Safari styles

created for you


Everything we do at Bespoke Safaris is about your experience.
Here are a few of our clients’ favourite safari styles.


One of the best ways to enjoy East Africa is to take advantage of the comprehensive, reliable network of internal scheduled flight services operating between all major towns, cities and the national parks and reserves.

For the ultimate in convenience, a wide range of aircraft are available for private charters. Your own personal aircraft offers accessibility to those airstrips not serviced by standard flights, with total flexibility with timing and routing. Many of the smaller camps, lodges and boutique hotels offered to our tailor-made clients are ‘off the beaten track’, and it is only practically possible to fly to some of these remote destinations. For these itineraries we only use the most experienced pilots and the very best equipped aircraft.

Explore unchartered wilderness areas. Visit remote tribes that have very little contact with the western world. Trailblaze your own journey on our helicopter safaris to one of these rare destinations.

Custom tailor-made safaris

Organizing a customized, tailor-made safari is primarily about knowledge of the product, the wilderness areas, logistical organization and the ability to meet specific client expectations.

Bespoke Safaris has extensive first-hand knowledge of Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania. These safaris offer a myriad of tailor-made opportunities from chimpanzee treks in Tanzania and horse riding in Laikipia to big game fishing on the Indian Ocean and gorilla treks in Rwanda.

Our information and travel advice is reliable, accurate and unbiased to tailor the experience to meet each individual’s requirements and budgets.

Given the wide diversity of landscapes from mountain forests and dry deserts to fast flowing rivers and serene alpine lakes and calm oceans, sporting and adventure activities are easily integrated into a safari itinerary.

Horse riding and camel trekking safaris can be planned in some of the more undisturbed destinations where you can roam freely amongst wildlife and dramatic scenery. Or if you prefer golfing, fishing or water sports including water skiing and sailing, you can indulge in the Great Rift Valley Lakes or nearby ocean waters.

For those wishing to have an up-close experience with Kenya’s wildlife, walking and trekking safaris accompanied by an armed professional guide allows you to share many of nature’s mysteries and secrets first hand.

Walking, riding,
activity & adventure

Family safaris

Child-friendly itineraries are easily organized. They can include lodges and camps with pools, riding, water sports, mountain biking, trekking and a host of adventure activities to keep your children happy and plenty occupied.

Apart from Africa’s spectacular wildlife, there’s much more to see and enjoy in the bush. Learn the tracks and signs with a Masai/Samburu warrior and discover how the local tribes sustain their livelihood in terrain that appears extremely difficult to outsiders.

Children over five will love the bush and find plenty to do and see when they are not searching for animals. For families of four or more, we’d recommend you book exclusive use of your own vehicle.

East Africa’s Indian Ocean coast is characterized by miles of uncrowded palm-fringed beaches, coral reefs and clear blue water teeming with marine life.

From the historic island of Lamu with its chic boutique hotels and villas, past Malindi and Watamu beaches, down to Diani Beach on the beautiful south coast and just down the coast to the exotic, sun-kissed spice island of Zanzibar, one can find exquisite barefoot luxury honeymoon hideaways and romantic islands to appease the most discerning travellers. Further south are the virtually untouched ‘Robinson Crusoe’ islands of Northern Mozambique. Sprinkled throughout the Qurimbas archipelago are several stunning lodges famed for scuba diving, big game fishing and simply getting away from it all.

Thrill seekers can indulge in kite surfing, waterskiing, windsurfing,deep sea diving on coral reefs, snorkeling with Dolphins and Whale Sharks and some of the best big game fishing in the world.
