A safari is an overland journey, usually a trip by tourists to Africa. In earlier years, the trip was a big-game hunt, but today, safari often refers to trips to observe and photograph wildlife - or hiking and sight-seeing.

Established since 1968 we have built our reputation on personal service, quality hotels and outstanding value for money. Somak is a leading independent specialist to Africa. Somak Safaris, Somak Holidays & Somak Vacations are trading names of Somak Travel.

Somak Holidays specialise in providing quality Safaris, Tours and Beach holidays. Destinations include Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Our expert and friendly team also offer full tailor-made services.

There are many reasons why you should travel with Somak Holidays and Somak Safaris, here are some of them:

  • Somak has nearly 50 years experience of providing dream holidays in Africa.
  • Somak was founded in 1968, 5 years after Kenya won independence.
  • Since then Somak Holidays, together with Somak Safaris, have provided over 100,000 wildlife and nature enthusiasts with an unforgettable African experience.
  • Somak listen to, and act upon, feedback received from our guests in an effort to better ourselves and provide the best possible experience for each traveller.
  • With our guests comfort in mind, we offer a guest lounge, the only one of its kind in Kenya, where all of our guests with time to spare in Nairobi can relax, have a bite to eat, take a shower and store luggage.
  • Our driver-guides in Kenya and Tanzania are some of the best in Africa; they are friendly and informative and have extensive knowledge of the region and the wildlife.
  • Throughout East and Southern Africa we work extremely closely with specialist partners to give our guests the very best experience that Africa has to offer.
