Africa Exclusive Founding Director, John Burdett takes you on a journey of discovery, exploring the evolution of safaris over the last 30 years. He is joined by his daughter, Laura Burdett-Munns who leads the Africa Exclusive team today, to discuss what the next 30 years will bring and how we all have a role to play in the protection of Africa’s wild places.
In 1990, inspired by a passion for Africa, John Burdett started Africa Exclusive. His aim, to introduce people to the wonders of Africa in the best possible way. For John, that meant exploring remote, wildlife rich areas in complete privacy. When most people were travelling around Kenya in minibuses, John and his team were pioneering walking safaris to remote corners of Zimbabwe in the company of Africa’s best guides. Fifteen years ago, with that passion for Africa in her DNA, John’s daughter Laura joined the company. Today she leads Africa Exclusive’s team of safari experts. Their mission remains unchanged: to handcraft the finest safaris, allowing people to discover the extraordinary wildlife and wild places of Africa while ensuring their protection for future generations.
