Choosing which iconic African safari destinations to include on your luxury African safari itinerary can be tricky: after all, this is a continent that offers such an incredible diversity of landscapes, wildlife and cultures. Let us introduce you to our carefully curated destinations, and help you get there.

People have known of the ‘golden joys’ of Africa for centuries, but modern luxury African safaris allow you to experience iconic African safari destinations at their very best. A simple list of the best African safari destinations is enough to give anyone wanderlust, but we’ll provide you with much more than that.

Our insider knowledge can help you turn your armchair wanderings into unforgettable journeys. Perhaps you have a yearning to see the Great Wildebeest Migration cross the rolling plains of Tanzania or Kenya, or would you prefer to take in the sweeping desert vistas of Namibia?

We can find you the perfect family villa if you want to find peace and quiet on the coast of Mozambique or on an Indian Ocean island, or help you reach the heart of the Congo rainforest. Africa offers a multitude of safari experiences, from observing primates at close quarters to tracking rhino or elephant on a guided walking safari in Zimbabwe or South Africa.

Then of course there’s the classic safari game drive, which can be enjoyed in Botswana, Zambia, Uganda or pretty much anywhere in Africa – you name it, we’ll make it happen.
