Our guided group tours are expertly designed for travellers who want to see the highlights of a country, or even multiple countries, with a group of like-minded people. Because they leave on set departure dates, these safaris are designed to make the most of the ideal game-viewing seasons and have the added benefit of often being much more affordable than a tailor-made tour. Of course, they are led by an expert guide who brings his or her superior knowledge, unique know-how, and charm along to make sure that the trip is like no other. Jenman African Safaris have been offering guided group tours in Africa for 21 years and our experience and constant striving to be the best tour operator means we’ve left no stone unturned when it comes to providing an unforgettable safari holiday.
Africa is a unique destination with unique circumstances and requirements. Preparing for a trip to any of its countries can require quite a bit more planning and research than say Europe or Southeast Asia, but as African experts we are able to provide a perfectly curated experience that is built on years of good relationships with our suppliers and vendors and a constant assessment of what works and what doesn’t.
Besides the ultimate convenience of a guided group tour, where everything is arranged for our guests by expert hands, travellers have the opportunity to connect with other guests and have stimulating interactions while on their holiday. Guests already have something in common with their fellow travellers, a desire to discover the beauty of Africa and a love for nature and wildlife. This shared special interest is able to inspire meaningful conversations (around the fire at night) and build connections that can often last a lifetime. As much as couples and families enjoy their time together on holiday they do sometimes need a bit of a break from each other to keep the peace. A guided group tour is the perfect solution as guests can interact with each other as much or as little as they please while benefiting from the advantage of excellent value for money a guided group tour provides.
The saying that there’s safety in numbers can provide a sense of comfort in the vast open spaces of Africa. Guests on a guided group tour won’t ever have to deal with a broken down car in the middle of the Namibian desert with nightime fast approaching, water supplies running low and no idea of when the next car might come by and whether those people will be able to help them. Or lost in the bush, not sure whether they’re their holding their map upside down or the road they were following has been washed away by a flash flood. Of course the driver and the guide know the route like the back of their hands and there’s no chance of getting lost regardless of whether there’s cellphone signal or not.
Tours like World in One Country or our Intimate Botswana and Zimbabwe Encounter are just 2 excellent examples of the many guided group tours that we offer and they are a wonderful way for travellers to experience their first taste of Africa with the unique value and benefits of a guided group experience that we at Jenman African Safaris provide.
