Shrike’s safari guide has set the standard for excellence in East Africa. Their kindness and caring, along with their knowledge of all things African, will remain with you long after you return back home. After all, these chaps will spend enjoyable hours with you, revealing the wonders of the region’s geography, history, tribal lore, and, of course, its wildlife.
Who knows what’s in store for you? Chance, and the skill of your safari guide, will determine whether you will see a family of cheetahs sunning themselves sleepily on a rock, the drama of a lion kill, or the thrill of an elephant charge. The trees in the distance turn out to be a family of giraffes. The clump of bushes is a pride of lions. And the rock that moves may well be a rhino lumbering out of your way. In any event, the sheer mass and spectacle of the animals surrounding you will provide endless opportunities to fill many an album of treasured memories.
Local guides, Local culture, Local knowledge, and Local expertise.
We are a homegrown local safari operator who insists that our safari guides be local because it simply doesn't make any sense to explore the Serengeti with a foreign safari guide.
Best decision we ever made..!
At Shrike, we endeavor to match like—minded guests with each other.
A birder will go on safari with her fellow birder, as will those with a keen interest in photography or another special interest. First-timers to Africa will be guided differently from old-timers
Your safari guide is not only a wildlife expert but a diplomat, a patient listener, a leader, and a caring friend.
We select our safari guides for their discerning eye for even the smallest detail, as well as for their sincere friendliness and dedication to personal service—ensuring an incomparable wildlife experience in an atmosphere of warm hospitality.
You're assured of an enormous degree of personal attention and the best safari experience.
It is particularly heartwarming that so many returning travelers pen long letters of praise for their safari guide, each guest thinking that their particular safari guide must certainly have been the best in the company!
