Safari & Wildlife
Experience an Authentic African Safari
If you’re big on the Big 5, we invite you to discover the best of the bush on luxury safaris with Explorer. From Chobe and the Serengeti to open vehicle game drives in a private reserve or a horseback safari in the Masai Mara, Southern Africa is the wildlife safari capital of the world, filled with bucket-list safari experiences.
There’s so much on offer: witness the Great Migration from a hot-air balloon, watch calving whales from the shores of Hermanus, or track cheetah on foot at Samara. A Kruger Park wildlife safari is ideal for first-timers who want to experience game viewing in style and luxury – and who want almost guaranteed sightings of the Big 5. You can also expect rewarding wildlife encounters on a walking safari in Zambia’s South Luangwa or among the wetlands of Botswana’s Okavango Delta.
