The Africa team at Steppes Travel are considered to be the most experienced Africa experts in the travel industry. With more years of hands on African experience than they care to remember, they have run and managed safari lodges in East Africa, qualified as safari guides in Southern Africa, pioneered new expeditions in Central and West Africa and worked on conservation projects throughout the continent.

Truly passionate about the areas they know and love, the team are equally happy discussing luxury lodges and family safaris in Kenya’s Masai Mara and Tanzania’s Serengeti as they are helping plan voyages through the land of the Black Pharaohs in northern Sudan or adventurous expeditions to the Congo, and having personally visited our selection of accommodation in the countries we offer, first-hand knowledge is guaranteed.

The right safari for you

Africa for many conjures up thoughts of its magnificent wildlife and safaris provide a way to see this. Every country we feature offers a different kind of safari to the next and we are here to help unravel which is best for you.  

Classic bush camps in Zambia allow for world famous walking safaris, South Africa offers the perfect first safari with world class game viewing and malari-free reserves which are great for families. Glide by mokoro past pods of hippos in the sparkling waters of the Okavango Delta in Botswana, take time to visit some of Zimbabwe’s spectacular and welcoming parks before the crowds return.

The classic open savannahs of Kenya and Tanzania offer the awe inspiring big game viewing including the annual wildebeest migration. See the desert-adapted wildlife of Namibia or go in search of mountain gorillas and chimpanzees in the lush forested slopes of Rwanda and Uganda. Take a trip to Madagascar with its unique and colourful wildlife, explore off the beaten track in the Congo or experience the rich cultural heritage in Ethiopia – in Africa, the choice is endless.
