African Safaris

Interact with the mysteries and wonders of Africa in a luxurious, decadent and upmarket style. Giltedge Travel’s luxury African safaris are intimate experiences for discerning guests and offer you a personalised encounter with this ancient continent, its culture, magnificent scenery and awesome wildlife.

The stillness of the night punctured by a lion’s roar, a river cruise interrupted by gigantic elephants having a bath, the short-sighted rhino you will see on game drives and the opportunity to spot elusive leopards and endangered animals while staying in luxury safari accommodation in the African wilderness add up to an exclusive experience. But these are not the only bespoke experiences on offer, you can explore the continent’s rivers and oceans by yacht, cross the deserts and varied landscapes on an upmarket rail safari, fly over its mountains and ancient volcanic craters by jet or immerse yourself in cosmopolitan urban culture while staying in the best city hotel suites available.

Choose from Giltedge Travel’s luxury safari destinations across Southern Africa, the ancient dunes in Namibia, the Okavango Delta in Botswana, see animals migrating across the Serengeti Plains in Kenya and Tanzania and experience the lush offerings of South Africa. Revel in the magnificent scenery and sights on offer while relaxing into your African vacation.

Conducted in comfort and style, these safari vacations can be tailor made to suit your individual needs from stylish lodges and resorts to luxury camping in the African bush. If your soul is calling for the deep silence of the bush, punctuated by the calls of birds, the rushing of water in waterfalls and rivers or the sound of the slow drift of sands over ancient dunes, contact the Giltedge Travel team and realise your ideal African safari dream today.
