  • Why we love Africa

    • See southern Africa's wildlife up close, with a morning paddle in Mana Pools, game drives through Chobe National Park and the magnificence of Kruger, where you can choose to relax in a splendid tented camp or perch overnight in a treehouse over a much-frequented waterhole.
    • La Colombe in Cape Town, has delicious dishes matched with local wines. It's in the suburb of Constantia, which is a beautiful wine-growing region in the foothills of Table Mountain
    • Ethiopia is considered the cradle of mankind, and home to many of the oldest sites of human existence known to us. It is also home to many of the most significant sites and artefacts of the world’s major religions
    • West Africa is different to its very core. For example, the town of Ouidah in Benin is the spiritual capital of voodoo in Africa. Voodoo is an official religion in Benin, and it's thought that up to 40 per cent of the local population adhere to it in some manner or form
    • In Rwanda's Virunga Mountains, you can spend time in the company of ten mountain gorilla families. It's not always easy work but the experience is profound. For many of our travellers, time spent with these majestic animals is deeply emotional
    • Matopo National Park, in Zimbabwe, is well off the beaten track, but it's such a gem. Known for its beautiful granite 'kopjes' (rock formations), and as the resting place of Cecil Rhodes

    Safety information

    Your safety is our top priority. It’s one of the main things we consider when designing and operating our trips. Here’s some of the ways we help to keep you safe, and a few of the things you can do to make your trip memorable for all the right reasons.

    Before you travel:

    We monitor travel alerts provided by the Australian, UK, USA and Canadian governments on a daily basis. Before a tour goes on sale we assess any risks and decide how to reduce and manage these. If we determine that an entire trip, part of a trip or an activity is too risky we won’t do it. It’s as simple as that. If we can’t address the issues and improve conditions we might modify an itinerary, change the accommodation or even decide not to travel to a certain location. Our overseas staff and local leaders are trained to address any health and safety concerns during trips. Before you travel, we’ll give you an emergency phone number. You’ll also get comprehensive pre-departure information, with information about vaccinations and other relevant health issues. We’ll also tell you if there’s any special clothing or equipment you need to bring.

    During your trip:

    You local leader is trained in first aid and always carries a first aid kit. Being a local means that if something does go wrong they know fastest and most effective way to get help. We’ll also give you a 24-hour emergency number in addition to the emergency destination telephone number.

    What you can do:

    Read through all the information we send you. If you’ve got any questions we’re always available to help. Keep an eye out for travel alerts by consulting your local Foreign Office. We also monitor these daily so that we can modify tours if necessary. Get some medical travel advice about the countries you are visiting, particularly about vaccinations and the type of personal first aid kit you should carry. Make sure you tell us any medical conditions, special needs or dietary requirements you might have. Get your vaccinations and take relevant medication well before travelling so they have time to take effect.

    An amateur’s guide to preparing for a Mount Kilimanjaro climb

    By Jacqueline Donaldson

    On booking a trip to climb Mt Kilimanjaro last year my excitement quickly turned to panic – what had I done? Fifteen years earlier I had only just made it over the Inca Trail’s Dead Woman’s Pass, and now I was (ahem) older and heading 1,700 metres higher with the added...

    By Bradley John-Davis, GM Africa for Peregrine Adventures

    As long as you are healthy and are able to climb over the side of a 4-tiered Land Rover (and I mean over the side, no doors) then go for it. To sit in front of a herd of elephants, one of them only 2 days old and have them walk around you or drive up and park real close to 3 lions, 2 sleeping off their dinner while the third is still dining of Buffalo, have 3 White Rhino walk around you and take no notice, watch the graceful giraffes both old and young or they will just stand there and watch you as long as you are very quite and still, and the piece de resistance a Leopard resting in the grass with her Gazelle kill hanging up in a tree. Regardless of how many nature films you have watched on TV it will not prepare you for these magnificent aminals when you see them in the wild.

    Our guide Memory would sit for hours around the campfire at night explaining life in a village, the different languages spoken (he speaks 9 as well as english), the different tribes, the music of Africa and of course the amimals. If ever Africa needs an ambassador they need look no further then Memory with his knowledge, wonderful sense of humour and beautiful warm smile.
