A Love For Luxury Safaris
By Rose Hipwood, founder of The Luxury Safari Company
If aged 16 someone had told me that I’d be running a luxury safari company I would have laughed. Who knew that this is what I’d end up doing having been singled out for an academic career of some sort, but aged 18 during that youthful year of freedom we call a gap year Africa well and truly got me, hook line and sinker. Having always been obsessed by animals it seemed only natural to me that Africa was where I should be heading when all my friends were intent on getting drunk in Australia. As soon as I touched down in the tiny thatched Kruger airport I knew I was a goner, and promptly sent an email to my parents saying I was never coming home. From this first day spent in a small game reserve on the edge of the Kruger my deep passion for this amazing continent has grown at a rate of knots.
I was lucky enough to work for many years for an exceptional company, who allowed me to travel to Africa several times a year and cut my teeth learning the trade from the very best. In the last ten years the term luxury safari has changed so much which is what prompted me to start The Luxury Safari Company in 2010 – no longer did the term ‘luxury’ simply define the quality of the lodge or camp, it was now all about the location, the experiences offered and the overall atmosphere of the camp. As these are things I am passionate about, and indeed look for in my own ideal safari camp, I decided the time had come to create something in line with these ideals.
The Luxury Safari Company team have an unrivalled knowledge of the bush, and specialise in making sure your luxury safari camp has that edge over it’s competitors, that extra experience which will make your journey a truly once in a lifetime holiday. We make sure you get to spend your days with the right people, in the unknown remote parts of Africa, with abundant wildlife and breath taking scenery. A safari with us is designed so that the noises of the birds never leaves you, so that you can draw up the smell of the dusty earth when you like, and so that you come back rested, mind, body and soul.
It is hard to appreciate how much Africa will affect you until you’ve been there – there is something so awe inspiring about being out in nature, in areas which haven’t changed for hundreds of years. The term ‘the Africa bug’ should not be used lightly, it bites hard and you’ll find yourself yearning for Africa daily. This magical place never ceases to amaze and nothing can compare to the roar of a distant lion at night, to the whoop of hyenas, or the call of a dove as the sun rises. We love this continent, and we believe we owe our 80% referral rate to the fact that we want you to love it too - we think this really shows in our luxury safari itineraries.
