To Africa and beyond, these are the best safari destinations worldwide for luxury travel, breath-taking wildlife encounters and photography.

Panthera Safari Destinations

We take you to the places in Africa where lush mountain ranges are home to the Great Apes, and vast grasslands are heavy under the weight of migrating wildlife trailed by powerful predators. The shimmering coastlines are bustling with Afro-fusion aromatics and the reefs are colourful with fish. The continent is melting pot of dramatically different landscapes and the world’s most sought after wildlife species and safari destinations.


Beyond these borders are pockets of breath-taking tropical jungles, wetlands, mountains and rivers. Not only are we equipped to bring you the best of Africa’s wild places, but our knowledge and experience can take you to safari destinations around the world. Photograph jaguars in the Pantanal, make a pilgrimage to Machu Picchu, or chance spotting the black panthers of Kabini.
