The African safaris offered by African Sky include the most exciting and breathtaking wilderness areas stretched across the southern slice of Africa. From the riverine beauty of the Okavango Delta to remarkable tracts of sweeping grassland and mopane woodland in the Kruger National Park, the wealth of wildlife that roams these regions will ensure awe-inspiring sightings throughout your safari.
With so many exciting destinations to choose from, safari enthusiasts will be spoiled for choice. The Kruger National Park is generally considered a 'bucket list' attraction. The park's remarkable diversity of wildlife, impressive size, fine infrastructure and variety of accommodation options makes it quite popular, and with good reason.
For seasoned travelers, more remote safari experiences are available in Botswana, Namibia and Zambia. Because of their far-flung nature, many of these lodges tend to be a bit on the expensive side. However, upon arrival, you will quickly realize why those extra pennies are worth it - this is wildest Africa at is most unspoiled and untamed.
A great way to experience the wilderness of the Sabi Sand in the greater Kruger National Park in combination with Cape Town and the Cape winelands before enjoying the highlights of Namibia. Then it's on to the Okavango Delta, Botswana's most pristine wilderness, area before a short visit to the Victoria Falls.
The Three Countries & Cape Town safari focuses on the primary travel destination in South Africa, Botswana and Zambia. This luxurious safari explores each area from a base at one of the finest hotels or lodges located in the area.
The countries of South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe are the focus of this southern African safari that explores the Sabi Sand before visiting a wilderness area in Zimbabwe and the two primary safari areas in Botswana - Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta.
Visit South Africa's favorite city in combination with a stay at one of the country's premier private lodges. In Cape Town, your African Sky guide will bring the highlights of the city to life. At Lion Sands, dramatic wildlife scenes will unfold in the company of a resident ranger.
Those on a budget will be well served by booking the In-Depth Kruger safari for exceptional game viewing in one of Africa's top national parks. This private overland safari is led by one of our experienced guides.
Our South African safaris include the unique wildlife reserves of KwaZulu-Natal as well as the malaria-free parks of the Eastern Cape and North West provinces. These safaris range from standard guided overland trips to exclusive fly-in packages.
South Africa's 'world in one country' description certainly extends to its wilderness areas. There is such an incredible diversity in geography, vegetation and species that we highly recommend experiencing more than one safari destination if your time and budget allow it.
The Kruger Park safaris offered by African Sky count among our most popular safari packages. With almost 150 different species of mammal and all levels of accommodation available (camping to ultra-luxurious lodges), it is not difficult to understand why.
The amount of return visitors and frequency with which even locals visit the park is a testament to just how wonderful (and addictive!) the park is. Kruger truly is more than just a safari destination - it is an experience. It takes hold of the heart and soul and, once it does, you will find it impossible to shake.
A safari in the Sabi Sand is indelibly a luxury safari experience. With its wealth of premium four and five star lodges and a 50km border open to the Kruger National Park, Sabi Sand is the go-to destination for nature enthusiasts who also harbor a taste for the finer things in life.
The reserve stretches across 65 000 hectares of prime unspoilt bushveld. Each lodge has its own specific area of traversing rights, which means that traffic at sightings is low to non-existent. There is quite a thrill in sharing a leopard sighting or lions on a kill with only a handful of other souls!
African Sky offers safari packages to the Okavango Delta, Chobe National Park and Makgadikgadi Pan - areas renowned for their remote wildernesses and sheer natural beauty.
One of the main distinctions of a safari in Botswana is the amount of exclusive safari activities on offer: mokoro rides in the delta, river cruises on the Chobe and quad bike safaris over the pans will provide thrills unavailable elsewhere. Botswana is a particularly great travel destination for visitors who've already been to South Africa and are looking for a novel adventure.
Namibia is one of the most unique safari destinations in Africa. Visitors will be astounded by the wealth of wildlife found in semi-arid regions like Etosha, or by the sky-scraping dunes and rare desert creatures that inhabit Sossusvlei.
Many of our Namibian safaris incorporate more than just game viewing and wildlife, including visits to the handsome seaside town of Swakopmund with is distinct German colonial flavor, or a cultural encounter with the local Himba people of Damaraland. This country offers more than meets the eye.
Our most popular safaris in Zambia typically visit the the Victoria Falls - the country's main attraction. Exciting activities such as elephant-back safaris and Zambezi River cruises characterize these adventures.
Safaris to the country's more remote wilderness areas - like the South Luangwa, Kafue and Royal Zambezi national parks - are increasingly in demand. African Sky sorts out all the logistics to ensure that you reach 'deepest, darkest Africa' with remarkable ease.
I tried contacting another agency, but when they saw the package I wanted with African Sky, they stopped e-mailing. Andrew was great in helping to plan the trip and adjusting details to suit our needs. The guides assigned to us were professional, personable and flexible. This was a once-in-a-lifetime adventure made incredible by the folks at African Sky.

A safari in Africa can be one of the world's most rewarding travel experiences. The most important aspects to take into account during the planning phase is to ensure that you get accurate advice and that your budget, expectations and requirements are well communicated.
South Africa is a great destination for a first time safari because of its well-developed infrastructure and the ease with which the various safari areas can be reached. Botswana and Namibia should be considered by those who are unafraid of light charter flights, and who have an appetite for exploring some of Africa's last Edens.
Whichever area or safari package you choose, a general rule of thumb should be to spend more time visiting fewer destinations as opposed to trying see all that Southern Africa has to offer on one safari. The minimum stay I would recommend is three to four nights in a specific safari area.
