Don’t just take our word for it

At ROAR AFRICA, we are proud of how our reputation has evolved - through word of mouth recommendations from guests who return again and again.

“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.”

“From stunning wildlife to incredible camps.

My trip with Roar Africa to Zimbabwe was beyond incredible. Deb is a genius: Talk about a magical trip, in every way. With the minimum of fuss, she seamlessly curated a full soul experience. From stunning wildlife, to incredible camps, to truly inspiring village visits, and oh oh oh the people, my people–how I have missed the grace, hospitality and warmth of the land and people that raised me. Our Roar Africa guide, Humphrey Gumpo, was wonderful; deeply knowledgeable, impressively competent, and infectiously joyful. I was smitten by the whole trip; a life-changing experience, and profoundly healing. It reminded me why I feel so Zimbabwean in my bones, blood and soul.”

“Forever grateful for your kindness, genuineness, and expertise

Everything you guys did added up to a trip that was not only rewilding, but reinvigorating, regrounding, and realigning. This is the way we want to be spending our time. This is the way we want to be spending our money. Everything we have currently is enough, but what we don't have enough of is time and travel. You gave that to us! After 30 years of traveling and two more years of COVID cancellations, this is the trip that brought us to that appreciation. It might be right-time-right-place, but I think it's also some ROAR magic.

It's a continent I have loved that now has bitten Jason, and you are a company that we're addicted to :) Obviously we are huge fans, cannot wait for the May 2023 trip, and are forever grateful for your kindness, genuineness, and expertise.

Lots of love from us!

Jessica & Jason

“It’s something I will never forget.

The exquisitely tailored experiences to meet every need; the off the tourist track special access — that ROAR AFRICA has is impossible to find elsewhere. It’s something I will never forget. On all my trips with ROAR AFRICA, I was introduced to the most amazing people who became great friends. To say the trips were amazing would be an understatement.”

“A perfect, hassle-free adventure.

“ROAR AFRICA’s journeys are no doubt the best.

As man originated in Africa, we feel something magical about this land; it seems like our bodies and souls are fuller here. This explains my frequent visits to the continent. Of all of these trips, ROAR AFRICA’s journeys are no doubt the best. Because of the people they have introduced me to, and stories they shared, I got to see not only the beautiful scenery, but Africa’s soul.”
