Safari Expeditions gives the soul back to the safari experience.
Safari expeditions is more than a company, it is a unique safari philosophy in which we value the safari experience at its most fundamental level. As safaris have become more and more common in Africa, they have also lost some of its Character and allure. Safari expeditions gives the soul back to the safari experience. With 10 years of direct operations in Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda, as well as a network of sister companies in Namibia, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Ethiopia, we can organize your once in a lifetime experience safari in any country in east africa.
How do we do this? Well, first of all, we have a very thorough recruitment process to make sure we have the best guides in the industry working for us. To make them motivated and always on their top shape we are happy to offer the best salaries and working conditions in the industry and run incentives programs to make sure they are compensated whenever they excel in their tours. Then, we only use new or semi-new vehicles. In a safari you spend several hours per day in a vehicle and the condition of the same can make a huge difference in the experience. Our vehicles have larger windows than most so you have a much better viewing experience, they have comfortable and modern suspensions which make the safari more enjoyable even in the most unforgiving roads, they have electric sockets to connect your equipment in case you run out of battery, fridges to keep your drinks cool and many more amenities.
But it’s mostly about the small details and nice touches: Contrarily to most other companies, we provide binoculars in every safari (which are a must); wherever possible we provide amazing and delicious hot lunches with great wines (which will make everyone who is having a cold basic lunchbox look at you with envy); and our selection of recommended accommodation favors small intimate boutique tented camps instead of large hotel chains like most other companies.
We do not believe a safari should be a rushed experience where you are ticking animals off a list. It should be about the experience, about enjoying a sunset while having a drink and watching a cheetah teach its cubs how to hunt. We try to go where the others do not. We avoid crowded areas and busy hotels and try to go out of the beaten path to be awarded with the best wildlife experience which will feel genuine and give you hints of being in an Out of Africa movie, an Hemingway novel or a Livingstone adventure. That’s how a safari experience should feel like. And that’s how Safari Expeditions is.
