“It was some years back as I planned to travel with my family and friends to East Africa, that I was completely awestruck and inclined towards sheer excellence of flora and fauna on this earth. Planning of the trip was a nightmare to me as it took loads of my quality time and still was not sure of the best, with all agents speaking different commercial languages. Trip started with a bad note of having lost all my check in luggage when I reached the destination. Worst by managing it in the third world country with completely strange language and finally after 48 hours of hunger, anxiety and restlessness, got hold of it, thankfully intact.It was our dream vacation, a vacation we were eagerly looking forward to since years and let me tell you, it was going to make a reasonably good hole in my pocket. I had tried to plan it the best way and within the means. Perfect planning and execution alongside a highly qualified and experienced driver-guide drastically elevates the tour experience. I was trying hard to get all the pieces of the puzzle in place. Luckily I got hold of this silver certified driver guide whose name was Kim and was a gem of a person. One amongst just a handful available then.
An amazing experience we had. Parks, Lodges, People, Culture, Nature, Animals, Food, … everything. As if we lived in paradise. Something so unusual and fascinating that there was always a conflict between mind and heart as none could believe each other.
Indeed it turned out to be one of the best vacations we had and life time memories we cherish. Even after years and very often, it’s always fun to see the slide show and movie we took, only not to finish it till the end as we slip into our dreams of being there even now.
Along with those memories, I can still see the face of Kim, staring at me in surprise as to how do you know so much of these locations and spotting of game despite of being a novice where as a highly qualified person can’t.
I started sharing my experiences and went on to hear simillar from fellow travellers on return. Very soon, I could realize that they too had a great trip planned, very well priced, thrilled with the Afican experience and a good driver-guide, but something was drastically missing. All of them had visited Africa but did not see/know/understand Africa. Visa stamps on their passports and faint memories with some pictures was all what was left as the time moved on. The reason was, they all had been to Africa but not lived in Africa.
This is where I got passionate, highly motivated and www.AfricaSafari.IN was born. A promise with dedication to provide a complete and professional exhilarating solution … To make people know, feel, understand the flora, fauna, the very existance of this earth, surroundings and ones own-self. A committment to the nature, to the god's creation, to make my clients understand, appreciate and conserve the beauty, experience it and take back with them on return, a little piece of Africa in their heads and heart, to cherish it for their lifetime.
With the foundation of purpose laid strong, my subsequent visits to South Africa taught me the professionalism of executing the wonderful safari experience. Highly accurate and systematic approach to address innemurable topics. To add loads of value to the itinerary.
Later, I went on to acquire other and advanced professionals skills and qualifications, striving to make it better and better. And so I do, even today. My clients have also been a great asset to me, making me learn a lot and spending some quality time in the bush. With all the experiences behind me, I stand today, waiting to be your safari rafiki.”
