Small Group Escorted Tours
Africa can often be a daunting destination for first time visitors, so why not join one of Eclipse Travel's exciting small group tours and experience the magic of safari whilst making new friends along the way? These unique small group tours offer the most enjoyable way to experience all that Africa has to offer, whilst sharing the experience with like-minded travellers. All the time you will be in the expert hands of an experienced guide who will help you ‘get beneath the surface’ to help discover the real people, places, culture and incredible wildlife of this amazing continent. Solo travellers, couples and friends travelling together are all welcome, and the mix is what makes these escorted group tours work so well.
Example Escorted Tour: Great Trans-African Lodge Safari: Spend 21 days exploring Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe on this small group tour. From marvelling at Victoria Falls to the breath-taking magnitude of Namibia’s dunes and big game interaction, this tour combines all the comforts of lodge accommodation with an unforgettable safari experience.
Taking a safari on foot brings about a totally new way of understanding your surroundings. Your guide (who may be armed depending on the location) can show you how to track wildlife, and you will begin to notice the smaller things around you; taking the time to smell, listen and seek out the wealth of animal and bird life that surrounds you. Walking safaris are most often completed as a half day excursion from your safari camp or lodge, but in some locations you have the option of taking a mobile walking safari where you walk between camps each day, looking for wildlife along the way. Walking safaris can be offered throughout Africa with some fantastic multi day walks offered in Zambia and other unique experiences like rhino tracking in Namibia and gorilla treks in Rwanda and Uganda. Walking Safaris can usually only be done at lodges in private conservancies.
If you have a higher budget and want to cut out long-distance driving, why not opt for a fly-in safari, which will take you from one safari camp to the next, staying in exceptional accommodation? This option maximises your time on the ground — not to mention the spectacular views that you will get from the comfort of the plane. When you reach your camp, you will have a range of activities to choose from including game drives, boat trips and walking safaris.
Safari holidays are, without doubt, one of the most amazing and unique travel experiences in the world, however they can also be quite hard work at times. After a few days on safari with early morning starts and so much to take in, you may be ready for a change of pace. Kicking back and relaxing on one of Africa’s exceptional beach destinations such as Zanzibar, Mozambique, the Kenyan coast or even Mauritius and the Seychelles can offer the perfect complement to your safari.
