Africa’s incredible diversity of landscapes and wildlife can be a little bewildering, but fear not. Art of Safari has carefully curated a collection of the very best all-inclusive luxury African safari trips. Whichever you choose, you’ll enjoy the finest accommodation and unforgettable experiences. Or let us create your own bespoke safari – tailor-made just for you.
Luxury Kenya safari trips introduce you to the stages on which incredible wildlife dramas play out. The renowned Masai Mara reverberates to the sound of the Great Wildebeest Migration, while snow-capped peaks preside over both hot and arid northern Kenya, and the lusher plains of Amboseli. Time spent in Nairobi can be rewarding, as can slowing things down in the Chyulu Hills or on Kenya’s south coast.
Tanzania sits cheek-to-cheek with Kenya on the map, and can go head-to-head when it comes to planning itineraries. Luxury Tanzania safari trips let you range from the Serengeti and ‘lost world’ of the Ngorongoro Crater in northern Tanzania to the remote wilderness areas of southern Tanzania. Tracing fascinating Swahili history along the coasts of Zanzibar and Pemba rounds out these trips in style.
Luxury South Africa safari trips offer the very best of both human and natural history. No city has a finer location than Cape Town, and indeed the beauty extends to the vineyards and seaviews of the Western Cape and Garden Route. The turtle-studded beaches of Maputaland are not far from the Big Five safari experiences on offer in Greater Kruger National Park, and heading further inland reveals the striking scenery of more remote regions like the Kalahari, Madikwe and Waterberg.
Luxury Botswana safari trips are a study in contrasts, from the watery wonderland of the Okavango Delta to the game-rich Savute and Chobe regions, where life depends on spasmodic ribbons of water. Experience an irresistible sense of space on the Chobe Floodplains, or rediscover a sense of perspective on the glittering Makgadikgadi Pans.
Luxury Namibia safari trips – to, perhaps, Africa’s most visually striking country – can involve climbing the world’s highest sand dunes at Sossusvlei, and seeing game shimmer in the Etosha heat haze. In Damaraland and the Skeleton Coast, learn to track desert rhino and pay your respects to lonely shipwrecks.
Luxury Zimbabwe safari trips show you the country behind the headlines. Feel the thundering smoke of Victoria Falls, then get acquainted with the Zambezi in a gentler mood on a Mana Pools canoe safari. Zimbabwe’s safari gem, Hwange, remains a bastion of big-game viewing.
For a true up-close-and-personal encounter with Victoria Falls, you need to spend time on luxury Zambia safari trips. Zambia bills itself as ‘the real Africa’, and it’s hard to disagree. Soar over Kafue’s Busanga Plains in a balloon, or see the ‘other’ Great Wildebeest Migration at Liuwa Plains. Alternatively, enjoy the thrill of a catching a tiger of the aquatic variety in the Lower Zambezi, or pace yourself on an extended walking-and-camping safari in South Luangwa.
Luxury Mozambique beach holidays allow you to explore the country’s seemingly endless coastline, beginning where the sands of Maputaland’s beaches drift across the border, and continuing north to find the tropical islands of the Bazaruto and Quirimbas archipelagos, where marine wildlife exists side-by-side with the remnants of a rich history.
Luxury Uganda safari trips will reveal the secrets of brooding peaks and mist-shrouded trees – a suitably atmospheric environment in which to encounter our near relatives. The fecundity of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest could not be more different to the arid landscape of the Kidepo Valley, while at Murchison Falls you can witness water under the kind of pressure you simply won’t experience on one of our African itineraries.
Luxury Republic of Congo safari trips will also give you the opportunity to encounter primates: the famous western lowland gorilla. Home to these fascinating creatures, Odzala-Kokoua National Park is the focal point of safaris in the Congo, but gorilla trekking isn’t all you can do. There are lush rainforests to walk through, watery bias to wade in and stretches of savannah to explore on game drives.
Whether you select one of our curated luxury African safari trips, or let us create a customised one that matches your bucket list, Africa’s golden joys will not disappoint.
