The Safari Awards 2011

With over three thousand safari lodges, camps and mobile safari operators in Africa, there is a need to differentiate between those that provide an average or bad safari experience and the few who exceed expectations. It is not a question of luxury, but of the 'safari experience' from your arrival on a remote airstrip to the revelation of the wilderness and how it works by your professional safari guide. Accommodation and cuisine are a vital element to the enjoyment of any safari but the aim is to identify the safari companies that provide the best overall safari experience, regardless of expense. The purpose of The Safari Awards is to recognise excellence amongst the very best safari lodges and operators in Africa. With nominations from over a thousand luxury travel professionals, hundreds of readers of Conde Nast Traveller, Tatler, Brides and Travel Africa Magazine you can be rest assured that any safari business nominated for a Safari Award is amongst the best in its genre. Finalists are amongst the top 3% in Africa and the Safari Award Winners are unquestionably the best, their reputation earned through excellence, recognised by people who know what they are talking about.

A wildlife safari is a unique experience that many can only dream of doing once. If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity you should select the safari camps, lodges and operators with care to ensure your experience is not spoilt by bad guiding, bad food or uncomfortable accommodation. By selecting a Safari Award winner, or finalist, you are unlikely to be disappointed.
