If you want to be serious about your safari, don’t be shy to ask about the quality of the guides. A good travel company should be able to suggest the best, and they could make all the difference to your experience. If you are planning on being active and adventurous on safari (walking, canoeing, horse-riding etc.), then good guiding is essential from a safety standpoint.
It is possible to hire specialist ‘private guides’ across much of Africa. This can be within the framework of permanent camps and lodges, or more often connected with some kind of private mobile safari or walking trail. With many years experience as a leading Africa specialist we know personally and have worked with a wide range of specialist and professional guides. These guides are ‘the best of the best’ and are experts in their field.
If you feel that you would appreciate a private vehicle and/or a specialist private safari guide for all or part of your safari, please advise us when you speak to us. We are very flexible and different regions present different opportunities, so we will simply work with you to include the level of exclusivity and guiding that you desire.
