||Note for travelers to Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls:
Please note that due to the current political unrest in Zimbabwe and the new sanctions imposed by the government of the United States of America, Africa Safaris has temporarily discontinued all safaris to Zimbabwe. The safari itineraries and travel guides on Zimbabwe on Tulipweb.com are now simply for future research and planning purposes. Africa has very beautiful destinations and an alternative safari to another safari country is easily available through our website's country travel guides. Should you require more information and updates on the events in Zimbabwe, please visit the State Travel advisory website. All travel and safaris to Victoria Falls are now redirected to Botswana and Zambia. Botswana has an excellent reputation as one of Africa's most stable countries and has an abundance of wildlife. Please contact us for information on how we can help you arrange a safe and comfortable itinerary to Africa's beautiful Victoria Falls through an alternative safer region.

Jambo Safari Enthusiasts!
Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our safaris. We would be pleased to help you plan your safari to East Africa, Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean islands such as Zanzibar & Seychelles. We've had offices and representatives all over Africa for the past 8 years and we opened a branch office in San Diego, California in September, 2002. Having lived both in the USA and Africa, we can relate to your worries and concerns about traveling to Africa in light of the current world situation. A trip to Africa is not your average vacation or holiday, it's a life-changing, refreshing and enriching experience, and may just be what some people need right now to drench away the everyday stress and get away from the News headlines for a while. For our guest's safety we are constantly monitoring each region. We wish to help you plan a safe and comfortable safari. The main reason we are in the African Safari business is because we have the know-how on making your safari a pleasant and memorable experience, and we take this aim very seriously. On each departure, regardless of the length of trip you book with us, we have specially prepared safari documentations which highlight safety measures while on safari and in the cities and provide general travel advice, to prepare you for your travel. There are daily flights from USA to Europe on British Airways and KLM, and from there you can connect to a flight to the top safari capitals of Africa - it's all very simple to organize and we take care of everything for you. Basically, once you land at your destination, you are transferred straight to a hotel for an overnight, early the next morning you take your flight from the city out into the best game reserves or beach holiday destinations. Traveling through Africa all our life, there was this tranquil feeling about safari life that made you feel at peace when you're in the midst of the game reserves than when you're living and driving around in the big cities. While on safari you will have a guide with you throughout and when you are at the safari lodges and beach hotels the staff and management will look into your every need and comfort.
Every guest that goes on a wildlife safari with Africa Safaris has direct radio call access from their vehicle to our headquarters and a 24-hour emergency cell number they can reach our Duty Managers at. If there are any particular worries you may have and which you need us to address, simply call us toll-free 1-888-80-SAFARI [1-888-807-2327] for USA & Canada only, or send our USA office an e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com - we would be delighted to help answer your questions.
We encourage you to look through our travel guides and keep in touch with us on how your safari search is going. Our Safari Specialists provide a wealth of expert knowledge and advice on safari planning, and it's all yours to take advantage of.
Thank you for your time, we hope to welcome you to Africa soon.
Kwaheri ya kuonana [swahili: farewell, see you soon!]
