Why book with Wild Frontiers

Wild Frontiers is a specialised tour operator at the forefront of organizing safaris into East, Southern and Central Africa. We’ve been doing this for over 25 years, so we really do know how to tailor-make the perfect safari for you.

Our operations

We do not just “sell” safaris – we operate safaris, camps, lodges, boats as well as run our own fleet of vehicles with our own guides. This means you are a Wild Frontiers guest, on a Wild Frontiers trip, where in majority of the cases our own staff are taking care of you. It’s our people on the ground who make our company – we believe they are the best in the industry.

Our operations in Tanzania and Uganda are all fully licensed and offer public and personal liability insurance. We are members of AUTO – Association of Uganda Tour Operators, TATO – Tanzanian Association of Tour Operators and ATTA –African Travel and Tourism Association.

Our vehicles are purpose built for the job in hand and are approved for use by the local authorities.  All guests have comfortable window seats – and plenty of room for taking photos.  Some are open, others with roof hatches for game viewing with 360 degree views. Each vehicle has a fridge and inverter for charging cameras ‘on the go’.

We know the roads, seasons, capabilities of vehicles, timing of journeys etc  and make sure that your safari does not miss out on any highlights due to a poorly planned itinerary.

In some countries we use the services of partner companies. Our choice is vital – we have known many of them since the 1980’s, when John was guiding trips himself. We know their standards, commitment to detail and integrity.

The personal touch

When we discuss your safari with you, we welcome chatting on the phone, or face to face, so that we can design your perfect safari – having travelled to the regions personally. It’s beneficial to discuss the detail.

We have full 24hour access to key people wherever you are travelling, and you in turn have 24 hour access to us. This won’t happen when you book on a website. We are available 24-7. We are real people, and we care.

Our travel designers will tailor-make the perfect trip for you and ensure you really get what you want – after all everyone’s idea of a perfect holiday is different and we want yours to meet your every expectation.

Our clients and what they say

We’ve organised and hosted trips for film crews from across the globe, including BBC, National Geographic and the Discovery Channel. Celebrities we’ve taken on safari include President Bill Clinton(Ngorongoro, Tanzania), River Monster’s Jeremy Wade (Murchison Falls, Uganda) and Joanna Lumley (Nile River, Uganda) – how absolutely fabulous! SA celebrities we’ve hosted include Nataniel, Patricia Lewis, John Robbie and Michelle Garforth who all summited Kilimanjaro with us, and work closely with Kingsley Holgate – our very own ‘modern-day’ adventurer.

Historically we have arranged some pretty special trips, including the first disabled person and the first HIV positive group to summit Kilimanjaro, as well as the first person to walk backwards up Kili for the Guiness Book of Records, and most recently Paraglide a team off the top of Kilimanjaro.

“We have been using Wild Frontiers for our travel arrangements into Africa since 1994, as we have found them to be the most efficient, reliable agency, and able to “make things happen” in the most remote parts of Africa. I can highly recommend them.”

David Bristow – former Editor, Getaway Magazine
