Africa's Best Adventures Land Cruisers

The Best Custom African Safari

The majority of our adventures are guided by Altis Kriel, owner of Africa’s Best Adventures, or his son, Matthew – both of whom are Nature as well as Dangerous Animal Guides. We do our safaris in fully kitted and luxurious Toyota Land Cruiser SUV’s. These vehicles are as reliable as they come and the perfect machines for the unpredictable obstacles Africa might throw at us.

We overnight in selected lodges or camp in beautiful reserves and campsites. All locations are hand-picked based on experience to bring back the fondest memories in years to come.

For an adventure of a lifetime why not join us … we would be honoured to make your African dreams come true.

We plan your safari around your exact requirements. You might prefer staying in comfortable accommodation along the way, or maybe camping is your thing. We take care of it all, including preparing meals to suit your dietary needs. And our knowledge in African safaris ensure you experience the best there is to see as we travel through your destination of choice. Your peace of mind is of the utmost importance. And that’s what we offer you.


When planning an African safari things can get daunting. There are so many options available and you have loads of questions! That’s normal, and this is where we come in. Our privately guided, customised tours ensure you get exactly what you’re looking for. We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all safaris. Our assistance starts during the ‘dream’ phase. This crucial part of your planning process is where the magic happens. We will match you with the most suitable options available, and then plan the perfect safari with you. See us as your personal safari guide from start to finish!
