Signature Africa offerings are premium, fully planned itineraries that provide an enriching, in-depth look at the history, culture, and natural heritage of a destination.

We care for you

Our guides, ground logistic teams and personal concierge are on call 24/7 to assist you throughout your journey, meaning you are in our hands from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. Whilst travel may be at the center of our business, we are also well-known for going the extra mile on behalf of our clients. When you book with us, you are guaranteed an extra-ordinary experience.

Life changing Journeys

Travelling opens the mind and is a learning experience. We believe our guests experience life-changing journeys with us as they are exposed not only to new landscapes, cultures and ecosystems, but also to new ways of viewing the world, our place in it and, ultimately, its sustainability. This is not only for our guests that travel with us, it equally has a good impact on our staff that are proud to do their job every day and support their families. We also work with and support both directly and indirectly the communities we operate in.

Expert Guides

We believe that there is much more to an African safari than being driven around in a vehicle while passively viewing animals. In combining the ultimate safari with an expert guide, we create the complete journey, where experiences, knowledge and passions are shared and where a standard safari is transformed into an extraordinary one. The quality of your guide, quite simply, makes or breaks your safari. All our guides are naturalists with exceptional experience and who know the African bush intimately and have an amazing knowledge of the African wilderness and its people. Their appreciation of the diverse cultures of the world and the needs of their guests allows them to deliver the ultimate safari. Our team of top safari guides present Africa to you in a unique manner, sharing their passion and knowledge with you and leaving you with an unforgettable experience that will last you a lifetime.

Luxury Safari Vehicles

Signature Africa maintains a fleet of specially outfitted 4-wheel drive Stretched Land Cruisers providing for maximum flexibility, comfort, and wildlife viewing. Your private safari includes exclusive use of this vehicle with no mileage restrictions and unlimited game drives for the duration of your safari. Our spacious Stretched Land Cruisers are the most ideal safari vehicle and come equipped with a total of seven seats for guests with each one having a window view, and pop-up roofs and wide-sliding windows that allow for uninhibited expansive views of East Africa’s best wildlife and landscapes.

Finest Safari Lodges

Signature Africa partners with some of Africa’s finest safari lodges offering a brand new take on African aesthetics, authenticity and luxury. Think exquisite lodges and sumptuous tented camps set in prime locations for both comfort and game viewing – you will feel as if you are in the true wilderness, without missing out on the all important feeling of indulgence. With well-appointed en-suite bathrooms, elegant furnishings, fresh crisp linen sheets, warm blankets and hot water bottles for chilly nights, and a spacious private deck with a plunge pool, wonderful for watching the animals pass by, accommodation like this is far more luxurious than you would ever imagine a safari lodge/ tented camp could be!

Luxury flying safaris

Signature Africa arranges bespoke guided flying safaris to all safari destinations throughout East Africa and beyond. Flying some or even all legs of your safari is a great way to reduce travel time, especially for those planning a safari within limited time-frames. We can arrange for a seat on a scheduled flight mostly operated with an 11 seater caravan or exclusive charter flights with the C208, C210 or the most recommended PC-12 that is more comfortable. You may also choose to have a scenic flight with a helicopter a Eurocopter EC 130BE.
