Safaris & Tours

A safari in Africa is a very exciting and special experience! Africa is a big and diverse continent and the choices are many. Planning to get the best out of it is of utmost importance. We at Adventure to Africa breath, live and “work” the African bush and we would like to share our knowledge with you. Please see Our Story for more details.

The best way to start planning is by calling (1 703/665-1969), Skyping or emailing us. The longer ahead you plan, the more choices you will have as preferred safari destinations are small camps and book up quickly, especially during high season.

Or for a start you can browse our selections below but please be aware that this is only a very small selection available. We will tailor what Southern and East Africa has on offer to your particular interests. A tailor-made itinerary does NOT increase the price however. It just takes time from our side to find out what you are looking for and match you with the best itinerary and accommodation to provide you with overall guidance for your trip. We would also like you to be aware that our service fees are facilitated by the operators/lodges and whether you reserve and pay directly or take advantage of our services, the cost to you will generally be the same. When taking advantage of our service, you take advantage of being able to compare many different operators, lodges, countries and activities. We will also guide you on the differences of visiting a particular area in the wet or dry season, which activities you would like to take part in (walking, fishing, canoeing, hot air balloon rides, etc…), the different animals you are interested in, and many other options that entail your safari experience.

Our brides & grooms favorite honeymoons featuring discounts for brides and romantic treats are on our honeymoon page. Yet we would be pleased to check for honeymoon deals for any of the trips featured below.

Although the country has its fair share of problems, South Africans are some of the most upbeat, welcoming and humorous folk you’ll encounter anywhere, from farmers in the rural north who tell you to drive safely on those dirt roads, to Khayelitsha kids who wish you molo (‘good morning’ in Xhosa).

Pristine, wild with huge herds of game roaming unhindered by fences across the Kalahari’s plains and the waterways of the Oakavango Delta. This is what Botswana is known for. It is considered one of Africa’s top safari destinations.

Safaris in Botswana are top notch and so are the prices. But even so, there is a range of pricing depending what you are looking for.

Surrounding them are private areas that offer greater flexibility in regards to night drives and off-road driving to view game not near the track.

Mozambique beckons with its coastline and swaying palms, its traditions, its cultures, its vibe and – most of all – its opportunities for adventure. This enigmatic southeast African country is well off most travellers’ maps, but it has much to offer those who venture here: long, dune-fringed beaches, turquoise waters abounding in shoals of colourful fish, well-preserved corals, remote archipelagos in the north, pounding surf in the south and graceful dhows with billowing sails. Add to this colonial-style architecture, pulsating nightlife, an endlessly fascinating cultural mix and vast tracks of bush populated with elephants, lions and birds galore. Discovering these attractions is not always easy, but it is unfailingly rewarding. Bring along some patience and a sense of adventure, and jump in for the journey of a lifetime.

Bazaruto/Benguerra Archipelago

VILANCULOS

The coastal town of Vilanculos acts as a gateway to Mozambique’s Bazaruto Archipelago – a chain of four main islands: Bazaruto Island, Benguerra Island, Santa Isobel and Santa Carolina (formerly known as Paradise Island). A marine national park covers most of the archipelago, protecting the exquisite marine life in these turquoise seas. A beach or dive holiday in these islands combines well with a safari to southern Africa. Bazaruto/Benguerra Islands are known as the ‘Pearls of the Indian Ocean’ and are perfect island escapes in the Indian Ocean just off the coast from Vilanculos. Vilanculos can now easily be reached by direct flight from South Africa’s Kruger National Park airport.

The Quirimbas Islands lie in the Indian Ocean off northeastern Mozambique, close to Pemba, the capital of the province of Cabo Delgado. The archipelago consists of about 27 islands, including Ibo, Matemo, Medjumbe, Quirimba, Metundo, Quisiva and Rolas Island. Originally home to fishing settlements, the islands population grew around Arab trading posts and thrived under the Portuguese trading routes when it was known as the Ilhas de Sao Lazaro (Islands of St. Lazarus). Today, many of the islands are uninhabitated. These islands are known for their high-quality diving sites, including phenomenal drop-offs, some up to 400 meters. The Quirimbas National Park, spanning an area of 7 500 km², includes the 11 most southerly islands, which are partly surrounded by mangroves. The park was established in 2002.

Vamizi Lodge

Crusoe invented castaway chic, but Vamizi Island Lodge defines it with impossibly romantic timber villas strung loosely along one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Simply grand or grandly simple – this lodge isn’t about the usual five star luxury and all modern cons, it’s about the more rarified pleasures of exclusive island life. Imagine wafting through muslin and filtered sunlight, flopping straight from your room into a private ocean and enjoying elegant lunches with your toes in the sand… It’s hard to compete with the perfect desert island, so we don’t. We just take what comes on the breeze, and mold it into a more civilized form. Beneath the surface of the Vamizi Seas is an outstanding reef scape – mountains, valleys, plateau and cliffs- teeming with a bewildering amount of sea life, from whales, dolphins, turtles and reef sharks to gregorian corals and giant clams. Vamizi Island lies right by the point where the south equatorial current splits. The emergent cool and warm currents sustain unusually large amounts of microscopic plankton and krill, a major food source that supports a vast array of species – up to 46 types of coral and over 400 species of fish. Simply put, whether you want to dive, fish, swim or bob, this is the place. The miles of unpadded white sand and wild bushy interior are a sanctuary for samango monkeys, coconut crabs and the 112 bird species that have been recorded as either resident or visitors, as well as being a haven for the more land-based creatures amongst us. Like the 100 turtles that nest on Vamizi’s empty shores and are irresistibly drawn to its peace, solitude and perfect harmony year after year, intrepid travelers and rarified pleasure seekers find it’s just the place to rest their weary fins.
