Gay safari vacations

The word ‘safari’ derives from the Arabic word ‘safar’, which means ‘journey’. It is most commonly used to refer to expeditions in South Africa - but at Out Of Office, we offer gay safari vacations in Tanzania, India, Mauritius, Namibia, Uganda and Sri Lanka too. Whether you are looking to join a group of other travelers or build a tailor-made itinerary for you and your significant other, we are your experts in luxury gay safari vacations. And whichever destination you choose, observing the world’s most spectacular wildlife in its natural habitat is sure to be a life-changing experience. 

We recommend

Safari experiences bring you face-to-face with the greatest landscapes and wildlife in the world. At Out Of Office, South Africa is our most popular safari destination, with the great Kruger National Park a vast area of natural beauty and home to an astounding concentration of game. The UNESCO-listed Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is also guaranteed to be an awe-inspiring spectacle, with exceptional chances of spotting the ‘big five’- lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo- in both locations. 

At Out Of Office, we offer other types of safari too- from ethical Sri Lankan elephant safaris in Udawalawe and Minneriya, to husky-driven sleigh safaris pursuing the Northern Lights in Lapland. Whichever location you choose for your luxury gay safari vacation, we know it will be breathtaking! Safari experiences bring you face-to-face with the greatest landscapes and wildlife in the world

African Safaris

Your South African safari experience will begin in Cape Town or Johannesburg. Cape Town is the de facto gay capital of Africa. It’s a cosmopolitan coastal city with a lively gay scene centred around the De Waterkant district. You’ll want to take a trip up Table Mountain where you’ll be greeted with one of the finest views in the world.

You can combine a safari adventure with trips to the Winelands and also a self-drive along the Garden Route, where you’ll explore the south-eastern stretch of South Africa’s coastline.

The most popular safari destination in South Africa is Kruger National Park. It has different safari camps, including the ever-popular Sabi Sabi Game Reserve. Pursuing the Big Five deep into the Africa bush is a great bucket list experience. You’ll set out on morning and evening safaris in an open vehicle. You can also join a walking safari if you really want to get up close with the wildlife and if you’re looking for a gay honeymoon in South Africa then leave that to us to plan the most memorable experience of your life.

Our Favorite Gay Safari Experiences

There are different types of safari experiences for you to consider. It comes down to budget, how active you want to be and where you want to do it. Some people insist on Kruger National Park, as it’s the most famous safari destination in Africa, not to mention the largest. To visit Kruger Park you’ll need malaria jabs, and these can cause side effects for some people. If this might cause a problem then head to the eastern Cape – it’s malaria-free so you won’t need a jab.

We have a number of gay group safari trips to South Africa. You can travel with a group of like-minded travellers and experience many of South Africa’s highlights in one go. Unlike other African countries, South Africa is welcoming to gay people. You can have a fully legal gay wedding in South Africa – you can even do it on safari at one of the luxury lodges.

One of the best safari lodges in Africa is Lemala in Tanzania. It’s female-run and very welcoming to gay people. Lemala has numerous safari lodges covering much of Tanzania’s Northern Circuit, including the famous Serengeti.

Further Inspiration

Cape Town

Cape Town is a good starting point for any trip to South Africa. With its cosmopolitan city culture but also historic side, Cape Town provides the iconic Table Mountain where you’ll find a cable car to take you to its flat top for stunning views of the city. It also has a beautiful harbor where you can take a boat to Robben Island – the famous prison that once was home to Nelson Mandela when he was imprisoned.

Cape Town

South African Winelands

A short drive from Cape Town you’ll find the Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl valleys. South African wine is renowned worldwide and you can sample it first hand as you visit a sumptuous vineyard. With beautiful properties to stay at throughout the winelands, it’s worth spending a few days in the area before heading off on safari.

South African Winelands

Kruger National Park

What better way to see wildlife than in their natural habitat. South Africa is globally known for being the best for wildlife and safari travel. In northeastern South Africa, you’ll find one of the country’s largest reserves. You’re also likely to spot the Big 5 on your trip: lions, rhinos, elephants, leopards and buffalos. We handpick the best properties and game lodges to base yourself for a few days exploring the wilderness.
