AFRICA SAFARI SPECIALIST
“I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up that I was not happy.” - Ernest Hemingway
Those words are just as true today as it was back when Ernest Hemingway shared his love of Africa! Being fortunate enough to live in Southern Africa for the past several years, including as family with our two young daughters, I can tell you first hand, we were just as excited waking up every morning to begin our new day’s adventure!
I often say it – it is hard to have a bad trip to Africa and most travelers return home happy with positive things to share with their friends and family. However and often times, travelers are not aware of what they missed or how much better their experience could have been! As a dedicated Africa specialist, I travel extensively to Africa to ensure I bring my clients firsthand destination knowledge and expertise. I work closely in building strong and personal relationships with our in-destination partners, hoteliers and safari lodges and camps – so that our clients experience an EPIC trip to Africa! Always ensuring unique and authentic experiences that others do not offer!
Nothing is ever cookie cutter or transactional with us - you bring your ideas, thoughts and dreams, and working together, we will tailor the PERFECT Africa vacation experience! It will be custom designed and tailor made to your lifestyle and wishes! We go out of our way to make the impossible possible and always seeking to exceed our client’s expectations! All the while making it a seamless and effortless experience from start to finish!
“The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa – for he has so much to look forward to.” - Richard Mullin.
It is hard to contain the enthusiasm I have for my clients traveling to Africa - whether it is for the first time or many times, no two visits to Africa are ever the same. Until you experience it for yourself, it is simply hard to describe it! I’ve had the privilege of designing bespoke itineraries for honeymooners, families, FIT’s, Wildlife Photographers, CEO's & Executives, VIP's and groups of various sizes all traveling together – including for meetings and incentives.
From East Africa to Southern Africa, from the Serengeti to Cape Town's Wild Coast, Africa will leave you breathless every step of the way. I look forward to having the honor and privilege to help design your dream trip to Africa - personalized just for you!

My Travel Experiences
And there were plenty of fun surprises such as spontaneously snagging that hard-to-get reservation at South Africa's top-ranked restaurant and arranging a fabulous picnic lunch perched high atop the most picturesque vineyard. Jay picked safari lodges that he thought would be perfect for us and they did not disappoint. Jay's attention to detail and desire to create the most perfect vacation for each client is clearly apparent.
Thank you, Pam for the kind words! It was nothing short of an absolute honor and a great pleasure to design your family's custom journey through South Africa! It is always a fun working with you and your wonderful family - thank you again for entrusting us with the privilege! With our sincere gratitude, Jay Ahmed
