Benefits of having a Private Safari in Africa

Why a private safari?

A private safari offers ultimate comfort, convenience, flexibility and exclusivity.
When time is your most valuable asset, then a private safari takes away the hassles and provides an experience that is planned to your pace and personal interests.


What can you expect?

Private Guide

On most safaris, you move from camp to camp with a different local guide at each stop along the way. A private guide ensures cohesive learning and wildlife updates based on your shared experiences in each destination. You can plan the day to fit your own pace and also your particular interests. If you’re looking for birds or particular wildlife, a private guide will take the time to set up how the day will suit you and your group best.

Private Vehicle

Go at your own pace and on your own schedule.  Want to stay out all day?  Go for it.  Not sharing a vehicle with other guests gives you this flexibility.  Are you a photographer or avid bird-watcher, having your own vehicle ensures you’re not rushed and have ample time to set up the perfect shot or stop for every rustling branch as you look out for birds, something that may drive a first-time safari goer, mad.

Private Camps and Lodges

By booking a camp or a small lodge exclusively for you and the people you love means you don’t have to share mealtimes or campfires with other guests. Everything is catered to you. We can select and book just the right property for your safari – sometimes a 2-bed villa or maybe a 15 room lodge depending on your group size.

Private Planes

Booking private charters can help to create a seamless safari, taking away transit times and minimizing logistical hurdles. We can provide trouble-free, end to end charter experiences within Africa, from the moment you touch down until the moment you depart. Depending on group size and aircraft type, it can often be more cost effective to charter rather than connect between destinations with scheduled commercial flights.

Helicopter Excursions

From short 30 minute excursions to longer half day, full day and multi-day adventures we have curated some of the most exciting and creative trips utilizing helicopters. Take a quick flight past Table Mountain in Cape Town, over Victoria Falls, Botswana’s Okavango Delta and Tanzania’s southern Serengeti – just to name a few. View Mt Kenya by helicopter and visit a successful elephant orphanage, search for shipwrecks off the coast of Namibia and take a scenic flight around the great pyramids of Giza.

Experience “the greatest day” by incorporating a full-day helicopter excursion into your itinerary. See the sites of Cape Town all in one day or take a trip across Kenya’s Samburuland and the remote Suguta Desert and swim in the emerald waters of Lake Turkana before flying over huge flocks of Flamingos. For those looking for truly unique and customized experiences, multi-day helicopter excursions get you to Africa’s most remote destinations while having ultimate flexibility and freedom to explore.

Private City Experiences

We design experiences all across the African continent that connect you to people and places less known.  Our aim is to help you feel less like a tourist and more like you’re spending time with friends. Cape Town, Johannesburg, Cairo, Nairobi, Arusha, Entebbe and Kigali are popular cities for our travelers. Explorations based around art, food, wine, wildlife, culture and history are the basis for our private city tours. Gain unique insights from your expert guide and explore based on your interests in Africa’s bustling cities.

Above & Beyond
Review of: 3-Day Gorillas trekking and Batwa Experience
Sedrick went above and beyond to accomodate our request for an itinerary alteration due to our compressed time in Uganda. He also compeltely took care of scheduling our covid 19 testing and drove us to the site on arrival.

Our driver/guide Ben was also outstanding!

**We highly recommend using a porter during gorilla trekking as their are some complex parts to the trail/terrain. This also benefits the local people by providing them work.**

Seeing Lots of Animals and Uganda
The schedule suited my time in Uganda exactly and was a great opportunity to view some of the top wildlife and natural wonders of the country. Lodgings range from mid-range to near upscale and are in beautiful locations. Food is good and ample. My driver, Stanley, was expert at spotting wildlife and, very importantly on the Ugandan roads, a careful and skilled driver. You see various parts of the country on this tour, and due to distances, be aware you'll spend quite a few hours on the road. One thing they might add is an itinerary going into more detail ahead of time on each day's activity and suggested things to bring. I was concerned about the needed COVID test for return home, but they took care of arranging that, and it turned out successfully. Overall the tour was a real highlight and is highly recommended.

I went on an 11 day safari visiting Kampala, Jinja, Lake Mburo NP, Bwindi NP, Queen Elizabeth NP and Kibale NP. Communications with Ngoni were prompt and easy from the start. As soon as I made my booking, Sedrick contacted me through WhatsApp and guided me through the rest of the process. Leading up to the tour he made sure I was well-prepared to begin. He was always very clear and friendly. Service was exceptional. I had the pleasure of going on this safari with three members of Ngoni's staff - Sedrick, Nelson and Joel. These guys made my comfort their priority from the moment we met. Whether it was checking if I was okay with the accommodations or making sure I always had a bottle of water, I always felt like I was being well taken care of. Nelson is an excellent guide. His knowledge about the flora and fauna of Uganda was extensive, always able to answer any questions I had and was eager to teach - it's obvious that he has a great love for his country and it's environment and is eager to share this love with his clients. My experience with Ngoni and Uganda surpassed all expectations I had. Absolutely amazing, and thanks to the guys at Ngoni it feels like a new home - can't wait to come back and visit. Webale, brothers!

Sedrick was unique and stood out from the rest in the high quality communication he provided since the first inquiry. He called me to provide information about the itinerary and see if I had any questions even before booking the tour. We communicated through WhatsApp for any other questions that came to mind after that call. After picking me up from the airport, he and Pilot (additional tour guide) provided plenty of information about the country to give me some context and we started our long drive to the impenetrable forest. The food was delicious with many options; the accommodation was very clean with exceptional service; and the transportation from Entebbe to Bwindi park was very comfortable (although long). As a solo female traveler, both tour guides (Sedrick and Pilot) did an exceptional job at enduring I accomplished everything intended to in Uganda, and always made me feel safe. I highly recommend to book your safari with this company because the quality and professionalism will not let you down.

I was going on a gorilla safari with my friend and this was going to be the first ever safari for the both of us. Luckily, the communication with the office was super easy and we got answers to all of the questions we needed. The driver / guide (Sedrick) was very professional and funny and made our time very pleasant. Also, he had a proper knowledge of the local area close to the Mgahinga national park and he promptly spoke some 7 languages which we thought was super positive. The safari was surely the highlight of out East African trip!

My Team and I did a five day trip, including Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, Murchison Falls and Kidepo. It was truly an incredible experience. Our guide, Sedrick, was knowledgeable, skilled in driving in some challenging settings and just plain fun to hang out with for five days. The lodging was perfect, especially Savannah Lodge. The tents and beds were high quality. The views were spectacular. Meals were delicious and varied. I recommend Ngoni safaris Uganda with all my heart and soul!

Pilot May 28, 2019
Our six days trip was amazing. The driver/guide had an incredible knowledge of animal and bird-life and are so interesting to talk to. His driving skills through lashing rain and massive puddles was admirable! The cooks managed to produce varied and delicious meals from the kitchen, which we ate both at accommodation or roadside when we were travelling from one place to another . At all times we felt safe and well-looked after. All in all, an incredible experience, due not only to the abundance of wildlife we were lucky enough to see, but also to the great efforts put to have our Safari a better one . The safari was full of fun. Traveling with ngoni safaris is my life time memorable experience and I highly recommend it to travellers who would love to visit uganda or EastAfrica for holidays, vacations or Adventure.. Even five stars are too small .
