If you want to go to where the wild things are, Africa is a fantastically diverse destination. From hot-air ballooning over the Masai Mara to swimming with dolphin in Zanzibar or sipping your way across the Cape Winelands, Art of Safari has curated the best African safari experiences the continent offers.
Our team of seasoned safari professionals have travelled the length and breadth of Africa to bring you the very best African safari experiences. We’re talking unforgettable moments of breathtaking beauty and drama played out against iconic land- and seascapes.
Africa’s best safari experiences offer moments of calm and chaos: the serenity of sipping on a sundowner, watching elephant strolling down to a waterhole to drink, or the clarity of soaring over the Serengeti in a hot-air balloon versus the frenetic, heart-stopping energy that infects you as you witness migrating wildebeest launching themselves into croc-infested waters.
Africa moves to her own rhythms, and staying at luxury African safari lodges where you’re in control of the pace can be very rewarding. The rest of the time, simply let the wildlife take centre stage – nowhere else in the world can you encounter iconic species at such close quarters, whether meerkats creeping out into the sunlight, gorilla foraging in the jungle or a solitary big cats slinking into the bush.
It’s a near-universal truth that people come to Africa for the animals and return for the people – respectful cultural encounters with, for example, Kenya’s Maasai or the Himba of Namibia add greatly to Africa’s best safari experiences.
