Why Choose Us
We are true specialists
With over 30 years of experience of doing what we love most – planning journeys – we consider ourselves true specialists!
Been there, done that
Mention a lodge, hotel or destination and we have more than likely been there. Collectively we have traveled on hundreds of trips and experienced camps and lodges from the low end right up to the ultra luxurious – in our opinion that’s the only way!
Don’t hold ownership in any lodge, camp or safari company
This means we are completely unbiased and free to recommend any lodging in Africa for you; unlike dealing with lodges or safari operators who are trying to sell you on their “own” camps or lodges, no matter how unsuitable this may be for you.
Maximize your travel dollar
We provide expert advice on where to save and where to spend.
What our travelers say about us
It was amazing! Truly the trip of a lifetime!
The trip from top to bottom was perfect; the places we stayed, the coordination of transfers, people meeting us to move us to new locations, the camps, the food, the people who cared for our every need. The whole experience was perfect.
Rothschild was an ideal choice for our trip. We wanted a custom experience and very small, out of the way camps and that is exactly what we got. The choices of camps and the travel between the camps was handled very well and we enjoyed every minute of our adventure.
We had individual attention at each of the four tent camps we visited. We thought we had found the best guide at the first camp and at each of the next stops we found that we felt the same. Each was knowledgeable, connected to our approach to viewing and experiencing the sights, and careful to ensure we were comfortable and well taken care of. Very good communication about the plan for the day and thoughtful in choosing our daily activities.

“We have just returned from our dream holiday and wanted to drop you a note to say a massive thank you for everything you did. We had the most amazing time. All of your organisation was superb and the wedding was fantastic. I did not have to worry about anything! From the moment we disembarked, we were greeted and taken through customs like VIP’s, which was so good as we were travelling with kids. Ulusaba was amazing and I honestly cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work in getting this dream trip organised in less than a month. As promised, I have attached a photo from the wedding day. Everything arranged was exactly what we wanted. Thank you again. We will most definitely be recommending you guys to all our friends.”
“Best trip of our lives, hands down. It is such a rare occurrence when one gets a glimpse of heaven!”
Nadine & Jerry
“Everything was perfect. Every step of the way we were met by your representatives, smiling and happy to help. It was seamless. From airport to airplane to camp, again and again, perfect. The camps were well selected for the time of the year and comfort. The food was fantastic, the camp personnel great. We saw so much game I fear an unattainable standard has been set. You look at the cost of the trip, smile and say to yourself, ‘It was well worth the expense.’ There is no greater tribute to Rothschild Safaris.”

“Our trip to South Africa and Botswana was even more than we could imagine. From the moment we landed in Cape Town until our last day in Botswana, it was a fabulous adventure. We had a totally seamless experience. Everything went so smoothly, which allowed us to enjoy each and every moment with no problems. We are in awe of Africa!”

Evelyn & Gary
“We are still reeling in the absolutely fabulous memories we’re left with from our trip to Tanzania & Rwanda! Our trip was truly incredible and we thank you so much for making it happen. Words really can’t describe the majesty of our experiences and the wonderful places we visited.”

“Rothschild Safaris was amazing! They came to our rescue and salvaged our family safari that was originally booked through another tour operator who just closed their business just weeks before our trip. There were 13 of us – grandparents down to grandkids. A large group to accommodate at the last minute in July in Kenya! But Leora Rothschild pulled it off due to her great relationships and contacts throughout Africa and all areas of travel. With just about two weeks before our scheduled departure we called her in a panic to discuss our situation and she immediately started calling Africa to get an entirely new trip booked. We all ended up having the most magical family experience and are already starting to plan our next safari…with Rothschild Safaris of course!”
– Carol & Julian ~ Hoffman Estates, Illinois
“Nothing could be improved. I love the fact that their service is so organized with a booklet you take with you [on safari] with all the details you need, plus contacts, etc. All the travel tips and luggage ideas were great! Really enjoyed the personal service of a smaller organization!”
– B. Sorrell & S. King ~Willetton, Australia
“Your expertise and attention to detail is much appreciated and will be utilized again when we make arrangements to return to Africa in the future. So often today it is difficult to find knowledgeable, dedicated people whose interest goes beyond the money to be made. Judy and I have found one such individual in you and are comforted in the knowledge that we can depend on many returns to Africa arranged by Rothschild Safaris.”
