The Classic Safari Company offers tailor made, unique journeys to Africa, India, Latin America and the Indian Ocean Islands. With an unbridled passion for Africa Julie McIntosh founded The Classic Safari Company in 1992. In 1993 Sarah Hoyland joined the company and over the years they have developed The Classic Safari Company to become known as ‘the safari innovator’- responsible for introducing exceptional, life-changing experiences to the Australian market. Bespoke journeys to India and Morocco are included in our portfolio, and recognizing the desire for travellers to journey yet further afield, Latin America has been introduced.

We focus on small groups and tailor-made travel and only partner with the premier safari camps, lodges and boutique hotels that offer exceptional hospitality, professionalism in the fields of guiding and conservation and who have an affinity for offering our clients the most authentic and unobtrusive wilderness experience.
