Our 2025 Calendar

Pictus Safaris specialises in small-group safaris, but we can also offer all of our tours on a private basis, either with a tour leader or without. 

Here at Pictus Safaris, we are proud to have an in-depth knowledge of safari destinations across Africa - from exciting, emerging destinations in West and Central Africa, to established destinations in Eastern and Southern Africa. Each year, we offer 20-25 small-group set departures to destinations across the continent, as well as private departures to over 40 African countries. Our 2025 departures are scheduled as below, but if you can't make the dates we are planning, or if you would to visit a destination not listed, please don't hesitate to get in touch as we are always happy to arrange private departures on request.
