Explore Africa with B&R

We’ve been going deep into the heart of Africa for decades. And if we could import only one thing about The Rainbow Continent, it would be this: Africa isn’t The Lion King—it’s the Louvre. With 19 million square miles of every stunning landscape imaginable, one trip can barely soak up its wonders. Which is exactly why we’ve designed dozens.

South Africa Walking Safari

This South African journey brings you the best of Cape Town, followed by two incredibly intimate safari experiences in the remote northern reserves of South Africa. Begin by hiking the iconic Table Mountain or kayaking with penguins at Boulder’s Beach on the Western Cape. Then, step off the beaten 4×4 track and explore Marakele National Park and Madikwe Game Reserve, where the wildlife viewing is outstanding and the history behind the reserves compelling. If that gets your heart pumping, wait until you see the lodges…

Tanzania Walking Safari

Get up close and personal with the giants of Africa as we embark on both walking and traditional game drives for the ultimate safari experience. We’ll dine in the Ngorongoro crater among lions and rhinos, revel in the electrifying colour of Lake Natron alongside flamingoes and end our journey with perhaps the most surreal moment of all—witnessing thousands of wildebeests and zebras race through the Grumeti Reserve. Equal parts relaxing and thrilling, we’ll have plenty of time to soak up the simple pleasures; making friends with the Maasai locals and ending our days with sundowners beneath the setting sun.

Rwanda Walking

Despite its troubled past, Rwanda is looking toward its future. Locals are forging new economies to move the country in a forward direction: seamstresses proud of their colourful dress, reformed poachers making a living by sustainable means and farmers planting coffee and tea. On this journey, you’ll start by exploring the vibrant capital city of Kigali, before venturing into the countryside to track Silverback gorillas and Golden Monkeys, stroll spectacularly green plantations and visit traditional fishing villages. Every step of the way, you’ll be sure to sense the collective determination to create a country that is peaceful, viable and authentic—this is what makes Rwanda an exceptional place.

Tanzania Family Safari

Take your tribe on a truly unique and adventure-filled journey through Tanzania. Walking safaris along with game drives give your family access to first-hand experiences, unlike your standard ‘driving-only’ safaris. Combining the Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater, the world-famous Serengeti and the lesser-known Mwiba Wildlife Reserve—this trip is designed for families with an ambitious spirit and a desire to engage in their environment. The rolling hills, open plains, groundwater forests, and massive volcanoes offer ample opportunities to witness the epic wildlife of Africa.

Begin your journey in South Luangwa, where safari legends such as Norman Carr, Robin Pope, and John Coppinger have left an indelible influence on the ethics and authenticity of the region’s wildlife experience. The land here is filled with meandering rivers and is home to the original walking safaris of the 1950s. From Luangwa, you’ll fly to Lower Zambezi National Park to explore the diverse animal life amidst the myriad islands, channels and open floodplains of the Zambezi River. Prepare yourself for up-close encounters and luxury safari accommodation beyond belief.

Kenya Safari

Safari is the Swahili word for ‘journey’ and Kenya evokes nostalgia for the earliest origins of the African safari. Romance and excitement are plentiful here, with Africa’s mightiest wildlife roaming free and a rich tribal culture embedded in the land. The dramatic landscapes frame your adventure, beginning in Nairobi and exploring the Chyulu Hills, the Mathews Mountains and beyond. You’ll witness tribal rituals, explore Big Five territory, hike along ancient elephant routes and stay in some of the greatest luxury wilderness camps Kenya has to offer. Caution: once you’ve spent your first night under the stars, you may never want to go home.

Zimbabwe Active Expedition

Discover the rich culture, deep history, and spectacular wildlife of Zimbabwe. We begin our journey exploring the Matobo Hills, where millions of years of erosion has hewn shapes from granite rock, creating gravity-defying formations that serve as a resting place of benevolent spirits. Settle into a different tempo as we move north to Hwange for thrilling game drives on the lookout for the wide variety of mammals and birds that inhabit the diverse landscape. Finally settling into our final moments at a tranquil oasis on the banks of the impressive Zambezi River, we’ll take in one of nature’s Seven Wonders of our World, Victoria Falls, before being serenaded by pods of hippos at night.
