From the unspoiled national reserve in the Maasai Mara and the pristine beaches of Zanzibar to the untouched mystique of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in southern Uganda and the annual migration of wildebeest across the Serengeti National Park, East Africa is the world’s premier safari destination.

Visitors with individual requests can choose from numerous design options to build bespoke safari experiences, making Bushtrek Safaris perfect for ushering travellers into one of the world’s wildest frontiers.

Conserving the integrity of the environment and preserving the heritage of the communities is at the heart of every journey. Relying on a strong presence in the region and a dedicated team of professional country product managers, drivers — who are guides, naturalists and hosts — can help with the planning and execution of an unforgettable adventure. Visitors can choose from a variety of classic pre-prepared itineraries, ranging from activity-based excursions to destination-led trips.

The options for exploring the region are as thrilling as they are varied, including balloon safaris over the savannah at dawn with a champagne breakfast; road excursions aboard custom safari vehicles for comfortable and secure game-spotting; thrilling river treks on foot; and moonlit game drives.

When not exploring the wilderness, visitors can practise yoga in the savannah, experience romantic bush dinners or join a naturalist masseur on a herb-picking outing. Itineraries can also be tailored to document conservation efforts, ranging from the protection of wild animals in the Maasai Mara to the rehabilitation of rescued rhinos and elephants in Nairobi.

Every itinerary is put together with a cultural sensitivity gained from more than 60 years of working within small villages, interacting with individual tribes and appreciating their cultural nuances. As a result, the products and services Bushtrek Safaris offers are designed to conserve the integrity of the environment and preserve the heritage of the communities.
