Welcome to Burnt Pine Safari

"SAFARI", A Swahili an African word for journey usually conjures up exotic thoughts and mental images of Africa, and the Safari Animals that reside there.  Seeing lions, elephants, and leopards in their native environment is a special and thrilling experience.  A Photo Safari to Africa is more affordable than most people imagine, and we will help you plan your Africa Safari so it becomes your favorite all-time vacation experience.

Here are our favorite African Wildlife Safari Destinations to see Africa’s “Big Five” lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo, & leopard:

  • South Africa - A Photo Safari to South Africa allows travelers great game viewing, as you are most assured of seeing the “Big Five”, but you can also combine gameviewing with other wonderful experiences such as a visit to magnificent Cape Town along with the adjacent Winelands. South Africa has many camps and lodges to choose from, and the Safari can be customized to fit any budget.  Victoria Falls is an easy add-on to a South Africa game viewing experience.  Cape Town & Bush Sample Itinerary - Three Bush Camps sample Itinerary - Ultimate Luxury Safari Sample Itinerary

  • Kenya – A Safari to East Africa and the Masai Mara if timed right will put you in the middle of the Great Migration”  where you will see thousands of wildebeests and zebra on their annual migration looking for new grass to feed on.  The game viewing is good all year long, and the value season offers great game sightings without the crowds.  Sample Itinerary

  • Tanzania Safari - The Serengeti is located in Tanzania and along with Kenya is home to the “Great Migration” during parts of the year.  Ngorongoro Crater is also a game viewing destination in and of its self.  You can combine Kenya and Tanzania on one safari.

  • Zimbabwe Safari - The game viewing in Zimbabwe is excellent; Hwange National Park is second in size to Kruger National Park and home to Africa’s “Big Five”.  The camps are reasonably priced so it is very affordable.  Starting or ending a Safari in Victoria Falls is a great idea. Sample Itinerary

  • Botswana Safari – Botswana has excellent game viewing in very diverse habitat.  The camps tend to be a little more expensive.  Most people who have fallen in love with African Safaris eventually make a safari to Botswana for the experience of the Okavango Delta.

  • Desert Safari – Namibia offers game viewing in the Etosha Pans but the real experience is seeing the  amazing sand dunes and the desert elephants and Oryx that live in that harsh environment, along with the breath taking Skeleton Coast.  Sample Itinerary
