Safari & Wildlife Holidays

Safaris are often associated with Africa - for which Abercrombie & Kent has unrivalled credentials and expertise - and it's no wonder with the Big Game viewing in Kenya, the annual migration of wildebeest running between the Masai Mara and the Serengeti, and the primates holding fort in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. In short, Africa is a diverse continent with unlimited safari experiences.

Yet it's not just Africa that can lay claim to the safari and fantastic wildlife spotting opportunities, with plenty more countries such as Galapagos, Sri Lanka, India and Canada housing rare and wonderful species of wildlife. Galapagos is home to the incongruous blue-footed booby, Sri Lanka to the elusive tiger and Canada the grizzly bear. Brazil's Pantanal also has a lot to boast about with over 700 species of birds, 260 species of fish and 80 reptile, as well as the biggest concentration of large animals in the New World.

The question is, however, where to go first? Luckily we know the best times of year to visit each place, and where to stay, meaning we can tailor an authentic safari experience just for you.
