Luxury Holidays in Africa

Our luxury tailor-made holidays to Africa

Africa is a continent of sublime contrast. The shimmering waterways of Botswana’s Okavango Delta – and the magnificent species that inhabit them – seem worlds away from the intricate chambers of Egypt’s Valley of the Kings or the peaceful quietude of Zanzibar’s blue-green seascapes. Each place in possession of its own unique contours and contexts, there’s truly something here for every traveller. From the thrill of a close-up wildlife encounter to the peaceful desolation of the desert. This is the place where it all began; the continent to which the deepest roots of humankind can be traced.

Our tailor-made luxury African holidays are different; crafted with a desire to delve deeper into the world’s second-largest continent. Eco-cabins on the wild Skeleton Coast; world-class dining on Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront; Berber trails up into the High Atlas Mountains; a seat-of-your-pants safari across Kenya’s glorious plains. And that’s only the beginning.

Here is a continent that holds hundreds – if not thousands – of life-altering journeys. And our Africa Travel Experts are here to create the perfect one to suit you. Whether you want to track endangered gorillas in the jungles of the Congo or tuck into a boma-style dinner under the stars in Tanzania. Or both.

Moroccan architecture in North Africa

North Africa

Between bustling old medinas in Morocco and the ancient pyramids in Egypt, North Africa enchants at every turn. We’ll take you on camel treks with the nomadic Beaudoin through the Sahara, hot air balloon rides high over the Atlas Mountains, arrange a slow-cooked lamb tagine dinner with the locals, and bag you exclusive private access to the iconic Sphinx. These are African vacations with a twist.

Flamingos and their reflections in Sub Saharan Africa

Sub Saharan Africa

Our safaris in Sub-Saharan Africa reveal a different side of this enormous continent. Accompanied by one of our expert local guides, you’ll never be far from an exhilarating wildlife encounter, whether it’s from the seat of a canoe or a helicopter. Think elephants stomping by your camp at sunrise, wildebeest galloping across the Mara River, and spotting colonies of luminous pink flamingos as you blaze across the Makgadikgadi Pans by quadbike.

Our luxury African safaris can be as laid back or action-packed as you wish. It might be a sunrise 4X4 trip through the Great Rift Valley to witness a pride of lions on the prowl. It might be traversing the jagged limestone rocks of Madagascar’s Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park in search of lemurs. It might be a walk across Zambia’s unimaginably beautiful plains beside a herd of zebra. And all in between stays at our favourite luxury safari lodges.
