Off the beaten Track Safaris & Hidden Treasures

Overview

The remote, wilderness areas of Africa have a devoted, but by no means universal, following. You may need to conduct a little personal self-analysis to discover if a spell away from the trappings of civilization is really for you.

If the confines of a commuter train journey make your heart sing, then read no further! If your idea of heaven is the familiar press of humanity as you hurriedly weave through the shopping centre to the car park. Then save those frequent-flier miles for a New York shopping break. It isn't a question of comfort. You can sleep and eat in luxury and considerable style in some of these remote off the beaten track safaris in Africa. It’s more about whether you’ll be relaxed and spiritually reinvigorated by a spell in a place untrammeled by man. Or left feeling restless?

Many off the beaten track areas, which are technically deserts, are not what we might imagine, supporting plenty of vegetation and a diversity of wildlife. But don’t expect this to be a thrill-a-minute experience. These wilderness areas have a much more subtle, and lasting, charm.

So don't rush the experience. Allow at least 3 nights, preferably longer, so that you can soak up its unique atmosphere of these off the beaten track safaris.

Note

Though we pride ourselves on having several sample safaris which head to remote areas of Africa, there is naturally less of a demand. So most of our off the beaten track safaris are tailor-made to suit you, and not necessarily always on this website.

Want to head to the far corner of the Skeleton Coast of Namibia? No problem. Want to explore some of fascinating community-orientated lodges in Limpopo and the northern Kruger? Again talk to us...

Highlights

  • Africa’s wild places can be classic desert scenery; rich with ever-changing colour, photogenic and romantic such as the Skeleton Coast of Namibia. Or the Kalahari desert which stretches across Botswana, Namibia into northern South Africa.
  • Other pristine wilderness regions can be grasslands, forests or mountains. Such as the Busanga Plains of Kafue or the remote North Luangwa in Zambia.
  • Or the unique Afro-Montane Nyika Plateau in Malawi and the Bale & Simien Mountains in Ethiopia.

Everything was perfectly organised

"Mari did an incredible job planning our holiday. Not only did Mari communicate extremely well throughout the whole process, but the trip was beyond our expectations " Mr Yeats, 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

Couldn’t have been happier…

"Cedarberg and specifically our specialist Peter, have been excellent. Really communicative and just very on the ball. From the planning and payment, all the way through to arriving back home. The transfers, hotels, everything was spot on. Couldn’t have been happier with how our honeymoon went. " Mr Clark Hoy, UK
