East and Southern Africa is synonymous with natural beauty. The tropical rainforests, desert dunes, wildlife-filled savannahs, rugged mountains and picture-postcard white sandy beaches – we have it all. Imagine being able to see mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, the big five, the little five, all manner of antelope, the predators and whales in one safari. This is what East and Southern Africa offers and we haven’t even mentioned the thousands of different species of birdlife yet!
There are many ways to see the incredible diversity of wildlife and we strive to give you the most unique perspective. Imagine galloping alongside a heard of giraffes on horseback, skimming along the surface of the Okavango Delta in a mokoro, gliding silently above the unimaginable wildebeest migration in a hot air balloon or coming eye to eye with a great white shark beneath the waves. It is a photographer’s paradise, an adventurer’s dream, the explorer’s ultimate destination.
Often the stunning landscapes and amazing wildlife is what draws travellers here but it is always the people that brings them back, time and time again. Nowhere else on earth can match the depth and breadth of culture we have. Hundreds of different tribes each with a unique language, a compelling history, distinctive customs and an innate relationship with the land. Come on a journey with us across this magical continent and let us give you your most treasured memories.
“I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up and was not happy” Ernest Hemmingway
Luxury African Safari
Join an A&K African safari and experience a world where nature reigns supreme. A&K pioneered the modern African safari in 1962, creating a signature blend of luxury, authenticity and adventure. Today, our 11 local African offices employ the continent’s finest tour guides and bring you into the heart of the wildlife action with A&K’s unique mobile tented camps, an elegant and eco-friendly successor of the classic African safaris of Roosevelt and Hemingway.
On an East African safari, witness the Great Migration — as hundreds of thousands of grazing animals and predators cross the plains of Kenya and Tanzania — or track mountain gorillas in their natural jungle habitat in Uganda. Venture to Southern Africa for water safaris by dugout canoe through Botswana’s Okavango Delta, and for a visit to mighty Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.
A&K was born in Kenya, and as a pioneer in luxury safari tours, we can show you an Africa that’s perfect for you. Wherever you go, count on an experience in which every day is an inspiring adventure.
