Cultural safaris, Where do our cultural safaris take you?

Experiences

Cultural safaris

While Africa’s wildlife often takes center stage, her fascinating cultural heritage is as impressive and diverse as its natural one. For many of our safari guests, the chance to engage with Africa's people is both uplifting and humbling. For many, when reflecting back on their trip, these interactions are often what they look back on most fondly as the most significant element of their time spent in Africa.

The benefits of cultural itineraries work both ways. Socially responsible tourism can have very real benefits for communities, offering employment and other socio-economic opportunities which might otherwise not exist. Furthermore, when a community benefits directly from safari tourism, its members often become the most passionate protectors of wildlife and the environment.

Where do our cultural safaris take you?

Many of our itineraries organically include cultural interactions with local groups, communities, and tribespeople. Between game drives and other safari activities, there are opportunities to meet some of Africa’s indigenous groups. You can experience firsthand the culture of the Masai and Samburu in Kenya, the red-hued Himba of Namibia, the Hadzabe hunter-gatherers of northern Tanzania, and the desert-adapted San of the Kalahari. These frank encounters help many guests to appreciate the unaffectedness of these ancient cultures and offer humbling insights into the huge challenges faced by so many people living in remote and often impoverished parts of Africa.
