Matthew Grace & Nicolette Grace ~ Founder & Owner

The African Safari Guru Travel Company was founded in 2005 based on a Passion for Travel, Adventure, Wildlife, People and the Spectacular Landscapes of Southern Africa. It has been for over a decade; we've been Planning and Customising Travel Experiences for our exceptional guests from all over the world. We are a Small Local Travel Company where we have established ourselves as one of the Specialist Travel Designers on the African Continent ~ So much of who we are today is where we have been!!!


Matthew & Team bring immense knowledge and love of South Africa and curate a special experience

Matthew worked closely with us to design a safari experience tailor made to our needs.

For us, as first time Safari-goers, we did not know what to do expect. He patiently explained the nuances of different regions, accommodations, time of year nuances and travel distances to maximize fun and enjoyment.

We ended up doing a 10 day package in South Africa: 1 day driving on the Panorama Route, 3 days inside Kruger in the rustic Olifants camp doing bush walks, 3 days in the private game reserve Timbavarti at Shindzela camp doing game drives and finally at Matthew's own luxury reserve in the south of Kruger, Grace of Africa.

Each showed us different ways that one can safari and we loved it. Matthew was also quite responsive to us wanting to change up the itinerary on the fly and went out of his way to come up with off-the-beaten-path activities like a local waterfall and driving through rural towns

Incredibly knowledgeable with exceptional service

Where do I even start with how amazing this trip was, thanks to the detailed planning and professionalism of Matthew Grace, from African Safari Guru, and all of the staff we encountered during our three weeks in Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar. We did not have to worry about a single thing once we arrived in Nairobi. All the planned accomodation, transportation and activities happened seamlessly. The quality of every camp and hotel was exceptional and Matt was very responsive anytime we needed to confirm details or ask a question, including late at night and weekends!!!

We were able to customise our trip up front with all the specific activities we were looking for. We ventured out on a night safari, visited a Masai village, flew in a hot air balloon over the Masai Mara, and headed out on safari riding a camel, with a Masai Guide, to name a few.

We saw the Big 5 and MANY more animals. Each day on safari was unique and exciting! The safaris were personal, and our guides were very experienced and knowledgeable. Heading back to camp each evening and falling asleep to the sounds of lions roaring and hyenas howling among a host of other animal calls...was truly incredible :).

We will never forget the memories made on this trip. We hope to return again and without a doubt will be calling Matt at African Safari Guru.

Extremely knowledgeable

I have booked trips to South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia numerous times through African safari guru and have always been extremely happy. It is a great company run by the most passionate person I have ever known. His love for animals and Africa is unmatched.
I have got to the point where I just tell him the dates and nothing else and he plans me the perfect holiday. I don't even read the detailed itinerary he sends me anymore because I trust him so much and enjoy the surprise.
I can't recommend this company enough, they are beyond fabulous.

Excellent, knowledgeable and professional service.

This past September marked our second visit to South Africa and our second time utilizing the services of Matthew Grace - African Safari Guru. We selected Matthew’s business for our initial trip based on his apparent knowledge in making suggestions and offering a custom designed trip that exactly suited our needs. Every step of the process was handled with professionalism and Matthew kept in constant contact with us - answering any questions we might have along the way. Our first trip was such a success we did not hesitate to contract the services of ASG for our family trip in September. We had a fairly extensive “wish list” for this trip an and once again Matthew came through. All our accommodations, transfers, safari’s and day excursions were exactly as booked - he even managed to arrange an additional private safari for us at the last minute! I highly recommend African Safari Guru for anyone’s travel needs.

Outstanding service and incomparable attention to detail. Could not be better!

This was our second safari to South Africa in two years and Matthew Grace, owner of African Safari Guru arranged both. Honest, kind, detail oriented and simply a very good person who loves what he does and does it singularly well. I would love to do another trip with him and am absolutely convinced you cannot find a better person or company to work with.
