Dylan Brandt is a passionate professional guide and business owner who has a passion for sharing expert-guided experiences with his friends and guests alike.

Dylan began his career in the safari industry at a young age and quickly established himself as one of the most distinguished guides in all of Africa. Dylan obtained the highest credentials associated with professional guiding, a level of expertise achieved by fewer than 1% of guides in the industry*. These credentials cannot be obtained merely through study; rather, they are only awarded to individuals who demonstrate the sort of mastery that comes from both devoted learning and spending tens of thousands of hours on the ground guiding.

Someone once translated Dylan’s acclaim to a better-known hospitality industry by saying,

“Dylan’s like a three-star Michelin chef of safari”.

While in Africa, Dylan trained many guides on how to encounter dangerous game on foot as well as host and interpret special wildlife experiences for guests. He maintains personal friendships amongst elite guides, conservationists, lodge managers and land owners across Africa and Dylan’s mission is to connect his guests with these extraordinary wild places and passionate people.

After moving to the U.S., Dylan utilized not only these relationships with guides and lodges in Africa to found Brandt Safaris, but also leveraged his university education and personally designed a degree that combined Hotel Management, Food & Beverage, Natural Science, and Land Management to ensure that he could shape a true end-to-end, luxury experience.
