REDISCOVER THE NATURAL WORLD ON A REMARKABLE WILDLIFE SAFARI

Big Five game safaris, relaxing lodge evenings, open-air cruising and nature at its most primal.

Journey. Fundamentally, that’s what the word ‘safari’ means in Swahili. You can’t complete your journey without taking the once-in-a-lifetime chance to witness one of the Big Five in the wild.

The five what? Well, just as the world has its Seven Wonders, Africa has its five glorious beasts: lions, rhinos, elephants, leopards, and buffalo. Consider this your safari holiday check-list.

Kruger National Park, Africa’s oldest wildlife conservation area, is striking with its untouched grasslands and opportunities to see one of the five up close. As such, this South African destination is fantastic for those travelling on their first safari holiday. Spot prowling leopards against a picturesque backdrop of the lofty Lebombo Mountains, then spend a relaxing evening in a safari lodge with a traditional Boma dinner.

If you’ve acquired a taste for the lodge life, head over to Kenya’s renowned accommodation, Treetops. Constructed around an ancient tree, the lodge offers boundless opportunities to explore East Africa’s vast natural beauty.

While these African wilderness holidays offer the quintessential safari experience, you might like to join us on another continent.

From an open-air vehicle, cruise through northern India’s Ranthambore National Park. Allow your experienced naturalist guide to point out animals including striped hyenas, sloth bears, and even tigers. Take in a panoramic view of the biodiversity haven below from the ancient Ranthambhore Fort, a structure that crests a 600-metre-high hill.

Our safari tours combine exquisite scenery, up-close encounters and a glimpse of nature at its most raw. Consider it the ultimate antidote to the artificialities of modern life.
