Great Safaris Enriching Life Experiences

The magic has already begun! Can you hear it? Like the distant rumble of a million migratory hooves. Can you feel it? Like the warm caress of an African breeze, carrying the rich aroma of wild thyme.

Can you picture yourself in Africa… standing on an ancient salt pan, watching a family of ostrich marching across the shimmering mirage? Can you imagine yourself sitting beside a blue-green lake while sly crocs bask on the shoreline and pods of hippos grunt curiously from the deep?

Can you envision yourself in an open safari jeep surrounded by buffalo… herds so huge they appear as an undulating sea of brown and black. Giraffe loping in ghostly silence across a yellow-flecked savanna. Lions patrolling at sundown. Hyenas nervous, laughing… darting in an out of the full moon shadows.

We hope you will consider Great Safaris as your partner in magic. Together we can conjure up your perfect life- vacation and lead you down a path that you have only walked in your dreams.

And why can we do this? Because we have, ourselves, walked that path time and time again. There is nothing that gives us more pleasure than to gather new friends within our magic circle, and lead them to the Africa that we know and love so well.

Africa speaks in a language that our reasoning has forgotten. It insinuates into our subconscious. It sings a siren song that cannot be ignored. A journey to Africa is a trek into the magical and it is a journey you have already begun. Step inside a bit further… pass through the Great Safaris’ portal and discover what an African safari can do for the sanity and the soul.
