Beat About The Bush Safaris

Beat About The Bush Safaris specialises in tailor-made privately guided safaris to the prime wildlife, cultural, historical and scenic destinations of East & Southern Africa and South-East Asia (including India, Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka)

Our focus is on wildlife and wilderness areas and the cultural and photographic opportunities they offer. With this is mind, our itineraries maximise time on safari and wherever possible exclude nights in cities. The highlights of these cities and other areas are available as safari extensions.

In addition to customised safari itineraries, we also offer a number of set itineraries to all the major safari countries and combinations thereof and these are available where a specialist wildlife guide accompanies and leads the tour throughout (privately guided format) OR without a private guide where the local guides at each camp lead excursions (locally hosted format).

Tailor-made Travel

Please give us details of exactly what type of safari you are looking for and we will do our best to customise an itinerary that best suits your requirements.

In order for us to achieve this goal in the shortest possible time, the most important information we will need would be number and ages of travellers, preferred standard of lodges / hotels, preferred room configuration (twin, double, single or triple), length of intended stay in Africa, specific interests and overall budget.

Please forward this information via the contact form or, if you would prefer, send us an email or call us directly for assistance.

Set Itineraries / Scheduled Travel

Travel to Africa is an exercise that takes a lot of planning and travel time to and from the continent. Many people are often limited by the number of nights they can spend in Africa and, as a consequence, the number of countries they can visit. Internal flights between countries and destinations can also test the budget, so with this in mind, single country (destination itineraries) and country combo (explorer itineraries) safaris are available.

Most itineraries are in turn available at 3-4 star properties with or without a private guide (traditional safaris), or at 5 star properties with a private guide (exclusive safaris).

As far as safaris go, wilderness areas and the wildlife they contain certainly take centre stage. Our guides all have more than 10 years experience conducting high-end safaris in a diverse array of wildlife destinations in Africa. Their dedication to guiding in an ethical and professional manner, coupled to their experience, expertise, enthusiasm and dynamic personalities will ensure a memorable safari adventure.
