The Open Africa safari collection
offers life enriching accommodation
with top safari partners and and in South and East Africa. Each of our selected private game reserves, safari lodge partners and tour operators offer authentic Africa safaris with exciting close-up big 5 game viewing on open safari vehicles. At the heart of all the experiences are a minimum two game-drives per day with experienced rangers to view lion, elephant, and other African wildlife in their natural habitat.
Our agreement with all partners means that they will contribute a percentage of the income from each booking, at no additional cost to you, to help sustain the activities of Open Africa
. Contact us on email@example.com
to make an enquiry.
In addition, the Open Africa safari project
supports African wildlife conservation
by recording the incidence of flagship species across sub-Saharan Africa at each listed safari lodge at www.openafrica.org/safaris/
. It is the private game reserves and conservancies around national parks that are driving the re-introduction of species and expansion of natural habitats across Africa (and tourism is providing the revenue to make this possible). All of our lodges
are at the forefront of conservation initiatives across Africa. Join us and contribute to wildlife conservation in Africa.
Ultimately, the Open Africa
website will list all the national parks as well as the private safari lodges
, and will thus be a full repository of species occurring across sub-Saharan Africa. By showcasing best practices, the website will be a positive force for wildlife conservation.
is an NGO based in Cape Town, South Africa, with Nelson Mandela as its patron. For more than 15 years it has been promoting conservation and sustaining local African communities by helping them to market themselves as self-drive destinations for tourists looking for authentic Africa travel experiences. By promoting travel to these often impoverished communities, money is injected into local communities, jobs are created and the community sees the benefit in conserving the local fauna and flora for tourism. To date Open Africa has opened 61 travel routes with 2,600 tourism-related businesses (e.g. guest houses, adventure centres, etc.), which sustain an estimated 30,000 jobs. The ultimate aim is to cover the whole of sub-Saharan Africa with Open Africa travel routes.
