- unfrequented, out of the way places.
You've safaried in the Serengeti, or seen the migration in the Mara and now you're looking for a new adventure - we think our off the beaten track safaris are perfect for second or third time safari goers, or those looking for a bit of an adventure. You'll hopefully find some inspiration here, but if you don't see what you're looking for, please give us a ring to discuss - we don't have all our lodges and safari combinations listed here.
Off the beaten track safaris visit safari parks and reserves which are generally off the main tourist routes. The advantages of this - you will see a lot less people, the disadvantages - these areas can take longer to get to, or be more expensive to access.
Some of our favourite off the beaten track journeys explore remote areas's in Kenya such as the Laikipia plateau, Samburu & Sera and the wonderful Chyulu Hills. We adore Tanzania's vast, wild southern parks, Zambia's Kafue National Park, Zimbabwe's Mana Pools and Botswana's Selinda Spillway and mysterious Savute region - all these offer wonderful wildlife without the crowds.
For lovers of deserted beaches and superb marine life, we favour the islands of Pemba and Mafia off Tanzania, while the wild remote islands of Mozambique and the Seychelles are a dream.
