Adventure Safaris

Adventure safaris to far flung destinations including sample active safaris & more adventurous game lodges & camps with safari activities on foot, by canoe or mekoro, even on horse back...

Overview

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.

A varied and fantastic holiday that we will never forget

"Milandi interpreted all our needs perfectly and the tailor-made holiday was way beyond our expectations. As a first time visitor to South Africa, we were quite apprehensive about safety, but all the places chosen for us to stay in were comfortable and hospitable." Mr Andrew Thompson

I loved the trip!

"I loved the trip. The accommodation was all lovely, i.e. comfortable, nicely located, some nice touches (e.g. treats at bed turn down), the managers were all helpful. The locations of each were also beautiful and convenient for what we wanted to do" Mrs Deb, USA

Great itenerary

"The service that Cedarberg provided for us was outstanding. The itinerary that they put together worked seamlessly, all the pick ups were as they had stated and whenever we had a query about any aspect of the trip they came back to us quickly and provided all the information that we needed. I cannot recommend them highly enough ." Mr Kevin Wilson

Most amazing holiday in SA

"Thank you for the most amazing holiday in South Africa. The three lodges were all selected with great care and each had a different atmosphere. All transfers worked entirely smoothly and we were even met on arrival at Johannesburg airport to be escorted the few yards to the airport hotel! Cedarberg really came into their own when BA messed up theoutgoing flight (twice) and Ginny spent her entire Bank Holiday weekend sorting it out for us." Mr Mike Ricks, UK

Special memories

"I would like to thank you for the very full and comprehensive travel documents you put together for us – it made our trip so easy! The organisation was perfect and it was so helpful to have contact names for our hosts along the way! Our trip has certainly wetted our appetite for more holidays farther from home and other parts is SA. I have no doubt we’ll be returning one day! My overriding memory though is of the friendly people !”" Mr Mo Hemsley, UK

The trip was amazing

"I will write in detail about all the places. In the meantime, I just wanted to write you a quick note to say THANK YOU so much for putting a wonderful trip together for our family. From the beginning to the end the trip was amazing. I will highly recommend you to anyone in the future for South Africa." Mr Gord Dubey, USA
