A&K pioneered the idea of the luxury safari in Africa over 50 years ago, and with offices throughout Africa and our own people on the ground, our knowledge and experience in African holidays and Safaris is unsurpassed. Our Classic Journeys cover all of the must-see safari destinations, including South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe & Zambia, Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya.

South Africa is a one-stop shop with wonderful scenery, excellent safari, vineyards, culture and superb wine and food - it has it all, and the best way to experience it is by car. This Classics self-drive holiday allows you to experience all the country has to offer, and at your own pace. Starting with three days in Cape Town - where we'll give you a spa voucher for two at your hotel - explore the vibrant city before visiting the whale watcher's paradise of Hermanus, Plettenburg Bay and finally Safari in the Eastern Cape at Kariega Game Reserve.

Africa is synonymous with safari, and Kenya, Tanzania and Botswana offer unrivalled safari experiences. On our Classics journeys you'll be accompanied by the most knowledgeable and experienced guides, stay in the most luxurious lodges and see a plethora of wildlife - in Kenya look out for the Big Five; in Tanzania view elephant, giraffe, buffalo, lion, leopard and cheetah; and in Botswana you'll have the chance to walk in the wild with semi-habituated elephants. Uganda of course is famous for its mountain gorillas and chimpanzees, and twitchers will love the shaded forest trails that are home to over 600 recorded species of bird.

Zimbabwe & Zambia also boasts fantastic game viewing and lodges, and no trip to the region is complete without seeing the majestic Victoria Falls that straddles the two countries.
