One Country Wonders

With many African countries offering a wonderfully rich variety of experiences, it’s easy to plan an incredible safari holiday in one destination; you can simply step off your international flight, put your passport away and let Africa wrap herself around you. Whether you choose a classic beach and safari combo in Kenya or to explore Namibia’s wondrous scenery and desert-adapted animals, we can guarantee epic wildlife encounters and memories to last a lifetime. Here’s a glimpse at some of Africa’s best ‘one country’ safari countries.

Astonishing wildlife mixed with a wealth of activities warrants Kenya’s reputation as one of Africa’s most prized destinations. A safari here offers a quintessential ‘Out of Africa’ experience to delight veteran safari-goers and new travellers alike. There’s no question that Kenya is a knockout safari country, and best of all you can enjoy both safari and beach within its borders.

Roughly four times the size of the UK, Tanzania is a very big place, and one of the most complete safari destinations on the African continent, with phenomenal wildlife populations, some of Africa’s most iconic landmarks and gorgeous beaches a short flight away in Zanzibar (part of the United Republic of Tanzania so no extra entry formalities). It’s an excellent choice for a safari holiday spent in one country.
