Why we say Happy Day! Safe Safari!

Safety-Security-Situational Awareness

Traveling on Safari in Africa can be daunting. News of security issues, tourists whose travel leader is unfamiliar with the area, or simply trying to do it alone, may present challenges. Questions about safety may keep the otherwise adventurous traveler from Safari in Africa.

How my background and unique experiences in Africa keep YOU safe on Safari -

I have lived, worked and traveled all over East and Southern Africa - by myself! During my years working in South Sudan, an unaccompanied tour, receiving danger pay, I took extreme care for my safety. As I did when I worked in Manyoni, Tanzania - the only Westerner for a 100-mile radius.

Personally leading Safaris in Kenya and South Africa - that's me. Touring the beautiful parks in Uganda? Extensive travel and research in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar? Again, alone and safely!

My situational awareness on Safari is born from years of working and traveling, alone, in Africa and in the Gulf States, In addition, this includes having traveled through the world extensively as a solo traveler. In 2015, I was nominated into the renowned The Explorer's Club, honoring the safe expeditions, field work, and travels I have completed.

I also know what it is like to see some of the most endangered species on Earth in person, on Safari. I want you too as well! It is possible to realize the dream of seeing these precious creatures and to be safe! My unique background is why I started Flyga Twiga. I have an exceptional training and skill set, combined with a passion for African Wildlife, to help enable YOU to have a safe, secure Safari.

My in-country partners are  the best and safest local Safari providers and lodges - whom I know personally. While there is no guarantee of safety, regardless of where you are in the world, security was foremost in the selection of my local partners.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Happy day! Safe safari!
