Safari Professionals since 1994

About UsEstablished in 1994 by local wildlife enthusiasts Mark Garzancich and Celeste Greenblatt, Taga Safaris soon became the market leaders when they introduced the Tailormade Safari concept to the world.

We have hosted many VIPs and Celebrities over the years and have built a solid reputation with the number of repeat guests we have, some having now booked 27 safaris with us since our inception.

We pride ourselves on the 5 STAR SERVICE that we provide to our guests – every detail, from air and roadAbout Us transfers and accommodation to game drives and other activities will be taken care of for you. All you have to do is ENJOY the spirit of Africa with us. Our aim at Taga Safaris, besides our commitment to nature conservation, is to provide our guests with the ultimate African wildlife experience. To ensure this only the best wildlife areas and lodges have been selected and guests are transferred between destinations by scheduled and chartered aircraft so that you may spend the maximum amount of time in the wilderness. Guests are accompanied by experienced guides and rangers at all times who will be at your service throughout your entire safari. We hope to have you along on an unforgettable safari that will bring you back time and time again.

Mark and Celeste have literally spent thousands of hours in the bush taking pictures and making videos, some of which have now appeared on NAT GEO WILD’s show “Caught in the Act”

Why Plan and Book with us?

We are one of the oldest and most Experienced Safari Operators for the Southern African Region. Launched in 1994 and innovators of the “Tailormade African Safari Concept” we were also the very first Safari Company to have a website on the Internet which we launched in January of 1997.

About UsOne of the most important things when working with a Safari Consultant is their knowledge and experience they have. Well, we live in Africa and have been going on Safari since 1965. Wildlife is our Passion, always has been and always will be and we continuously visit the regions we operate in to keep up with changing events and trends. Besides that, you deal directly with the people who built Taga Safaris. With Us you get The Real Deal from extremely Experienced people.

We know that today’s traveller has become extremely internet savvy and do a lot of their own online research thinking it will be better for them to plan and book their Safari online and will be saving money by booking direct. Nothing could be further from the Truth. See our Price Guarantee.

A lot of our loyal repeat guests (some from as far back as 1997) do a lot of research online, even contacting the lodges and establishments direct for more info and even making a provisional booking but letting the lodge or establishment know that their agent (Taga Safaris) will be the one confirming it. Why? Because of the reasons stated above.


We CANNOT emphasize it more. This is Africa and you do not want to get lost.

About Us

You PAY LESS when booking your entire Trip with us.


  • A lot of Folk have the misconception that by booking their Safari direct they are saving money, nothing can be further from the truth. As a Safari Operator we do not add on to the published rate, we earn our keep from commissions paid to us by the establishments we work with.
  • Being based in Africa we cut out the middleman and due to our number of years in business and volumes we are able to put together complete itineraries that are anything between 5% and 15% less than if you were to book it through an International Travel Agency not based in Africa.
  • Even your International and Domestic flights can be booked cheaper with us due to our associate booking system. See Flight Bookings.
  • When paying by Credit Card we DO NOT charge a surcharge. However we will give you a further discount if paying by EFT.
