Safari is a generic name for Journey in Kiswahili – it is a journey of the soul. Safari Experts is a word-of-mouth boutique tour operator that focuses on providing highly customized luxury travel. We have the vital insiders knowledge that it takes to provide journeys that only insiders can make happen, because of who we are.
Tim Lapage, its founder and owner, was born and bred in Kenya and has over 60 years’ experience – the ultimate insider knowledge. Safari Experts is one of the rare elite travel companies whose leadership spends much of the year in Africa and elsewhere around the world. They thrive on forging new frontiers and unearthing treasures to share with their clientele. This year in 2017 we have been to, or will be going to Chile, Patagonia, Antarctica, India, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia and Botswana to know and update on the many places they send their clients to.
Tana Lapage, Tim’s daughter, runs the Safari Experts office in London after a long upbringing in the industry.
“Tim Lapage IS THE Africa expert. He was born and bred in Africa, knows the best guides, and the owners of the best accommodations personally. He flies his own plane through Africa from top to bottom. He can get things done that others can’t.” Drew Kluska – “The Tailor”, Australia’s premier ground handler.”
Each safari journey is a group creation, informed by multiple perspectives and enriched by years of varied experience. Our fee based highly-custom design service provides you with pricing that has unprecedented value.
Safari Experts believes in the power of travel as a way to enrich oneself and the world, to enhance understanding, to become globally savvy, to preserve tradition and culture, and to impact and strengthen international economies. Travelers return transformed. Furthermore, we seek to support those suppliers who actively support conservation and sustainable community development in the continents we travel to.
No wonder Travel and Leisure magazine rates Safari Experts as one of the best on the planet!
