We believe in going past professionalism. As Abhijit Naskar once said…

Be not professional in what you do, rather be excellent. Excellence has life in it – it has colors in it – it has sweetness in it – whereas professionalism is a dead corpse exuding the disgusting smell of obedience. Excellence requires no obedience, yet in excellence you act your best, without all the life-sucking efforts

Authentic Africa Safari offers just that; authentic safaris at the best industry rates. We aren’t just experienced, affordable and competent guide company, we understand your favorite destinations better.  This is what one of our past clients, Shane Bettini had to say…

A group of us did a 6.5 day trek up Kilamanjaro with John and his support team, they gave us an unbelievable experience, with great knowledge, amazing food and service which surpassed our expectations, truly amazing, we then did a 3 day safari with John, another memorable experience, great safaris, excellent accommodation and again John was a pleasure to have around. thanks John
