African Safaris Deals was founded with a clear vision: to make African safaris more accessible to all, hence offering Budget, Mid-range & Luxury Safaris.

For years, safaris have been notoriously exclusive and complicated to plan and book. Sadly, the only people losing out are the travellers themselves. We’re on a mission to change this.

Using over 20 years of experience Handcrafting unique and personal African Safaris

we’ve created a content-rich site that showcases our hand-picked crop of iconic African journeys, and empowers you to chop, change and refine these adventures, or simply build one from scratch—all under the specialist guidance from our experts.

We are keen travellers, visiting our destinations regularly, vetting the hotels and lodges we recommend. We travel the roads, sample the activities and we’ve built up an excellent network of suppliers offering you the most amazing travel experiences.

It’s time Africa moved out of the shadow of elite luxury travel, and the power puts back in the hands of people from all walks of life.
