A new way to create your safari

African travel is opening up to the world

African safaris have always been notoriously exclusive and complicated to plan and book, and often the only people losing out are travellers themselves. We are on a mission to change that.

Welcome to Timbuktu, our brand new interactive platform that gives you the power to research, choose, and literally build your own tailor made safari in Africa, and by doing so, paying less.

We are a team of young, passionate individuals in love with Africa and her wild and beautiful places. After three years of hard work, we are finally ready to introduce a better way to create and book a safari.

tailor made safari

You enter the world of Timbuktu, browse exhilarating trips, chop and change the itinerary at will, and create a journey that suits your own needs and budget.

This technology is unprecedented and is set to change the way people engage with multi-stage travel. Timbuktu is finally doing the job of simplifying the tailor made safari process, making it as fun and easy to plan as it should be.

Perhaps you have always wanted to disappear on a small island in the Okavango Delta, or dreamed of climbing the highest peak in Africa, or relaxing on azure the Swahili Coast. Some of the greatest lodges are not necessarily the most expensive. So we’re giving you the chance to make informed decisions about the ones you want, and finally take control of your safari destiny. The truth is that Africa’s wonders are accessible to people of all budgets and desires. It’s just that the tools have not been available for people to do it themselves. Now, you have the power to make those dreams a reality—on your own terms.

We hope you enjoy using Timbuktu. Create your first trip here and let us know what you think.

Welcome to a new world of African safaris.
