Up close to the most extraordinary wildlife

Book one of our unforgettable safari trips and explore unspoilt landscapes and encounter wild animals in their natural habitat.

Our safari itineraries provide the most incredible combination of scenery, wildlife and culture. We specialise in helping you plan bespoke, authentic tours on which you will experience the thrill of a game drive, exceptional wildlife sightings and even visit local communities - creating memories to be remembered forever.

For most a safari is a once-in-a-lifetime trip, for others the experience and the continent itself becomes a lifelong passion. Our aim is to ensure that your Carrier Travel safari holiday will exceed your expectations. 

Choose a private safari with your own vehicle and guide, allowing you to explore the bushveld at your own pace, and ensuring the best view of the animals. Alternatively, you may prefer a group safari where you can meet new friends to share your experiences with. If you book a family safari, we can recommend the most exciting safari tours for children, where you can marvel at the exhilaration on their faces as they see their first lion and learn how to track meerkats through the bush. You can also select to stay in luxury lodges or camp in tents, whichever suits you best.

The guides and drivers that Carrier Travel select to accompany you on your safari are world-class experts. They draw on their local knowledge to provide real insights into the animal behaviours and answer any questions you may have, so that you get the most out of your holiday.

Expert’s Choice

We offer a variety of magical safari experiences for you to choose from. Wake to the sights and sounds of elephants taking a morning drink from the waterhole outside your tent in Madikwe Game Reserve, take a drive in the Kruger National Park and spot lions tending their cubs or climb the mist-enveloped moutains in Rwanda to witness gorillas in their natural habitat. For your honeymoon, enjoy a helicopter safari in Botswana or a take your family on an adventurous safari in Kenya; you can even experience The Great Migration, the greatest wildlife show on Earth where thousands of wildebeest and zebras cross the Mara river in Kenya.

If safaris are your passion, then you may wish to consider somewhere other than Africa. Experience a thrilling dune safari in the Middle East, a bird watching safari in Costa Rica, track tigers in India or take a cycling safari through France. Our safaris are designed to suit anyone.

"I recently went on a safari to the Masai Mara in Kenya that was organised by Carrier Travel in Alderley Edge. 

This was my third safari experience and the most enjoyable, staying at one of the Governors camps that Carrier recommended. The accommodation was immaculately clean and beautiful. The staff were local people, which meant they were knowledgeable as well as friendly. I felt so welcome and safe, which as a single traveller is most important. Carrier Travel organised the activities and experiences that suited my needs.”
