Unique Africa Safaris Away From the Crowds

Africa Safaris Away From the Crowds

There are so many wonderful things to see and do in Africa, but if you’re looking for something unusual and adventurous to do on your next trip to Africa, consider a unique Africa safari tour away from the crowd. Here are some of my favorite destinations for this sort of adventure:

Go on a wilderness camping safari in Botswana.

A wilderness camping safari is a great way to get up close and personal with the African wilderness. It’s also an excellent way to see wildlife in their natural habitat, which is a treat for any nature lover. Plus, you’ll be able to get away from the crowds found on other safaris—and who doesn’t want some peace?

Visit the Kalahari Mine in Namibia.

The Kalahari Mine is a salt mine located in the Namib Desert. It’s a popular tourist attraction that has been operating since 1968, and it’s also used for many other purposes, such as food preservation and fertilizer production. When you visit this unique safari destination, you can explore the mine and learn about its history from managers or guides who will be happy to share their experiences with you.

The Kalahari Mine is famous for being one of only two places where tourists can see fossilized prehistoric animals preserved in rock formations like dinosaurs! Some visitors have reported seeing fossils such as triceratops, pterodactyls, saber-toothed cats, and mammoths!

Sample the homemade gin at Mhondoro Safari Lodge & Villa in South Africa.

If you’re looking for something a little more unique and off-the-beaten-path, Mhondoro Safari Lodge & Villa is the place to go. This lodge has a gin and tonic bar in South Africa specializing in homemade gin.

The gin is made from local ingredients such as lemon grass and coriander seeds. It’s named after the nearby river: the Mhondoro River! The name is quite fitting because it sounds like something would come out of an African forest rather than somewhere like England or Scotland, where most gins are made nowadays (and no offense intended).

Enjoy a game drive by horseback in Zambia.

Horseback safaris are the way to go if you’re looking for a slightly more intimate safari. You’ll be able to get closer (and safer) than ever before while still seeing wildlife in its natural environment.

You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on this experience either—it’s more affordable than most people think! You can also do it on foot or by bicycle, if you want something cheaper but still fun and exciting, instead of riding with your guide and their horse through the bush.

Explore the caves of Swaziland’s Lubombo Mountains.

The Lubombo Mountains are a range of mountains in Swaziland. They’re home to the world’s largest cave, the Mavuso Caves. These caves are located on the border between Swaziland and Mozambique so you can explore them from both countries!

The best way to visit this spectacular area is by vehicle or on foot (in which case you’ll need good shoes). You can rent a car at your hotel or book one through an agency like Eko Car Rentals if you’re arriving at Mbabane Airport as opposed to Fort Saint John Airport; otherwise, hop into one of their vans and take off on an adventure through these beautiful hills!

Visit Rwanda’s Golden monkeys.

Rwanda has a unique species of primate known as the golden monkey. They are found only in the Virunga Mountains’ forests and are named after their bright golden fur. The endangered species was driven to near-extinction by hunting, but thankfully protection efforts have increased in numbers over recent years.

Sleep under the stars at Cheli and Peacock’s Olduvai Camp, Tanzania.

This is it if you’re looking for a unique safari experience that will get you away from the crowds in style. The camp is located in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, so there are plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife while staying at Cheli & Peacock’s Olduvai Camp.

The camp boasts its private airstrip so guests can enjoy luxurious flights over this stunning region. And with a maximum capacity of 20 guests at any time, there’s no doubt about it: this is one of those camps where everyone will have their privacy guaranteed. The luxury camping experience includes all meals prepared by Cheli & Peacock’s chefs each day, and an array of activities such as trekking or game drives into the wilderness surrounding your site. Our guided tours include visits to local villages where people live off-grid without electricity or running water if you’d like something more active than just relaxing on your veranda watching lions hunt buffalo around sunrise each morning.

Kayak through the spectacular Sine Saloum Delta, Senegal.

If you’re looking for a unique safari that gets you away from the crowds in style, then kayaking through the spectacular Sine Saloum Delta, Senegal, may be right up your alley. Kayaking offers an excellent opportunity to see wildlife up close and personal while avoiding an overwhelming number of tourists who flock to this region each year. The area is also home to some beautiful scenery—it’s not uncommon for us to see humpback whales or dolphins swimming alongside our boats!

Track mountain gorillas in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

If you’re game for a little adventure, consider taking a night safari with your head torch for light. This experience allows you to follow the tracks of mountain gorillas as they make their way through the forest. You’ll hike through dense vegetation and climb steep slopes to get as close as possible without being spotted by wild animals or humans.

This is not a tour that you can plan—it requires some flexibility and spontaneity on your part—so it’s recommended that you book early so that all arrangements are made before arriving at the park gates.

Consider a safari tour

  • Safari by car: This is the most popular way to see African wildlife. You can go on a 10-day excursion through Botswana’s Okavango Delta with Nomad Tours or explore Zanzibar’s archipelago with Sailors of Savi for a five-day cruise around the islands.
  • Safari by boat: If an all-terrain vehicle isn’t quite cutting it for you, why not try this? The safari experience doesn’t end when you leave your car behind; instead of just watching from afar while they chase around those cute little antelope babies—you’ll get into the action yourself!
  • Safari by plane: It may sound like cheating, but there are some amazing views from above too! Travelers can enjoy aerial views over Kruger National Park (South Africa) and Namibia’s Skeleton Coast Region by flying over these areas on small propeller aircraft or wide-bodied jets.


Africa is a fascinating and beautiful place to visit, but it cannot be easy to find the time and money for such an adventure. Luckily, there are plenty of opportunities to explore on a budget! Here are some great suggestions for affordable trips:
