Safari Guide Training

Safari Guide Training

Safari guide training is gaining popularity as an alternative to a traditional safari. Instead of sitting in the back of a 4X4 and listening to all the information, travellers are now immersing themselves in experience by learning, training and practicing how to become professional safari guides.

African Bicycle Safaris

African Bicycle Safaris

Much of your African safari is enjoyed from a vehicle so why not diversify your experience by swopping four wheels for two. Bicycle safaris are fast becoming a feature of activities offered across Africa and deliver a different perspective to the environment.

Kenya’s Masai Mara & Private Conservancies

Our team travelled to East Africa to explore and learn. To make sure our travel recommendations are as good as we say they are. During October Marleen explored Kenya; starting at the famous Masai Mara and more north to the Lewa and Ol Pejeta conservancies.

Want to know more about the Shoebill?

Want to know more about the Shoebill?

In serious bird watching circles, the Shoebill Stork (Balaeniceps rex) is known as a ‘Mega Tick’ or even a ‘Lifer’, conveying the magnitude of such a sighting on one’s life list of recorded species. Birds like these are hard to find: they are rare – the Shoebill is listed as Endangered.

Southern Tanzania and Zanzibar

Southern Tanzania and Zanzibar

“Everything in Africa bites, but the safari bug is worst of all” – Brian Jackman. And would only add: “The only antidote is to go back on safari again and again.” So this time Sabrina and her husband ventured to East Africa, specifically to Southern Tanzania and Zanzibar.

Africa Marathons and Safaris

Africa Marathons and Safaris

The timing of the best African marathons, held in iconic destinations from Cape Town to Mount Kilimanjaro, coincides nicely with some safari highlights across both East and Southern Africa, so it makes a lot of sense to combine your African marathon with a safari.

Green Season Safari: Southern vs East Africa

Green Season Safari: Southern vs East Africa

Africa’s Green Seasons are synonymous with some of the year’s most exciting wildlife events – great migrations of antelope and zebra, the mass birthing of animals, the appearance of migrant birds, and the enrichment of the landscape with colour and form.

Adding Whales & Flowers to your Safari

Adding Whales & Flowers to your Safari

As the savannah landscapes dry up across Southern Africa, the opposite is happening in the South Africa’s Western Cape: colourful sunbirds and sugarbirds take advantage of bright flowering winter-aloes and the ocean welcomes the southern right whales, migrating from the Antarctic to the Cape.

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

An incredibly well organised tour with no hassles whatsoever.

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.

It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Heather (USA)
Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)

We have had a most memorable holiday staying at wonderful places thanks to Sabrina and Safari Online. Would recommend Safari Online to organise your holiday.

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

Ann and Mario (Canada)
Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!

Lukas (Germany)
Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!
