On Track Safaris

“Wildlife Safari Specialists”

We specialise in wildlife conservation safaris to Africa in support of wildlife conservation. We prefer small groups of less then six persons. This means that we can offer a personal service and flexibility to cater for any specific requirements and needs that you may have. Whether your preference is just general wildlife or something specific, or if you would like to visit one of our community projects, be hands on or sit back and let us take the strain, whatever you prefer we'll do our best to provide. Everyone hopes to see the infamous big five when on Safari (Rhino, Elephant, Lion, Leopard and Buffalo), and of-course soak up the atmosphere, sights and sounds of Africa. We aim to provide all those things (mother nature permitting), but more than that, we want you to gain an insight into the real African bush. For example, to understand what a Leopard track looks like and how it is just like a finger print, or what the barking noise you heard during the night meant (alarm call of a bush buck, who knows a predator is around), or what that smell of pop corn means as you pass a bush (female leopard in oestrous). And even more, we provide opportunities for you to be involved with our work in conservation and particularly with Leopards. Meet and be involved with conservationists, help to set trail cameras to monitor the nightly happenings, or just simply take time to sit viewing an Elephant understanding its behaviour and the heard dynamics. Of-course a safari wouldn't be a safari without enjoying the quality accommodation and fantastic venues, that are included in each of our tours. We will be waiting for you on arrival at Johannesburg airport, we don't use a third party transit service, you will be met by one of our safari team and your safari starts then. Don't worry about the time of your arrival, we will meet you at any time or date to suit you, it's all part of the service. This gives you flexibility to find the best flight deal. We know that its important to be able to plan your safari costs and avoid any hidden extras. Quite simply, we don't believe in hidden extras, where possible we provide an all inclusive price and any additions to that one off price are clearly shown on your itinerary. These tend to be things that are out of our control such as the entry fee into the Kruger National Park which you pay directly on entry, and we can let you know those costs before you arrive. Let us know what you want from your Safari and together we can make your time with us an experience that will provide memories to last a lifetime.

An outstanding Indian safari

This was our first safari with On Track Safaris having met Will at the Destinations Travel show. We chose India as we hoped to see tigers and had already completed many safaris in southern Africa. We visited 3 parks in India (Bandhavgarh, Kanha and Pench) with 5 game drives in each during March 2018. The logistics of being picked up at the airport and transported to hotels or the parks worked flawlessly despite significant international flight changes due to bad weather in Europe. The park lodges were outstanding and the food particularly in Pench was superb. At each of the game parks the guides asked us what our interests were (we're not keen bird spotters) and adjusted the drive accordingly. The guides discussed with us their proposal for each drive enabling us to fine tune as necessary. During the drive we were regularly consulted as to whether to stay in an area or move on. The guides were very knowledgeable and provided a wide variety of information as we waited in hope. In Pench whilst driving to the park through the buffer area we had two great wildlife viewings and the guide was wiling to halt and let us enjoy them rather than rushing onwards. We had magnificent tiger sightings in Bandhavgarh but were unlucky in the other two parks.However we did see sloth bear and leopard amongst other animals in these parks. Overall an excellent trip and outstanding value for money so much so we've booked with On Track Safaris for a trip to Uganda.
A well balanced and thought out Safari holiday

We'd been on Safari before in Kenya, so knew that we wanted to maximise our time out and about and had some idea what to expect. We chose the 9 night / 10 days safari - three lodges, all different and a seamless set of transfers and logistics. The Lodges were well chosen and had different advantages, the people we met were, without exception, enthusiastic & knowledgeable and listened to what we wanted to achieve and worked with us to achieve it. We enjoyed the conservation aspects of the holiday and this was handled very well - good to be around people who cared about the habitat and the wildlife. Overall - highly recommended.
Every Day A New Adventure

Recently I had my second trip to Africa, and this one was by far the best. Everything arranged by On Track Safaris happened smoothly and seamlessly. Now I have a full appreciation of why my friend loves South Africa, and why she entrusts her schedule to Carol Fox, South Africa is a beautiful country, and if I ever have an opportunity to visit again, I would not hesitate to put myself in the capable hands of On Track Safaris, and then relax.
