We just returned from Kenya and Rwanda and thanks to Pam at Rothschild Safaris we had a trip that far exceeded our wildest dreams. Pam was a pleasure to work with. Knowing nothing about Africa, I told her that within our two weeks we wanted the maximum number of safaris, a hot air balloon ride, and a gorilla trek. I gave her a budget that she respected and she planned an absolutely amazing adventure. Not only was each of the places we stayed in different from one another but each had its own specific charm. This was glamping with fine dining. At each place the managers and staff were warm, friendly, and kind. The food was excellent and the service was great.
From the moment we got off the plane in Nairobi and were met on the tarmac by our first contact, we were handed over from person to person and never left alone to fend for ourselves. Our driver Andrew in Nairobi and Sadee in Kigali were friendly and knowledgeable. Our guides Julius in Elephant Bedroom Camp, Milton in Ngenche, and Wilson in Encounter were fantastic. The hot air ballon ride was amazing and the gorilla trek was an experience that can’t be described.
Considering that our trip included 6 places to stay, 3 shared shuttle flights, and a commercial flight from Nairobi to Kigali,, it all went off without a glitch.
Once again, thank you Pam and thank you Meggan for answering my many questions and emails and for being friendly and patient with multiple phone calls. This whole adventure from beginning to end has been a trip of a lifetime thanks to you.

We had the most incredible time on our safari trip. Rothschild Safaris did such an amazing job choosing locations, camps, and guides for us. Our trip to Tanzania has been our best trip yet! We are looking forward to booking a future trip with Rothschild. You have found customers for life. Would like to give special recognition to our Arusha safari guide, Mohammad. He did an excellent job of educating us on Tanzanian culture as well as all of the animals we had encountered. All of the guides were great, but Mohammad really stood out and became a fast friend of ours. We feel so fortunate to have been able to experience such a beautiful country. We are so grateful to everyone at Rothschild to putting together such an amazing trip!

Review Courtesy of Jennifer and Roger Hoyt (who don't have Google Accounts but were adamant their review be posted!)

When we first talked with Pam, she asked pertinent questions as to what we were looking for, and within 2 days we had our itinerary. It looked wonderful - but it was only when we were actually on the trip that we realized what an absolutely fantastic job she had done, interpreting our hopes into an absolutely wonderful experience. The travel details were seamless and we were blown away by the incredible job that Pam and Victoria did for us! I cannot say enough about Pam's ability to translate our (somewhat vague!!!) plans and hopes into an absolutely incredible experience. We have told lots of people about her all throughout our travels, and think she may be kept very busy!!!

My husband and I chose Rothschild Safaris for our first African adventure and the entire experience from the planning to accomodations, guides, transportation and food were far beyond our wildest imagination and expectations. No detail was left to chance, and we had absolutely nothing to worry about from beginning to end. We were treated like royalty wherever we were and every arrangement ran like clockwork.....never had to wait even one second for anything. We were amazed at the level of luxury in our tented camps and lodges and the friendliness and professionalism of the staffs were impecable. We had told Rothschld that we did not want to be in a large group and wanted to explore the animals and scenery at our own pace. We consequently had our own private guides and drivers throughout the entire safari and yet still were able to meet other "glampers" at dinners etc. How wonderful! We could not have asked for a better experience! Thank you for the trip of a lifetime!

Stride Review

Based in Colorado, Rothschild Safaris is an award winning boutique Safari travel company. They expertly match travelers to trips based on interests and budget, often creating fully customized itineraries that suit the customer’s interests and budget.

What Makes Rothschild Safaris Stand Out?

Rothschild has made a name for themselves, over the 30+ years that they’ve been around, providing boutique luxury African safaris. The travel experts that work with them are Africa and safari specialists. And one of the primary differentiating factors of Rothschild is their ability to craft personalized and custom safari tours.

They also offer a slew of family friendly tours that are specifically designed to be unforgettable for all ages. While they are known mostly for African safaris, Rothschild also travels to the Asia Pacific region and South America.

Who Will Enjoy Traveling With Rothschild?

Affluent travelers who are interested in working with a travel specialist to create a customized tour - and particularly if you are looking for a safari.

Rothschild specializes in crafting unforgettable and personalized experiences in the luxury travel space. If you are seeking to explore the wildness and wilderness with a glass of champagne in one hand and your camera in the other, Rothschild could be for you.

Top Destinations

Rothschild safari has been offering customizable luxury safari trips in Africa for over 15 years. In the year 2015, they expanded to offer safaris in the Asia Pacific region, Australia, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, and Antarctica. All trips have a strong focus on local wildlife.

Rothschild Safaris Travel Style

Rothschild Safaris offers customizable itineraries and luxurious accommodations. With Rothschild, after a tiring game drive, you will find yourself relaxing in a luxury camp opening to private verandas. All trips are planned and paced out according to your needs and wants.

Why Choose a Safari with Rothschild?

Their intimate knowledge of safaris and Africa travel make them some of the most qualified to craft your next customized African safari.

Selecting Rothschild means you are also selecting the experience of working with an expert travel planner to help with making your entire trip to your specifications.

Rothschild Safaris provides private luxury, guided, and customized safari trips. They  work with you to customize a trip according to your budget and the desired level of comfort seeked. While the main focus is luxury, there are several more budget friendly options available through Rothschild as well.

From Rothschild Safaris

Rothschild Safaris specializes in custom safaris in Africa along with several other select wildlife-based destinations around the world. For years we've been winning accolades from Conde Nast, Travel + Leisure, and other luxury media brands.

We have a direct line to the best guides and a strong on-the-ground network to ensure client safety and a seamless itinerary. And due to our strong relationships and purchasing power, we can secure the best pricing for the best guides and locations.     

WE ARE TRUE SPECIALIST

With over 30 years of experience of doing what we love most – planning journeys – we consider ourselves true specialists!

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT

Mention a lodge, hotel or destination and we have more than likely been there. Collectively we have traveled on hundreds of trips and experienced camps and lodges from the low end right up to the ultra luxurious – in our opinion that’s the only way!

DON’T HOLD OWNERSHIP IN ANY LODGE, CAMP OR SAFARI COMPANY

This means we are completely unbiased and free to recommend any lodging in Africa for you; unlike dealing with lodges or safari operators who are trying to sell you on their “own” camps or lodges, no matter how unsuitable this may be for you.

MAXIMIZE YOUR TRAVEL DOLLAR

We provide expert advice on where to save and where to spend. 

 

How We Work

We know best how to match travelers up with the very best accommodations that suit their budget. BUT that is only one part of the equation. It’s the little details (things that many travelers don’t even know are possible) that we are great at including in our travelers’ trips. We don’t usually give out our little secrets, but to give you a sneak peak of what we may offer – a private dinner on a barge in the middle of the Zambezi River is one of our all-time favorites. But no more said on this now as we rather not spoil what we love to do for you!

Our First Phone Call

We always start with a phone call and a blank slate. The goal of our first conversation is to get to know you. We will ask you questions about your travel style, where you have travelled in the past, your specific interests and your intended budget for your safari. After we have worked through this process we will both have a better idea if we are a good fit.

Getting Down to Business

At this stage we find out if you have a specific trip you are interested in and set travel dates. We offer our advice on the best locations depending on when you are planning to go, the best months to travel, and continue to narrow down your options to specific areas and dates. At this point, if you decide you would like us to plan your trip, we then proceed with obtaining more specific information and collect an upfront non-refundable deposit of USD $200* which will be applied towards your trip.
