The Magic of Africa
Visit Africa once and it will draw you back again and again. It is hard to sum up one thing that makes Africa so special. The extraordinary wild life, the infinitely varied landscape, the warmth of its people, the endless stretches of idyllic beach all play their part, but it goes deeper than that. There is something that enters the very soul as you come to appreciate the sounds, the smells, the colours, and the sheer vastness that is Africa.
This magic has drawn a steady stream of people to Africa. Other companies try to package Africa, but the beauty of Africa is that it cannot be packaged satisfactorily. Let us take you deep into the real Africa, to small lodges where the wildlife still roam freely in totally unspoilt habitats and where you can witness some of the most awe-inspiring sights on earth.
Whether you are a seasoned traveller to Africa or visiting for the first time, we will create a tailor-made itinerary to match your exact needs and interests. This website will give you a taste of the possibilities, but your trip will really come to life when we discuss your requirements in detail. The variety is endless, but we have a single goal – to ensure that you will have an authentic encounter with the real Africa that will stay with you for the rest of your life…
Choose from a wide range of safaris and accommodation and, with our guidance and experience to call upon, build up exactly the holiday you want.
Travelling to Africa
Getting there may not be the most exciting part of your African experience, but it is vital that every stage of your journey is carefully planned, from your international flight from the UK right down to the overland connection from a remote airstrip to a hideaway deep in the bush. Africa Select will plan your itinerary meticulously, and a network of company representatives will meet and help you at every stage of your journey. We will also arrange for the appropriate insurance cover for your trip.
We can match your tastes in the way you safari. You can enjoy drives through the bush in open Landrovers, the more adventurous can track rhino, elephants or maybe lion on foot with a highly experienced guide.
Camping, horseback safaris, hot air ballooning or even elephant-back safaris offer still more choices. Many camps and lodges based on rivers or lakes offer river trips by boat or canoe.
After all the excitement of safari, many people like to unwind … and Africa has lots to offer. Snorkelling, scuba diving and, if you are still feeling energetic, big game fishing. For many people, though, it is enough just to swim in a warm sea or take a stroll along a deserted beach. For idyllic beaches, we can take you to the likes of The Funzi Keys in Kenya, Mnemba in Tanzania, or introduce you to Loggerhead Turtles at Rocktail Bay. We can even whisk you off to the Seychelles or Mauritius in the Indian Ocean for a truly laid back beach experience.
South Africa’s famous Garden Route is another great way to unwind. You can take a hire car or we can arrange a tour through the Cape’s most stunning scenery, stopping off at some of its world famous vineyards to taste the local wines, staying in elegant old Cape homesteads.
It often comes as a surprise to visitors that Africa has some of the world’s most remarkable golf courses, and with rounds sometimes costing as little as £10 it can be a very pleasant surprise indeed!
