In the pioneering spirit of Africa, the Guided Safaris® family began operations at a time when luxury lodges were vastly still an experimental concept in the bush. South Africa was just opening doors to international tourism: The first Singita lodge at Ebony was gaining root, The Vartys of Londolozi were documenting their wildlife tales on television and Guided Safaris® were amongst the first in the globe to take our presentation of custom safari ideas online, breaking the norm of group travel to set out on our own independent trail through off-the-beaten routes under private conservation initiatives. Our camps were small and intimate, with owners often playing host and guide for couples venturing out to Africa for “something different, something new”. Fine wines, crisp linens, open landrovers and fresh culinary offerings by Swahili chefs in authentic safari style dinners were how we introduced and cared for our guests in the raw African wilderness, keeping the travel romance and legend of safari adventure always current and unique in the world.
Two-decades later, the brand's traditional Guided Safaris® savoir-faire remains intact to this day. Our hand-selected portfolio of boutique Luxury Safari Camps in only the choicest wilderness areas are private and away from it all. Our private safaris log fantastic game records with courteous hosts to knowlegeably guide our guests through these unique and gracious homes in the wilderness. The accommodations are outstanding, of course, but it’s the game you’re coming for - and you’ll see plenty of it in our special Private Game Reserves.
