Trip of a Lifetime

Lisa Ablett 1 week ago Read more

This was our second trip with Timbuktu and we came back with very high expectations after our first experience! Once again, everything was handled expertly from the smallest details to the most critical ones. Katie Fahrland was especially great (again) throughout planning our trip and her responsiveness to our questions/requests was exceptional.

Great value

Bypass traditional agents by designing your own trip, saving you time and money.

Safari the easy way

Pick and mix hundreds of hand-picked lodges to see how far your budget goes.

Safaris don’t get much better than walking in the wilderness with only a pair of binos and an expert guide, and some spectacular face-to-face wildlife encounters along the way. The original (and dare we say it, best) way to experience the bush, a walking safari can be a heart-pumping, camp-to-camp expedition spanning several days or a leisurely morning stroll returning to camp after morning coffee in a shady spot. Get involved in the planning of your own Africa walking Safari online. Mix and match lodges to create a walking safari that suits your style and budget.

With so much to do and see, planning an Africa walking safari can be daunting, but our safari experts will help you create and refine your trip until you’re completely happy.
