We’re celebrating our sixth year as a World’s Best Safari Outfitter, as named by Travel + Leisure, and we want to thank all our guests who made this exciting achievement possible.

This award means so much to us because winners are determined by T+L readers and travelers–not by a panel of judges or critics. We scored an average guest rating of 96.67 out of 100! These high marks are an affirmation that we really are providing the life-changing, world-class safari experience that travelers seek.

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


A Shoutout to Gibb’s Farm

Thomson Safaris wasn’t the only winner this year. Gibb’s Farm was named second out of the 10 Best Safari Lodges in Africa.

Many Thomson guests visit this luxurious eco-lodge on the slopes of Ngorongoro Crater, owned by Thomson co-founders Rick Thomson and Judi Wineland. We’re thrilled that it continues to delight guests with some of the best service, surroundings and accommodations Africa has to offer.
