Luxury African Safari FAQs

What is a Luxury African Safari

At Ubuntu Travel, a luxury African safari is a seamless blend of personal attention, human connection, prime accommodations, and responsible tourism. We curate bespoke safari experiences with immersive wildlife encounters in pristine wilderness areas, ensuring comfort, meaningful connections, and support for conservation and community development projects.

Are African Safaris safe?

Yes, African safaris are very safe! Safari guides and staff are highly trained to ensure guest safety, understanding and recognizing animal behaviors. Our partners take extreme precautions, respecting the space of wild animals, to provide a secure environment for both guests and wildlife during their safari experiences. However, we must remember that these are wild animals and therefore can react conversely to what we might expect. It is always important to respect this position.

Where are the best Safaris in Africa??

With a continent so diverse in its destinations, landscapes, and safari experiences, pinpointing the best safari in Africa isn’t easy. But that’s why we are here. As a luxury African Safari Tour Agency, we’ve curated safaris across the continent, from South Africa’s Big Five safaris to the Great Wildebeest Migration in Tanzania and Kenya, and gorilla trekking in Rwanda and Uganda. Where is the best safari destination for you? While that truly depends on what you hope to experience, let’s organize a time to chat and plan your African Safari. For now, check out our blog post, “13 Most Popular African Countries to Visit.”

What does an African Safari Travel Agency do?

We customize journeys for individuals, couples, families, and private groups of all sizes, specializing in luxury safaris in Southern and East Africa. Through our conversations, we work closely with you to design safari itineraries that perfectly align with your travel goals, ensuring every adventure and experience is a bucket-list highlight.

What makes Ubuntu Travel different?

At Ubuntu Travel, we stand out by offering truly personalized, luxury safaris that seamlessly blend adventure, conservation, and cultural experiences. As a family-run agency with firsthand African travel experience, we prioritize authentic, human connections and provide 24/7 support throughout your journey. Our commitment to sustainable and ethical tourism also ensures that your travels positively impact both wildlife and local communities.

How far in advance should I book a safari?

We recommend booking your safari anywhere from six months to a year in advance, to be sure that you are able to secure your preferred accommodations and travel routes, as most lodges have limited accommodations and rooms fill up well in advance. If you are sure of your future travel plans, we can book over a year in advance, however, your international flights will need to be booked at a separate time, as those schedules are only released 11 months in advance. That being said, we are also able to book last minute travel, pending flight and lodge availability, and have done so on many occasions.

How much does a Luxury African Safari cost?

There’s a myriad of ways to approach travel in Africa, and understanding your preferences helps shape your budget to create the trip of your dreams. Our team at Ubuntu Travel is eager to help you plan your African adventures while accounting for your budget. Like most travel experiences, an incredible African safari can be achieved at many different price points; it just depends on the type of experience you are seeking. Due to our high-end commitments and services, our bespoke and luxury safaris typically start at $10K per person. Co-founder, Leah Green, has put together a basic list to consider when working on your travel budget:

  • How long do you want to travel for?
  • When do you want to travel?
  • Where do you want to visit?
  • What does your dream accommodation look like?
  • What type of experience are you looking for?

How do I plan a trip to Africa?

It all starts with a conversation as we work with you to customize your ideal trip, start to finish. Reach out to our experienced travel designers today and we’ll help make your bucket list vacation a reality. We are available to assist in person (if geographically possible), over the phone, or through Zoom calls. If you’d prefer to correspond via email, we’re happy to do so as well!

Can I plan an African Safari with kids?

With a heart-warming and resounding, YES! Ubuntu Travel is a family-run travel agency, and we have two little girls of our own. With a diverse set of experiences and family-friendly destinations, however, there are a few things to consider. We would love to navigate this with you and build a family safari that is perfect for you. You can also have a look at our “Guide to Going on Safari with Kids” blog post.

Let us design the perfect honeymoon safari tailored to your dreams and worth toasting to! May we propose that you look at our “Honeymoon Safaris” page for a few ideas on what’s possible.

Testimonials

  • Leah worked with us for over a month building the perfect 2 week honeymoon for us. She helped us decide on what area/countries of Africa were best for what we were looking for. Then, based on our budget, wish list of activities, and dates she gave us options on accommodations, schedules and activities and constantly reworked the itinerary until we were ecstatic about it. They respond very quickly to any email, call or whatsapp and were always there to answer our questions. They helped us with travel documents, covid tests, and airline flights. They even sent us Ubuntu Travel luggage that was perfect for the bush planes luggage requirements. Once we were in Africa, we never worried about anything at all - there was always a private car transfer, private guide, or someone to escort us. We were pampered and surprised with romantic dinners and champagne three times ! We were SO impressed and happy with everything they booked for us, and the entire process was COMPLETELY stress free. The trip was the trip of a lifetime - all thanks to Ubuntu ! We’ve already recommended them to so many of our friends !

  • Thank you to the entire team at Ubuntu Travel for listening to our desires, asking questions and then curating the perfect trip to Africa! If you are looking for a team to help you make your African dream trip come true, I highly recommend Ubuntu Travel! They were very easy to work with, detail oriented, communicative and professional. My husband and I had dreamt of taking our 3 adult children to Africa and Ubuntu Travel made this dream happen, even with COVID. Ubuntu's ability to navigate us through all the challenges/restrictions that came with COVID was above and beyond. We could not have done this on our own. Africa is a magical place and the Ubuntu's teams personal love for the Bush and extensive knowledge of Africa made our trip especially memorable. I highly suggest you trust them and let them do the planning you won't be disappointed. Don't wait book your safari now, Africa is incredibly special. Many thanks to the Ubuntu Travel team until we meet again!

  • I cannot recommend Ubuntu Travel enough! My husband and I used them to plan our honeymoon November 2021 and thought it was the best decision we made for our travels. Ubuntu was perfect for us because they made planning extremely easy and had excellent customer service. We had never traveled to Africa before and were planning our honeymoon during COVID so it is easy to get overwhelmed with all the travel requirements and options available. Ubuntu Travel curated the perfect itinerary for us based on our preferences over a few meetings and were always available for any questions we had. They also handled all of our transportation, activities, and COVID tests when we arrived in Africa which was very convenient. During the honeymoon they went above and beyond to check in on us to make sure all of our travels were running smoothly. The only thing we had to worry about was booking our flights there and back home! Thanks to Ubuntu Travel we had the honeymoon of our dreams and cannot wait to visit Africa again (and would 100% book through Ubuntu Travel again!).

  • We had the most incredible trip to Kenya that was organized by Kyle and Jenna at Ubuntu Travel. Everything from beginning to end was seamless. We started off our trip at Giraffe Manor which had been on our bucket list forever and it totally lived up to expectations. The accommodation, food and service were impeccable. The experience with the giraffes was incredible. My adult kids cannot stop talking about how special that experience was. We then moved on to the Masai Mara where we spent two days at Sanctuary Olanana and three days at andbeyond Bateleur. Both camps in every way were amazing. Traveling during COVID could be challenging but Ubuntu Travel were so thorough in their planning that our trip went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend Ubuntu Travel for travel to Africa, and am so thankful that I used them to create for my family and I a Dream vacation.
