Since 1989, Zimbabwe-raised David Tett and his American wife, Carolyn, owners of Bushtracks Expeditions, have been hosting independent travelers and institutions like National Geographic Expeditions and the African Wildlife Foundation on authentic safaris to 35 African countries – adventures inspired by the travels of David’s youth.
Specializing in custom African safaris, Bushtracks Expeditions’ expert safari planners and its proprietary online safari planning tool allow travelers to build a safari around dates of their choice from over 400 carefully selected safari camps and lodges, and to get an instant quote online.
Bushtracks also offers a limited number of expeditions by private air each year on a set departure basis. These signature expeditions are hosted by experts, and employ private aircraft to weave together remote and spectacular destinations in a seamless, comfortable journey.
The magic of a concierge-serviced African safari has earned Bushtracks an unusually high referral and repeat traveler rate: with travelers returning to Africa as many as 13 times. From planning to operating the safari, Bushtracks travel experts combine their deep understanding of Africa with an appreciation for the sensibilities of the American traveler. The result is consistent “trip of a lifetime” experiences that are as exciting and authentic as they are perfectly comfortable.
