Planning your African Safari
An African safari is a true adventure — a journey crafted in the tradition of wealthy 13th-century traders who first hunted the plains of Africa for wild game trophies to hang on their walls. Today travelers hunt for photo opportunities instead of occasions to kill, but they encounter the same scenes that have fascinated explorers throughout history: thousands of zebras migrating across emerald grasslands, flocks of florescent flamingos creating a field of color across a shining lake, lions feasting on a hard-earned kill.
If an African safari is on your bucket list, you can book it yourself online or over the phone. Crucial tours offers both tours and safaris to different places in Africa. Watch cheetahs dart across the seemingly endless expanse of the Serengeti. Get a look into the lives of gorillas in the forests of Uganda. Snorkel in the warm waters of the Indian ocean in Zanzibar, and learn about the various tribes and peoples of Africa at a local heritage center during your trip. Before you book your safari to the region, read up on the area and safari trips to choose the best trip for your interests. Whether you’re planning a month-long, multiple-country safari, or a simple, comfortable night in a hand-picked hotel, we’ll take care of you.

Pre- departure service
Once final payment has been made, we will send you all relevant vouchers and pre-departure guides. We will check-in with you a couple of days before you arrive in Africa just to make 100% sure all is in order.
