Safari holidays

People often talk about ‘The Big Five’, but there are far more than five reasons to go on safari. Our local partners know the right footprints to follow, so as well as supporting local businesses, you’ve got the best chance of seeing the world’s most incredible animals in their natural habitats.

Top tip from our local partners in South Africa

"The dry season can be the best time to see animals on safari because the animals visit only one or two watering holes, making them easier to find."
