Top 10 African safari tour operators

When you decide to embark on a journey to Africa, you would want to be guided by the best African safari tour operators that understand the territories, know the best routes when on a game drive, and comes highly recommended due to the wonderful adventure experiences that they have been providing over the years.

Many countries in Africa offer safari experiences like nowhere else in the world. The abundance of wildlife diversity, historical monuments, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites gives the promise of rewarding adventures you will remember for life. That being said, the degrees of comfort and excitement you get from every safari journey largely depends on the operator who manages the travel, destinations, and accommodations. Some operators provide more for less money, yet there are probably others who fall short in terms of excellence.

Below is a list of ten best African safari operators in ten different countries:

 

South Africa

The options are seemingly limitless with Rhino Africa, a tour/safari operator based in South Africa. It is possible to explore the entire attractions and wildlife diversity of one specific country or you can choose to do cross-country excursions. Rhino Africa caters to all sorts of tourists from the young, the honeymooners, the adventurers, the active, and even the tired ones. Regardless of your personal preferences, Rhino Africa delivers.

Complementary financial protection and travel insurance are available as well.

 

Morocco

When it comes to wildlife safari, Morocco may not be the first country that comes to your mind, but there are still world class attractions and adventures to experience here. Morocco Expert Tours is one of few operators in the country which offer both package-based and tailored excursions across the magical landscape of Morocco. Exploration of Atlas Mountains, Sahara Desert, and imperial cities are just the basic offerings.

Recommended packages include:

  • Camel Trekking and Safaris for multiple days of adventures across Marrakech and Fes
  • Morocco Expert Group Tour – 15 days of excursions to cover all major attractions in the country

One of the best things about the safari operator is that you are allowed to choose any starting point in Morocco; it can be a hotel, a railway station, or an airport. In case the available packages are too limiting, you can make your own plan for the operator to accommodate.

 

Tunisia

Among all local safari operators in the country, Tunisia Safari stands out from the crowd thanks to its wide range of packages and the option of customize individual private tour. Weekly excursions include Sahara Explorer, Medinat Alzahra, and Tunis Carthage.

Where Expert Algeria shines is at its capability of catering to not only individual/private tours, but also more formal settings such as corporate services including cruise reception, business trips, and conference hosting.

 

Mozambique

In a country like Mozambique where wildlife safari is popular, there are just too many safari operators offering their services and claiming to be the best. Abundance of options does not necessarily make choosing easy, but Dana Tours is one of the easiest to find for good reasons. For decades, Dana Tours has played its role in promoting Mozambique tourism and turning first-time visitors to returning tourists.

Top destinations include:

  • Limpopo National Park
  • Niassa National Reserve
  • Maputo Special Reserve
  • Gorongosa national Park

Wildlife safari is the highlight of Mozambique tourism industry indeed, but Dana Tours has its own unique way to combine adventures in the wild with the diversity of Mozambique local cultures. It caters to individuals, couples, groups, and customizable safari packages.

Just like many other reputable safari operators in other countries in Africa, the Kagera Safaris is based in the capital of Uganda and it offers tailor-made tours for all. In fact, the operator can also include excursions to Rwanda, the adjacent country of Uganda. Eco tourism with a blend between wildlife diversity and local community engagement is Kagera’s specification.

Namibia

What makes Sense of Africa, a Namibia-based tour operator, stands out is its range of destinations of choice. Popular attractions are all covered, but the real highlights are the little-known destinations for quiet, calm, comfortable, unique, unforgettable safari and excursions.

Destinations include:

  • Etosha National Park

Several vehicles are available including VW Polo and Toyota Quantum 9-seater; all are hand-picked to conquer the challenging road conditions in the Namibia. Most guides working for the operator are local Namibian citizens with great personal involvement with the community and environment.

 

Senegal

Some of the best safari operators are not the biggest or most luxurious. Andaando, safari operator based in Senegal, is a fine example of that. Instead of relying on luxurious expensive tours to attract customers, Andaando offers personal one-on-one or small group tour only.

Top experiences include:

  • Bandia Wildlife Preserve
  • Dakar City Car Tour
  • Joal/Fadiouth - Shell Island
  • Popenguine
  • Niokolo-Koba National Park (Multi-Day Trip)

All tours are customizable. Another highlight is that the guide, despite young, is knowledgeable and experienced enough to know best destinations in both Senegal and Rwanda. He is also multilingual person fluent in English, French, and Wolof. Andaando is not a big company, and that can be a sign of affordability.

Conclusion

In a safari, the most important thing in the entire activity is the adventure and spectacles of wildlife or the nature. Some operators combine that with luxurious offerings on lodges or hotels, but this will also increase the total price. Customizable or tailored safari tour seems to be the best option for everyone; the journey, destinations, and accommodations can be all hand-picked by tourists based on personal preferences and budget.
