Planning your safari will be a lot easier with my help...

I ask you to describe your interests and expectations - and use my 26 years

of experience to help you create the best itinerary at the best price you would find anywhere - from anyone. I specialize in planning, suggestions and advice, strong personal attention and the likelihood of reduced pricing. 

I live and work from my South Africa home several months each year and spend a lot of time visiting safari lodges and camps. Many of those who operate them are now good friends. I always want to check again on the quality of the wildlife experience - that’s your main reason for being there! And I want to be sure they continue to maintain the quality of accommodations, dining, service that we insist on and that you expect. In January and February of 2014 I stayed in 22 of the lodges in the Sabi Sand Reserve for just that reason.

If you are already considering certain safari lodges and camps that interest you I’d like to offer my quote for those properties. And I will also tell you about some of my favorite places you might not yet know about.

Costs? I am committed to value-for-money. I am sure I will be able to offer you significant savings at every stop all throughout your trip. Please write or call me.

I will offer advice and quotes. And unmatched personal service and attention.

I will help you bring to life the excitement and drama of the safari life that you envision. I live it and I want you to experience it, too.

Thanks, Dave Patterson -
