Welcome to Discovery Safaris

Me and Rhino10 Deon Kruger your  professional pilot &  wildlife guide Discovery Safaris is a small family run privately guided safari operator, established in 1990,specialising in personal tailor-made designed itineraries-privately guided-photographic-fly-in safaris. As Discovery Safaris, we have guided and observed wildlife through every month and season in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya and Rwanda.

Discovery Safaris was started because of a passion for Africa and its raw beauty and an intense desire to conserve and to share it with the rest of the world.  This passion was not sparked by paging through wildlife magazines or by watching hours of nature programmes on television, but by the opportunity that was given to me from a very young age to experience Africa’s wildlife first hand.

Before I even dreamed of Discovery Safaris, I had the selfish ambition to keep Africa a secret to myself, to quietly immerse myself in the wildlife areas as often as I could.  I thought that the less people that visited these areas the more likely Africa’s wildlife would thrive.  But with age comes understanding, and I now understand that if Africa’s rustic/wild beauty is to be preserved in the ever expanding urban encroachment, we need to share Africa with as many people as possible.  

Visiting Africa will not only bring you into contact with a rich, diverse and complex natural environment, but you will have an opportunity to come into contact with many different cultures.  I am certain that you will only be left with warm memories of the hospitable people that you meet on your safari.

After visiting Africa, you will return home with a wealth of new experiences, with a storybook full of memories, and a hard drive loaded with visual keepsakes.  But most of all, you will return home a changed, renewed person, and hopefully have a new perspective on the need to preserve our beautiful natural heritage!
