Zambezi into the setting sun, camera in hand, with sundowners and snacks is unmissable.
Botswana is known for its high end, niche market approach to safari tourism. However, it is possible to get a taste of this extraordinary country on a budget, with some incredible discounts on offer for early booking.
Over 6 nights/7 days stay in the private Khwai Reserve and sample game drives, night drives and walking safaris. Walk with the indigenous Bushmen, and discover the history and culture of the people of the Makgadikgadi. Travel between May and November to marvel at the second largest migration of mammals in Africa – watch as 40,000 zebra and wildebeest converge at the Boteti River.
Safari with a difference at Sosian Lodge in the Laikipia region of Kenya. Horse riders will love the horseback safari, which gives the opportunity to get even closer to the wildlife. Non-riders are not left out though, expert night & day game drives, walking safaris, camel treks, fishing, kayaking & waterfall jumping!
Spend a further 4 nights at the Offbeat Mara Camp where from July to October you will experience the annual wildebeest migration in its hundreds of thousands. It’s also home to several prides of lions made famous in ‘Big Cat Diary’, including the local pride, known as the Offbeat Pride which is almost part of the family!

This is South Africa to the max. The best, award-winning camp and hotels in this stunning rainbow nation. These three are all Condé Nast Traveler 2022 winners.
Named 2021 Luxury Private Game Reserve Global Winner at the World Luxury Hotel Awards, Cheetah Plains is located in South Africa’s incredible Sabi Sands reserve.

Finish your super-luxe South African adventure at Tintswalo Atlantic, Cape Town’s hidden gem. A magical venue on the ocean side with magnificent views of Hout Bay, where the soul and sea meet.
There are few corners of the world which can compete with the spectacle of Madagascar. Cut off from the African land mass, this huge island is home to unique species of flora and fauna, most famously its native lemurs.
With so much to see and do, it makes an incredible family adventure, taking a good three weeks to explore. Venture out on forest night walks in the national parks, hang with lemurs and chameleons, visit Baobab Alley and fly over the amazing Tsingy of Bemaraha.
Complete your trip by the Indian Ocean coast where you’ll have the chance to see dolphins, whales, whale sharks, turtles and perhaps manta rays.
Your first 2 nights on the flying safari are at Kwessi Dunes, before you swoop over the vast Namib Desert and the towering dunes of Sossusvlei from above. Touch down briefly for a beach lunch in Swakopmund, and then back to the sky for an incredible flight over the Atlantic Coastline and inland to the Hoanib Valley for 2 nights to perhaps spot desert lion, rhino and the desert-adapted giraffe.
Leave the plane behind for the spectacular drive to the Skeleton Coast to stay for 2 nights at Shipwreck Lodge. Expect giraffe, lion, baboons, elephant and elusive brown hyena in the dunes, whilst at the coast you’ll find hundreds of Cape fur seals.
