Safari Planning

Private Journeys

Perhaps you’d love a privately guided trip through animal-studded savannah staying in a private homestead? Maybe though,  an uber-luxurious villa within the awe-inspiring, beautiful Winelands or mountainous Cape around Cape Town is going to be your next trip? Then again, perhaps it is an island getaway on a white powdered beach retreat off the east coast of Africa that you’re craving post lockdown. Regardless, we all love intimate privacy.

Private Journeys

While we may have a little or a lot of wanderlust, our individual likes and preferences determine when, where, and how we travel. With Safari Guru, there is certainly no one size fits all approach to travel.

Safari Guru tailor-makes our trips meticulously our travellers’ desires, wishes, and needs. We also offer specialised services with our own journey leaders, specifically chosen private safari guides, and our preferred collaboration partners.

Our tailored itineraries ensure smooth, hassle-free travel. It is the little things and substantial knowledge we bring to the table; that will make your travels comfortable, enjoyable, and spectacularly memorable every time.

We are passionate about sharing our knowledge about the continent we love and enabling our clients to experience the best of it. We aim to not only create fabulous, cost-effective bespoke itineraries but to make every part of your journey, including the planning, both seamless and fun.

So what do we mean?

Private Jet Trips

We can design a private trip curated with our private jet partners. If it is total seclusion that you desire, no problem. We will arrange private collection at your residence and have you in the air on your private jet within hours, saving your time and money. Our services will ensure you arrive at your destination quickly and in stress-free style. We’ll design that journey, so your destinations fit your every want and return you home in the same manner.

Guided Journeys

We offer specific guided journeys, where you’re able to meet up with a very small group of like-minded people and embark on a week or two of adventures. Hence, you can have a social time and need not be concerned about traveling alone.

Private Guides

Would you like to immerse yourself in a safari or African adventure in the Winelands or Highlands? We have private guides who will tailor your experiences to your needs and wishes. They offer experience, knowledge, charisma, fun, and are discretely attentive, and ensure that your individually curated journey is not monotonous and your experiences will be varied. This is particularly perfect for families, where a guide will engage your little ones in the wilderness and keep them entertained.

Private Homestead, Expansive Ranches, or Exquisite Villas

Should you wish to spend time alone with your own family, partner, or friends, we know just the places to ensure your privacy and seclusion.
