We’re Simply the Best: Africa’s Leading Safari Company in World Travel Awards 2021


October 20, 2021

The Oscars of the travel industry, the World Travel Awards, tallied up the votes placed over the last few months, and the results are in: Rhino Africa has been crowned Africa’s Leading Safari Company 2021! This year’s win is the 7th time in nine years that Rhino Africa has won the prestigious title, and cements us as one of the most awarded tour operators on the African continent.

We’re Simply the Best, Better Than All The Rest…

At Rhino Africa, we don’t believe in playing small. We like the grandest, biggest, first-class of everything! So, we do everything we can to ensure our guests get this VIP experience from start to finish. And it has all paid off! 

“We’re delighted to share that we’ve once again scooped the award as Africa’s Leading Safari Company at the prestigious World Travel Awards,” says CEO and Founder David Ryan. “After an incredibly challenging past 18 months, the light at the end of the tunnel is becoming brighter, and this award just reinforces that African travel is here to stay and of the difference it makes in our guests’ lives.”

The Rhino Africa Difference

Rhino Africa was a passion project that David started at his kitchen table 17 years ago. Since then, we have planned dream African holidays for over 150,000 of our guests. But what sets us apart and makes us consistently come out at the top as Africa’s Leading Safari Company?

We believe it’s because we tailor-make each holiday down to the smallest details, such as your preferred G&T ratio. Secondly, we know what we’re talking about! We’ve walked the walk so that we can talk the talk. We don’t suggest something to our guests that we haven’t experienced for ourselves first. It’s this level of expertise and attention to detail that keeps our guests coming back for more year after year!

Out-of-this-world experiences await you in Africa.

Last but definitely not least, it’s our innovative nature to evolve our offering to best serve our guests’ needs. For example, this year, we introduced Africa’s very first and only 100% refundable deposit, a game-changer in the current travel climate.

If there’s one thing we know it’s that we’ll always place our valued guests first, and we look forward to many more years of making your African travel dreams come true!

South Africa is Open for Travel

Remarking on the recent adjustments in travel regulations seen in the UK, David Ryan comments: “We’re excited to be booking trips for our guests yet again, and that the removal of South Africa from the UK red list has already seen a steep incline in bookings with Rhino Africa. We encourage our guests to head south for the summer and experience why we’re Africa’s Leading Safari Company. We hope to see you soon.”
