About
Moriti specialises in private African safari tours throughout Southern and Central Africa. We are as far from a mass tourism operator as you can get and only plan safaris and tours for couples, families, and small groups of friends. We offer small and intimate guided safaris in countries like South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Zambia in destinations like Kruger National Park, Cape Town, The Okavango Delta and Victoria Falls. What unites our little safari business, as well as our support team and guides, is a love of safaris, a strong dislike of poor customer service, and a desire to make travel a bit more caring through our belief that respecting people, animals and places better truly results in our guests having more authentic African holidays. What we do is simple, we provide an experience-based safari that not only makes you fall in love with our beautiful continent but makes you come back and that is our secret, a safari love affair with Mama Africa and our guests.

Amazing,

I did research for 7 months before I decided on Moriti Private Safari's so let me save you the trouble. Look no further! Shaun is the simply the best. He absolutely knows what he is doing, and you will have an amazing experience. My husband and I did 3 camps for 3 nights each one in Zimbabwe and two in Botswana. Each camp was different and provided a different experience. This was our first trip to Africa and all I can say is I may never go anywhere else but Africa again and I would never consider using anyone else other than Shaun and Moriti. Everything was arranged from the internal flights and all the transfers. The camps we stayed out were simply the best. Accommodations were exactly what we were looking for and the service at each place was superb. They even set up special dinners with champagne in our room to celebrate our 30th and retirement it was wonderful. We saw amazing things from a Cheetah to a Honey Badgers, elephants, lions, zebras, giraffe, leopards, cape buffalo the list goes on. Shaun was available throughout the trip by WhatsApp and he was always quick to respond if we had a question or need. I can't say enough! Shaun if you read this, we are so grateful thank you so much for an amazing amazing beyond my wildest dreams experience!

Moriti Private Safari’s was the perfect choice to trust when planning our African Adventure. Shaun and his team did an amazing job of organizing our entire trip. We asked for small authentic lodges and unique experiences and they definitely delivered. We loved both lodges we stayed at-the level of customer service was incredible!!! A few of our favorite small details were, hot water bottles and blankets to help keep you warm during our morning game drive, gluten meal arranged ahead of time as well as gluten free snacks, birthday cake and party for our turning 15 year old daughter. We also spent a week exploring the garden route. We loved the flexibility and thoughtfulness of our guide, as we were able to plan activities that both our children and us adults enjoyed. It’s a trip we will be talking about for years to come!!!

Shaun arranged our 3 night Cape Town holiday followed by a 5 night safari at Nzumba Lodge, Klaserie Private Game Reserve. His help in deciding our ideal holiday was fantastic and the communication was great. My wife and I both agree this was our best ever holiday! We would recommend using Shaun to arrange your perfect holiday.

We had a private guide for 3 days in Cape Town, Matt was easygoing and friendly and of course knowledgeable about Cape Town as he has lived in Cape Town all his life. We toured Cape Town and Table Mountain, the wine lands of Franckshoek and Stellenbosch, and explored the peninsula (including the adorable African penguins!). We stayed at the amazing hotel The Last Word Constantia.

We then flew to Kruger where we stayed at Nzumba Lodge for 5 days. Matt was our guide and his wife Megan was our host at the Lodge, Peter was our amazing tracker and David was the chef who delivered find dining at every meal. The game drives were jaw droppingly stupendous, we saw the big five and plenty other amazing wildlife. Staff were amazing and went the extra mile at every opportunity. Best. Holiday. Ever!!!

Our family went on a safari with Shaun in April 2024 and had a fantastic time! Shaun is extremely knowledgeable and his passion for African wildlife shines through with his comedic storytelling. We had a few special close encounters with animals - particularly getting to sit near playful lion cubs - and felt 100% safe the entire time. It was the best holiday we’ve had, and I would recommend Moriti Safaris to everyone!

Thanks, Issy, what a great time we had and I have fond memories of guiding all of you. I think my highlight was learning that card game and playing each night at the game lodge with you and your family. I am so happy you had such a great safari and I hope to get my own back with the cards again someday. Much love to you and your family.

I wish there were more than 5 stars to give Shaun Taylor, Jamie and Siobhan of Moriti tours. This is a 6 star rating, above and beyond anything you could hope for or imagine. I’m serious! Book your tour with these guys immediately.

One word exemplifies the Moriti experience: OUTSTANDING. Shaun Taylor nailed our vacation. We spent 3 days in Cape Town before heading to Kruger and the hotel selected was excellent; the airport transfers were as scheduled, and the two-day guided tour was remarkable (special thanks to our guide Matt B.) The Rhino Plans & Post experience that Shaun recommended was remarkable and the last safari at the Nzumba Lodge was the ultimate safari adventure. On schedule and on budget. Moriti answered any questions quickly and offered options when asked. Again, an outstanding experience.

This review isn't so much about the great accommodations and fine times that Shaun arranged as he does so well. During our 10 days visit my partner became seriously ill requiring hospitalization and our friends had a death in the family requiring an unscheduled return to home. Our trip went upside down. Shaun jumped in with both feet and monitored all aspects of our difficulties. He has a special relationship with the service providers who all know him well. This is an aspect of selecting a travel advisor that one does not often consider and is worth it's weight in gold. You simply won't find a better and more caring outfit than Moriti Safaris. We remain in touch with Shaun who is assisting us post travel with insurance claims and continued issues. Don't think twice, just book with Moriti and know you have the best.

Hi Rick! Thank you so much for your kind words. It truly was a safari besieged by problems, wasn't it!? They say 'It is not what happens to you that counts, but how you handle it' and we all certainly made a massive effort to salvage what we could. Thanks to you, Steph and your friends for working with me and the team to get things on track again towards the end. I am glad Steph is well again and we all think of your friends daily during this tough time. I hope you can make it back so we can reset and redo the safari together.

This was my third trip with Moriti and I can't wait for the next. The first two trips I went with a group and someone else did the planning, but this was my first time planning from start to finish. Excellent customer service from Moriti all around. We did a safari in Krueger National Park and added on a few days in Cape Town. Everything was fabulous - the accommodations, the staff, the food, the sightings, everything! We went as a family, group of four. If you're even considering a trip with Moriti don't hesitate and just book, you will not regret it!

What an epic trip we just experienced with Moriti Private Safaris! We did a safari in Kruger National Park just outside Hoedspruit at the Walker River Camp. We saw the big 5 all in one day…not once but two days in a row! We witnessed a pride of 22 lions sleeping, prowling, and eating their kill. We saw about 20 elephants frolicking in a water hole having a great time and we were the only ones to see the leopard! We saw these and so much more all because of Moriti and our guide Shaun! Shaun is exceptional at his job and you can just see the passion, knowledge, expertise, and sense of humor he brings that made this safari a once in a lifetime experience for us. The lodging at the Walker River Camp was top notch with an extremely friendly staff. Our private chef was outstanding making sure we were well fed specializing in local comfort foods…thank you, Lindsay! We also spent a few extra days in Cape Town and Moriti made all the arrangements for us including two days of sightseeing. All went extremely smooth and we got to experience so much more than the epic safari we just completed. If anyone has any bit of doubt about experiencing a safari, DO IT! You will not regret it and do it with Moriti Private Safaris. Our family got an experience of a lifetime together so thank you, Shaun and Moriti, from all of us!
