Aiming to provide unique and life changing experiences for their clients, GoExplore Safaris was established in 2015. Fully owner managed the business helps foster an appreciation for conservation, responsible travel and sustainability while at the same time creating long lasting memories for their customers. It is safe to say that this business was built for all of the right reasons.
With eight locally employed staff each safari can last from three days to a month depending on the client’s ambitions. However, on average their clients normally spend 12-15 days on a safari.
These are not general packaged safaris either, GoExplore Safaris are not generalists but are travel specialists with fine-tuned skills. Africa is one of the world’s most remarkable areas and they are committed to showing their clients the very best of it.
IN SAFARI ACCOMMODATION
In safari accommodation comes in three different styles depending on what the client is looking for.
Luxury Safari Tents: Still one of the best ways to get that total safari feeling. All luxury tented safari camps feature spacious canvas rooms with real beds and private, en-suite bathroom facilities. They often have butler/waiter service and dining is comparable with fine restaurants, with three and four course meals benefitting from the best views.
Safari Lodges & Permanent Tented Lodges. These can vary in size and style. Most lodges, especially in Kenya and Tanzania accommodate large numbers of people, with some properties having over twenty rooms. Like hotels, these lodges usually have complete facilities and swimming pools.
Adventure Camping. Not for everyone but lots of fun. Adventure Camping requires guests to assist with general camp duties and is great for groups wanting to get stuck in. Guides provide assistance, but an essential part of this type of safari is participation. People put up their own tents, assist in meal preparation and generally get involved. It is still camping in its purest terms and this means variable facilities.
All of the itineraries are tailor-made according to the amount of time a guest has available for their holiday, what their budget is and where their interests lie. This is a very customer-centric approach.
GoExplore Safaris rely almost exclusively on its past clients for referrals and future business and not any glitzy marketing campaigns. This reliance on word-of-mouth referrals from past clients is one of the major differentiating factors between GoExplore Safaris and others.
Additionally, they place a lot of care and attention into ensuring that each client proposal is perfectly suited to the client’s needs. They do not run automated computer models that simply spit out itineraries and suggestions but take the time to produce an honest, professional and well-priced proposal.
This year the owners are launching their foundation ‘GOEXPLORE FOUNDATION’ to give back to the community. This will continue the good work of serving communities and enhance on the work they have been doing with their partners for the last three years.
Their safari4Charity program has already changed the lives of many communities. In the past years, they have been supporting an orphan school in Masaka under this Foundation and have facilitated pupils with much needed scholastic materials and will continue to do so as well as being involved in other community projects.
