What do we most want out of our holidays or adventures that we take? Experience, of course, but an unforgettable one that leaves a meaningful imprint in our memories. If you are in the midst of thinking where to go for your upcoming vacation – something that is a bit more ‘out there’, why not consider a tailor-made Safari?
We believe that for excursions such as a safari, it takes consultants who are the heart and soul of what they do, knowing how to offer the best of untouched Africa through a tailored approach, and this is exactly Aardvark Safaris forte.
For over 20 decades, the company has been curating tailor-made safaris for its clients, many of who are repeat businesses or word of mouth. Their teams are made up of dedicated consultants who know Africa like the back of their hand – from wildlife locations, the best kept safari secrets to the unspoiled tracks of Africa – they’ve got the inside scoop. Beyond that, the team also ventures every few months to visit new properties and pay visits to old ones, they also select small, owner run camps and lodges so you can experience the bush away from the crowds. Your trip can be made (or broken) by your guide so we use camps that employ the most experienced, personable guides, with unrivalled local knowledge.
Whether you are travelling solo and want to experience Africa in solitude, it can be done with Aardvark’s Self Drive option. One is in total control and freedom to explore three places recommended by Aardvark – South Africa for its easy to drive through roads, Namibia, where you can drive along the desert landscapes in a four-wheel drive, or Botswana, where you can navigate and find local camp grounds should you prefer that over luxury lodges. To turn up the safari notch, Primate Safari’s is one to discover – one can expect to be immersed in an unforgettable experience as they have a face-to-face encounter with a mountain gorilla as well as a host of other lesser primates. Or want to go a bit national geographic? Wildebeest Migration let’s you witness – depending on seasonal conditions – this magnificent journey made in the Serengeti ecosystem by some 2 million herds. Fascinating.
For travellers who want to experience the Safari in style and comfort, Luxury Safari takes its selection of hand picked private properties and camps right to you, with staff and Michelin-starred chefs to complement. Customers will take to the sky in a private bi-plane; pass through the savannah in a classic vehicle and be shown Africa (that few would get to experience) with its renowned conservationists and best guides in the business.
Pricing for the safaris would depend on the itinerary chosen by the individual and can range anywhere from £3,500 per person to £20,000 per person, which will include club class flights, accommodation, meals and activities.
These tempting albeit one-of-a-kind safari experiences are sure to leave any of its clients in awe of what can be tailored to the individual or group in such a way that not even a tourist experience could compare.
