Brett Horley Safaris

Adventures on the African continent


Using only the finest ecologically sensitive and sustainable camps and activities,
Brett Horley Safaris celebrates ecotourism through conservation, and community upliftment.

“I want to share my passion for the natural world. I believe that an experience in Africa’s greatest wilderness areas has the ability to astonish and inspire, and to enrich and energise the soul. This is where the fire burns inside of all of us, and where we discover some of Mother Nature’s most primordial personalities. The desire for more, and the thrill of the unknown is what keeps bringing us back!” - Brett Horley

  • Walking Safaris

    Walking Safaris

    A walking safari is the ultimate safari experience, combining wilderness, sustainability, exercise, adrenalin and quiet moments of solitude and reflection. Tracking big game on foot is an inherent instinct inside of us; we all just need to unleash that instinct. Listening, hearing – an insect tip toeing on grains of sand, an alarm bark of a kudu, or the stomach rumble of an elephant.

Here are some of my favourite countries and the National Parks and Reserves
and Wild Places I have been fortunate enough to visit. Just to get the Africa bug biting!
There are countless more special places, so have a read and let’s start planning…

South Africa

South Africa

The Rainbow Nation, my homeland. A country so diverse and beautiful, one needs a lifetime of safaris to explore all it has to offer. The Kruger National Park is where my heart and soul live. Must-dos include leopards in the Sabi Sand, walking safaris in the Klaserie, and an excusive-use, fully catered, privately guided camp in the Timbavati where BHS offers a full turnkey package. The Timbavati, Klaserie, and Sabi Sand make up the Greater Kruger, offering the world’s best up-close game viewing. Accommodation varies from ultra-luxury to sleeping around a fire under the stars. South Africa is also the last stronghold of the rhino.


The Okavango Delta - the jewel in the Kalahari - has to be on all travelers’ bucket lists. Destinations such as Savute, Chobe, and Nxai Pan and Central Kalahari, mean a multiple-stop safari in Botswana is the ultimate. Cruising through crystal clear waters in a dugout canoe, fishing for tiger fish, tracking leopards, and meeting the beautiful people. Mobile safaris with Letaka Safaris, searching for the Pel’s fishing owl, sundowner boat trips on the Chobe River: the Selinda Game Reserve in northern Botswana could be my number 1 reserve in Africa!


What was once the breadbasket of Africa still offers a truly amazing safari experience. As a young boy, I fell in love with guiding on Lake Kariba, tracking black rhino on foot. A houseboat on Lake Kariba continues to be in the top 10 of family/group experiences in Southern Africa. Mana Pools offers unique freedom to explore on foot, where elephant bulls and African wild dogs regard us as part of their natural world. Canoeing the Zambezi, camping at waterholes and being serenaded by lions in Hwange, not seeing humans for 4 days in Gonarezhou National Park, or my wife catching a record tiger fish at Singita Pamushana!


Starting in Livingstone at the mighty Victoria Falls, there is no better way to kick off a safari. From the leopards in South Luangwa, walking with Africa’s legends on foot in Africa’s best wild places, exploring the untouched and untamed Kafue where rare species reside, or tracking Africa’s unknown migration in Liuwa Plains. Zambia offers truly spectacular game viewing and unique experiences, like the millions of bats in Kasanka or canoe trips on the Zambezi River.


Kenya: the original safari destination. The Masai Mara Game Reserve speaks for itself, but what about elephants in Amboseli, or searching for the most elusive black leopard by night, while fly fishing in untouched rivers by day in Aberdares National Park? We were lucky enough to see black serval and giant forest hog, but what about the unknown bongo antelope in the high altitude forests? Kenya offers stunning beaches and the Great Migration, so many different amazing parks to visit – this is a wonderful safari destination.
