Safari Ventures

Photo:

This eight-year-old outfit, which specializes in safaris in southern and eastern Africa, puts a special emphasis on guiding. The majority of guides are second- or third-generation natives in the areas they work, are multilingual, and have a specialty, among them, anthropology, ornithology, sociology, and political science. Safari Ventures chooses lodges that provide cultural heritage educational opportunities for clients, such as the cluster of huts at Songwe Village, a traditionally-styled settlement at Zambia's Victoria Falls.
