Escorted Safari Tours

Translated into English, the ancient Arabic word safari means 'journey', but for the modern traveller a safari tour represents so much more; it is an exciting excursion into a natural world - whether rainforest, savannah, mountains or ocean - which offers the chance to observe some of the world's most spectacular, exotic and rare wildlife.

Great Rail Journeys offers a selection of unforgettable safari tours, featuring something to please and excite every avid wildlife buff. Whether your safari dream is to spot the legendary 'big five' (the lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros) on a classic safari in South Africa's beautiful Kruger National Park or to seek out the elusive tiger amid the woodlands and open plains of Ranthambore National Park in India, you're guaranteed the wildlife adventure of a lifetime.

A safari tour with Great Rail Journeys means, of course, that not only will you have the opportunity to see an astounding diversity of birds and animals in their natural habitat but also that you'll travel on some of the most iconic and scenic railways in the world. And, of course, you'll be in the safe hands of one of Great Rail's friendly and knowledgeable Tour Managers who will help to ensure that you enjoy the best possible safari tour with us.

Safari tours with Great Rail Journeys offer varied itineraries which provide plenty of free time to explore destinations at your own pace, choose your own preferred activities or simply to relax and enjoy your tour.

When not tracking down big game on our Cape Town, The Blue Train & Kruger trip, you might optionally choose to take an unforgettable hot-air balloon ride over the Kruger National Park to gain an entirely different and stunning perspective of South Africa's most famous safari tour destination. A safari tour with Great Rail Journeys offers so many wonderful sights, activities, experiences and options that you're sure to find the perfect itinerary for your ultimate once-in-a-lifetime safari adventure.
