Alexandra In Africa

Breathtaking sceneries combined with exceptional game viewing and rich cultural experiences. Alexandra’s passion for wildlife is infectious. A holiday 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. Don’t be put off by the idea of a tent – these are spacious, comfortable with en-suite facilities. Highly recommended.

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

On all we take in the highlights, enjoying the magnificent landscapes, unique wildlife and fascinating communities that make the areas we visit so unique.

OUR SAFARI RETREATS

What is a Safari Retreat?

We have taken the best of a retreat – the opportunity to focus on a skill, a hobby, a passion along with the camaraderie and fun – and have combined it with an optional 4 day Safari, which provides an opportunity to practice what you have mastered during the retreat! We have two 5 day retreats on offer, one focused on photography & videography, and the other on African village singing. For both, you will engage with and learn from experienced locals! Accommodation on retreat is in a tranquil game reserve setting and is all en suite adjoining our retreat farmhouse base. The five day retreat is followed by an optional 4 day Safari. On safari your accommodation is in en suite ‘Out of Africa’ style luxury tents in a ‘Big Five’ Game Reserve.

This is a fully hosted experience by Alexandra and her team.
