Why Journeys Discovering Africa
When planning a safari, it’s vital you pick one of the best African safari companies available. In a lifetime of going on safari in Africa, our founders have developed a keen sense of what it means to get off the beaten track for those elusive moments in the bush, whether you’re in a mosquito net under the stars or on a luxury helicopter safari.
Our CEO Patrick Shah was born and raised in Kenya, and he spends a large part of his year in Africa, making sure that we deliver the very best safari experiences available. Fellow founder Victoria Kisekka has lived in east Africa for over 25 years. With their two decades experience of running luxury safari companies, you can be pretty sure you’re in the right hands.
There are so many travel companies out there, so how do you decide which one is right for you? Well, here are some compelling reasons to choose Journeys Discovering Africa…
Our Safaris Are Tailored For Our Clients
We wouldn’t be here but for our loyal clients, many of whom travel with us year after year. Browse feedback on the independent tour operator review site SafariBookings from some of them. The reason our safaris are successful is because they are completely tailor made to fit our clients, and not the other way round. The safari ideas you find here are a starting point to give you an idea of what is possible, and we will never shoehorn you into something that’s not right for you.
Our Destination Knowledge Is Among The Best
Although headquartered in the UK, we also employ in Africa, and are one of a handful of safari companies that can offer genuine front line expertise in this way. Our founders’ African origins and their extensive relationships in the safari industry ensure that we always have our ear to the ground and give you the best safari, at the best price. Unlike other companies that sell trips all over the world, we concentrate only on Africa’s Top Eight safari destinations, and consequently know each one intimately.
You Have Peace Of Mind With Us
As you would expect, our public liability and professional indemnity insurance and our membership of the Travel Trust Association ensure you are 100% financially protected when you book a safari with us, no matter where you are in the world. We take great pride in getting the details right – hundreds of little things that some companies may not even be aware of. We guarantee that you will receive the highest standard of personal attention at every stage of the planning and running of your safari.
We Reinvest In Our Wilderness Areas
We are active supporters of conservation and community initiatives through our local partnerships. They include the Uganda Conservation Foundation, which runs conservation projects in and around Uganda’s national parks, and the Rwanda-based Gorilla Doctors, which provides medical care and monitoring of gorillas across Rwanda, Uganda and DRC. These partnerships allow us to help ensure that key wilderness areas are preserved for generations to come.
YOUR PERFECT SAFARI
We believe that the perfect safari is fun, well paced and rich in experience. It is safe, comfortable, and it will allow you to learn about the areas, wildlife, and people you see along the way.
Our team have been delivering the very best in African safaris for years and will work to make your safari an experience you will always treasure. We hope you will share in our passion for this amazing continent, and that your time with us will truly be a journey discovering Africa.
