Craig Doria Safaris offers the ultimate in African safaris – each safari is individually designed with you to the finest detail, and expertly guided by Craig Doria.
What makes these safaris outstanding is a combination of the most extraordinary destinations on the continent; the experience and passion which Craig brings to the task and the superior outfitting by Ker & Downey Tanzania the most respected name in African safaris.
After many years guiding and managing at the top end of the safari world, Craig is in a perfect position to create the finest safaris available in Africa for a very select few.
It is the true connoisseur’s safari – individually designed, individually guided. It is your safari and your ideas are used to build your safari.
You may want to stay in lodges or you may want your own exclusive luxury tented camp erected close to the wildebeest migration on the Serengeti plains.
Perhaps you’d like to spend some time with the chimpanzees on wild Lake Tanganyika or you might wish to sail in a refurbished schooner to the magical island of Lamu. Here you will disappear into the ancient Swahili coastal culture staying in the most stylish traditional homes which can be seen on www.lamuretreats.com
Or maybe you do not know what is out there, and need expert advice to design the perfect safari. Either way you will not find anyone who will dedicate more attention to finding out what suits you best than Craig.
Wherever necessary additional specialist guides can be sourced. For example Dom Lever, an accomplished photographer and guide has joined Craig on several safaris (see www.domleverphoto.com). Dom works with guests on wildlife photography and the days pictures can be viewed on laptop in the evenings.
Local cultures are dealt with sensitively and an anthropologist is consulted to ensure a genuine cultural experience in a remote non-tourist setting. As a result of relationships built up from previous work with Maasai communities, Craig and Ker & Downey (Tz) have several villages way off the tourist route to which he takes his own groups exclusively.
