Working with AfricaGuide for 17 years
We are a family run business based in Northern KwaZulu-Natal, registered since 1999, but trading for much longer.
We specialise in photographic safaris throughout Southern Africa and all our guides are fully qualified, experienced and registered with the relevant authorities, but most importantly, they are passionate about Southern Africa’s wildlife and cultural heritage.
On our private tours we do not place groups together to fill the vehicle. This way you are ensured the full attention of our guide and you have all the benefits of doing a self-drive, but with the added knowledge of our guide’s experiences. It also means that we can start the tour on the day you prefer.
All tours are conducted in an air-conditioned vehicle. We do use third party operators for some activities offered on our tours, in which case we make use of that operator’s vehicle which is more suitable for the activity and terrain (eg open safari vehicles on game drives or 4x4 vehicles for rough terrain).
The accommodation on offer in our itineraries are of a 3-star to 4-star level, although not all are officially graded. We prefer to make use of the smaller, more personal lodges, guesthouses and bed & breakfasts that we have built a relationship up with over the years. We return to these establishments time after time for their value for money, personal service, cleanliness, unique offerings and of course due to good reviews from our previous guests. All accommodation on our itineraries is en-suite.
For our guests’ peace of mind, we are members of SATIB (South African Tourism Industry Brokers) – providing you with comprehensive assistance and cover in an emergency.
