A Family Safari In Greater Addo  
The plan was to explore eastern Lesotho on a week-long expedition visiting places of interest along the way. Five days of moderate to difficult 4x4 tracks, crossing mountain passes and rivers, finding waterfalls and hiking rolling green hills...that was the plan when two of us were going to rough it a bit with no rest days. Then, the day before departure we had to change our plans after one of the expedition members had to cancel due to last minute work commitments that he could not postpone... read full article

    who are we?  

We're an adventurous family with a passion for Africa and we explore this amazing continent at every opportunity we get! We're in the fortunate position to work in the safari industry, more specifically promoting Africa's tourism destinations for the past 15 years.

A while ago we decided to show our children the wonders, beauty and diversity of the African continent by taking them on expeditions to some of the most incredible places on earth!

We have a love for Africa, its diverse people and the incredible places. On our journeys we search for the best destinations and most amazing experiences you can enjoy on an African safari. We write about it, take photographs, shoot videos and talk about our trips on our blog. Read more about us below and be sure to follow us on facebook and twitter to stay up to date with our journeys of discovery around Africa!

See where we travel by exploring our routes and get our perspective about safari gear and equipment you might find useful on your own African safari.

Here's a bit about The Safari Co.'s intrepid family:

Dirk: During my childhood we spent most of our holidays in the African bush where I grew to love the birds, wildlife and Africa's diverse cultures. After my studies I worked as a dental technician in London and soon realised that my heart was back in Africa where I was born. I packed my bags and on my return worked as a safari guide in southern and east Africa. It is a priviledge to show my family the amazing places I've seen and to bring back news to you about this fascinating continent!

Zuney: I grew up in a farming community and got to spend hours on farms exploring and experiencing the still quiteness of the wilderness. I fell in love with the solitude of the outstreched plains and dense bush and how it has the ability to quite down the mad rush of life and simplify it. I love the journey and believe it's as much part of the destination as getting there. People fascinate me. Spending time observing different cultures and reading travel stories are a favourite past time.

The kids: Both our kids enjoy nature and we try to instill a love for Africa and its people in them through our travels and exposure to different cultures.

A bit more about The Safari Co.:

  Who are we?
  our responsibility to give back to africa - touch the land  
Part of our commitment to Africa is to give back to the people and places of this amazing continent through partnering with an organization called Touch the Land.

We seek to redistribute the revenue generated through The Safari Co., to those people that need it most. We do this by donating a portion of our profits each year to Touch the Land - a foundation that implements rural community development projects in some of the countries featured on our website. Our expeditions include visits to some of the communities supported by Touch the Land. This enables us to see first hand where we can assist and how our efforts can optimally impact people's lives. We will include feedback of these visits as and when it takes place.

Best of all, when you use The Safari Co. website to plan your African safari you are making a real difference in the lives of the people in Africa! If that makes you feel good, that's exactly what it's suppose to do. It's great to do this together.
