African Safari Your Way: 4 Reasons to go on Your African Safari with Us
Unbiased African Safari Recommendations for Your Private Safari
We don’t own African safari properties and promise never to put you on an African safari tour circuit. We approach private safaris differently. We’re not limited by ties to certain African safari lodges and our Africa tour expertise is not confined by alliances to a single African safari region, safari activity, or safari experience. We’ll give you our honest opinions and help you uncover your ideal African safari—from rugged and adventurous African safari vacations to the ultimate, ultra-luxurious bucket list safari. We love safaris in Africa. All of it. Whether you want to do a flying safari over Ethiopia, track sand lions with a walking safari on a Namibia safari, climb volcanoes to hang with gorillas on a Rwanda safari, or go for the quintessential, classic safari experience on a Tanzania safari (or a Kenya safari—we know the difference), we’re totally with you.
Luxury Safaris With a Local's Perspective & Insider Access
Our African safaris are designed using nearly three decades of connections and on-the-ground safari holiday expertise, which means insider African safari tour experiences you won’t find elsewhere. Imagine a trekking safari alongside Uganda’s renowned gorilla doctor or navigating the mighty South Luangwa on a Zambia safari with a legendary safari guide. What’s more, with an office in Cape Town led by one of our Africa safari experts, Daniela Bonanno, we have our finger on the pulse of all things Africa safari. Daniela’s not going to the Hamptons for the weekend, she’s exploring the newest safari bush camps and South African vineyards. Her friends are the private safari guides, African designers, and entrepreneurs behind the scenes. Meaning your African safari will be designed with a local’s insight, and you’ll get VIP treatment along the way.
