John Burdett set up Africa Exclusive with his wife Susan in 1990. During the last 25 years the company has become one of the world’s leading specialist safari tour operators. John says “Building Africa Exclusive has enabled me to indulge my love of Africa and the opportunity to share its beauty with thousands of other people."
Ross Cambray’s love for Africa began on a ten week journey through South Africa several years ago. His travels have taken him back to the Rainbow Nation, to the banks of the Zambezi River in Zambia, the depths of the Okavango Delta in Botswana, many different parks and reserves in Kenya, through the heart of beautiful Madagascar and even up to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
Paul Hawley has travelled extensively throughout East and Southern Africa. He recalls his very first safari sitting outside his lodge by the banks of the Zambezi River, when a two ton elephant appeared beside him, nonchalantly feeding from an overhanging tree before moving down to the river for a swim. “From that moment I knew I had fallen in love with Africa” Paul said.

There is a world of difference between one of our tailormade safaris and most package holidays printed in a brochure. Package holidays are usually designed to be as cheap as possible and of course involve large numbers of people doing the same thing. Our safaris use small, more exclusive and remote camps usually with guests flying in, and often virtually everything is included in the price. The experience is completely different.
Many of these small lodges and camps have broadly similar prices, and it is possible to arrange a superb safari holiday for between £6,000 to £10,000 per person ($8,000 – $13,000) season dependant, all inclusive. Realistically it is difficult to reduce that figure, and by including Botswana in peak season, chartering a private plane, disappearing to some magical desert island, or flying at the front of the plane it’s easy to substantially increase that figure!
