Group Safari Experiences
Brett Horley Safaris is synonymous with ecotourism and conservation, offering 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; how to find your way in the bush; find constellations in the night sky; and make fires without matches!
These programs are totally flexible, tailor-made to suit specific interest groups, and guided by Brett with the assistance of subject experts along the way. The programs call on leaders in specific fields of research, conservation, and veterinary science. If you want fun, learning, team building, and conservation experience – if you want to touch ‘safari’ – get in touch, and we can begin building the perfect programme.
BHS group safaris are perfectly suited to college groups, schools, business colleagues, friends, or anyone looking to be educated and inspired. This is an ideal introduction to conservation in South Africa set in two magnificent private nature reserves in the heart of the famous Kruger National Park.

This is an experiential safari itinerary. Hands-on and in-depth, it is both educational and a whole lot of adventure and fun.

“The Student African Conservation Experience in the Greater Kruger has been a truly life changing experience for all involved. It was a week filled with passion, enthusiasm and excitement. The programme for the trip was exceptional. Including lectures by experts on Ground Hornbills, Elephants and Snakes, darting and micro-chipping the endangered White Rhino with one of the country’s very best Wildlife Vets, immersing ourselves in local culture and lifestyle.
Frogging, walking and spotlighting! A week in which we really focused on the conservation of wildlife and eco-systems, not only in Africa but also throughout the world. A Safari adventure with a real educational and experiential dimension. We hope that all went away with a deeper understanding and appreciation for wildlife and the natural world. We had loads of fun and at the same time, learnt so much. We leave as the future pioneers of conservation and wildlife management on our planet.”
