Why Us

We know there’s lots of choice out there, but we hope our enthusiasm, unrivalled knowledge and efficient service will win you over – below is a little about us. We have plenty of lovely clients who would be happy to chat to you direct if you’d like OR click here to see a live feed from our Safari Bookings review site.

We are a global luxury safari company established in early 2010 by experienced luxury safari specialists, and are able to book flights and tailor make exclusive safari itineraries for clients from every corner of the world – we accept USD, GBP, EUROS and ZAR:

EFFICIENT LIGHTENING QUICK PERSONAL SERVICE: Our founder Rose Hipwood has taken the company forward with an old fashioned ethos, each and every one of our clients has a dedicated travel professional who they can call on any time any day and expect a response almost immediately.

WE ARE ACTUALLY IN AFRICA SOURCING NEW LUXURY PROPERTIES AND UPDATING KNOWLEGDE ON OLD FAVOURITES: We’re in and out of Africa all the time. We’re always the first to see new properties, and are always re visiting old ones to check they’re maintaining the standard we require for our guests, as well as hunting out new adventures for you all to have.

OUR PRO GUIDES: We specialise in privately tailor made safaris guided by some of Africa’s best pro guides. These guides give you another level of knowledge, fun and enjoyment when on safari, as well as allowing you access to some of the best areas and contacts in the business. Our sister company based in Nairobi is made up of handpicked guides who are known to be the best in Africa.

THE BEST CONTACTS IN THE BUSINESS: Rose has been in the business for years and has built up a fantastic network of contacts who are always willing to pull in favours for her. She is able to get her clients into the best camps, in the most remote and exclusive areas with the best guides. She always includes little extras and experiences which others don’t even know exist.

THE BEST FOR LESS: Thanks to Rose’s contacts and experience she also has the best prices and special offers at Africa’s luxury camps and lodges – in fact she often has her own unique special offers just for her clients. The rate tour operators get at the camps and lodges is much less than the public rate one receives when booking direct, which means it’s always more cost effective to book with an operator.

WE ARE PROTECTED: We are fully protected under the Package Tour regulations for both tour operators liability and financial failure. You are always fully protected against any (extremely unlikely) mishaps.

COMMITTED TO RESPONSIBLE TOURISM: We support numerous conservation and community initiatives across Africa, and through promotion of Donate To Wildlife Conservation (.com) we get funding to the smaller projects desperately in need. We also handpick our luxury safari properties for the amount they put in to their own community and the wildlife surrounding it. Luxury tourism in Africa contributes heavily to the survival of Africa’s wildlife and it’s people through fees which are donated and included in your bednight cost.

In short, booking your holiday with The Luxury Safari Company is fun, easy and always ends with a life changing magical experience in Africa itself. GET IN TOUCH NOW.
