We do things the right way - we believe that if you do something, you do it properly! And that is especially true with our private and / or photographic safaris in Southern Africa. We use only highly trained safari guides rather than ordinary tour guides who may know, for example, only a few species of antelope. And that's why we don’t expect our guests to travel with 40 other travellers in a large tour coach but in a top-of-the-range 4x4 vehicle or in our spacious safari van. We call this 'comfortable adventure'… Prefer to travel without a guide but want everything arranged? This can be done with one of our self-drive safaris. Please peruse our website to find out more about the tour packages we can arrange for you.
The van Eijk family: "Our first big trip with the family but Tailor Made Safaris organised it down to the final details. Thanks to their comprehensive travel book and GPS we always knew where we were."
