You may not know much about Africa – call us anyway and tell us about yourselves, what you enjoy doing, dreams of Africa you’d like to fulfil. The essence of these holidays is that they take you to beautiful remote parts of Africa where you can enjoy the wildlife, landscapes and culture with expert guides far from the crowds. Designed for couples and groups, we encourage you to be a little active, as easy paced walks, boats, open vehicles, even canoes all give you a different perspective. The accommodation in lodges or huge luxury tents is always very comfortable, en suite of course. The food is miraculously good and you can expect most of the fellow guests to be other couples, people you’ll have something in common with. If you’re anxious to stay away from other people’s children, let us know! We do arrange some fabulous family safaris though of course these are usually during school holiday months (Easter, August and Christmas) so you could avoid those times. Many camps and lodges have a minimum age limit and families usually have their own private safari vehicles. Please take your time to explore our website then do contact us – we’d love to hear from you.
Your honeymoon is the most important holiday you’ll ever take, so it has to be perfectly planned. A luxury Africa safari has all the ingredients for the perfect honeymoon safari where you can enjoy adventures together in beautiful romantic places.
Botswana offers you the opportunity to see a very wide variety of animals in contrasting desert, delta and savannah landscapes in a high degree of privacy. The Botswana Government has consistently encouraged a style of safari whereby small numbers of tourists can enjoy exclusive access to enormous private wildlife reserves.
For a big birthday, an anniversary, or any event that deserves a celebration nothing could be better than a luxurious safari adventure, perhaps combined with a few days on some idyllic beach. The fact is, a safari is a truly memorable holiday with a unique mixture of shared adventure, natural beauty, excitement and comfort.
Kenya is Africa’s “original” safari country, and the open rolling plains of the Masai Mara, the dry hills of Samburu and snow-capped Kilimanjaro shimmering in the distance are sights that fill your mind when you dream of Africa.
Zambia is one of the less well known safari destinations and is perhaps a good choice as your second or third trip to Africa. Zambia has some of Africa’s best bushcamps – relatively simple small lodges or camps in truly remote locations – where you might begin the day with a three or four hour fascinating walk through the bush with an armed scout and guide.
While most people have heard of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, these are only two of a dozen spectacular wildlife areas in Tanzania. For a couple, or a group of friends Tanzania offers the opportunity to see truly majestic scenery, vast numbers of animals and explore some of the most remote safari regions on the continent.
The perfect country to combine a luxurious safari with touring the gloriously beautiful Cape. South Africa’s carefully managed private reserves almost guarantee sightings of the Big Five. The effortless nature of the safaris and air-conditioned opulence of the best lodges makes this a good choice if you want to ‘see it all’ in a few days before heading to Cape Town, the Winelands and Garden Route.
Namibia is a land of dramatic desert landscapes - of immense curving dunes, fog-bound coastlines, shimmering saltpans, canyons and mountains. A land of intense colours, crystal clear air and sometimes utter silence. It’s a land of endless fascination as you discover elephants, birds, insects and vegetation adapting to thrive in these utterly arid places.
Every day brought new adventures and we learnt so much about every aspect of Kenya, its people and the wildlife. Within 24 hours of leaving home we were sitting overlooking Samburu, eating a bush picnic lunch while watching elephants and getting to know our two Samburu guides. How amazing is that?!
Africa Exclusive provided me and my family with an unforgettable, life changing adventure. It was an ethical and authentic African experience and the treatment and service was first class. We felt like participants rather than merely tourists. Amazing.
You have given us so much more than we ever had the right to expect. This was the perfect holiday in every sense – exciting, comfortable, educational, brilliant fun, a wonderful itinerary and every last detail organised and delivered to perfection. I do hope you all have the time and the opportunity to enjoy the sort of life enriching experience you have just given to us.
As regular visitors to Africa with Africa Exclusive, we’ve been constantly drawn back to the varied animal and bird watching, the landscapes and the ways of life.
We got back home yesterday after the most fantastic trip to Botswana that one could imagine. Everything worked well and the various organisations looking after us were extremely efficient so that our travel and accommodation arrangements could not have been better organised – and the people of Botswana are lovely. For us it really was the holiday of a lifetime. Worth every penny.
We have now returned home from our African adventure and would like to send a big THANK YOU to Africa Exclusive. We had the most amazing holiday, far beyond our wildest dreams and will remember it as a trip of a lifetime.

There is a world of difference between one of our tailormade safaris and most package holidays printed in a brochure. Package holidays are usually designed to be as cheap as possible and of course involve large numbers of people doing the same thing. Our safaris use small, more exclusive and remote camps usually with guests flying in, and often virtually everything is included in the price. The experience is completely different.
Many of these small lodges and camps have broadly similar prices, and it is possible to arrange a superb two week safari for between £4,000 to £7,000 per person ($7,000 – $11,000) season dependant, all inclusive. Realistically it is difficult to reduce that figure, and by including Botswana in peak season, chartering a private plane, disappearing to some magical desert island, or flying at the front of the plane it’s easy to substantially increase that figure!
