Planning your dream safari experience can be challenging and knowing there is someone to walk you through each step, from the initial, introductory conversation about your safari destination right down to the last detail, is a great comfort.

Safari experts are dedicated to working with you to create your ultimate travel experience, listening to your desires, offering sound advice about parks, reserves and styles of accommodation, and ensuring good communication is adhered to at all times.

Trusting someone in the know will ensure your safari planning process goes smoothly. Here are some key reasons you should consider booking with a travel specialist.

Enjoy Concierge-Style Travel Planning

Whether traveling as a party of two or in a group of 10 or more, creating your safari experience with an expert will make you feel like a VIP from the time you start planning to your return home. Your safari expert will listen to your dream vacation wishes and work with you to create the ultimate safari experience for you and your fellow travelers. The attention to detail is welcome and knowing you are in excellent hands at all times puts the ease and fun into travel planning. There are many options out there when it comes to safari destinations and accommodation styles, so having someone personalize the experience is priceless.

Receive Expert Advice

Safari experts know the destinations they are selling, and know them well, either through first-hand experience or having sold the safari product for many years, and they will gladly impar their expert advice. They will take the opportunity to steer you in the right direction, either by suggesting an alternative to your travel idea or advising why a certain safari park or lodge may not be suitable for you.

Sound information, great tips, and little touches, such as unique shopping ideas, hole-in-the-wall dining options, and must-do activities, can truly enhance your overall experience. With the option to ask questions and understand why the recommendations given are the right fit for you, there really is no reason not to consider this route when planning your safari.

Rely on your Safari Planner from Start to Finish

A lot can be said about convenience and when it comes to planning and booking a trip of a lifetime, having a one-stop booking shop to handle it all is a wonderful option. Having an expert discuss your flight routing, and then handle all accommodation, activities, and ground transportation for you - not to mention locking in any other services you may require - is a bonus. One key contact for your safari and your primary “go-to” person if you require any assistance before and during your adventure means you can rest assured a safari expert is by your side every step of the way whilst creating this incredible journey with you.

Receive Up-to-Date Information

Communication is key in all aspects of life and most definitely in the planning and execution of a trip of a lifetime. The travel expert is in the know all the time and can update travelers of any changes to an itinerary due to destination or flight changes. A comprehensive guide and list of dos and don'ts, as well as general information on the destination, its culture, and important must-knows, is sent to you once your safari is booked.

These handy in-destination tips and policies help to enhance the overall experience and give you extra peace of mind. Your travel expert will help simplify the entire booking process, outlining procedures such as visas, vaccinations, and, at this time of exploration, information on Covid-19 PCR testing and rules.

Have Quick Assistance on the Ground

Exploring a foreign land or region is exciting, but facing the unknown can be a little overwhelming, emphasizing the importance of having hands-on assistance on the ground at all times. Safari experts work with incredible and dedicated teams in destination, whose members are there as a first point of contact at any time during your adventure. They will know all about you and your travel wishes and requirements, and are available any time of the day. They work proudly to ensure you have the best experience, whilst keeping your safety in mind at all times. Combined with the support back home, your dream safari vacation could not be more sound.
