Privately Guided Safaris
This is a safari package perfect for groups or families looking for an exclusively booked lodge or villa, and would like to tailor-make the experience. A private chef and private guide are there to offer their expertise and adapt to guests’ individual requirements. This way, the safari activities run at your own pace, and dietary choices can be easily catered for. Private guides will be with you throughout the experience, helping with logistics and travelling. Cape Town villas, and retreats throughout South Africa are ideal for this level of private travel experience. A tailor-made trip ensuring the very best experience for each individual person.
A walking safari is the ultimate safari experience, combining wilderness, sustainability, exercise, adrenalin and quiet moments of solitude and reflection. A safari on foot is an experience beyond a game drive, where the comforting confines of a vehicle dull your finer-tuned senses and eliminate a host of details too small to see from your seat. To walk in the untamed bush is to see your surroundings in a multi-dimensional form, where all your human senses play a part in your safari experience. This is about tracking, birding, discovering, admiring, and remembering the bush in its entirety.
The Greater Kruger Park has some sublime self-catering, exclusive-use safari lodges, varying from casual and rustic, to indulgent and luxurious. A very popular destination and style of safari for adventurous groups from South Africa and travelling from abroad. A self-catering safari is often the most affordable and easy-going holiday experience with personalised style, while a private chef is available for guests who would like to be catered for. Family fry-ups on the deck in the mornings, lazy lunches, and festive braais in the boma each night – this is what a self-catering safari is about.
Group Safari Experiences
Group safari programmes are totally flexible and tailor-made to groups with specific interest. Guided and led by Brett, with the assistance of subject experts along the way, these safaris call on leaders in specific fields of research, conservation, and veterinary science. This is for you if you want fun, learning, team building, and conservation experiences. Brett Horley Safaris is synonymous with ecotourism and conservation, offering guided, interactive group safari experiences that fully involve participants in nature. This is where we learn to identify animal tracks and scat; how to recognise bird calls; and how to find your way in the bush.
