A private guided safari is usually considered the very best safari holiday, led throughout by an expert guide and is exclusive to a private party; sometimes a couple but more usually a group of friends or family or extended family including grandparents
Guests on this type of African safari holiday enjoy a tailor made itinerary and fly or drive between a selection of small camps and lodges, which usually accommodate between 8 and 20 guests, with excellent resident guides, and in great locations with outstanding wildlife
Bushbuck Safaris is a small family company, established in 1984 by my father and myself, Boo Chrisp. At the heart of our philosophy is the belief that every safari should be unique, tailored to the dreams and expectations of our clients, but at no extra cost.
Whether visiting Africa for the first time, or a regular visitor, having inside knowledge about specific countries, wildlife areas, guides, operators, camps, lodges and retreats enhances every trip.
The reason for our success is that we know Africa. And I continue to renew and develop this knowledge by making regular visits to ensure that my unbiased recommendations are fully up to date.

A private guided safari is exclusive to you and hosted from the moment you arrive on safari to the finish of your trip by an expert safari guide. Perhaps surprisingly, a private guided safari need not cost any more than a regular safari.
There was a time when there were distinct safari seasons across Africa. But things have changed over the years and visiting outside the traditional seasons is now not only possible, but often desirable.
