African Safaris with Taga Safaris Africa

Safari in Africa

with the Safari Pioneers (since 1994) who Live in Africa

African Safaris for over 25 Years

Check out the following Safaris and Tours to Southern and East Africa

Taga Safaris is a South African based tour operator specializing in creating tailormade tours, African safaris and exclusive adventure travel and vacations to South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda and the Indian Ocean Islands.

We know that an African safari should take you back in time to the Africa of old. Forget big lodges with crowds of people, or large game parks and reserves without privacy. They are not for travelers who want to capture the African heart and soul. All of the camps, lodges and reserves that we visit cater for the discerning traveller and are small, private and exclusive which will give you an un-forgettable experience of a lifetime.

Our goal is to provide African safaris or tours where wonderful experiences and great African game viewing can take place in unspoiled, unmanaged, natural habitats. Having lived in Africa all our lives and being extremely passionate about its wildlife we have been traveling in Africa since 1965 and this has enriched us with an unsurpassed wealth of experience and knowledge about its secret places, its people and its wildlife.

Choose from a variety of options from high end luxury to budget. We can also Tailormake any Safari and Tour to your liking.

We were in constant communication throughout the whole trip and the agency was very supportive and tried to make it happen every request we had.

Effortless

★★★★★

When I started looking in to safaris for my honeymoon I had no idea which, of the hundreds, would be best. Mark at Taga helped me navigate all the different camps and lodges and quickly replied to every email I sent making us feel happy and secure with our choice.

Predator and Prey!

★★★★★
5 5 1
Thanks Mark, Taga Safaris Africa connected us with Africa on Foot. We spent three nights with delightful drives and walks. Perhaps the best summary: Predator and Prey! We saw leopards stalking impala, wild dogs chasing impala, hyenas feeding on impala and giraffe, and lions feeding on zebra. Gotta appreciate the life of predators and prey. As to communication and service, when some of our flights were delayed, Mark kept everyone informed and our transfer from the airport worked out without a hitch, despite the flight delays. Much appreciated from our end.

Africa is enormous and diverse, which means that the experiences we offer vary tremendously, from country to country and region to region. The wilderness introduces you to every aspect of Africa: from relaxing in camp and dining in the bush to observing nature unfold in the African wild or getting to know the staff, their heritage and culture.

With knowledgeable and passionate guides, and limited guests on our vehicles (everyone is assured of a ‘window’ seat), game viewing on our private concessions is guaranteed to be as informative as it is enthralling. Your guide will also ensure you are optimally positioned for the best photographic opportunities at every sighting.

Culture is defined as the customary beliefs, social forms and material traits of a social group. In the communities with which we work in Africa, our cultural tourism aims to promote respectful interaction in an authentic and educational manner.

Africa straddles the equator which bestows a rich diversity of wildlife and landscapes on the world’s second largest continent. Large predators roam the sweeping savannas among huge herds of grazing herbivores, while apes, monkeys and snakes inhabit its dark, dense forests. Widely regarded as the place where human life originated, Africa is home to many of the world’s best loved and most fascinating animals, as well as to some of its most endangered.

Mountain gorillas are social and gregarious, intelligent and curious. Much like humans, in fact, which means that encountering them can be a profoundly moving experience. Mountain gorilla live in distinct groups led by one or more adult male silverbacks. Volcanoes National Park has 12 habituated gorilla groups.

The private concessions in Africa’s most pristine wildlife areas offer seclusion, comfort, privacy and space, far exceeding experiences in public access national parks. These areas cover many habitats, thus allowing for an incredibly diverse, personalised journey, whether in the savannah, the rainforest, the desert or the ocean.

Wherever possible, we offer visits to local villages and various cultural and educational experiences in the communities adjacent to the wild areas in which we operate. This holistic experience relates to learning about and awareness of different cultures and their traditions. Educational visits include a visit to a local school where guests may interact with young students and their teachers and learn about school life in Africa.
