Liyatshwa Safaris


As the ‘African Renaissance’ spreads across Southern Africa, a new world of travel opportunities is opening up to the discerning traveler; an ancient world of unsurpassed natural beauty and cultural diversity, of incomparable romance and adventure.

And this is the world of Liyatshwa Safaris, tailor-making exclusive photographic safaris for individually-minded travelers and Special Needs Persons and groups. Whether you are attracted by the Southern Africa’s scenic splendor, its wildlife and cultural heritage, or whether you are planning the perfect honeymoon, adventure holiday, or simply the ultimate African travel experience, we have the firsthand expertise to arrange your once-in-a-lifetime African expedition. None of the distractions of large group, packaged tours: each of our itineraries is designed in conjunction with the traveler, taking into account their own specific interests and requirements.

Liyatshwa Safaris was founded by Prof. Marco Ravetto and Dr. Elisa Mecco and then joined by Mr. Alan Macleod with the dream of sharing the magic of Southern Africa with similar-minded travelers and explorers, and simultaneously contributing to wildlife management, nature conservation and cultural heritage in the region. These are the principles underlying every customized safari that we design.
