Customer Safaris are our Passion

Barefoot Safaris is a Member of the Malawi Tourism Association

Nothing pleases us more than the opportunity to bring our 30 years experience and passion for travel in Africa together to design individualized itineraries so that your safari dreams may come true.

 

Whether you use one of our prepared itineraries as a start, or we plan from scratch; our expert knowledge and attention to detail will provide you with a bespoke itinerary for, a trip of a lifetime.

 

We can guide you on where to save and where to spend to maximize your travel Dollar. Because we are independent and not tied to any agent or safari operator, we can bring you the very best value no matter what you want to do or where you go.

 

Our long standing relationships with a wide range of Africa’s camps, lodges and safari operators means we can offer you a truly outstanding range of quality experiences throughout the sub- continent.

 

A great way to start planning for your safari is to ask yourself the questions below, discuss them with the people traveling with you, then contact us and let us work our magic. Honeymoon, anniversary, family adventure, single getaway, cultural immersion, wildlife photography or just plain wanderlust; regardless of the reason you wish to travel to Africa, you will be amazed at how fun and easy planning a Safari can be.

 

When do you prefer to travel?

Do you have specific dates you need to work with or is your time flexible? For many popular destinations in Africa, May through November is an excellent time to travel.

 

How long would you like to go?

Do you only have a week, or is the length open ended as long as you get to see and do everything you want? For many people, 2 weeks is a good starting point.

 

How much would you like to spend?

There is a huge range of safaris from group camping experiences to ultra-luxurious lodges where you will have your own plunge pool and butler! The biggest drivers of safari cost are lodging, location and time. The smaller and more luxurious your accommodations, the more private and remote their location, and the closer you travel to peak seasons, the higher the cost.

 

What things would you like to see and do the most?

What is it that makes you want to go to Africa? Is it seeing masses of animals graze across an endless plain, watching a lion run down a zebra or coming face to face with a wild gorilla? Is it visiting a Maasai village, hunting with a Kalahari Bushman or helping researchers learn more about Africa’s extraordinary ecosystems? Maybe it’s tracking big game on foot like the first explorers, gliding over herds of wildebeest in a hot air balloon or walking through the African bush with a family of elephants? Or maybe it’s sipping fine wine in one of South Africa’s famous vineyards, toasting the sunset over the Indian Ocean, or relaxing on a palm studded, white sand beach. Once you know what’s most important to you on your safari, we will make sure it happens.

 

We look forward to hearing from you soon! .

African Proverbs

“The Axe forgets but not the tree”

“The man who wanted to gather too much honey was stung by the bees”

To think secretly is like the journey of a dog

Be on good terms with those you leave, because it is night where you are going

“The animal that has mud on its hooves is assumed to have been to the water hole

“A child who does not cry will die on its mother’s back
