Specialty of our African Safari Trips


"What might our next travel adventure be…" you muse over a glass of wine with friends. The possibilities and dreams are almost as much fun as the real thing. Travelers are born dreamers, adventurers, romantics, our eyes and ears always tuned to the horizon and what may be waiting for us just on the other side. The cookie-cutter package tour has almost become obsolete, especially for the sophisticated traveler, who now seeks out truly unique experiences that combine the beauty and intrinsic fascination of the destination with an experience that is customized to their own interests.

At African Portfolio, we are committed to providing a safari experience like no other. Our mission is to provide unique and memorable experiences through nature-based travel that educates, entertains, inspires, and provides participants with opportunities to directly contribute to conservation. We pride ourselves on our dedication to quality, our commitment to client service, and our consulting expertise on travel to Africa. We strongly believe that our experience of living in and traveling throughout the region, is invaluable to our clients and we reflect this expertise in the tours we design. Collectively we offer 50+ years of experience in organizing safaris in Africa. We have visited over 300 hotels, lodges and safari camps in Africa and have first hand experience in many of the safari and adventure activities we sell including gorilla trekking, white water rafting, elephant, horse and camel back safaris, sailing safaris, and more. Our tours and safaris draw on the resources of highly respected professional guides, incorporate the leading safari camps, lodges and deluxe resorts and hotels, offer unique adventure and safari activities, highlight cultural and historical aspects of the area, and introduce clients to the local people of the land.

African Portfolio has a particular expertise in assisting travelers with "off the beaten path" and purpose oriented trips. As follows is a description of just a few of these areas of special interest.

Honeymoon Safaris

For a truly unique honeymoon, an African safari is the quintessential romantic adventure to remember... sage-scented breezes; the vast star-studded African night blanketing your luxurious canvas tent; the excitement of tracking elephant, lion and leopard; your vintage claw-footed tub overlooking the Zambezi River with a bottle of chilled champagne to accompany a smoldering sunset... African Portfolio has designed unforgettable honeymoons for hundreds of newlyweds - it is our pleasure to assist you in planning a memorable experience for the first part of your journey in life together.

Family Safaris

It is safe, fun and rewarding to travel with children in Africa. Africa is a treasure chest of adventure and learning for the whole family. African Portfolio has carefully selected destinations, hotels and safari lodges which offer the entire family a journey of discovery that will be remembered for a lifetime. Many of the selected safari lodges on our family tours offer specially structured and unique childrens' programs, which include a wide range of safari experiences with exciting interactive conservation learning opportunities. These are guaranteed to delight youngsters of all ages as well as teach them to appreciate and preserve our planet. Parents can rest assured that their children will always be safe and well looked after, both on and off the game drives. They will enjoy a program specially designed to give travel-weary parents a well-deserved break, keep the children happy and provide the entire family with a safari experience they'll never forget.

Food & Wine Safaris

Inviting vineyards carpeting fertile valleys, historic Cape Dutch manor houses, two oceans, Twelve Apostles, a burgeoning culinary celebration rooted in Cape Malay cuisine and the progressive, imaginative kitchens of South Africa's leading chefs. Our distinctive tours can take you on an artfully (and tastefully!) designed journey to the southernmost tip of Africa. To go to South Africa and have a remarkable wine-tasting and dining experience without really trying is easy: but our aim is to create a safari for food and wine lovers that can only be experienced by having experts with the right connections elevate the journey to an entirely different level. A wine and gourmet safari that promises not only a focus on the classic gastronomic offerings of South Africa, but dovetails innovative wine-tasting and dining experiences that are the product of a creative collaborative effort between African Portfolio, boutique vineyards, and the most discerning palates in the country! Not to be missed is of course the stunningly wild safari adventure which follows, where you stay at leading camps and lodges that have made eating in the wilderness perhaps one of the most sophisticated pleasures possible – combining the beauty of the bushveld, the excitement of unparalleled game viewing, luxurious accommodation and memorable meals together…

Mother Africa, the tawny continent, lies stretched before you in all its wildness, splendor and hope. Its future is shrouded in mystery; its past is written in legend. Come with us and feel the rhythm of its land, share in the beauty of its soul. One of our most popular trips is to combine the wilderness and wild with the sun and sea.
