The value of an African safari is intangible. It is a journey of the spirit. The soul of Africa refreshes and restores. An African safari changes one’s life.
We at Great Plains Conservation provide the perfect setting for your personalised safari to Botswana, Zimbabwe, Kenya and beyond. Safari with us and create your safari movie and memories that focus on your life story, adventure, romance, and exploration. Feeding your soul, get close to your family and loved ones, and ultimately reconnect with yourself.
We are the nurturing “safe pair of hands” for your safari. Our selection of camps and locations stems from Beverly and me, as National Geographic Explorers, and over 35 years of filming and handpicking the best locations for our African safari camps. We have made films in these places, or still want to, with lions or elephants, leopards or rhinos as familiar as our own family.
Each safari camp, personally designed and decorated by the two of us, expresses our appreciation. Each, in many ways, is a visual love letter to Africa, its wildlife and our people. They are all small, intimate camps, some at just eight beds and others sleeping only 14 guests.
We don’t do large. We don’t jam tents together. Space, quiet, time and quality are all very precious to you and us.
Our Great Plains family opens its heart to you. We can’t wait for you to safari with us.
Welcome, Dumela, Karibu
