SafariBookings.com hosts a selection of typical safaris that we run. You enquired about a safari and you’ve been referred to our Zambezi “home”. This is it.

Please read on…some important points

  • Our safaris are custom. So any “tours” that you’ve seen online are only typical of what we do. Suggestions that follow depend on your interests, time of year that you travel, game conditions in our areas and best available options within budget.
  • We understand our customers. Budget constraints. Why it’s important to really understand client interests and expectations. Also why experiences come first (often before luxury). Then why people make the real difference on safari. Also why it’s important to go beyond the obvious.
  • We’re very well connected with what’s happening on the ground in East, southern and Central Africa. It’s been our business to be so since 1995. Half of the Zambezi safari team is based in Africa.
  • Talk to us. A quick chat on the phone could set everybody on the correct path from the start. If our African time zones don’t match yours then we’ll deal with you from our UK offices. If you’d prefer to discuss holiday plans after hours or on weekends then let’s schedule that.
  • Decide after research. Destinations and seasons matter. Getting timing right and deciding on where to spend most time and money could make or break your trip.

  • We’ll probably have a quick chat on the phone. More often than not this sets everybody on the correct path from the start. We’re happy with email and all of the main instant messaging services.
  • One of our safari experts will be in direct touch. First contact will come from our UK head office. We’ll usually follow up from one of our African offices.

Top tips for planning your next safari

  • Get your timing right. Depending on destination we have high and low seasons. More importantly we also have a few secret seasons in Africa.
  • Go to the right places. “Most popular” is more often than not the completely wrong place to be on safari. There are some tricks to getting location right.
  • Go beyond the obvious. Whether you’re a “first timer” or an “old Africa hand” you’d do well to take advantage of some safari planning tips and then chat to somebody with very current knowledge.
  • Experiences count. Don’t let the need for luxury get in the way of the opportunities for great experiences! Get some honest African dirt between your toes.
  • People make the difference on safari! It’s very easy to find plush soft furnishings to fill a luxury lodge - top safari teams are like hen’s teeth.
