Classic Safari
Where will your wanderlust take you?
Say hello to our 2019 travel guide

At The Classic Safari Company we are always looking ahead with wanderlust! As it’s the time of year for gift giving, here is our gift to you – a calendar of where to go when in 2019.

Whether your dream is to take your own tribe on a safari through Africa, sign up for a gourmet food safari or join one of our Secret Women’s Series journeys, we’ve got you covered! From tracking bongo in the Congo to cruising the Amazon or the Antarctic,  if you’re still searching for that perfect gift we’ve got plenty of ideas all wrapped up (pardon the pun!). Read on for our guide to the best time to take your loved ones snorkelling with sea lions in the Galapagos, watching the solar eclipse in the Atacama or hiking the Andes in Peru, remembering that every season has its own unique appeal and we’re here to guide you through the lot.

We send you season’s greetings and wish you a happy and adventure-filled new year. The world is your oyster in 2019!

A ‘must do’ once in your lifetime! January is the time to visit the coldest, highest, driest & remotest continent on earth. Long summer daylight hours, navigable ice & newly hatched penguin chicks await.
From ancient imperial cities to the sands of the Sahara, across the High Atlas Mountains to the shores of the Atlantic coastline, Morocco offers something for everyone and February is an ideal time to visit.
Harvest time in Argentina's wine regions culminates in March with the jubliant National Grape Festival. Mendoza is the ultimate destination of choice for foodies and wine connoisseurs alike.

Don’t miss the opportunity to explore Peru with uber stylish, interior designer Megan Morton as your host on this one-off Secret Women’s Series journey. Departs 26 April 2019.
Galapagos Islands
Whilst the Galapagos is a year-round destination, the weather in May is divine! Blue-footed boobies begin their courtship, green turtles are hatching and the waved albatross comes to town.
Days are warm, nights are cool and rising floodwaters filter through the delta. Boating, 4x4 driving and horse riding are all on the cards and wildlife sightings are at their peak.

Atacama Desert, Chile
On the afternoon of 2 July 2019 a full solar eclipse will occur directly over Chile. Experience this celestial wonder surrounded by the Atacama desert’s arresting, lunar landscape. A truly stellar experience!
Republic of Congo
Venture into the equatorial forests of the Republic of Congo in one of the driest, coolest months to see rare and endangered species inlcuding western lowland gorillas, forest elephant and bongo.
Maasai Mara, Kenya
The great migration reaches its peak on the plains of the Maasai Mara and heart-in-mouth river crossings and pumping predator activity are the order of the day. Witness it on horseback for the full experience.

The temperature is hotting up and wildlife concentrates around diminishing waterholes. Take your tribe on safari to experience the best game viewing with intense interspecies interaction.
Southern India
'Spice Up Your Life’ and join renowned Australian chef Christine Manfield, author of 'Tasting India', on a small group, ladies-only tour. Our gourmet journey departs 26 Nov 2019.
Isolated showers mean December is 'green season' in Zambia and that means flocks of birds, fewer people and amazing value for money - ideal for family travel to a private house. Christmas sorted!
