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

  Please tap on my photo, and I will tell you a little more..

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 reduced pricing where possible to give you value for money. 

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 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 you expect.

I work in all areas of Greater Kruger - also in Kwa Zulu Natal - and specialize in the

private reserves in Sabi Sand. More details here..


If you are already considering certain safari lodges and camps in any area that interests 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.

I am sure I will be able to offer you significant savings at every stop all throughout your trip. Please send me an email. 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 -
