Halal Safaris is a pioneer company in offering both luxury halal travel and exclusive Islamic heritage trips, as well as Islamic Tourism consultancy services, in the continent of Africa. The company recognizes Africa as being the cradle of Islam and organizes special exclusive trips to learn about the Islamic history and culture of different countries while also exploring rich nature and popular cultural destinations existing in the region. They aim to curate Islamic art and history in Africa with exclusive packages, and also trace the paths of renowned Muslim travelers and figures in Africa like Ibn Battuta and Mansa Musa, all in an attempt to revive the history of Islam in Africa.
Apart from the Islamic heritage trips, their tailor-made safari tours are a one-of-a-kind experience you should try at least once in your life. “You should get ready to have your breath taken away and be in awe. You will witness sceneries and experience moments that no camera can ever do justice to. You will actually end up being mad at your phone/camera and find yourself just putting it down to take it all in. Since most savannahs are very flat, the 360-degree view of the sky, rolling hills, lakes and scenery of undisturbed nature is magnificent,” are the words Samia uses to describe the safari experience.
