It’s hard to beat the experience of a safari; the thrill of being immersed in nature, the diversity of the flora and fauna, the excitement of spotting wildlife in their natural habitat, and the joy of an evening sundowner in a luxury tented lodge. As well as game drives, new luxury safari options such as private helicopter safaris, horseback safaris, kayaking safaris and night safaris are all available. Having lived in and explored this vast continent first hand, Lightfoot Travel’s experts can create a customised luxury safari holiday just for you.
Comprising deserts and wetlands, savannahs and salt pans, great rivers and rainforests, Africa is a diverse destination blessed with a fascinating animal kingdom. Experience the world-famous elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros of Kenya’s Maasi Mara; watch in awe as 1.5 million wildebeest and over 250,000 zebra embark on Tanzania’s Serengeti during the largest land migration on earth; or quad bike through the Makgadikgadi Pans in Botswana in search of elephants and rhinos.
Leave Africa behind and hang out with orangutans and proboscis monkeys on a jungle safari in Borneo. Meanwhile, marine safaris around Sipadan open up a world of underwater life - think turtles, barracudas and reef sharks. Equally as impressive are the Galapagos Islands, where a diving safari introduces you to Galapagos sharks, schools of hammerhead sharks, and beaches populated by reclining sea lions, giant tortoises, and rare penguins.The Indian Subcontinent also boasts unique safaris of its own, with wild tigers roaming the Bandhavgarh national park in India and leopards at Yala National Park in Sri Lanka.Read more...

This former SAS soldier was the first person to cross Antarctica by foot and visit both the North and South Poles by surface means. So with more than 45 years of exploration under his belt we thought it only fair that his fellow adventurers had the chance to ask him some questions…
