- About Us
Safari Online was founded in 2005
The aim of Safari Online is simple: to offer a safari planning service that is rooted in personal experience and first-hand knowledge. Regular site inspections ensure our accommodation recommendations and travel arrangements are as good as we say they are, and we’re right here in Africa if you need real-time assistance when you’re on tour.
You can look forward to a seamless itinerary and real value for money. We travel regularly to double-check logistics and inspect lodges to ensure standards remain high. As for prices, Safari Online negotiates reduced rates on your behalf and we don’t apply any surcharges or fees. You’ll enjoy financial peace of mind thanks to our secure payment systems while our travel association affiliations guarantee your pre-tour deposits and our integrity.

MONEY MATTERS – BOOK YOUR TRIP WITH CONFIDENCE
We understand that people want to book a safari safe in the knowledge that they are dealing with a reputable travel company. That’s why we’re members of the Southern African Tourism Services Association (SATSA) and the African Travel and Tourism Association (ATTA). Membership means we are legally registered, annually audited, appropriately insured, and bonded – your pre-tour deposits are guaranteed in terms of the SATSA terms & conditions.
And with Safari Online as your travel partner, you can relax about paying online when paying South African Rand. We’ll bill you in the currency we are invoiced in (usually US dollars or South African rand) and our 3-D secure payment system ensures your credit card transactions are super-safe. You’ll personally authenticate your transaction before payment. When payments need to be made in U$ we require a bank transfer to be made into our U$ bank account here in South Africa. We then in turn make U$ payments to our suppliers.
We also stand by the quality of our tours and safaris, guaranteeing that your safari will meet your expectations. If not, we’ll gladly give you a credit toward a future trip! (This does not apply to unreasonable expectations that do not match the information that we have supplied.)
