Why Gorilla Sights Safaris
we we’d like you to get to know us and our Experience
Safaris can often be expensive, once-in-a-lifetime trips – how can you be certain that the company you’re considering is a genuine expert when it comes to designing safaris? Below, our co-founders highlight a few points that are core to our values.

1. Our approach to ‘selling’ safaris

At GSS, it’s really important to us that our specialists don’t aggressively ‘sell’ safaris. The simple theory is that if we focus on offering the best possible advice, you’ll recognise our level of knowledge and you’ll want to book a trip with us. The ‘hard sell’ approach favoured by other companies is simply not the way we want to work. Our staff are encouraged to engage through the sheer quality of information we can provide rather than through a forceful sales approach.  

2. We are not driven by commission

It may sound like a strange thing to say, but our team are encouraged to design trips that they would go on themselves. The point here is that we don’t design safaris to properties offering the highest commissions, so our sales staff are not incentivised by commission opportunities from an individual booking. That’s something surprisingly few companies can say – it’s incredibly important at GSS, for our clients and ultimately for the best safari design.

3. Customer service is at our core

Incredibly high levels of customer service are integral to the way we work. We have a special department that concentrates solely on the level of service our clients receive. We have a 24/7 emergency phone line that’s operated by our best consultants every single day of the year. It’s a core company value.

4. We offer great-value safaris

GSS's reputation and ‘preferred partner’ status with many camps and lodges means we are confident our rates are extremely competitive. The brand has been built upon the fact that we want to offer value, but at the same time it's important to stress that we don't want to be the cheapest on the market. We've always believed that's a dangerous approach to take in Africa. At GSS we do our best to lead the industry safety standards, especially on that incredibly rare occasion when we have to react in a crisis. That kind of operational focus comes at a price.

5. We love giving back to Africa

We’ve always believed in giving something back to Africa. Since the company’s beginnings, a percentage of our profits has gone towards conservation and helping communities through the charities we support. It’s incredibly important to us and something we’re happy to talk about with our clients.

6. We’re fully accredited & bonded

We want to inspire your complete confidence, so that when you book with us you know you’re being looked after from the beginning of your safari to the end. Gorilla Sights Safaris is fully accredited and bonded under AUTO UTB IATA $UWA and we’re on standby 24 hours per day, 365 (or 366!) days per year. Gorill Sights Safaris is a full member of the African Travel and Tourism Association (ATTA), the main trade association that oversees the safari sector and is recognised throughout the industry as the definitive authority on all matters concerning tourism to Africa. You’re in safe hands!
