    How would you like to travel?

    Whether you're looking for a family safari with kids, a solo adventure to celebrate all you've accomplished this year, or you're travelling with your partner and looking for something a touch romantic, there's plenty of options to choose from.

    Vacation packages for every budget

    Christmas is known for being a wonderful time to make memories with friends and family - but it's also known as a time when prices for getaways skyrocket.

    How to make the most of christmas in Africa

    What you need to know

    • When should I book my tour?

      Travellers looking to book a Christmas safari would do well to book far in advance, as prices will only increase closer to departure time. However, you might snatch a last minute deal for Christmas & New Year's Eve.
    • Will there be a Christmas tree?

      Lodges usually put up a Christmas tree in their main building. However, don't expect a familiar evergreen tree! The tree at a Christmas safari will be a local, native tree decorated in the unique style of the lodge staff.
    • Will there be a traditional Christmas feast?

      There will usually be a special meal on Christmas day. Travellers will find a combination of familiar traditional Christmas dinners such as turkey and mashed potatoes, as well as traditional local dishes.
    • I'm travelling with children, will there be a Santa Claus?

      Santa Claus will make an appearance in certain safaris, but travellers with children anticipating a visit should double-check with their tour operator beforehand.
    • Should I really spend christmas in a safari park?

      Christmas in a safari park will always be an amazing adventure and the right thing for travellers who are looking to step outside of their comfort zone and create new memories and traditions.
