Why book with us

Planning a safari can be a daunting prospect for a first time or even seasoned traveler. Africa is not your ‘run-of-the-mill’ vacation spot, with so many different types of safari and choices of destination on offer, making it is easy to understand why planning your safari could be difficult.

That’s why the biggest benefit you’ll most likely feel from our service is peace of mind.

Peace of mind that your once in a lifetime trip will go off without a hitch.

Because we believe that you deserve that, everyone does.

Our business is a family of over 50 seasoned Safari Experts ensuring your trip is planned perfectly and runs smoothly - all at no cost to you (but more on that later).

How do we make sure your trip is perfectly planned?

First off, we take the time to understand what you want from your safari experience.

Romance? Family time? Pure adventure?

Whatever you’re looking for, rest assured we will puzzle it out!

Then what?

We get to work, so you don’t have to.

Your dedicated Africa expert sorts through hundreds of lodges and experiences in each country that you’d like to visit and tailor makes a trip that’s just right for you.

In no time you’ll have gone from having a vague idea of what your trip will look like to receiving a few detailed digital itinerary options to choose from.

All that troublesome planning has been taken out of your hands and placed into those of an expert.

Lodge and hotel bookings?
Game drives?
Dinner under the stars?

We have it covered. For free (more on how later).

How do you know you can trust us with all of this planning?

Each year our experts are given the opportunity to visit various corners of Africa, to gain first-hand knowledge and a better understanding of what each destination has to offer - accommodation, transport, cuisine and experiences.

The connections our Africa experts make are the keys to providing you with a memorable vacation.

Our 500,000 (and counting) happy travellers over the years also give you something to go by.

Then am I on my own when I travel?

Never. The very same person that planned your trip, booked your flights and arranged that special champagne breakfast, will be on call throughout your entire trip.

That Africa expert will be calling ahead before you arrive at every destination to ensure that each hotel, dietary request and excursions are reconfirmed - we will ensure that your trip is flawless.

You’ll also have a direct line to your Africa expert in case anything goes wrong.

Lost luggage?
Missed flight?
Punctured tyre?

We’ll be there for you no matter what.

How do you know you can trust us with your money?

We were founded in 1992 and have more than 25 successful years of experience in the tourism industry. We’re also an accredited member of these world leading tourism authorities:

  • Tourism Business Council of South Africa
  • Southern Africa Tourism Services Association

These associations guarantee certain standards and recourse.

This means you can enjoy financial peace of mind with complete financial protection.

Any money paid to us also receives a third party guarantee.

How is this all free?

We get paid for the work we do, but not by you.

We earn our money through commission from the suppliers that we work with.

We help reputable lodges, transfer companies, flight operators and tour operators get business, and so they’re quite fond of us.

These relationships with suppliers help us to get you the best prices available.

We leverage that ability to offer you a price guarantee - so if you find a better price than ours, let us know and we’ll match it.

"...both were perfect."

"It was very good in general, I did two trips with Safari.com, one to Kruger that was impeccable and other to the garden route. Both trips were absolutely different but both were perfect. Even then you can expect different things for a trip, the trips exceed our expectations. In the garden route I traveled as a local with “Rock the Route” which was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Krug..."
