“Custom is Key”
“Adding a zoo host to an off-the-shelf itinerary limits the experience. Having guided numerous safaris, I appreciate being able to share what Naples Zoo is doing in a country versus visiting with NGOs or naturalists we have no connection with that also speak to every safari. Safari Professionals has both the knowledge to customize a safari to fit your travelers’ high expectations and the flexibility to work with you to meet your goals and engage with your conservation partners in the field. What’s extraordinary is you get that customization at costs competitive with pre-designed tours. So, your guests get a more meaningful experience and an up-close connection to what their zoo is doing to help wildlife. Having been active in AZA since 1982, Tom LaRock understands the needs of our community and can help present your safari to potential travelers in person. I’ve had the experience of working hard to challenge companies and their preferred properties to get truly custom itineraries. Talking over my options with Tom made me feel like a kid in a candy store. That’s the difference Safari Professionals offers!”
