Sophia Hyet Guided Safaris
We’re always looking to exceed travel expectations by hosting our guests in extraordinary and unexpected ways.

As CEO and founding board member of Guided Safaris®, Sophia HYET is a photographer and avid traveler continually exploring the world for a global perspective to craft unique and timeless experiences to enhance the firm’s Signature Safari Collection in Africa. Under this international expertise and love for detail the firm’s Chief Designers have trained and traversed extensively within the field to help convey these experiences into a bespoke service tailored completely to guest preference.

“Ours is an artistic value to match people to perfect experiences when they all have such different tastes,” notes Ms. Hyet. With a highly-specialized and handpicked portfolio of niche eco-luxury destinations, Ms. Hyet helps describe the role of her team at Guided Safaris® in their client personalization process:

“We’re mirroring the experience of what would move someone; It’s an interpretive art. Our safaris are really for individuals who seek to commission a true wilderness escape with a taste of something exotic that goes beyond the marble-and-crystal glamor to invest time and money on - they’ve seen and done it all. Our guests want something that reaches into the heart of a journey's authenticity. It’s the unmatched, high-thrill, inimitable luxury of a completely tailored safari experience - it’s wonderfully spiritual to be able to connect with nature in such wild and absolutely beautiful settings. It’s such an exciting journey, what generally starts out as a once-in-a-lifetime experience ends up becoming so fulfilling and engaging it’s an annual thing that we help outfit for our guests.”
