Experienced Guided Safaris

Tupo Africa Safaris Co. is proud to offer expedition safaris. We do understand that there are several tour operators running trips to the same destinations as us. Which tour company to go with is an important decision to make when planning your trip. The following are some of the reasons that Tupo Africa Safari Co will be your best choice. With a professional reputation of organizing trips, Tupo Africa Safaris Co. prides itself on giving you the best advice and suggestions when choosing a customized, tailor-made private trip to fit your dreams.


Tupo Africa Safaris Co. has a proven track record with excellent safety. We take every possible precaution to ensure your safety. Our safari guides have extensive training and education regarding viewing wildlife, vehicle safety, and personal comfort.

We run all of our own trips

Many companies that offer a huge number of trips contract out with other companies to run the trips where quality/personalized services cannot be guaranteed. We limit the number of different trips we run specifically so that each trip can be of the highest world-class quality.


We offer trips at a competitive price to other safari companies because we minimize our overhead without compromising the quality of our trips. We have something to satisfy anyone's budget. You have the option to choose a wide variety of trips; anywhere from a budget camping safaris to a luxury safari at 5-star hotels.


Tupo Africa Safaris Co. employs the best guides in the business. Our guides are experienced, informative, professional, safe, fun, and enthusiastic. All of our guides speak English very well.

Vehicles & equipment

We provide quality safari adapted 4 wheel drive vehicles with a window seat for each passenger. Pop up roof hatches on these vehicles facilitate an unobstructed open-top viewing for the photographers. We have quality tents and other camping equipment for those clients either choosing a camping safari or mountain climbing.
