Bucket list-style African safaris

Welcome to

Brandt Safaris

Brandt Safaris is an exclusive African safari trip planning and private guide service. We craft one-of-a-kind luxury experiences in Africa’s highly coveted destinations to showcase the most spectacular wildlife during the most captivating times of the year. If your imagination is as wild and free as Africa, we have the capabilities and trusted, local relationships to make those dreams reality. Brandt Safaris’ local network of upscale lodges and expert resident guides is rooted in decades of personal relationships, ensuring our guests have thrilling experiences that surpass all expectations.

Your Custom-Crafted Wildlife Safari

Our bespoke excursions stem from having been South African natives, expert professional safari guides, and lodge managers. We have thousands of hours of on-the-ground working experience in a variety of African countries. Our safaris are meticulously curated for each traveler to bring to life the most unforgettable African safari adventure. From epic game drives, birding adventures, walking safaris, and water-based expeditions, we will lead you to only the places we would go in our own time and destinations we have guided or hosted safaris ourselves. The safari we plan for you is tailored to your personal interests and desires, rather than a pre-packaged itinerary. The boutique nature of our offerings makes for a lifetime of incomparable memories.

We joined Brandt Safaris for our first safari and the experience was incredible!

Not only due to the beautiful scenery and landscape but what took the trip to the next level was the team at Brandt Safaris. The vast depth of knowledge the team had and hospitality was bar none. They allowed our trip to be unforgettable through their unbelievable focus on details. I would highly recommend them to anyone, no matter if it is your first or 100th safari! ​

Luxury with a Valuable social impact

We don’t simply offer luxury for luxury’s sake. With each visit, our guests support a critical conservation system, one where Africa’s wild places are being sustained by both safari revenues and the positive social impact of eco-tourism on local staff and their families.
