Like all great things, Sunway Safaris started from humble beginnings and has grown through experience and passion to be a leading small group adventure travel company in Southern Africa. Today we are running more than 300 safaris each year on 21 different routes in 10 countries. We have a fleet of custom built safari trucks, offices in both South Africa and Botswana, and are a dynamic, growing company with over 60 employees, all as enthusiastic and passionate about Africa as we are.

We operate safaris for the adventurous and young at heart, specializing in small group (max 12 clients) accommodated and camping tours throughout Southern Africa. We strive to offer travel experiences full of adventure, incredible wildlife, scenic beauty and cultural interaction.  Our tours are lead by two qualified guides to ensure attention to detail and that we provide you with a unique experience whether you are a first time traveller or veteran explorer. The Sunway team looks forward to welcoming you to Africa and making your holiday one that ensures that Africa leaves her footprint in your heart and with adventures that you will talk about for years to come.

With 4 different styles of travel, there is something for everyone, choose your next adventure.

WE BRING YOU CLOSER TO AFRICA
Sunway aims to provide an authentic African experience that provide contrasting experiences in various landscapes, enable you to experience the bush and its sounds at night while preparing a “home cooked” meal and that encourage interaction between people in the group who are usually from a wide range of countries.

SMALL & PERSONALISED GROUPS
Being part of a small group of a maximum of 12 people means you are not part of the herd but rather an important client. This has been a key factor in our continued success. Small groups’ means no wasted time waiting for a large group to get moving and you have a better quality time with our guides.

TRAVELLING IN AFRICA – BRING A SENSE OF ADVENTURE!
To travel in Africa and enjoy it you need a relaxed attitude. The clock in Africa runs much more slowly than in your own country and sometimes even stops! Things happen that you may not expect, so flexibility, patience and a sense of humour are essential. Although we prepare the trips carefully and due to the nature of the tour we are sometimes forced to make occasional adjustments to the route. There are some long travelling days, some short ones and at the most interesting places, a few nights at the same camp to allow us to explore the area.
