This is part two of our candid four-part series on how to plan your ideal African Safari, and why to do it with our safari experts. You may take one safari in your lifetime. We’re giving you our no-holds-barred knowledge on what to consider to help make sure it’s the right one for you.
In part one of this blog series, we shared how getting a local’s perspective and insider access can take you beyond the tourist stops and connect you with the heartbeat of a place. We explained how we use our nuanced destination knowledge, strong local connections and longtime friendships to create inspiring safaris for you. You can learn more here.
Our second reason for choosing to plan your Safari in Africa with us? Creativity.
Planning an African safari on your own can be a daunting task. It’s easy to default to the seemingly most straightforward option. But, this could leave you trapped in a circuit or uninspired itinerary. This isn’t our style. We work differently. Creativity fuels our experts and their approach to planning private safaris. Our experts thrive on learning what makes you excited about travel and finding ways to include your passions in your trip.
Take our safari travel planner, Stacey Sullivan. She is known for incorporating experiences so original you probably haven’t heard of them yet.
Want to wed your love of elephants with your penchant for design? Or gain access to some of the planet’s virtually off-limits areas? How about getting an adrenaline rush microlighting over roaring Victoria Falls, then capping-off your day with an open-air bubble bath overlooking the landscape? Stacey can make it happen. She’s surprised her clients with an unexpected landing on Namibia’s Caprivi Strip to meet a world-famous conservationist. She’s even arranged for hundreds of singing and dancing Samburu to greet a family when they arrived at their camp in the middle of nowhere in northern Kenya.
Whatever your passion we can help you incorporate it into your safari. Each of our safari experts have their own interests—photography, wine, active adventure, the list goes on. They understand the thrill that comes from doing something you love in a totally new way and will help you seek it out. What’s more, they’ve done it themselves and will give you honest answers to all of your questions.
Bottom line: Our African safari itineraries are creative, no routes or repeats here. We know that each traveler has unique interests, wants, energy levels, and tastes, and will fine-tune your safari to reflect this.
