Tim Lapage, the founder of Safari Experts, comes from a rare breed of adventurers. He brings the highest level of expertise because of who he is: born and bred in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley, with generations of roots in Australia. He has created over 3000 safaris in the last 20 years and taken thousands of people to Africa. He spends over three months a year in Africa, flying his own plane, to visit personally the camps, lodges and experiences we recommend. The rest of the year, when not in Park City, he travels in South America, India, Antarctica and Australia and New Zealand to do the same.
Simply put, he knows how to achieve what others can’t.
The list of people he has met along the way includes luminaries such as George and Joy Adamson, creators of the Born Free story; Jane Goodall, the word famous anthropologist; Beryl Markham, author and pilot; and Donald Kerr and Sid Downey, founder of their own legendary safari company.
“Tim has a knowledge and understanding of Africa, which only someone who was born and lived there can have.”
