What makes the difference when you book with us.

What motivates you to travel is deeply personal, at Gecko Safaris we understand that. Our purpose to create meaningful travel experiences comes from getting to know you and how you want to see African destinations.

Safety and trust

When you travel with us, you can be assured that we have you covered in your booked destination. Your trip will be financially protected, and we keep up to date with all the latest government travel advice. You have the flexibility to change your plans ahead of your trip, if needed. Your specialist will always be on hand, aided by our invaluable local partners, while you’re away.

Local Knowledge

Our specialists at Gecko Safaris know their destinations inside out. They’ll help you see the main attractions in an alternative light and introduce you to places others might miss. Practically, they understand how things run and we pay attention to all the small details for our clients.

Handpicked accommodation, guides and experiences

We go further than any local tour operator to find the experiences you want to have. Our specialists share recommendations that they’ve tried and tested and can vouch for themselves. If you want reassurance for how to travel safely, they’ll have the answers. We don’t book accommodations before experience them and we know the best rooms and the best view of each lodge in our recommended destinations.

Tailored to your interests

From the first conversation from the Gecko Safaris Team, you can rely on your specialist to create your trip exactly as you’re imagining it. We’ll make sure you travel in a way you feel safe and comfortable, with a choice of lesser-visited routes, smaller boutique stays and privately guided experiences.


At Gecko safaris we specialise in, group tours, family tours and  privately tailor-made safaris guided by some of Africa’s best pro guides. These guides give you another level of knowledge, fun and enjoyment when on safari, as well as allowing you access to some of the best areas and contacts in the business. Our sister company based in Nairobi is made up of handpicked guides who are known to be the best in Africa.


We support numerous conservation and community initiatives across Africa, and through promotion of Donate to Entebbe Zoo, rhino fund and pets’ shelter and recue, we get funding to the smaller projects desperately in need. We also handpick our safari lodges properties for the amount they put in to their own community and the wildlife surrounding it. Tourism in Africa contributes heavily to the survival of Africa’s wildlife and it’s people through fees which are donated and included in your bed night cost.


We are one of the few companies in Africa with professional indemnity and liability insurance with AIG. On top of that we offer flying doctor (air ambulance) to make your trip more comfortable.  for further details just ask your Travel Designer.
