Nothing gives us greater pleasure than creating deep and meaningful safaris for others.  So it was a dream realized when we turned our heart’s desires into a safari company of elegance and distinction.  We knew from the start that what we were offering was unique and extra-ordinarily special and as our company is an extension of what we hold most dear, we choose to treat our guests like family.

Explorations Africa is more than just a safari company.  We’re a family with a passion so deep for Africa, her people, the magnificent wildlife and her last remaining wild places that our sole purpose is to change your life through a soul-enriching experience to Africa.  You’ll never feel the same about life again.

On one of our safaris you’ll find yourself spellbound by the magic of the natural world, wrapped in a peaceful embrace of warmth and friendship, delighted by the small details and enchanted by Africa’s generous spirit.

We specialize in three primary types of Wildlife Safaris: Custom Designed Safaris, Escorted Safaris and Photographic Safaris, with eleven stunning destinations in Africa to choose from.

“Down inside me a tiny voice was calling.  At first scarcely audible, it persisted until I could no longer ignore it.  It was the voice of the wild places and I knew that it was now part of me forever”

What Our Guests Are Saying…

Dan and Ants, we just wanted to say thanks again for making our first trip to Africa a truly memorable one. You were great travel companions and ambassadors along the way. We both had a fantastic time and would not have changed a thing. Cape Town was beautiful. We did everything we wanted to do except go shark diving due to water conditions, but in exchange, Jody was over the moon to go to the Cheetah outreach centre.  We look forward to planning our next safari for 2017!

Oh my gosh this place is beyond gorgeous!  We had a fabulous time at Nottens after a fabulous time at Victoria Falls after a fabulous time at Little Mac. Everything was completely perfect with our travel, accommodation and wonderful people everywhere.  Thank you for making this happen for us. Thank you so much for everything!  We have many envious friends and we tell them all how great Explorations Africa and you and Dan have been to make this trip so stress free and exciting to anticipate!
