Design Your Own Safari

Design Your Own Safari

We’re revolutionizing the way travelers plan their safaris. How? By handing over complete control to the customer, empowering travelers to design their own trips in Africa, their way.

For years, travelling to Africa has been complex and overwhelming to research and more than a little tricky to book independently. In fact, the only viable way to travel to Africa’s wild places has been with the help of a traditional agent. At Timbuktu we’re on a mission to change all that and instead want to empower you, our curious travelers, to easily design your own trip, your way.

So how does Timbuktu work?

Our site allows you to design and customise your own trips from a selection of curated routes across Africa and hundreds of handpicked lodges. Once complete, your individually-designed trip is then sent to our team of travel experts who, using their expertise and knowledge, will iron out the creases and book all your arrangements.

Happy travelling!
