Meet the Busanga team

Busanga Safaris have been successfully arranging safaris for clients since 1999 and have enjoyed a steady growth in our safari activities and diversification of our destinations. We run things with care and attention to detail, fully insured and bonded for our guests safety and financial security.

Our main criterion when choosing a safari destination is the wildlife which we will encounter. The camps that we use were selected because they appealed to us when we stayed there as guests or friends and because they offer good guides with extensive local knowledge.

We really care that our guests have an outstanding safari that very often results in them returning for future expeditions. As testament to this we arrange around half of our safaris for repeat clients, or through personal recommendations, in addition to new clients who come to us through our website or from advertising in publications such as BBC Wildlife magazine and increasingly by word of mouth and a growing reputation.

In addition to the various small group set date safari ideas that we offer we can also arrange safaris that are tailored to your requirements. Just let us know what you have in mind and your budget and we will come back to you with some suitable itineraries.


Founder-safari consultant and guide. 
Ask Tony what got him into doing what he does and you might expect a profound answer, but the answer is refreshingly simple and honest, and a metaphor for how he runs Busanga safaris. READ MORE

We hope you agree that this website is full of extraordinary wildlife images. The majority of the images we have used were taken by members of our team or our guests who consistently come up with amazing results . 

Of course we have also used some images provided by the individual camps that we use in our safaris and some wildlife images provided by pro photographers especially where they are relevant to the safari experience these include Dana Allen & Mike Myers. Also our friend, skilled guide, and very talented pro wildlife photographer Grant Atkinson.

The list of our guests who have contributed is long and I am very sorry if I don't mention every one, but we would like to especially mention the following:
