Bushtracks invites you to think outside the box this holiday season, and surprise your loved ones with an unforgettable gift: a safari to Africa’s top reserves on the date of your choice with all of the details handled by Africa experts.

More and more people are choosing to give lasting experiences over traditional presents, and an African safari is a sure-to-please gift that delights recipients of all ages: nothing dazzles quite like a close encounter with an elephant! Bushtracks has specialized in custom safaris for over 25 years with trusted safari camps throughout East and Southern Africa. We can design your safari gift around any date that you choose (perhaps to commemorate a special milestone, a birthday, anniversary, or graduation) and we can craft it for as few as two and up to ten or twenty or more guests, if you’re thinking about making it a grand family affair.

Many travelers are surprised to learn that custom safaris can actually be more affordable than others, because we pick camps that suit your travel style, and can make other adjustments in the overall trip to lower the cost.

So if someone in your life has always dreamed about seeing lions in the wild, photographing the wildebeest migration, or has simply always wanted to visit Africa, you can make 2018 a year they will never forget.

It’s easier than you think to make the arrangements. After a phone call to learn more about your interests, desired dates, and travel style, a Bushtracks expert will prepare a safari program for you and package it in a gift box with movies, books and more to inspire, inform, and delight your recipients. If you’re certain about dates, they can be set, otherwise you can gift the safari and use the holidays to pick a date that suits everyone’s schedules. Your safari gift box will arrive in time for holiday giving, and will ensure your new year begins with the excited anticipation of a great adventure. To get started, please call Bushtracks at 1-800-995-8689 by December 15.

In Our Travelers’ Words

“I’d decided to surprise my mom at Christmas with a safari – it’s been a lifelong dream of hers. So I worked with Bushtracks to put together a safari for just the two of us in Tanzania, and on Christmas my niece’s boyfriend dressed up as a lion and presented her with the descriptive itinerary. She was completely surprised, and the safari was an unforgettable experience to share with her.”
-Kyle Katz, son
“As a young girl my dream was to go to Africa. Last Christmas my son gave me my memorable trip to Tanzania in Africa and my dream came true. Kyle and I had our trip of a lifetime: a trip we will never forget. The African landscape is unbelievable, the animals in their own habitat breathtaking. The arrangements made by Bushtracks were outstanding.”
-Ann Katz, mother
