Why Choose us
to plan your safari?
In Search Of Africa was created, and is owned by Arthur and Lynda Allison:
"We have travelled to all of the destinations on offer in our Tours. We know the Safari destinations, camps and Hotels from first-hand experience, we know the Owners, Operators and Guides and, above all, we know our Africa.
Africa is not only our business, it is also one of our greatest loves. We never cease to be in awe of the power, thrill and sheer wonder of Mother Nature's African majesty.
We regularly visit camps and lodges, whilst also searching for new places that must meet our stringent criteria. We have a close understanding and working relationship with all the operators, guides, transfer and ground handling facilitators. This ensures that the entire safari comes together smoothly for you, and an incredible experience is achieved. We will help you realise your safari dreams".
The In Search of Africa team:
Arthur was born and raised in Zimbabwe and he has valuable hands-on and personal experience of all our safari destinations. He is a very keen nature conservationist, an active supporter of social upliftment and very passionate about the protection of Africa’s wildlife. He has been actively involved in these noble ideals for over 30 years.
His knowledge of Southern Africa is based on thirty years living with nature. He is a bush boy with an extensive knowledge of South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi.
When requested, he accompanies clients on safaris and his local knowledge in each of our areas has invariably added to the overall safari experience for our clients. Every year Arthur is responsible for returning to the camps meeting old friends and making new ones!
He follows up on the latest news and developments within the region and reviews any new lodge or camp that may meet our high standards for possible inclusion into our proposed itinerary for our Safari family.
Lynda has travelled extensively to all the safari areas that In Search Of Africa operate in.
She has an expert eye for all things luxurious including the finest camps, hotels, transport and transfers and has developed a complete portfolio of these essential services that make up the African adventure of a lifetime.
