Authentic Safari
An authentic African safari will take you back in time, awaken your senses, feed your soul and reconnect you with nature. We take you deep into the bush to experience the solitude, sights and sounds of the wilderness.

Authentic Safari

In the words of Hemingway, 'I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up that I was not happy.'

There's nothing like being in real Africa on an authentic safari! Classic Escapes take you on 'off the beaten track safaris', deep into the heart of Africa, to wild and inaccessible places.

Our authentic safaris are known for their exceptional wildlife encounters, experienced guides and remote locations. We take the time to understand what your safari dreams entail and craft a custom itinerary to fulfil your needs. Our focus is on selecting only the highest quality and most intimate tented camps, and we ensure an experience that puts our clients first, in the African wilderness.

The camps are luxurious with top guides, exclusive amenities and home comforts that will exceed your expectations. Some of our hand picked favourites are Tanda Tula Safari Camp, an East African styled, luxury tented camp in the Timbavati; Machaba Camp situated in the game-rich Khwai area in the north eastern Okavango and the Legendary Serengeti Camp in Tanzania.

African adventure by day and star studded romance by night … let us take you there!
