create a truly bespoke adventure

Everybody is unique, and we believe the way you travel should be too. At Natural World Safaris we specialise in tailor-made wildlife holidays, granting you complete control over the minutiae of your safari. Whether you have your heart set on a once-in-a-lifetime trip or want to explore various options, our dedicated Destination Specialists will work with you to design a safari tailored to your specific requirements, including budget, dates, personal interests, standard of accommodation, the number of people travelling, and more.

With decades of experiences behind us, our team have an extensive knowledge base and are well versed in finding the right mix of wildlife and wilderness for each client. Each Destination Specialist has intimate, on-the-ground knowledge that will inform their decisions at each stage of the planning process, providing a range of activities, national parks, cultural sights and other highlights that can form part of your itinerary.

We understand that what may excite one guest may bore another.

We’ll speak with you to determine which animals and activities are top of your list, while taking into account your previous travel experience and expectations for the next chapter. Are you a keen photographer in search of a particularly elusive subject? We can arrange for the use of specialist guides, hides and photographic vehicles to help you capture the perfect shot. Have you seen your fair share of lions, leopards, polar bears and penguins, and want to focus on the less-feted members of the animal kingdom? By liaising with our network of ground agents, we can put you in the right place at the right time to observe whichever species you’re after.

No safari is too big or too small for NWS. We are happy to plan any trip, from multi-generational safaris in family-friendly Costa Rica to rough-and-ready journeys through the wilds of Kamchatka. If time constraints are an issue, we offer short fly-in safaris that include two gorilla tracking trips in the space of just four days. At the other end of the spectrum, epic “gap years” for grown-ups that last weeks and cross international boundaries can also be arranged. Guests can even choose to set up camp in the African bush or charter an ultra-luxe private yacht to take them over the horizon – all of this and more are available to those with a thirst for adventure.

Most of the itineraries you will see on our site are examples of tailor-made safaris, which you can enjoy “as is” or customise to your heart’s content. The budget, number of days, accommodation options and listed activities are designed as a guideline, which we hope will give you some ideas that can then be fashioned into your perfect trip with the help of our Destination Specialists. If you would rather book onto a set itinerary, please have a look at our small group safaris which depart on set dates throughout the year.
