throughout southern Africa.


Welcome to Black Pot Safaris!

Your Safari Leaders

We specialise in providing fully-supported, privately guided and personally tailored self-drive safaris throughout southern Africa for families and groups of friends.

We cater specifically for people who want:

  1. to drive their own 4x4 vehicle and discover Africa for themselves
  2. to create their own route and personalised itinerary and leave the actual bookings to us
  3. to relax in comfortable, stylish campsites
  4. to enjoy delicious food served straight from the fire by an accomplished bush chef
  5. to be accompanied, supported and catered for throughout their safari
  6. to pay one price with no hidden extras which includes vehicle hire, equipment, camping fees, park entrance and food

Black Pot Safaris are delighted to offer this personalised solution for your African adventure. We believe that a safari should embrace the romance of that bygone era when pioneering explorers led expeditions into the heartland of Africa. So we provide those indulgent touches offered by no other guided, self-drive safari company – stylish camp equipment, twinkling lanterns, an array of games and reading materials and an attention to detail and service that will ensure that your main role is to sit back, relax and enjoy what should be the experience of a lifetime.

We thoroughly enjoy children on safari and actively promote their inclusion in the experience. We find that they bring a natural curiosity and enthusiasm to any safari and that we, in fact, have much to learn from them.

So leave the modern world behind you and come with us as the only guests on a trip you have designed yourselves and ensure that the passion of those pioneering explorers lives on through your own wilderness experience.
