By combining a safari with a range of activities - from climbing Mount Kenya, to scuba-diving, mountain biking and kitesurfing - we create a true adventure holiday.

We arrange safaris and beach holidays to the following destinations: Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and the Indian Ocean Islands of Lamu, Zanzibar, Mauritius and the Maldives.

Most of our trips include a safari - after all, you can hardly come to Africa without going on safari!  The type of safari you chose is up to you. From traditional safaris staying in exclusive tented camps, to walking safaris, horseback safaris, mountain bike safaris or even camel safaris.

After your safari we whisk you away to an Indian Ocean paradise - be it on the Kenya Coast, Lamu, Zanzibar, Mauritius or the Maldives.

Our sister company - The Luxury Surf Travel Company - offer a range of luxury and boutique hotels on or close to some of the World's best surf, windsurf and kitesurf beaches.

We cater for couples (especially 'active honeymooners'), small groups and families.

Tailor-made trips 

We design your Extreme Safari according to your budget and interests and provide expert advice guaranteeing an unforgettable experience. 

With the assistance of our partner travel agency, we arrange everything from flights and accommodation to activities.

Our website contains full details of destinations and activities.  Once you have an idea of the kind of holiday you want, please contact us and we will help you build your Extreme Safari.

We also have sample trips if you need inspiration and we guarantee that our prices are less or at least equivalent than going direct to the owner or operator!

How much can I expect to pay?

All of our trips are tailor made.  However as a guide, Extreme Safari holidays range between £1,000 to £3,500 per person. 

£2,000 is the average spend.  This would typically include domestic flights, a 3 day safari at a luxury tented camp in the Masai Mara, an activity such as kitesurfing or white-water rafting, 7 nights' accommodation at the Sands at Nomad in Kenya or similar, as well as airport transfers.  Of course costs will vary according to the time of year, number of days on safari, level of camp/hotel/lodge, and the type of activities you want to do.  Indian Ocean island extensions can be added at extra cost.

International Flights are not included in our packages.

The Sunday Times (June 2012) reporter Stephen Bleach whilst on an Extreme Safari organised Mountain Bike Safari at Borana Lodge, Laikipia. 'It was magical. We rode into the heart of the Zebra herd, which parted for us like a shoal of fish. We were surrounded by a chaos of crossing stripes: the markings are custom designed by evolution to baffle predators trying to pick out an individual to target, and I could feel them doing their job as the shifting, hypnotic patterns made my head throb.' 2 nights full board at Borana including return flights from Nairobi, day and night game drives, mountain biking, horse riding, game walks, all drinks and conservancy fees start from £1,075 per person.
