INSIDER PLACES – ON TOP OF THE GAME How to book a Safari for less
Safari holidays feature high on most people’s dream holiday list, but they are notoriously expensive when booked through a UK tour operator. Insider Places connects travellers with carefully selected, reputable operators in the country they are visiting, cutting out the middleman and saving up to 20% by direct booking.
With over 30 years experience in the travel industry Chris Fraser, Managing Director of Insider Places, knows a great local agent when he meets one. Each local agent selected to work with Insider Places has been met and interviewed by Fraser and is at the top of their game, they are fully-licenced travel businesses, demonstrating integrity and high ethical standards while providing the best possible service.
Fraser, says “Insider Places is for those who want to immerse themselves in the real essence of a destination. More authentic, closer encounters with the culture, wildlife, nature, people and traditions. Opportunities to live like the locals, eat like them, cook with them. Away from ‘The Gringo Trail’ that is so often served up by many travel operators, but with the security that comes from the backing of a UK-based, ABTA bonded company.”
Insider Places’ local experts design every tour based on each traveller’s unique requirements. Their insider knowledge is key to creating the most unforgettable experiences, unlike tours offered by many UK operators, nothing about the itineraries featured on the Insider Places website is set in stone.
Suggested holidays include a 10 night South African Safari from £1146 pp* including 3 nights in the Kruger National Park and a tour of the magnificent Garden Route. Or, a 14 night tour of the highlights of Namibia from £1620 pp*; including a stay in Africa’s largest game reserve Namib Naukluft National Park and the renowned Etosha National Park. Alternatively, you can combine a 3 night Safari in Botswana’s beautiful Chobe National Park with 3 nights at the Victoria Falls and 5 nights in a luxury wilderness beach resort in Mozambique for £2018 pp*.
All bookings are financially secure since Insider Places has full ABTA bonding, and booking directly with a local tour operator means that more money goes back into the local economy.

Charity support – £15 donated for every booking
Insider Places will donate £15 for every booking to Child Hope – a UK-based organisation ChildHope is an international children’s charity working with local partner organisations in Africa, Asia and South America to protect children living in some of the most difficult and dangerous circumstances from harm and abuse, and support them to build a better future.
“ChildHope is delighted to have been chosen as Insider Places’ charity partner. £15 buys a child in Bangladesh new toys, colouring and story books in one of our day care centres for young children forced to work on rubbish dumps with their families. We look forward to working together”. Says Jill Healey, Executive Director
