Indigo Safaris are experts in bespoke and group travel in Africa. We know every place that we sell, having lived in South Africa, Zanzibar, and Tanzania, and having travelled extensively in the other countries that we promote. We only work with the best, tried and tested local suppliers, and sell at the same rate as if you contacted them directly. We spend a lot of time visiting our suppliers to make sure delivery standards are maintained and to find new locations for your adventures. Please don't send us an enquiry for a tailor-made tour that has been sent to you by another agent with requests for specific lodges or camps. To ensure maximum client satisfaction, we only use select, hand-picked in each budget range, and there are quite a few properties commonly used by mass market agents that we don't like very much and won't send clients to. If you would like to stay in the best value-for-money places in each price range, by all means send us a quote request.
Easy communication and fantastic experiences
The trip was great! It was a really good experience and I really enjoyed all aspects of the trip. The guide, Tulimo, was fantastic and I couldn’t recommend him enough. There were only two other guests on the tour, but he made sure that it was always a lot of fun, and had a lot of interesting knowledge. The accommodation was also all fantastic, no complaints at all in that regard. The Hoada Campsite on Day 5 was switched for another one, but the switched camp site was probably the best of them all! All the experiences were highly enjoyable. I particularly enjoyed climbing the dunes in the desert. In Swakopmund I did both the skydiving and sand boarding, which were a lot of fun, (but cost extra, although very worth it!). Overall though, it was a fantastic trip and very good value for money too. Thank you very much for organising it! I even got home in time to avoid the hotel quarantine, which caused a lot of stress!
Best experience of my life
My boyfriend and I chose the 4 day Selous Safari and we couldn't have had better. The whole experience was mindblowing, we saw so many animals: lions, monkeys, impalas, elephants, giraffes and so many more! The lodge was super cute and very comfortable, the food was delicious and our hosts made us feel at home. I highly recommend Safari Bookings for unforgettable moments and unique activities
Well, where should I begin? We booked with Ines from Indigo Safaris. She did a great job and as some things didn’t work out at first step, she solved it out of her own holiday very quickly so we could enjoy every minute of our stay.
We had an incredible 8 night camping Safari, starting with 2 nights in Kasane, one night camping at chobe river front, followed by 2 nights camping in savuti and 2 nights camping in khwai before heading to Maun for one last night at the backpacker. The camp sites were wonderful, especially the one in khwai right next to the river, where a tall elephant came to the camp to great us. We have seen so many animals ( jackals, hyenas, leopard, wild cat, honey badger, hippos, Buffalo, giraffe….) in savuti we found even a pride of 15 Lions and followed them to the waterhole watching them drinking water and relaxing for a long time. The whole trip was great, the tents and bedding comfortable, the car spacious. But best of all was the crew. Joseph, our guide was unbelievable in reading body language of the animals and found so many interesting animals for us. He always gave lots of information about what we just saw - as well as about animals as vegetation. At the camp fire he was telling interesting stories about everything. We enjoyed every minute with him. Team-members were also Prince and System, travelling with a second car with the tents and kitchen stuff - always a bit ahead so everything was prepared when we arrived after the Safari at the camp. Prince the Chef - what he did over camp fire I can‘t do at home in this quality. Pizza, bread, spaghetti, meat, salad - everything was delicious! They got up really early in the morning to prepare breakfast and even the salads for lunch when we had whole day trips. Don’t know when they found time to sleep. System took care of everything at the camp and the atmosphere between all of them was so good, we felt really comfortable.
Spending the nights in a tent in the wilderness, hearing all the different sound was so exiting! For us, it was the best experience ever. The only bad thing, we only booked those 8 nights - it should have been much longer! So if you get the chance to go to Botswana doing a Safari, choose a camping one and try to get such a great team as we had. Thanx Joseph, Prince and System for this wonderful journey!
Thank you !
The camp was incredible and the people were very kind.
Matthew from Indigo safari was extremely responsive, thanks again!
The only drawback was the "walking safari" which was not a safari but a walk in the forest with a guide, although nice and being a source of knowledge, made a "show" reserved for tourists (or children) which did not particularly please us (nor the people present that day...) ... But it is quickly forgotten because everything else was perfect!
Great bespoke itinerary that was proposed, discussed and booked by Very knowledgeable Ines, Indigo.
3 weeks in Tanzania including safari and time on the coast on Pemba and Zanzibar. Ines really worked well with us suggesting a great trip outline that we then talked through and tweaked so that it worked best for our family. She knew the area well and was able to make great suggestions about specific places to stay or trips to make that would be most relevant for us. All the logistics and coordination worked well and I have no qualms about the price paid which I thought was fair under the circumstances, especially given all the uncertainty and modifications that came from CVD.
I would highly recommend to others.
