Aardvark Safaris’ African Safari Highlights

With the media currently full of travel ideas for school-leavers we started to wonder why it should be only students who take off on exotic trips around the world. If you’ve got itchy feet too, and Africa is on your to do list, then take a look at our fabulous month-long, once in a life time extravaganza which visits the most breath taking destinations in Southern and East Africa.

African Safari Highlights

You’ll stay in a selection of superb, hand-picked lodges and camps, enjoying safari highlights in the Masai Mara, Serengeti, Victoria Falls, South Luangwa, Okavango Delta and Namib Desert. There’s the opportunity to track mountain gorillas, take a walking safari, dine in Cape Town’s world-class restaurants and a whole lot more. It’s a cracker of a holiday and we can tailor the trip to suit individual preferences.
