Travellers that travel alone know that it can be hard to find and join a safari tour that fits their schedule or to find buddies to travel with. As the first front-to-end ecommerce platform in the African safari industry, the new online Safarisharing platform brings together individual travellers on safari trips in East-Africa.
We aim to introduce the sharing principle to the East-African tourism industry in favour of a positive customer experience. Our aim is to generate additional and sustainable business for the safari industry that has been under pressure for a long time. By bringing innovation, Safarisharing counteracts the inability of the safari industry to match individual travellers and small groups for existing safari departures.
With the Safarisharing platform you can book a seat in unique safari trips. We offer a reliable solution, a better price for everyone and great travel companions. Our safaris range from classical game drives to safaris with educational character moving in the fields of conservatory and cultural heritage in the East-African region, namely Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda with the ambition to expand further. To our local suppliers we offer the chance to use their spare capacity and unused seats of their safari vehicle to generate additional revenue. You haven’t tried it yet?

“We aim to gather travellers from all over to nourish on the beauty of Africa. In this digital age, we will fuse the perfect combo of innovation and travel through honesty and passion”.
