A quick stopover in Nairobi, at the beautiful Hemingways Hotel, allows guests the opportunity to ‘adopt’ and feed baby elephants at the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage.

"Kyle and Leah at Ubuntu Travel curated my wife's and my Honeymoon. We put a lot of faith in their hands as we had no idea how to plan a Safari vacation. We gave them a budget, and they offered us a couple of different options that could work. Throughout the decision making process they were responsive, professional, and so helpful. We ended up on doing a week in and around Cape Town followed by Safari at Ngala in South Africa and the Okavango Delta in Botswana. It was perfect; the logistics of the trip were seamless. We wouldn't have changed a single thing. The Ubuntu team completely understood what we wanted for honeymoon and delivered. We have already recommended them to friends and family who are looking to try their first or second or third safari. Thanks Ubuntu!"
"We used Ubuntu Travel for our Honeymoon and could not have been more pleased. They took care of everything and made us not have to think about all the ins and outs of traveling all over South Africa, allowing us to enjoy our trip. The facilities at the safari lodges were phenomenal. Would and have recommended them to everyone!!"
