African Portfolio History on African Safari


African Portfolio specializes in the personalized planning of wildlife safaris and special interest tours to Africa. We offer programs to 15 different countries in Africa including: Botswana, Egypt, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zanzibar, Zimbabwe. We provide both scheduled, small group tours as well as customized itineraries to meet our clients’ specific interests and budget. African Portfolio was established in 1992 as the result of a ‘life changing’ journey to Africa, by founder and owner Diane Ebzery. After a 10-year career in management consulting, Diane dropped out of corporate life to establish a company dedicated to providing unique, customized and affordable adventures to Africa. Some 15 years later, the company has a reputation as one of the most professional operators in the industry. Since 1990, owner Diane Ebzery and her colleagues have traveled frequently to the national parks, game reserves, cities and towns throughout east, central and southern Africa as well as the Indian Ocean Islands. All the travel consultants at African Portfolio have professional degrees, any years of experience and additional travel qualifications.

We were awarded the Tanzania Tourism board Tour Operator of the Year honor for 2003. You will also find African Portfolio as a recommended tour operator in Fodors, the Lonely Planet, and Cadogans travel guides. We are active members of APTA (Association for the Promotion of Tourism to Africa) and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Our comprehensive website www.OnSafari.com is a recognized source for information on travel to East, Central and Southern Africa.
