Unsurpassed personal services

Your clients are met at the airport by our representative, and similarly seen off on departure. At the hotel a knowledgeable host or hostess will assist with their check-in and safari briefing. He/She will be available for them whenever they are in cities to help with shopping, appointments and packing. Should you wish us to protect your identity, this can easily be arranged. Airport representatives and host/hostess will wear your badge or uniform, itineraries will be typed on your headed paper, and we will place your stickers on our minivans.

We select only the finest Hotels and Lodges in the cities and out in the bush. Each is thoroughly chosen to reflect not only our own high standards but also the spirit of the itinerary in which it is used.

Primate Safaris and other stake holders involved in the promotion of eco-tourism activities are helping develop revenue for local, national and regional economies.
