Written by Thomson Safaris

It’s our fifth time on Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Safari Tours list! We  want to thank our guests who voted to make this possible.

This recognition means so much to us. Recipients aren’t picked by a panel of judges or critics. Travelers like you rated the nominees themselves, voting based on their trip’s staff, guides, itinerary, destinations, activities, accommodations, food and overall value. Our placement among the World’s Best is a sign that Thomson travelers are experiencing transformative, world-class travel in every criterion.  We’re particularly touched our guests had us top of mind during the pandemic, when distractions abounded and travel plans were on hold everywhere.

Asante sana, rafikis. Your acknowledgement means the world to us.

Shoutout to Gibb’s Farm

Thomson Safaris wasn’t the only winner. For the fifth time, Gibb’s Farm was named one of Travel + Leisure’s Top 100 Hotels in the World, as well as one of the Best Safari Lodges in Africa.

Many of our safaris finish at this luxurious eco-lodge, owned by Thomson founders Rick Thomson and Judi Wineland. We’re thrilled that it continues to delight our guests with some of the world’s best service, surroundings and accommodations.
