About Us

Who we are

So who are we? Well, we are a team of people in the know (about travel). And we’re passionate about detail and service. Combine these, and you come out with our one simple, sole purpose – to encourage and indulge your curiosity about Africa and to ensure that your time away is perfect.

We have put in the miles to find some of Africa’s best off-the-beaten-track destinations, and we pride ourselves on an intimate knowledge of how each safari in our portfolio matches the needs of different families. We don’t just book holidays; we craft an adventure that will give you a lifetime of memories.

Sustainable is our middle name, and when we visit camps and lodges, we take the time to understand what they do to support both the environment and the community. We believe in being a business for good, and ensuring your safari in Africa has a positive impact.

We know that it’s incredibly important to spend your time off well. We’ve been there. It’s why our founders (who were presented with this exact problem in the early 2000s when trying to plan their own travels) went on to create Belo Luxury Safaris. So it’s safe to say that your precious time off is safe in our hands, because we understand how every moment counts. You don’t want to miss a single thing – down to the last song before the sun sets, being played on a battered piano in our favourite hidden cave bar in Zanzibar.

Our People

Meet Our Team
People who care. People you can trust. People who speak from experience.
Belo safaris experiences are, of course about the place. But they are also about the people. Not just the people who you meet along the way, but those who helped plan your trip and are there for you every step of your great journey.

Our Africa Safari Experts share a handful of traits that set them apart from the herd: they love Africa, they are well travelled in Africa, and they are very good listeners. To become an Expert, they must grow their specialization one destination at a time, through firsthand travel experience.

Why book with us

We are African.
Based in Nairobi, our team of experts are all born and raised in Africa. We spend our own holidays on safari and understand what goes into making every trip a once in a lifetime experience.

Our bookings are flexible and refundable
With our groundbreaking Belo flex(link) cancellation terms, you’ll receive a 100% refund on your trip should you change your mind – for whatever reason – at least 30 days before you depart.

Our trips are bespoke
With us, nothing comes off the shelf. When you enquire, your Travel Expert will create something entirely unique. And just for you. Your trip will be tailored entirely to your tastes, needs and preferences, meaning no two trips will ever be alike.

we are good with unusual requests
Nothing is off the cards (well, almost). Tell us what you’d like to do and we’ll do our best to make it happen. A gourmet meal in the crater of a volcano. A scavenger hunt through the grasslands in the Mara. All you have to do is ask

Your Money stays in Africa
As an African company we ensure 100% of the money from your safari stays in Africa supporting local communities and conservation projects, making a difference long after you return home.

We take sustainability seriously
Even despite the difficult times we’re living through, it’s never been more important to look after the world we share. From offsetting our own trips to tree-planting projects and supporting sustainable properties and hotels, we’re working hard to create a better world.
