Destinations to Explore
"I had such an incredible time on my visit to Phinda Private Game Reserve with Ubuntu! Some of my highlights included a pre-trip packing list, advice for what to expect in this part of South Africa and even some Ubuntu merch to wear on my trip. It was an unforgettable week on the Phinda Trip and if you are interested in animal conservation, this is a great entry-level safari for anyone interested in finding more purpose in their travels. We spent the week learning about animal conservation and the highlight was of course dehorning a rhino to help protect them from poaching. It was truly the trip of a lifetime."
"This was a dream vacation the lodges were beautiful the food fabulous people amazing animals fantastic everything was perfect from start to finish arrangements from start to finish were impeccable."
Ubuntu Travel helped us plan a perfect, safe trip during the pandemic, to Tanzania. The service and hospitality was out of this world. Because of that, we didn’t just feel welcome, we felt at home. Ubuntu Travel helped to find the perfect locations, from an amazing luxurious tented camp where we slept under the stars and got woken up by a giraffe, to a beautiful modern hotel at Zanzibar and a private island with amazing reefs for diving called Mnemba. To top it off, Ubuntu Travel helped to plan our surprise wedding proposal on the beach of Zanzibar (she said yes!). We could not ask for more. This whole trip has been a dream come true and we can’t wait to go back to Africa, ofcourse, via Ubuntu Travel again!
"From start to finish, the Ubuntu team provided us with the most exceptional service and safari experience. We only had 10 days to plan our trip and Ubuntu relieved us of any stress. They were timely, thoughtful, and never missed a single detail. At each destination, the food, lodging, and game drives were top-notch. My clients and I both agreed it was one of the most extraordinary and special trips we’ve ever been on. Thank you, Ubuntu, for the wonderful memories!"
"Thank you Ubuntu Travel Team! We cannot thank you enough for the expert attention to detail throughout each phase of our adventure. From pre-planning, vaccination assistance, to accommodations and experiences once on the ground; our trip is one that exceeded all expectations. We would like to make special note of the incredibly kind and knowledgeable safari guides and resort staff that accompanied us throughout our stay. Every inquiry we had regarding landscape or animal species was thoroughly answered. These guides are all highly educated and the proficiency displayed by each and every guide while on safari added even more to the value and enjoyment of our holiday. We truly fell in love with the land and the people. Thank you for providing us with the trip of a lifetime."

What does a safari agency do?
We customize journeys for individuals and groups of all sizes, specializing in luxury safaris in Southern and East Africa. We work closely with our clients to design itineraries that fit their specific travel goals with the sole focus of delivering bucket list adventures and experiences.
How far in advance should I book a safari?
We recommend booking travel 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 safe is a safari?
Very safe! Safari guides and staff are highly trained to keep guests safe during their safari experiences. Understanding and recognizing animal behaviors is a key part of ranger training, teaching guides to respect the space of wild animals and provide a safe environment for both the guests and the wildlife.
