“We almost feel it was a dream.

We cannot put into words how fantastic our first time in South Africa and Botswana was. ROAR AFRICA’s curation, access, seamless execution and handheld service that lead to us never having to worry about a thing as well as ROAR AFRICA’s guides and their entire Africa-based team made this the most amazing and outstanding trip in our lives.”

African Adventures: The Greatest Safari on Earth

Safari implies a journey. That Assouline chose The Greatest Safari on Earth for their first-ever book on the subject is an enormous honor for ROAR AFRICA. The result is an ode to the vibrant history, craft, culture and, indeed, culturemakers – the people behind the places we know and love – in Zimbabwe, Botswana, Kenya and Rwanda. 

Photographed by Aline Coquelle, this is luxury travel in Africa, unlike anything you've ever seen. The visual dreamscape of The Greatest Safari on Earth unfolds across each page alongside the ground-breaking artists, musicians, sommeliers, designers and conservationists blazing a trail in the lands of their birth.

We hope that the voices, stories and triumphs chronicled in this incredible book, African Adventures: The Greatest Safari on Earth, will inspire a new generation of Afrophiles — to love, cherish and protect the continent's unique cultures, landscapes, wildlife and artistic heritage and to come to know better the people of Africa, whose graciousness, knowledge and wisdom are our perpetual inspiration.

“There is a language going on out there,
the roars, snorts, trumpets, squeals, whoops and chirps
that have meaning derived over eons of expression.
We have yet to become fluent in the language – and music – of the wild.” - Boyd Norton
