The Expert Africa website is full of suggestions for great itineraries for your next African adventure. There are currently nearly 150 of them, all fully-costed – from classic safari circuits to beach holidays, and combinations of everything in between. But of course everything is always tailored to suit your specific interests and needs.

To help inspire you, here are the most popular itineraries from our website over the last three months:

Caracal Self-Drive Safari – Namibia

This quintessential self-drive adventure packs in Namibia’s most iconic experiences.

Climb the world’s tallest dunes at dawn, track desert-adapted elephants, and watch wildlife at a floodlit waterhole in Etosha – one of Africa’s best locations for endangered black rhinos.

You’ll drive at your own pace through breathtaking landscapes with incredible biodiversity on this great-value 14-night Namibian safari.

For an inspiring and lyrical tale of self-driving around Namibia with a family, two top UK journalists (from the Times and the Financial Times) recently travelled with us and wrote a super piece for The Sunday Times newspaper – see our Press Page.

Gorillas & Maasai Mara Safari – Rwanda & Tanzania

Trek through lush forests to a humbling encounter sitting amongst a troop of mountain gorillas, observing these gentle giants feed, play, and socialise.

Then fly to a brilliant luxury tented camp in Kenya’s Maasai Mara, where you can witness the dramatic river crossings of the wildebeest migration, plus some amazing predator interactions with the herds.

Don’t miss this incredible dual safari experience!

Wild Dog Safari – Botswana

This safari is a tour-de-force of Botswana’s untamed wilderness. Hold onto your cameras for a fast-paced, thrilling adventure to track wild dog packs, learning from expert guides and trackers.

Then glide along the Okavango Delta’s winding waterways, spotting elephants and perhaps sitatunga along papyrus-fringed channels, or driving to observe the hunting tactics of lion prides. End your evenings at stylish camps in game-rich areas, waking to amazing wildlife right outside your room.

This is a long and immersive safari celebrating Botswana’s incredible biodiversity.

Jackal Fly-in Safari – Tanzania

This fly-in safari heads deep into two of Tanzania’s wildest parks.

Cruise the waterways of Nyerere, teeming with hippos and crocodiles, then head out on a walking safari through its palm-studded landscape. Experience the thrill of gliding over Ruaha’s rolling plains by hot air balloon, before tracking leopards as they hunt at dusk.

Guided by expert naturalists and accommodated in some of our top safari camps, this safari offers an unparalleled wilderness adventure full of great activities.
