ROAR Africa Review

ROAR Africa offers a one-of-a-kind travel service for personalized, custom tours. The founder's family dates back to 1688, ensuring a wealth of information and well-established network that can only come from years of actually living in Africa. Clients have had memorable and life-changing adventures, such as meeting with artists and tribesmen, dinner with a CEO from their industry, walking with lions, umpiring a national cricket match, meeting Nelson Mandela's family, and visiting township schools. ROAR is headquartered in New York but also has offices in South Africa. It runs its own ground operation, which enables concierge-level service and support during both the planning phase and travel.

Destinations serviced: Botswana, Kenya, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe.

Most popular package: South Africa, Cape Town Winelands, & Safari; 10 days, from $10,000.

Philanthropy: ROAR Africa supports three foundations focused on improving the lives of impoverished children. They also sponsor Save the Rhino and The Big Cats foundations.

What they do best: Impeccable attention to detail and imaginative, bespoke itineraries.
