Thank you to Sean and Callum for making our last two trips to Africa so memorable and exceptional! As seasoned travelers to Africa, we are well acquainted with the bush and landscape. African Born Safaris has twice now surpassed our every expectation, from trekking with the gorillas in Rwanda and Uganda, to walking Pafuri in South Africa, to an epic safari in Botswana. We so enjoyed having Sean and Callum as private guides, their expert knowledge of the bush and passion for the wildlife greatly enriched our safari experience and allowed us to have a more nuanced, personal, and flexible vacation. We cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks to the ABS team, as always, and see you next year for another wonderful adventure!

"I would like to thank Sean Carter and African-Born Safaris for imagining, organizing and delivering an unforgettable experience for me and my 13 year old son. I feel deeply privileged to have had the opportunity to encounter Africa for the first time with Sean. It was amongst the most powerful, moving, perspective shifting, awe inspiring and magical two weeks of my life. And sharing it with my son was profound. And a special thanks to the Lunchbox fund for bringing us together. Knowing now firsthand about the work they do changing lives has left me inspired. Everyday was filled with encounters that enriched me in monumental ways, so much so, by day 14 I was only up to day 3 in my journal. And I wrote almost every night! Thanks for the trip of a lifetime."

We have been privileged to travel with ABS on several occasions with both family and friends. Each adventure provided us with once in a lifetime experiences - - a countless array of indelible memories from across Africa. Although all of our safaris featured an abundance of game and an array of incredible settings; world class accommodations; and flawless logistics; it was the Team’s incomparable knowledge of the bush and African culture, their gracious hospitality and care, and their joie de vivre that created such meaningful experiences for us. Notably, not only has the African-Born Safari Team been our exclusive trip planners and guides for everything Africa, they have become enduring, treasured friends of our family . . .

My family and I have traveled with Callum and African-Born Safaris more than half a dozen times, and every trip has been remarkable. From the initial planning to the execution, everything has been pitch perfect. They cater to every type of traveler and know Africa so well they craft ideal itineraries to fit every budget and interest. And their tracking abilities are outstanding. I can’t recommend them enough.

From our group, I would like to say “Thank you” to Sean and Amy for the adventure of a lifetime. Our Christmas safari was an amazing experience, which opened all of our eyes to the beauty of Botswana. Every detail was carefully planned as we moved between camps.The game viewing was so amazing with exciting sightings at every turn. Wild dogs on the hunt, lion cubs just out of their den for the first time, a leopard on the hunt, cheetah and hippo at the watering hole, giraffe and zebra sprinkled throughout the countryside. There was so much for us to see, to hear, to feel. Amy was a special addition to our group. She was lovely to be around; soft spoken with a depth of knowledge that added tremendously to our experience. Again our heartfelt thanks for an amazing trip. The Cardon/Mason Family

"We selected African-Born Safaris because we knew we would have an amazing experience in Tanzania due to Sean’s deep expertise in running safaris. And we did! From the moment we arrived in Tanzania, he made sure all arrangements of our accommodations, meals and safari experiences were perfect. We witnessed dozens of different species with highlights being lions, zebras, giraffes, elephants, hyenas and wild dogs. Sean brings to the traveler a deep appreciation of wildlife that stays with you and we look forward to another safari with African-Born Safaris"

"Oh my goodness Londolozi was insane. Really! My wife and I had the best time ever. James the guide and Innocent the tracker found every animal imaginable. It was literally one of the best trips I've ever been on in my entire life! Thank you African-Born Safaris."

"Our Tanzania adventure really did turn out to be the trip of a lifetime. We were so pleased with the itinerary and lodges you selected, especially the timing to get us to the right place at the right time for the Great Migration. Having you there with us as our guide made for the best possible experience: we could learn something new from you every step of the way, and not have to worry about the logistics. You are truly great at what you do: from your knowledge of the bush and the wildlife, to your expertise in the logistics and the lodges, and even right down to your good taste and good company -- you have got all the bases covered!"

"My wife and I do a lot of traveling for a living. We've been lucky to see a lot of world - but we both have said that our trip with Callum and African Born Safaris was the best trip we've ever been on! After talking with Callum about what we were looking to do on our safari, he tailored the trip around our interests and made it so incredibly special with not only his knowledge of the bush, but his genuine love and enthusiasm for the wildlife. From witnessing a beautiful leopard while on a guided walk in Pafuri, to unbelievable mountain gorilla treks in Uganda, these are memories we'll always cherish."
