When you picture a safari, what comes to mind? A whirlwind adventure full of romance and intrigue? A photo safari teeming with life? There’s so much to see and do on the massive African continent. No matter what kind of safari experiences you can imagine, Discover Africa can make your dreams a reality.

Here’s just a sample of what we have to offer:

1. Family-Friendly Safaris

For an unforgettable family experience, you can’t beat a family-friendly safari. This type of adventure keeps kids’ attention spans and abilities at the forefront, so you won’t hear any complaints of boredom or exhaustion. A family safari is an incredible way to teach children about nature and the value of conservation.

2. Wildebeest Migration Adventure

When you join us for a migration adventure, you will see how the herbivores bring new life to the savanna. Watch the tension unfold as the mighty herd crosses the Mara River, plunging into the churning waters and deftly dodging snapping crocodiles. The sound of thundering hooves as thousands of wildebeest storm across the open plains is something nobody ever forgets.

3. Beach Holiday Getaways

Not all African adventures take place in one of the many national parks on the continent. Africa also has phenomenal beaches. Whether you want an exciting fishing excursion or just to relax on warm golden sand and play in azure water, there’s an African beach getaway just for you.

4. Romantic Honeymoon Safaris

Imagine waking up with your new spouse to the sunrise over the Serengeti, the air rich with birdsong. Romantic honeymoon safaris are an incredible bonding experience, with opportunities for the two of you to truly escape from the rest of the world.

5. Birding and Photography Tours

On our birding safaris and photography tours, our expert guides understand all of the technical aspects of taking a good wildlife photo. And our photography camps have all of the gear you need to keep your cameras ready to roll!

6. Walking and Horseback Safaris

For more intimate wildlife encounters and views you just can’t get from a vehicle, walking safaris and horseback safaris offer a unique perspective. This is especially true for horseback safaris, as the horses mask your scent, making the wildlife feel more at ease!

7. Gorilla Trekking Expeditions

Encounter the gentle giants of the forest on eco-friendly gorilla trekking expeditions. One of our closest relatives, these beautiful apes are critically endangered, and gorilla trekking actually helps fund their conservation.

8. Big Five Wildlife Encounters

Lions and leopards and buffalo, oh my! Big Five Wildlife Encounters have experienced guides who will make sure that you don’t leave without seeing lions, leopards, buffalo, rhinos, and elephants– and so many more.

9. Mobile Camping Adventures

For a truly wild outdoor experience, our mobile camping adventures will take you on a journey through the bush that’s simultaneously luxurious and rugged. You’ll sleep under the stars in glamorous tents, lulled to sleep by the gentle noises of the veldt and the distant calls of nocturnal animals. It’s an experience unlike any other.

The only limit to the adventures you can have on an African safari is your own imagination. What are your safari dreams? Contact us today to set up your ideal safari, and read what hundreds of thrilled adventurers just like you have to say about our experiences.
