WE OFFER HEMINGWAY ON STEROIDS IN AFRICA’S SAFARI COUNTRY

LionJackalberry Aug 05-2


The Ultimate Safari, based in New Canaan, Connecticut, arranges uniquely customized upscale African safaris for discerning clients. We have been in business for the past sixteen years. Most of our clients come to us by word-of-mouth and some have repeated as many as three times.

Headed by long-time New Canaan resident, South African born author, wildlife photographer and conservationist, Dr. Les de Villiers, The Ultimate Safari offers custom-designed itineraries to fit the needs of every individual client.  We do not offer packaged or preset tours. Only destinations and properties in Southern and East Africa that meet our high standards after first-hand evaluation are included in safaris that carry our brand. 

While animals most definitely take precedence in all the safaris that we arrange, we fully agree with a pioneer in safari chic who said: "To view the animals you don't have to live like them." That is why safari country wins truckloads of awards from leading travel magazines for style and comfort in the wild.
