for discerning travelers
Extraordinary Journeys is a mother-daughter run company specializing in creating unique, custom-built safaris to East and Southern Africa and other unique safari destinations around the world. We emphasize first-hand knowledge, personalized service, and social responsibility. Our team has helped thousands of clients plan their dream safaris.
We will work with you to craft a personalized itinerary that fits your interests, budget, and travel style. From accommodation to transportation and activities, we will help create your ideal trip, taking care of everything so that your only job is to enjoy your extraordinary journey.
We combine decades of experience and personal connections to operators, owners, managers and non-profits with the most up-to-date information on properties, guides and management. We know our product and we apply that knowledge to your personal taste to create the perfect experience for you.
We are with you throughout the entire course of your safari; from the initial itinerary-building process, to providing you with all of the appropriate documentation and information before you travel, to being available to you 24/7 while you're on your trip. Your comfort and happiness are our responsibility.
We want you to have a real sense of the places you visit. Instead of visiting a village that feels contrived and uncomfortable, you can visit your guide’s family or visit the village in which your property's staff members reside. Every interaction should be genuine and a learning opportunity.
We work with small luxury properties in fabulous, remote locations that not only have great guiding and game-viewing but are eco-conscious and have close and supportive relationships with nearby communities. Our priority is to give back and be a positive presence in the communities in which we are involved.

Our wedding and honeymoon was magical!! We’re still on cloud 9! I have given your name to a few friends that are excited to see Africa/safari for their next big trip. Thank you so much for all your help organizing this amazing trip that we will never forget. Many many thanks."
The trip was absolutely AMAZING! From the moment we arrived in the airport until our flight home, everything was perfect. The resorts were very well managed and the staff was friendly and eager to please. Every staff member knew our names and went out of their way to match our interests with appropriate activities. Thank you so much for helping us to make this trip possible. It was truly an amazing experience and we are already dreaming about our next trip to Africa.
We just got back from our Africa trip and it was FANTASTIC!!!! Everything went off without a hitch. All the transfers, hotels, and planes went off according to schedule. We want to thank you again for all the work and the great trip you planned for us.
