We take you to an Africa that’s rarely seen, but deeply felt

What if …

  • You could wake up to elephants grazing just outside your window … and fall asleep beneath a dense blanket of black night studded with stars?
  • You could introduce your children and grandchildren to a world beyond their wildest imaginations, where new surprises that delight, astound, and open their eyes in whole new ways lie around every corner?
  • You could leave a legacy through travel — for the family that you cherish and the local people who’ve welcomed you into their hearts and homes?
  • You could finally say “yes!” to that bucket-list adventure … because when you work with a trusted safari designer, there’s nothing left holding you back?

At Make a Difference Safaris!, we turn those “what ifs” into a reality, bringing you face-to-face with the most magical and remote destinations in the world.

Connect to the land …

Connect to the people …

And connect to each other.


Get ready to embark on a journey like no other

Make a Difference Safaris! is a bespoke travel-planning agency that specializes in one-of-a-kind — and once-in-a-lifetime — journeys to Africa.

Our clients are seasoned world-travelers who are now ready to try something different … something truly life changing. They want to share the gift of unforgettable travel with the ones they love most — or they’re solo travelers eager to see the adventurous vacation they’ve always dreamed about come to life. And they turn to us to cut through the clutter; our expertise, demonstrated passion, and personalized approach make journeying to the most beautiful yet often most misunderstood continent on the globe a breeze.

We’ve forged a personal relationship with one of the most trusted, award-winning Africa safari outfitters in the world — Micato Safaris — so that we bring you only the very best.

When you work with Make a Difference Safaris!, you receive:

A Truly Personal Touch:

Work one-on-one with a dedicated safari designer who listens to your travel desires and is proactive about your needs. Every trip is customized and crafted with care. In fact, our clients often tell us that by the time they leave for their trip, their travel advisor feels like family. We’re incredibly proud of that.

A World-Class Safari Experience:

There are hundreds of safari outfitters out there … and we’ve vetted them all. Micato stood out from the pack, which is why we partner exclusively with this incredible family-owned company that delivers heart-stopping adventure coupled with refined luxury. We’re not the only ones singing Micato’s praises: they’re a nine-time Travel + Leisure “Best Safari Outfitter” winner.

Worry-Free Travel:

Even seasoned travelers are sometimes hesitant about traveling to Africa — when you work with a trusted, experienced advisor, you don’t need to be. We’re here to answer all of your questions and provide personalized guidance on the Africa travel experience. Plus, we only work with suppliers we know well and make safety a top priority. 

Our “Give Back” Guarantee:

One of our biggest reasons for working exclusively with Micato is because of their “One for One Commitment.” For every Micato safari sold, they send one child to school … for their entire primary years, 1st through 8th grade. We are proud to partner with an organization with such a strong philanthropic spirit.

Plus, we’ve made a commitment to protect and preserve the wondrous, wild nature of Africa as well. Make a Difference Safaris! promises to donate five percent of all earned commission evenly to these five outstanding wildlife conservation organizations: William Holden Wildlife Foundation, David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, The African Fund for Endangered Wildlife Kenya, East African Wildlife Society, and African Wildlife Foundation.

How can you work with Make a Difference Safaris!?

From beginning to end, here’s what our travel planning process looks like:

1. We get to know each other on a complimentary planning consultation call. We’ll discuss your trip vision, unique needs, and the “nitty gritty” details like your budget, group size, and possible travel dates.

2. Is it a travel match meant to be? If it feels like a good fit, we’ll commit to working together and discuss the planning contract and associated planning fee (which varies based on trip logistics).

3. Now the fun part begins! We’ll put together a few incredible options for you based on your specific wants and needs. We’ll continue to refine the itinerary until it becomes the safari journey you’ve always dreamed of doing.

4. We take care of the entire booking process for you — and if you like, we’ll even use your frequent flyer miles and/or preferred hotel stay programs. We’ll also provide visa assistance, as well as recommendations for the best restaurants, shopping, and more.

5. Unparalleled support means we’re there for you every step of the journey — even after the plane takes off. Contact us at any time for travel assistance; we act as your travel advocate for truly worry-free travel. We’ll make sure everything goes smoothly, so all you have to do is savor the experience.
