Our Safaris

We want to fulfill your African Dream, but first we ask a few questions…What animals or events (the Great Migration!) are high on your wish lists? What’s your travel style? Is a luxury villa or traditional tented camps preferred?  Then we tailor trips to Africa, Your Way.

Africa, Your Way

Like the stripes on a zebra, no two human fingerprints are the same. That’s why we offer a range of trip types and styles.  Each one is designed to have a positive impact on the people and communities we visit, and to help protect wild and marine life. Take your pick from:

  • Tailor-Made:  Our most popular travel style, 95% of guests request bespoke journeys to our 17 destinations in Africa.

  • Safari Vacation Packages:  For the ultimate in value, we’ve crafted 30 Brochure itineraries and online Safari Specials that include amazing values. These include Meaningful Moments for each trip from private guiding and special dinners to unique ways to view wildlife, like balloon safaris or star beds.

  • Group Safaris:  10 travelers or more qualify for a group safari, so families, corporate groups, or like-minded travelers can benefit from shared costs and special events. 

And we also cater based on travel style including heritage travel, family, romance, and adventure cruises – safari + island hopping. To start, we also created a guide to choose the best African safari.

Every trip includes:

  • Dedicated US-based Safari Specialist, contactable via email and phone, to make every step easy and enjoyable

  • Memorable moments with every trip

  • Choice of Meet & Greet Services ranging from basic airport transfers to VIP, including getting whisked away to customs and quickly onto your adventure

African Travel Loyalty

Africa has come a long way since Teddy Roosevelt took his first safari in 1909. Then, there was only one way to go on safari and that was on foot, carrying your tent and provisions with you. Today, there are numerous choices and decisions to be considered when crafting your personal safari experience and we are experts at helping you make the selection that is best for you. We eat, sleep and breathe Africa; this is our passion. Let us share it with you.
