Close your eyes and imagine the perfect combination of mountains, forests and open spaces, clear skies and sunny weather, an abundance of wildlife roaming the grassland around you: the African sun setting in the distance and friends and families sharing stories around crackling campfires. This is a typical safari in Africa-something all nature lovers should experience at least once in their lifetime. Africa abounds with incredible sights, from soaring sand dunes to savannas teeming with wildlife you can’t come Africa and not head into the bush. Africa has a large, long-established safari industry and as a result the choice of where to stay can feel overwhelming. The good news is that there are a lot of very good options. From some of the finest luxury lodges on the continent to simple bush camps and walking safaris with more of a connection to the environment.
The possibilities are endless on a classic safari tour in Africa. We feature explorations of all the most popular African countries, including South Africa, Botswana, Eswatini, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Kenya and Tanzania. The Serengeti plays host to more than a million wildebeest, 200,000 zebra, and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle during the annual migration. The culture and cuisine of Cape Town & Johannesburg are complemented by the intense wildlife of Kruger National Park. The Chobe River takes you on a winding river where hippos, elephants, crocodiles, and lions abound. Have the chance to interact with local indigenous communities, like the Maasai and other groups.
What will you do on Safari?
Due to the diverse areas in which Buja Tours operates, the experiences offered vary numerously from camp to camp. A game drive in the Kalahari is very different to a drive through the Busanga Plains or across the Namib Desert. Wildlife can also be enjoyed on foot, by moroko, by boat, by air or even from the comfort of your lodge.
