Pathfinders Safari



TRAILFINDERS SAFARIS
Below are some of the different types of safari that we offer - please speak to our specialist safari team for more details and for help in creating your perfect safari experience.



Private Safaris
A private safari affords you a personal guide who will ensure the safari is focussed on your particular interests. Travel at your own pace, stop for photos when you want and linger as long as you want to witness a particular animal or event – this really is safari at its best. Your private safari can depart any day of the week and last as long as you want, taking in exactly the national parks and game lodges you choose. Any of our small groups safaris can also be arranged on a private basis departing on the day of your choice so you can travel as a couple or make up your own group with family and friends.



Adventure Safaris
Adventure safaris are generally tent based safari experiences with more basic facilities and requiring an element of participation in the day to day camp activities. Larger groups and vehicles make this an affordable option. Please ask for a copy of our Adventure Touring brochure.



Fly in Safari Lodges
A lodge based safari experience where early morning and evening game drives/activities are conducted by the resident rangers, who have excellent local knowledge of the game and the surrounds. The lodges are accessed by plane; fly to a local airstrip where a representative will meet you and other guests and drive you to the property. For the ultimate experience join a

Flying Safari; these combine a number of lodges, each of which offers a unique experience.
