It’s a bucket list kind of holiday. Safaris combine the adventure of the unknown with incredible opportunities to experience new wildlife, beaches and cultures in some of the most beautiful and undiscovered parts of the world. If a safari has been on your ‘must do’ list, then 2015 is the year to tick it off.

There are so many different options that choosing the right trip can be tricky, so calling on some expert knowledge is a good place to start – and there’s no one better than Somak Holidays. Whether it’s a visit to the African plains twinned with a boutique beach retreat on the white sands of Zanzibar, gorilla trekking in Uganda or spotting herds of elephants in Kenya, this family-run safari specialist company offers first-hand advice and hand-crafted itineraries, ensuring you get the most out of your trip.

Home to the famous ‘big five’ and hosting the Great Migration, the largest animal movement in the world, Kenya sees the annual wildebeest migration into the Maasai Mara. Somak Holidays is an authority on migration patterns, camp options and game drives, and will advise on the best places to spot cheetahs and cubs, elephants and mongoose.

Over in Tanzania you can combine the adventure of a safari with the relaxation of a beach holiday. The Serengeti and Ngoronogoro Crater are home to a huge variety of wildlife, from rhinos and elephants to Africa’s big cats. Head east to catch some rays on the tranquil beaches of Zanzibar, or hike up Mount Kilimanjaro for something more challenging.

Or how does a trip to the winelands of South Africa sound, or a journey navigating the waterways of the Okavango Delta in Botswana? For an up close and original wildlife experience, Somak Holidays can also put together a tailor-made gorilla trekking trip in Uganda, adapting the itinerary to your budgets and time frame.

For adventure, culture and unexplored territory, a safari is the trip to book in 2015
