Reasons to Book a Partly Guided Safari Tour

1

Guiding

When you opt for a partly guided tour or safari, you'll enjoy the rewarding combination of having a private African Sky guide for touring and the exemplary skills and insight of resident rangers and trackers when you visit safari lodges.

2

Accommodation

Your lodgings will consist of comfortable guest houses and hotels during your tour portion and plush four or 5-Star lodges for the safari legs. A range of options is available to complement all budgets and interests.

3

Vehicles

Tour transportation range from closed, comfortable air-conditioned vehicles - usually a sedan, minibus, or 4x4 - while your game drives at the safari lodges will venture out in specially modified open-air 4x4 safari vehicles.

Advantages

1

Best of both worlds

On a partially guided tour and safari, you'll be able to savor both the expertise and companionability of your personal African Sky guide and the tried and tested knowledge of rangers and trackers fully immersed in the wilderness on a daily basis. You'll be exposed to a broader scope of professional individuals, each enhancing your adventure in their particular way.

2

Variety of accommodations

Throughout these partially guided tours and safaris, you'll experience a greater variety of accommodations in your itinerary. These will range from hotels and guest houses within easy walking distance of a range of exciting attractions to safari lodges with the wilderness right at your doorstep. Comfort and quality are standard across the board.

3

Activities Galore

Unlike a fly-in safari, restricted mainly to safari activities conducted at the lodge, your partially guided tour and safari opens up a wealth of other exciting opportunities. You'll experience authentic open-air 4x4 game drives, tourism highlights like cultural village tours, the cable car trip to the top of Table Mountain, and gazing upon the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls.

4

See more, do more

Throughout your partially guided tour and safari, you'll be flying AND driving overland to the various destinations included in your itinerary, enabling you to see more of the countries you are exploring while eliminating unnecessary distances to reach the more remote areas. Relish spectacular scenery where it counts and convenient travel where it is more beneficial.

5

Diversity of Destinations

Some destinations are accessible via the nearest airport. Still, many more off-the-beaten-track outposts require a bit of an adventure to reach - via an overland journey with your guide or a dedicated charter flight into the heart of the Okavango Delta. Delight in diversity when you combine these aspects in your partially guided tour and safari.

The Experience

The most rewarding experiences in life are often those characterized by balance, which is part of what makes our partially guided tours and safaris so appealing to travelers of all interests. It is possible to experience the best of both worlds - to enjoy an authentic safari, complete with the services of a resident ranger and tracker, and to tour South Africa and Namibia's highlights on a privately guided overland adventure.

Despite the adventure variation, you'll find the transition between each element of the itinerary seamless. Your African Sky guide will expertly steer you through the local highlights of various cities, towns, and breathtaking natural attractions. Before assisting you in catching a flight for the fly-in leg of your adventure, where you'll be entrusted to the capable care of lodge staff.

Inclusions may vary throughout, but at no time will you be left to navigate the experience on your own (save for personal preference, of course). This fact is arguably the most enriching and comprehensive way to travel in Southern Africa, ensuring both enough down and personal time and immersion in the wealth of adventures on offer.

Countries & Areas

When it comes to the countries and areas included in our partially guided tours, you can really use your imagination. Combining privately guided and fly-in aspects just opens up such a wealth of destinations to choose from, as you are not limited to one single element of travel type. Couple a tour of Cape Town with a safari in the Sabi Sand, or an adventure in the Okavango Delta with a visit to the world wonder of the Victoria Falls - the possibilities are seemingly endless.

Our partially guided tours combine the most appropriate destinations for ease of movement, overall affordability, and maximum enjoyment. Transitioning between countries and areas will feel surprisingly smooth for precisely the above reasons, whether you are bidding the Cape Winelands farewell for the stark Namib Desert or leaving behind the city lights of Joburg for the pristine beaches of Mozambique.
