Stress—free safari planning for family,
honeymoon, and more...

Updated: September 30, 2023

Dear Guest,

You have now taken the first step toward the most extraordinary experience of your life… Many travelers have dreamt of one day enjoying the World—class wildlife viewing in the legendary Serengeti, or Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, or Masai Mara in Kenya or a beach holiday in Seychelles or Zanzibar Island… but because of lack of time or ‘life’ just getting in the way, few ever make it to these exceptional attractions in Africa.

But if you are reading these now that’s probably not you, after all, you have moved beyond dreaming to searching… if you know now it’s your time… and that you are ready to explore this part of the World you have dreamt of.

Safari is more than a word; it is a siren call for the traveling soul. For those who have yet to experience it, it is a goal. For the fortunate who have felt its magic… safari is a magnetic memory, calling them back.

In truth, safari is often a once-in-a-lifetime experience—so it makes sense to travel with the best….

And that’s Shrike Safaris.

To us, safari is more than just a business. It is a way of life. Africa is our home, we’re born here and we live here, exploring it is our passion… and delighting our guests is what truly drives us.

We believe that; no two experiences are the same because no two requests are ever identical… we’re obsessed with making sure we provide you with a tailor-made safari that is perfect down to the very last detail and immerse you in the world of nature, culture, and the true African experience that you’ll be boasting about to your friends around the dinner table for years.

We take the stress of planning an African safari away from you so that you can look forward to the trip of a lifetime...

Planning the best African safari with an overload of information is real stress… it takes more than knowledge and experience. It takes TIME. That’s what we offer you and we really mean it:-

  • We take the time to listen to you and get to know your wishes and plans, then we design a trip for you that ticks every box.
  • There’s no limit on the amount of time we’ll spend refining your itinerary with you until you’re completely satisfied, and we welcome you to ask for any number of tweaks and adjustments.

Nothing is too little, and nothing is ever too much.

If you can dream it, we can build it...

We've never devised the same safari twice

With Shrike, no two safaris are the same; each safari is as unique as you are—this is what makes our custom safaris unbeatable.
