The Good Safari Guide, together with The Safari Awards are the first industry driven process to recognize and reward the achievements of those safari operators who exceed the expectations of their clients.

The annual Good Safari Guide is a printed independent directory of the winners and finalists of The Safari Awards, voted for by over 450 experienced safari specialist tour operators and 1,800 travellers, from Los Angeles to Tokyo.

Here you will find a selection of lodges chosen by the industry; each lodge has been voted for, or has won, a Safari Award. Each of these lodges is outstanding at what it does, be it a luxury establishment with a long history in a private reserve, or a mobile tented camp which remains only so long as to see the season change.

Contact the lodges directly, or speak to one of the independent tour operators detailed on the 'Experts' page for good advice, an intelligent itinerary- and a good deal!
