About Us and KANABO Safari Group

All over the world space for intact eco-systems and humans to exist in harmony are shrinking.  These spaces have become islands in an ocean of human encroachment. Africa is still blessed with a variety of exceptional regions which truly makes provision for the preferences of each individual.

Johan and Sandra, owners of KANABO Safari Group, have been taking friends to these regions for the past 21 years. In 1993 we started exploring Africa, in our heartland, the Kalahari “the land of a thousand sunsets”. This took us over the border into Namibia, Johan’s country of birth and Botswana, the jewel in the African crown. 

KANABO Safari Group is not just a safari, it is an experience. We made a conscious decision that we want to offer experiences and not just safaris. That meant personal involvement and knowledge of our product as an experience.

As we saw more and more of these regions we knew that we had to bring friends to experience it. We traveled extensively to experience these regions and places so that we can recommend them to prospective visitors and friends. Zambia and Tanzania became part of what we wanted to include in our portfolio of experiences.

The Kalahari, Namib desert, Okavango Delta, South Luangwa National Park, Serengeti and Ngorogoro Crater, Victoria Falls are well established and known names in the travel industry. They have their names up on the silver screen of travel, as icons that have truly deserved their reputations.

Our experiences take you to these icons but also to places like Mabuashehube, Mesum Crater, Mameli and Khaudum Reserves, Ipupa and Augrabies Falls, Khutse Game Reserve, Tankwa Karoo National Park to mention but a few these exceptional places existing in coherence with the big names. Lesser known but big in conservation, preservation and stature.

“Our sense of beauty was shaped by a thousand African sunsets” 

We have 20± years experience of taking friends to these sunsets. We know where to stop to get the best view. We have guided in excess of 500 sunset experiences into Africa. Let us take you with, be it your first or 100th trip. This time it will be an experience.

To proof that we are not just a safari or tour operator, we are also founder members of  Kanabo Conservation Link.  Kanabo Conservation Link (Registration No. 91495) is a non-profit organization that aims to establish a link between conservation, the general public and business by identifying reputable conservation projects in South Africa, Namibia and Botswana that is in need of marketing and financial support.  Kanabo Conservation Link provides the platform to promote and facilitate effective communication between these role players and to provide an opportunity for them to contribute to nature conservation and the preservation of Africa’s natural resources.
