The Africa team at Steppes Travel are considered to be the most experienced Africa experts in the travel industry. With more years of hands on African experience than they care to remember, they have run and managed safari lodges in East Africa, qualified as safari guides in Southern Africa, pioneered new expeditions in Central and West Africa and worked on conservation projects throughout the continent.
As such they are truly passionate about the areas they know and love and are equally happy discussing luxury lodges and family safaris in Kenya’s Maasai Mara and Tanzania’s Serengeti as they are helping plan voyages through the land of the Black Pharaohs in Northern Sudan or adventurous expeditions to Congo and Central African Republic.
From the classic bush camps in Zambia allowing for world famous walking safaris in some of Southern Africa’s most remote and unspoilt National Parks, to the perfect introductory safari in South Africa , offering world class game viewing, fantastic family lodges as well as exciting marine safaris along the Cape Garden Route with the added bonus of some of the world’s finest vineyards as a diversion.
Travel to Botswana and enjoy pirogue rides past pods of hippos in the sparkling waters of the Okavango Delta, or take time to visit some of Zimbabwe’s spectacular and welcoming parks before the crowds return. For many, it is the chance to explore the classic open savannahs of Kenya and Tanzania, both of which offer some of the most inspiring big game viewing on the planet including the annual wildebeest migration – for many a safari at its most raw making for a spectacular photographic safari too.
The lush forested slopes of Rwanda and Uganda are also home to one of the world’s most iconic animals, the mountain gorilla the chimpanzee. A chance to come face to face with our closest living relatives andfor many it is the ultimate wildlife experience.
For those looking to enjoy a very different Africa, then a trip around Madagascar with its unique wildlife, a journey to the Congo or the chance to explore the rich cultural heritage in Ethiopia, will satisfy even the most seasoned Africa hands looking for something different.
Whilst trawling the internet and looking through brochures is very much part of the fun when planning any adventure, there is undoubtedly no substitute for picking up the phone and speaking to us – we know the areas, we’ve travelled the length and breadth of the countries and we’ve stayed in the lodges. To start planning your next African adventure, please pick up the phone and call us on 01285 880 980 or drop us an e-mail. We look forward to hearing from you.
