We are passionate about conserving our world’s precious Wild Spaces. We support nature conservancies in areas of high conservation value. This could mean that the land has endangered or threatened species on it, the land forms part of a migratory corridor for wildlife, and/or extends existing protected lands, thereby extending the range area for wildlife.
Our promise to you, our valued guest, is to take you on an incredible adventure into the stunning remote wilderness of Africa. We hope the experience will touch you deeply, and maybe even be life-changing.

Excite your senses, re-energise your soul.

Detail is important to us, as is conveying what we as a company stand for. That’s why we chose ancient symbols used by tribes, such as the Maasai, through the ages, to be part of our logo.

The circles within a circle represent unity within a community.

Conservation Safaris logo

The waves represent our natural environment.

The paws represent the wildlife.

Putting these symbols together, we are a company that believes in bringing together and sharing our wildlife & natural heritage with our global communities.

Make your safari count

Wildlife in Africa is under threat like never before. Poaching is rampant, poverty & the human population are ever increasing. However, we can make a difference!

Join us on a Conservation Safari. Have an incredible adventure and experience the camps and destinations we choose, which helps us support community-based conservation projects. By doing so, we directly improve the lives of the people living with wildlife, provide education and increase understanding of the importance of protecting our precious natural spaces & resources. We encourage & support alternative sources of income, including sustainable use of natural resources.

I had no idea you could have such luxury in the bush! It was awesome. We loved it. And the wildlife was pretty good too! ;) Thank you for making our Honeymoon so special. We will always treasure it.
Rebecca & Steve, Canada
We are our nearly on our last day here and the trip has been splendid! Truly remarkable adventure – thank you! This trip, from start to finish, was perfectly conceived, organized and executed. I cannot thank you enough, but hope you understand how deeply we appreciate all your work.
Susan & John, USA
Our experience was EXCELLENT! We thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Our itinerary was well put together, taking into account all our requests and interests, and included a good variety of experiences and different accommodation. We saw all the animals and more… sometimes it was overwhelming, and went beyond my expectations! Altogether a fabulous and unforgettable experience that I want to do again. Short of curbing my burning desire to go to Africa, the trip has done the opposite, I want to go again and again!
Lou & John, Australia
I’ll keep it short. It was brilliant. Truly an unforgettable experience. The wildlife was of course the star of the show. But the unexpected highlights for us were also the wonderful staff, our excellent Guide (thank you for our specialist bird guide!), and the amazing scenery. Thank you, and see you again soon!
John & Julie, UK
We had a truly wonderful time and Conservation Safaris tailored our safari perfectly to our wishes. We specified that we wanted most to have maximum experiences with the animals and we certainly did that!! The four safari camps we stayed in all had their own charm and I was sorry to leave each one, only to be delighted at the next…. It was magical!!!
Mark was great in sorting out the complexities before our Safari and keeping us informed. Although we are seasoned travellers, we could not have organized such a great trip ourselves. We will be back and I have recommended Conservation Safaris to our friends and would recommend them whole-heartedly to anyone.
Kym & Stan, Australia
We truly enjoyed our holiday. We would rate our overall experience, and your service as excellent!
The only thing we would have changed is we would have preferred to fly to each camp instead of driving… All camps and lodges were excellent. We thought we might have preferred to stay longer at each camp and therefore eliminate one of the camps but after looking back we would have a hard time deciding which camp to eliminate. They were all great in their own way. Singo [our Driver/Guide] was excellent! My only suggestion would be for Lemala camp to bring warm water in the morning to use for washing up… If that is my only suggested improvement, it should tell you that we thought the whole vacation was fabulous!
Frank, Lisa, Erika & Kurtis, Canada
This was a great experience from beginning to end. The level of professionalism with which our trip was handled was impressive – not only did we receive invaluable guidance in planning our trip (especially given that we were admittedly a very demanding group, wanting to do many different things in the little time we had available), but we could also enjoy our safari secure in the knowledge that every minute aspect of the trip was in very capable hands! I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Conservation Safaris to anyone – I seriously doubt that our trip would have been as great a success had it not been for them!
Liz, Louis, Guido, Jane, Sarah, Karl, Paul, Marzena, Sergio & Alison, Malta, Poland & UK
Thank you for asking how our trip to Botswana was. Our immediate answer is “just fantastic”, it was one of our best holidays until now. Our favourite camp in Botswana was Duma Tau. Thank you very much for the organisation of this trip, and we are looking for our next safari trips to Botswana, Kenya, or…?
Ladislav & Renata, Czech Republic
What a fabulous time Vika and myself had and only would have dreamt of in the past. To start with, from Vika’s initial enquiry with your company we had been dealt with in a totally professional manner, every activity requested was made available to us. Our guide, words cannot describe how courteous, helpful, polite, cheerful and very, very knowledgeable he was, a true gentleman and great ambassador not only for your company but also his country. Our Safari was superb and went like clock work… All accommodation was authentic and fitted well with our surroundings and the politeness/friendliness of all staff was amazing they made us feel very welcome and just could not do enough for us, food was second to none. We wish you and your team every happiness possible. We shall be back!
John & Vika, UAE
Thank you very much – we had a fantastic trip. Our itinerary was very complex, with lots of flights to catch – we were amazed how well everything worked!
Lisa & Paul, UK
I loved my epic safari, 6 countries in 6 weeks! I can’t believe it, but everything went like clockwork – I didn’t miss a single flight or connection. My absolute favourite had to be the lemurs and chameleons in Madagascar, although the gorillas and chimps in Uganda weren’t too bad! I just wish I’d had more time in each place… I’ll be back!
