At Safari for Real, we aim to give our guests a holistic experience of Africa’s wilderness and all that it offers: a REAL safari.
We believe that many operators have lost sight of the REAL reason that people come to Africa on safari: the wildlife and wilderness, and that your safari experience to Africa is much more than just fancy accommodation, good food and big game animals. We are looking for wildlife and nature enthusiasts who wish to get a true understanding of how Africa’s ecosystems work to join us on in-depth learning experiences in the greatest wilderness areas in Africa. Our decisions on where to take you are based first and foremost on the wilderness area itself and the wildlife that it has to offer and only secondarily on accommodation and facilities.
