This is always a tricky safari category to describe as one person’s extreme adventure may be quite tame for someone else. But we've pulled together our sample safaris and game lodges & camps which offer the greatest opportunity to be active and adventurous whilst on safari in Africa.
There's a wide range of adventure safaris! Some on foot, some by canoe or mokoro, some on horse back or even mountain bike. Exactly what’s on offer varies from camp to camp.
Our adventure safaris offer the greatest opportunity to be out and about. You won't be just sitting in a game vehicle. But that’s where the similarity ends.
Some are focused around staying active such as our South Africa and Victoria Falls Adventure . This is great for honeymoon couples, but open to anyone who likes to stay on the move. Others are adventurous simply because of the remote wilderness areas they visit. Others offers a more adventurous mode of travel and accommodation such as our mobile camping safaris...
You'll see some common adventure safari themes here. For example, we class the gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda and Rwanda as adventurous as there's some tough hiking involved in remote areas. Similarly many walking safaris in Big Game country are adventurous safaris because of the very nature of the experience.
Cannot recommend enough"I cannot recommend Cedarberg Africa enough, and more specifically, Mari Jacobs. I knew nothing about Africa and I thought it would be a wonderful place to go for our 2-week honeymoon. A co-worker had done a similar trip and passed along Mari’s name to me. She really is excellent at what she does and, most importantly at the time, she makes everything as stress-free as possible. " Mrs Denise Rehrig, USA
Exactly what we wanted"The services Cedarberg provided was excellent. We had a few hiccups and needed to change the itinerary a couple of times but Cedarberg was very quick to respond to our needs and helped us out very quickly. All the accommodations were excellent and suited us perfectly for what we wanted and doing at that time. " Mrs Kim Swain
