Luxury African Safari Holidays

Nothing compares to the experience of going on an African safari; the excitement of spotting leopards weaving in and out of the tall grass or the joy of observing elephants cooling themselves at the watering hole. Whether your dream safari includes going birding along the Zambezi or tracking rhinos in Zimbabwe, we’ll help create your perfect luxury African safari.

Africa Safari Holidays

At Scott Dunn, we have connections with some of the best safari guides and rangers across Africa, allowing us to craft a bespoke holiday, tailored to your interests. If you want to take the family on a game drive in the Maasai Mara and get up close and personal with the ‘big five’, we’ll make it happen. Or perhaps you and your partner would like to experience a walking safari in Botswana and learn to read the tracks of a lion on the hunt while interpreting the sounds of the savannah. Whatever it is, we can create a truly unforgettable experience that’s unique to you.
