Your Africa safari specialist
For anyone interested in a tailor-made safari to Eastern or Southern Africa, Van Bommel Safaris is a transparent safari specialist. We also provide a diverse range of safari photography tours.
Tailor-made safaris don’t have to be expensive. Van Bommel Safaris is never more expensive than booking directly, often more affordable because, where possible, you benefit from our discounts.
I would be pleased to schedule a meeting with you by telephone/WhatsApp. This can be in the morning, afternoon, or evening, weekdays or in the weekend. Whenever it suits you best, it doesn’t matter from what country you are, I will call. Only if you live in the Netherlands I prefer a personal meeting with you.
After a comprehensive consultation which focuses on your wishes and needs, I’ll get to work for you and, without any obligation to you, put together a personalized travel plan for you. I will supply you with all the information you may need about your destination, the accommodation and activities. In nearly all of my proposed itineraries, you will have a day-to-day breakdown of costs, making it easy for you to decide what appeals to you. If desired, adjustments and changes can still be made. Only when you are 100% satisfied and give your approval, will I proceed to book the trip.
Van Bommel Safaris aims to showcase the beauty of African safaris at its best. Providing you with the best advice is crucial to help you make informed decisions for your tailor-made safari. Reliable information, transparent prices, and excellent service are integral parts of our policy.
For effective safari advice, having knowledge of nature and animal behavior is crucial. Seasonal influences often determine where animals are located and how easily they can be observed. Skilled trackers make a significant difference. While no one can guarantee that you will see everything you desire, my knowledge of nature in various areas ensures you get the best realistic opportunities.
Van Bommel Safaris lets you experience the real Africa in terms of hospitality, culture, and nature, tailored to your preferences.
My name is Jos van Bommel and I am a real safari lover. Ever year, since the year 2000, I travel for three to four months to safari Africa. All these journeys and my experience in the tourist business have made me a professional safari specialist
In 2009 I opened my own travel agency ‘Van Bommel Safaris’ for which I now work fulltime. During my own private safari trips I have experienced the warm and heartfelt hospitality of Africa in many different ways. To expand my knowledge of African nature I have taken a ranger training course there.
Film and photography are two other great passions of mine. This led to me hosting photography trips in Africa and to giving photography safari workshops in Apeldoorn.
I have provided the promotional photographs for John Varty’s film ‘Leopard Queen’ on the website of the National Geographic Society. For their documentary ‘Brothers in Blood: the Lions of Sabi Sand’ the Discovery Channel also used my film material. As did National Geographic Wild for their ‘Caught in the Act’ part 7 and their ‘Africa’s Deadliest’.
Van Bommel Safaris lives and breaths Africa. The memorabilia and photographs in their office betray their experience and knowledge. They don’t promote with quasi study trips or PowerPoint presentations, but they share their own stories.
