Original Travel offers trips to see nature ‘red in tooth and claw’ but also at its most beautiful. The quintessential safari experience remains that in East and Southern Africa, where the planet’s biggest beasties still roam, and the Original Travel team has supremely in-depth knowledge of what to see where, and equally importantly – when and how.
Eleanor, Original Traveller
Safari remains one of the most evocative words in the travel lexicon, and luxury African safari holidays remain some of our most popular trips.
We live on a planet increasingly dominated (and, most would agree, imperiled) by the relentless expansion of one species - homo sapiens - when it's the other residents (and their habitats) that are the planet's real attraction. Those other residents don't get any bigger or better than in Africa.
See the so-called 'Big Five' and assorted others on the savannah or in the rainforest on one of our African safaris and we suspect you will come back more determined than ever to protect them and preserve their habitats.
It's not only the diversity of wildlife and landscapes that will knock your binoculars off but the variety of ways to explore them, from the traditional 4x4 route to horse riding, canoeing, flying and walking. What's more, we have cherry-picked only the very best camps and lodges to suit your requirements, whether you're travelling as a family, with friends or as a couple.
We also know that the single most important thing about an African safari holiday is having a quality guide. Not only for safety purposes, but because the knowledge and wisdom they impart is second to none. Not only will you see incredible things, you will learn a huge amount about the game, the people and the unique ecology of Africa's safari landscapes. Lucky for you, we know the very best in the business across all the African destinations we cover.
