Reasons to Choose a Fully Guided Private Tour

1

Guiding

Our qualified guides have enjoyed expert training and have many years of experience. They are passionate about their country and sharing it with the rest of the world. Most guests depart feeling like they've made lifelong friends.

2

Accommodation

Accommodation on private tours consists of hand-picked hotels, guest houses, and national park camps. Most properties are of a 4-Star standard, except for national park camps that offer basic but comfortable en-suite accommodation.

3

Vehicles

The vehicles used on our guided tours range from regular sedans to 4x4s and minibusses, all comfortable, air-conditioned, and serviced regularly. The type of vehicle will typically depend on the size of your group and the terrain covered.

Advantages

1

A Private Experience

Avoid becoming just another curious face standing on your tiptoes in the back of a tour group. Your African Sky guide will ensure unfettered access to Southern Africa's most sought-after attractions, with private transportation between highlights, your flexible itinerary tailored to your needs, and no obnoxious rubberneckers encroaching on your precious time.

2

Personal Attention

Your personal African Sky guide is dedicated entirely to your traveling party for the duration of your fully guided tour or safari. They will ensure that your individual experience is everything you wish it to be and more. You will not be competing with other guests to have your questions answered, or concerns heard.

3

Your own expert

Have any questions when you're observing wildlife in the Kruger National Park? Exploring the lush surrounds of the Garden Route? Visiting the historic battlefields of KwaZulu-Natal? Put your phone or guidebook away. You have your expert on hand, full of passion for their field, and eager to augment your tour experience.

4

Supreme Flexibility

Your daily schedule is rarely - if ever - fixed on a fully guided tour. Activity times favor optimal hours or your whims. If bad weather encroaches, days can be switched to take advantage. Ask your guide if you find that the safari bug has bitten and you'd prefer to spend the whole day game viewing in Kruger Park.

5

Your friend in Africa

More often than not, the guests who opt for our fully guided tours depart the continent feeling they've made a true friend. Our guides are professional but intuitive and relatable. They are not here to ensure that you get from point A to point B - they are inherently part of what will make your time in Africa unforgettable.

The Experience

Your fully guided experience can perhaps best be described as embarking on a grand adventure with a friend you didn't realize that you had - a friend equipped with all the knowledge and know-how to ensure an informative, safe and exhilarating safari or tour in Africa. You'll be able to savor some of the most stunning scenery that you've ever laid eyes on, be moved by awe-inspiring wildlife sightings, and unwind in great comfort without ever having to worry about the details - how you're getting from place to place, how much time you need to plan for, what you need to take along with you, etc.

These are some reasons why our fully guided tours are so popular and indelibly rewarding. Many of our guests return purely to reunite with their guide for another unforgettable, novel journey. They know that they're not only in good hands but in the company of someone who will shed light on all the aspects - the wildlife, the culture, or the history - that make each destination as unique and memorable as it is. Their knowledge is undeniably invaluable to the experience.

If you are visiting multiple areas, you may even have the fortune of being paired with a second African Sky guide. Either way, you are assured of a comprehensive, fully guided experience that you will remember forever.

Countries & Areas

The areas we include in our fully guided safaris and tours are limited to South Africa and Namibia. Both countries boast decent infrastructure that makes traveling overland safe and enjoyable. South Africa is ideal, with such a wealth of areas to explore that you'll undoubtedly have to return to experience more of it. Distances in Namibia can be extreme, but the scenery is spectacular, and your guide will ensure that the experience is enriching and unforgettable.

Fully guided safaris feature national parks like Kruger, Addo, Hluhluwe-iMfolozi, Ithala, and Pilanesberg in South Africa and Etosha in Namibia. At the same time, popular tourist destinations can range from Cape Town and the Garden Route to the historic battlefields of KwaZulu-Natal and the balmy beaches of the East Coast. In Namibia, you'll delight in the historical, cultural, and natural attractions of Swakopmund, Sossusvlei, Damaraland, the Fish River Canyon, and more.
