Deeper Africa has been named the No. 1 Safari Outfitter in the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2016. In an announcement made today, July 6, 2016, Deeper Africa received this top honor that is decided by the readers of Travel+Leisure Magazine.
Founded in 2002, Deeper Africa specialize in authentic and meaningful safaris to Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe. The owners, Karen Zulauf and Wil Smith have been exploring Africa for decades. They bring a fresh perspective on some of Africa’s most iconic wildlife parks, while also offering some of the most innovative new adventures available to travelers in the region. Wil or Karen personally explore every place in Africa before recommending it to their guests. “This award is a testament to the hard work of our wonderful and dedicated staff in the US and Africa,” says Karen Zulauf. “We also owe a big thank you to all of our travelers who have given us new ideas and suggestions, and who have voted for us making this dream a reality.”
Deeper Africa’s newest itinerary, Zimbabwe Conservation and Culture, was announced in January. Conservation & Culture has all the joys of a traditional safari, with great wildlife, magical terrain, and warm camaraderie. What sets it apart are real-life adventures. Travelers go on patrol with an anti-poaching unit. They meet Lion Guardians who mediate conflicts between lions and local communities, and they share ideas with wildlife conservationists who protect wildlife on the ground. The 10-day itinerary brings guests of Deeper Africa to Hwange National Park, Lake Kariba, and Gonarezhou National Park – lodging is at Gonarezhou Bush Camp, Somalisa Camp, Bumi Hills Safari Lodge, and Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge.
