Types of Trips to Africa

Africa is a dream destination for travellers of all types and styles. You’ll find a multitude of options when it comes to luxury tours and safaris. It’s good to know the difference between the three main types of vacation packages when you’re planning a holiday. This will help to ensure that you not only compare apples with apples when you weigh up quotes, but also choose the type of trip that’s right for you:

Tailor-made Holidays

Planned in conjunction with your Africa Safari Expert, tailor-made trips take into account your budget, preferred destinations and activities. There’s also a consideration about who you’re travelling with – be it your partner, a group of friends or just on your own. Needless to say, this is the best way of getting exactly what you want from your trip.

Packaged Vacations

These are holidays that have been pre-packaged by our experts. Flights, accommodation, local tours and transfers are all put together into tried-and-tested itineraries, making them great ‘off-the-shelf’ options – affordable safari packages, yet often very luxurious.

Scheduled Tours

These are itineraries for popular destinations run by our well-established safari partners and operate with set departure dates. Our Scheduled & Overland Tours will have you travelling with a group of like-minded safari-goers and a guide. It’s usually the most affordable way to experience Africa’s highlights and the perfect option for solo travellers.
