Wildlife Conservation Organizations
With over 60 years of combined wildlife conservation safari experience – and over 60 years as members of the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA) – our goal is to offer accredited AZA institutions the most exciting wildlife conservation safari destinations in the world. We continue our commitment to wildlife conservation, through support of both in-situ and ex-situ programs, along with community development initiatives, in countries within which we work.

On Safari
What our travelers are saying
“Africa is more than we ever dreamed. Your planning was extensive and thorough, down to the last detail. Our local guides were extremely knowledgeable and pleasant to be with. And the execution was unbelievable–despite moves to multiple locations, some quite rural, everything came together without a hitch. Our accommodations and food were first class, even while camping out in the Serengeti. We can’t thank you more for such a thoughtful introduction to this amazing continent.”

“My dream destination has always been Africa! As we prepared to go, Safari Professionals provided us a Safari Guide with detailed information on everything we would need to know and provided us a picture of the guide who would be meeting us at Kilimanjaro Airport. Our guide, David, watched out for our personal safety at every moment of this incredible journey. He started the trip with us as our guide, but became our dear friend along the way. At the end of our Safari, David dropped us off to catch our plane to Zanzibar.”
Barb Adams
“This safari experience exceeded my wildest expectations and I can’t speak highly enough of Tom LaRock and Safari Professionals for making all this happen. In Cape Town, my daughter and I stayed at More Quarters, where we were treated like royalty, had the best tour guide and met some amazing people along the way. I don’t know how to top this experience, but we will be making plans to continue our travels to Africa and make more dreams come true! Thank you for helping make my lifelong dream become a reality!!”
