Why African Portfolio?

Someone recently asked us, “Why should we choose to work with African Portfolio? What sets you apart?” This is really a personal question because working here is personal. We really love what we do and we know what we’re doing.

  • Diane in Mana Pools where it all began.

    Besides being in business for 30 years, we have lived, traveled and worked in Africa for decades. This gives us unique insights as experienced professionals, locals and guests. We know the places to see and things to do because we’ve literally been there and done that. We understand what it feels like to fly from New York to Kilimanjaro. We’ve jumped into Devil’s Pool and floated over the Serengeti. We know how to get from Timbavati to the Okavango Delta, and from the Masai Mara to Zanzibar. We can recommend restaurants because we’ve eaten there, camps because we’ve stayed there and hikes to take because we’ve taken them.

  • Victoria at the Ngorongoro Crater.

    We begin by making sure that we understand your dreams of Africa, and tailor-make your itinerary to meet your expectations with skill and understanding that a century’s worth of combined experience brings. If you fancy an adventure, we can share our personal stories of walking safaris, canoeing, rafting and much more. Enjoy gourmet food and wine? We have lots of insider tips on restaurants and wineries and know the best gourmand kitchens in the bush.

  • Vanessa on the Chobe River.

    We care deeply about Africa, so we give you practical guidelines that underscore the importance of low-impact travel. We will encourage you to be a mindful guest in Africa. We respect Africa, its animals and people and we hope that you will too.

  • We know that a trip to Africa is a significant undertaking, and we just want you to get the best value for the time and money that you choose to invest. We are not affiliated with-, or incentivized by any lodging or business in Africa, so we are free to combine, or mix and match whatever

    we know to be in your best interest.

  • We openly take pride in our customer service. Logistics may seem confusing, but we know the ins and outs. Choosing the right accommodations can be overwhelming, but we can guide you because we know which are most appropriate for you, and why others may be unsuitable.
  • We are proud to say that most of our clients are either traveling again (and again, and again) or have

    come referred by others who have been on an African Portfolio safari, and we’re happy to have you speak with any of them. We revel in their high praise, not only for their ultimate experience on safari, but for our expertise and attentive support leading up to it.

  • We prepare you thoroughly with personally tailored information pertaining specifically to your unique itinerary. This means our clients are consistently the “best prepared” when they arrive in Africa.

We are all dreamers, adventurers and romantics, so think of us as the first guides you will encounter on what will likely be one of the most memorable adventures of your life. Safari Njema!
