‘Journeys by Design opened our eyes to a world of experiences we never knew existed.’

Journeys by Design is an independent adventure and exploration company that curates a handful of tailored safaris to Africa each year. A Condé Nast eastern Africa expert and Travel + Leisure’s A List member, we were voted one of the top ten ‘super agents’ in the world by The Financial Times. The fact that our professional guides are all members of the elite APX Guide portfolio is a testament to our specialist knowledge and experience. At least 80% of our business is repeat or referred, which underscores the quality of the service we provide.

Rare or Classic, the choice of safari is staggering and can be overwhelming. Capable of delivering the most original and extraordinary of journeys for a range of travellers, from individuals right through to multi-generational families, it is our job to help you cut through the noise of the general safari industry.

Responsible for designing all our safaris, our four exploration specialists have over 65 years of combined guiding experience. Half of our sales team is located in and operates out of either Kenya or Botswana. Many of us grew up in Africa. As a result, we can design and deliver highly original conservation-driven safaris, allowing you the opportunity to explore and experience destinations and properties that suit your expectations best.

Our private safaris start at between US$1,500 and US$2,000 per person per day. Subject to the size of your travelling party, the destination, and the length of your safari, total spend usually starts at US$ 50,000 and averages US$ 80,000 per booking. If you would like to learn more about travelling with us, please contact our exploration and pro guide team with a summary of your motivations for safari-based Africa exploration.

We look forward to hearing from you.
