Planning Your Private Safari

Your Safari – Your Way

It’s Fun, It’s Simple and It's Free!

Over the 27+ years we have designed and conducted safaris, our travelers have helped us understand that a successful expedition has three distinct and critical stages: thorough planning and design; meticulous pre-departure preparation; and unsurpassed delivery of the safari itself. As with all worthwhile enterprises, effective and thorough planning is the base upon which successful safaris are designed.

We simplify your safari planning through our exclusive interactive process. This confidential conversation helps you identify your interests, needs and expectations and makes it easy for you to determine all your priorities. We discuss everything from the best times to visit Africa to your personal dietary needs. And we thoroughly explore any questions you may have regarding what is perhaps the most important element of your safari - your health and safety. All of this helps you make the best choices as we work together to design your private safari itinerary. And please don't hesitate to schedule our conversation during evenings or weekends.

Starting your safari plan is simple - just let us know when you'd like to get together via phone. We will quickly schedule your call with Tom LaRock and begin to create your personal safari plan. You may contact Tom via email at or call him at 336-776-0359 or 800-779-2146.


  • The best time to start planning your safari is 12 to 15 months before your departure. That insures that we have the widest variety of potentdestinations available to meet your personal interests. However, we can help you create your safari within a shorter period of time, if that is most convenient for you.
  • The number of travelers on your safari is up to you. Because your safari is designed just for you, you determine how many people may share your adventure. Most of our safaris are created for one to twelve travelers, with the average being six.
  • Please expect your initial private safari planning conversation to take approximately 30-45 minutes.
  • Our goal is to provide you with your prelimnary safari plan within a week of our conversation. There are times, however, when it may takes us a bit more to fully explore all the options that may be available for your safari.
  • Your safari plan will include detailed recommendations that will meet your priorities, along with guaranteed prices and provisional confirmations of your accommodations. We always confirm the availability of accommodations before finalizing your preliminary safari plan so you may be confident that the accommodations we offer are actually available. However, prices and provisional confirmations may only be available for a specified length of time.
  • After discussing your personal safari plan, we will continue the private safari planning process, including revised safari plans, until you have received everything you need to make your decision on your safari.
  • Ready to start planning your safari? Please contact us here or call us at 336-776-0359 or 800-779-2146.
