For your trip of a lifetime, you want to use the best operator. Booking through Wild Wings Safaris gives you the security of knowing that your safari is in the hands of a trusted, professional tour operator. We pride ourselves on being friendly, straight-talking safari experts with in-depth local knowledge.

Being completely familiar with local destinations and conditions is critical when it comes to putting together an itinerary that works – this is what sets us apart from other operators in the US or UK who may not have as good an understanding of Southern Africa as a destination.

We make it our aim to regularly visit each lodge and destination we sell, so we can monitor standards and give first-hand advice to our clients. We are not affiliated to any particular lodge or group of lodges, and can give honest, unbiased advice and comparisons when discussing your safari options.

We are a small team but, collectively, we have over 100 years’ experience in the African travel industry. We pay attention to detail and ensure that everything runs like clockwork, from start to finish. All of this means that you can relax and simply enjoy your trip.

Most of our itineraries are flexible. Many agencies will offer you a standard one-size-fits-all safari package. We don't do that. We listen to your requirements and specialize in putting together a tailor-made itinerary that is perfect for your budget and requirements. We have a few scheduled Kruger Park safaris with fixed itineraries, but even these trips can be customised.

It also costs less to book through us. We do not add any booking fees, and you will always pay the same or less if you book with us rather than booking with any other operator or directly with the lodge or hotel. Because of our established reputation with the lodges, a client of Wild Wings always receives the best possible treatment.

Did you find a similar safari cheaper somewhere else? There's probably a reason why it's cheaper. Find out why some safaris are cheaper in our handy guide to Comparing Safaris.

Still not 100% convinced? Please read through some of the hundreds of great reviews we have on TripAdvisor or SafariBookings.

We've been inducted into the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame twice, for being awarded Certificates of Excellence five years in a row – thanks to our very kind and loyal clients, many of whom return to safari with us again and again.

It would be correct to say that we do not sell safari products – we sell our expert consultants! Our expertise is what sets us apart. All our consultants are based in South Africa and travel regularly to the destinations we sell.

If you've found something cheaper, our best price guarantee ensures that you will always get the best rate from us for a specific lodge or itinerary. If you book everything yourself direct with each lodge, you will end up paying more, will have multiple different payments to make to different suppliers, and nobody in your corner to intervene on your behalf should anything go wrong.

We are very proud of our reputation for excellence and top-notch service. And we'll be more than happy to help you plan your dream safari.
