About safaris

Safaris means journeys. Safari is a combination of safar, meaning a journey in Arabic, and kusafiri, meaning to travel in Swahili. Today safaris are synonymous with travelers enjoying amazing journeys throughout Africa.

Planning your safari

Travel Africa arranges safaris to suit all needs. This includes family safaris, self-drive safaris, guided safaris, honeymoon safaris and walking safaris to meet all budgets.

These safaris range from luxury safaris in private game reserves with all your needs catered, to self-drive safaris in off-the-beaten track locations where you sleep in roof top tents without any fences.

As there are a huge variety of African safaris for the traveller to choose from, deciding which one is for you can be a minefield. Here are some considerations to take into account.
