As we write this, the excitement is mounting in our home as we and our two children ready ourselves to return to Africa where we will reconnect with family and friends, and explore Madikwe Private Reserve in South Africa.
Although David was born and raised in Africa, has explored over 30 countries there, and we have been operating safaris for over 20 years, it never ceases to reveal something new to us, and it has been a great pleasure to share this sense of wonder and discovery with thousands of travelers through custom safaris.
For 2014 we’ve selected our top six custom safaris to help you get started. Whichever you choose, you will be embarking on an adventure that optimizes every day of your trip. We understand that a trip to Africa is a big undertaking, and that you want every day to count. Therefore, all of our safaris include camps we trust from 20 year relationships with them, captivating experts to guide you, and knowledge of African aviation unmatched by other safari operators. Plus, you have the peace of mind that comes from working with African travel experts based in the United States.
Whether you have been to Africa once, twice, or not at all, we are sure that there is something among our six custom African Safaris featured for 2014 that will inspire you: a safari all generations of your family can enjoy together (see page 28); the Great Migration (see page 14); or a warm destination to escape winter blues (see page 32). Once you’ve identified your dream safari, call one of our California-based expert travel planners at 1-800-995-8689 to learn more. They will answer any questions you have, and help you customize any of these programs to suit your schedule, interests and budget. With our very best wishes for a year of new discoveries.
