Why Odyssey Safaris?
Our focus is on savoring your travel experience. We want your journey to both thrill and inspire – something accomplished as much by encountering exhilarating wildlife, connecting with local tribes, and witnessing dramatic landscapes as your traverse the plains. These trips are designed to provide you with a fully immersive experience that can’t be replicated by any other tour company.
Our designs let you delve deeper, experience what’s behind the destination, the deep history, rooted culture, and vibrant wildlife that brings it all to life. Our belief is that travel on a smaller, more intimate scale makes for grander, more magical moments, and unforgettable memories. In this land of multiple realities, there is an Africa for everyone. Let us help find yours.
Family Focused First
We always say we design each trip for our clients as if we’re arranging it for a member of our own family… and that’s because we are. We take care of you from start to finish by sorting out all the details so you don’t have to worry about anything except enjoying your time with friends and family while exploring the beauty of Africa. From the support of our U.S. office as you plan, to our dedicated Africa team on the ground as you partake, peace of mind and convenience come standard throughout your entire journey. You will go home, having not only had visited some of Africa’s most iconic parks, but you will bring home new discoveries to share…. new friendships to cherish… and had incredible experiences that form lifelong memories.
We’ve Got Your Back
At Odyssey, our guests are an extension of our own family and your well-being is always the top priority. We know that booking an adventure during this time of travel restrictions and general uncertainty can feel risky.

Additionally, we’ve implemented numerous new measures in place to elevate our hygiene standards and protocols. The health and well-being of our guests and team has always been, and always will be, our primary concern. Our booking and safety policies mean you’re protected both before and during your travels with us.
Guides Who Do It Best
The key ingredient to a successful safari is your guide, and you will find that our guides quickly become part of your extended family during your journey with us. They are our greatest asset at Odyssey Safaris and are an indispensable part of your exploration. Their passion is sharing the natural and cultural wonders of Africa, while ensuring your complete comfort and safety. We recognize that a guide can truly make the difference between a trip being “average fun” and an “experience of a lifetime.” As such, we look for those with a special curiosity, a thirst for learning, and the passion to share the wonders of Africa with others. At Odyssey Safaris we focus on interpretation; not regurgitating facts from a script, but actually showing – not telling what makes our home special.
Quality Is Everything
We know it’s not every day you get to travel to Africa and we take that responsibility seriously. If we don’t personally think something is of great value or the best authentic experience, we won’t offer it. Our trips are designed to provide you with a fully immersive experience that can’t be replicated by any other tour company. We celebrate quality over quantity and provide our guests with exclusive opportunities, such as going behind the scenes with the DSWT, exhilirating night game drives, and much more. We take care of you from start to finish by sorting out all the details so you don’t have to worry about anything except enjoying your time with friends and family while exploring the beauty of Africa.
Sustainable travel is at the core of everything we do, which is why we strive to ensure the destinations we visit retain their natural character and cultural diversity. Providing you with unforgettable, exclusive experiences around Africa while maintaining a small footprint. Working with local conservation efforts such as the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and the Ol Pejeta Conservancy allows us to help protect these wonderful animals and ensure their safety for years to come. Our hope is that you will leave not as the merely intrigued, curious visitor you might have arrived as, but as a valued acquaintance who parts company feeling you are part of this particular place and its people, history, and culture.
