Off the Beaten Track

- 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 - there are ways to get 'off the beaten track' !

We don't have all our lodges and safari combinations listed here so it's always best to drop us a line so we can discuss ideas together based on your interests.

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 lesser-known areas in well-known destinations - for example in Kenya, the wonderful Chyulu Hills or Matthews Range.

We adore Tanzania's vast, wild southern parks (Nyerere and Ruaha) which receive far fewer visitors then the Northern Circuit - with the western areas of Mahale and Katavi seeing even less!

Zambia's Kafue National Park, or Lower Zambezi; Zimbabwe's Mana Pools and Botswana's Selinda Spillway and mysterious Savute region - all these offer wonderful wildlife without the crowds of more mainstream destinations.

Even in popular places we can help to get you away from the main traffic by recommending camps in private conservancies, or more unusual locations, for instance, Island Bush Camp in South Luangwa - brilliant for walking and far from any other camps.

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 an absolute dream.
