In the spirit of Our Africa Safaris, we return home inspired by our Africa custom tours. Grateful for this exchange, we do our part to give back. From each safari’s proceeds, Our Africa Safaris contributes to Save The Rhino which supports their pivotal efforts to save the imperiled rhino population from extinction.
We also donate to the World Wildlife Fund, to sustain their on-going conservation efforts in Southern Africa. This exchange of spirit links our humanity.
We have known Jenny Richards for many years. Our Africa Safaris is definitely her true passion and it is very evident when she plans amazing vacations for her clients.
The “Spirit of Africa” safari Jenny customized for our small group of four couples was extremely well planned from beginning to end. From our initial air travel, then on to helicopter rides, bush plane transports, guided tours, and river boat rides, to carefully selected safari camps, every single detail was taken care of seamlessly.
This made for an extremely relaxing trip for us all so we could enjoy our environment without any worry at all. All four safari camps were unique and very special, and the extra activities Jenny chose were superb. The guides were unbelievable in their knowledge of the bush and its inhabitants, their communication skills, and their eagerness to please.
The final stay at Jao Camp was phenomenal—we did not want to leave! From the first day of our trip, each day just unfolded to more adventures and surprises, when we couldn’t imagine it would just keep getting better and better.
Thanks to Jenny’s expertise, the timing of our adventure in the Okavango Delta couldn’t have been better. Her vast knowledge of all of Southern Africa translates into having the best safari experience possible. We would highly recommend Jenny and Our Africa Safaris for an unforgettable trip of a lifetime!!

Gary and I have know Jenny personally for 20+ years and she has been our exclusive travel agent for that same length of time. She has planned trips to Mexico, Spain, the UK, all of Europe, Australia and beyond for us over the years.
She has recently started Our Africa Safaris and we were honored to be invited as guests on her first “Spirit of Botswana” adventure. She is from South Africa and had previously put together an amazing trip for us through South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe so we knew this one would be equally well done. We were not disappointed.
The accommodations at each camp were five star, the guides were knowledgeable, friendly and very accommodating to the needs of our group of 11 travelers. The food was out of this world and every day we were amazed at the new adventures she had planned for us.
In Chobe we saw just about every type of animal Africa has to offer and some we had never seen before. We flew in small planes from camp to camp and had views of Botswana that most do not have the opportunity to enjoy.
We were in the Okavango Delta as the waters were moving in from Angola so the mode of transport on each morning and afternoon safari was different. It could be a Land Cruiser, John boat or the native Mokoro depending on the water depth. The wildlife was diverse and we were able to see everything from a Black Mamba snake to huge herds of elephants playing in the rising waters and big cats lounging from the tree tops.
Jenny had everything planned to the last detail making our holiday stress free and it ended much too soon. It was another of the many trips of a lifetime she has planned for us.
