Getting Started

We specialise in tailor made, high quality African safaris and tours for discerning travellers away from the crowds. You may be going on safari or tour to Africa for the first time and not know where to start, in which case we will spend as long as it takes to design an itinerary to suit your wishes. Or, if you are an experienced safari traveller looking for something different, we can advise you on new discoveries we have made through our own extensive travels. Even if you have only got a preliminary idea, we are very happy to talk to you at the earliest stage of planning.

We’ll ask questions about everyone travelling with you, and if there’s anything in particular you want to see or do. Our Planning Questionnaire is a document that has been specifically designed to aid us in 

 

When should I start planning?
Although we can put together a stunning last-minute safari in a matter of days, you’ll get a wider choice of accommodation if you can plan at least six months ahead. If you’re a larger group of friends or a family, give us as much time as possible, even a year or more.

 

How many countries should I visit?
This depends on the time you have available, your wishes and budget. We will often suggest combining two or even three countries. For example, gorilla tracking combines wonderfully with a classic big game safari in Kenya or Tanzania while the spectacular scenery and desert adapted species in Namibia mix perfectly with Botswana’s pristine wilderness.

 

How long is a typical safari?
Africa is vast – hopping from one country to another can take several hours or more – so it’s important to allow time to travel. Seven days on the ground would be the minimum we would suggest, ten days or more is ideal. We’ll make the best of your time by connecting contrasting areas with light aircraft flights, allowing you to see as much as possible without feeling rushed.

 

How do I prepare for my safari?
Once your holiday is confirmed, we will provide you with extensive pre-departure information which contains everything you need to know prior to your holiday. We’re always happy to help on the phone or over email, no matter how small a query may seem.

The Cape Discovered's services continues in Africa, where you’ll be met at every airport and greeted warmly at each camp and lodge.

 

Our 24-hour emergency contact number is available should you need help or advice during your holiday.

 

We love hearing about your travels and will be in touch on your return to find out how you have enjoyed your trip.
