OUR HOSTED SAFARIS

What is a Hosted Safari?

Hosted by Alexandra, who has spent 40 years exploring the region, together with our experienced local guides – we ensure an exceptional eco-cultural ‘unfiltered’ safari experience. As a small group, we explore the more remote regions of northern South Africa on one of our Getaway, Classic or In-Style Safaris, and on our Explorer Safarithe bordering region of southern Botswana. On all we take in the highlights, enjoying the magnificent landscapes, unique wildlife and fascinating communities that make the areas we visit so unique. Choose from a range of dates, and from 8 to 12 days in duration. Our Safaris offer the discerning traveller a variety of en-suite accommodation in stylish and luxury lodges, eco lodges, ‘Out of Africa’ style canvas, or a little of each!

OUR SAFARI RETREATS

What is a Safari Retreat?

We have taken the best of a retreat – the opportunity to focus on and master a skill, the camaraderie, the fun – and we have combined this with an optional 4 day Safari – an opportunity to practice what you have mastered during the retreat! We have two 5 day retreats on offer, one focused on photography, and the other on African village singing during which you will engage with and learn from experienced locals! Accommodation on retreat is in a tranquil game reserve setting and is all en suite in cosy cottages. On safari your accommodation is in en suite ‘Out of Africa’ style luxury tents in a Big Five Game Reserve.

Breathtaking sceneries combined with exceptional game viewing and rich cultural experiences made this the most complete safari experience ever! Alexandra’s passion for wildlife is infectious and she has made our holiday an experience we will never forget! Can’t recommend Alexandra’s Africa enough.

Dawid van den Bergh, Cape Town, South Africa

Deeply personal, small-scale safaris taking you right to the heart of South Africa – its incredible landscapes, rich wildlife and amazing people. Some of the safaris include bush-camps, but don’t be put off by the idea of a tent – these are spacious, comfortable and with en-suite facilities, and nothing quite beats a bush sunrise. Highly recommended.

Tim Burfoot, Cambridge, UK

We had an amazing time Alexandra looked after us brilliantly from start to finish. Her passion for and knowledge of the country made it educational, informative and great fun. The animals were amazing – a wonderful experience.

Miriam Doyle, Dublin, Ireland

A great trip with Alexandra’s Africa. We didn’t feel rushed – 3 relaxing nights at each stop so there was time to enjoy and immerse ourselves in the atmosphere of each place with all the details taken care of.  Would recommend.

Christopher Weatherill, London, UK

A relaxing and unique experience – we definitely recommend.

Esther O'Sullivan and James Butler, Southampton, UK

What a trip! Thank you Alexandra’s Africa for creating a very special safari for us. Every game reserve and lodge we visited had its own special charm. A uniquely beautiful blend of animals, nature and culture, as well as outstanding food and hospitality. Every day was a new adventure!

We had a fantastic safari with Alexandra’s Africa! The whole experience was personal and flexible, with Alexandra able to respond to some unusual requests, including obtaining a guitar. Thanks for making this such a wonderful experience. We are planning on returning in four years’ time to celebrate a big birthday!

Matthew and Alyson Grant, Newcastle, UK

Vast landscapes, intriguing cultures and Africa’s unique animal kingdom are blended on this safari into a life-changing experience. Alexandra’s attention to detail, her knowledge of Africa and dedication to deliver the best were evident throughout the trip. From day one we were immersed in the sounds, sights and smells of Africa.
