Truly Amazing Safari Holidays

For over 24 years we've been making safari dreams come true. Of course the reality of being 50 yards from an elephant family cavorting in the refreshing Zambezi at sunset is better than any dream could be. Your days will be filled with magical moments like these. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll probably fall in love with this beautiful wild continent.

Africa Exclusive is personally run by owners John Burdett and Warwick Hoffman. Our team has real depth of Africa experience and share our passion. We have the right expertise and all the advantages of a mid-sized specialist. We are highly respected throughout Africa, partly because lodges find our guests so well prepared for their safari.

This website introduces you to the Africa we love. Call and tell us about yourself and what you're hoping for in your holiday. We'll listen carefully and use our expertise to design the perfect African holiday for you.

family safari is a unique shared adventure your family will treasure.  Imagine the moment your children see their first elephant family playing by the Zambezi River.  Or herds of zebra and giraffe roaming the Serengeti plains!  You can meet African children in a remote village school and finish up with a few days relaxing beside the Indian Ocean.

We’ve been arranging fantastic family holidays for over 24 years.  They aren’t “watered down” in any way, so you fly into luxury remote camps and lodges.  And we usually arrange a private guide and vehicle to give you freedom to follow your interests doing everything at the pace that suits your family.  You can go on drives, walks, boats, even horseback if you ride. 

Children aged four and upwards can explore Tanzania or Kenya mostly in vehicles where the big herds are easy to find.  For older families with teenagers it can be a terrific “last family holiday” you’ll talk about for the rest of your lives. View our family pages



How it Works

An Africa Exclusive tailormade safari holiday, like a tailormade suit of clothes, is expertly designed to fit you perfectly.  Our aim is that each day will bring you new joys and wonders – a fulfilment of your dreams.

So the first step is to speak over the phone with one of our expert safari designers.  They all know and love Africa intimately.  Ask questions.  Tell us what you‘d love to see and do while you’re in Africa - the style of accommodation you prefer – places you’ve longed to visit.  You don’t need any knowledge of Africa to have the call.

We then use our expertise to design a holiday perfectly suited to your tastes, timings and desires.  We send it to you beautifully presented and continue the discussion and fine tuning until you’re completely satisfied that we’ve got it right.  We make all the arrangements with meticulous care. We ensure you're properly prepared so you can sit back and look forward to the moment you fly away on your holiday of a lifetime.
