S.A. Adventures is a pioneer in the specialty African safari market and continues to be known and respected throughout the industry for exceptional service and a highly knowledgeable staff. Founded in 1992 the agency was acquired in 1999 by High Adventure, a company with its roots in building luxury lodges on three continents. This background, combined with the best product knowledge in the industry gives S.A. Adventures the ability to customize journeys and provide customer satisfaction on a level that is unequalled.

Of course a company is nothing but a name without the people behind it.
John Burrell, SA Adventureís President and CEO, is one of the most respected professionals in the industry. A certified Wildlife Biologist and award-winning tour operator, he was the recipient of the prestigious Sporting Classics Magazine Award of Excellence for travel and was featured weekly on ESPN as an expert on international travel. He and his destinations have been featured in the New York Times and Southern Bride Magazine. Itís Johnís passion for the Africa bush that has lead him on over 30 safaris and that helps keep him up to date on the ever changing African environment. Itís his love of the African wildlife and background as a biologist that lead him to get involved with research in some of Africaís premier wildlife areas including lion/ tuberculosis study in the sabi sands, elephant relocation from the greater Kruger Park area and a leopard population census in the tuli circle of Zimbabwe. John is a hands on company owner and donít be surprised if he is not personally checking on your safari every step of the way.

Robin Phillips, outside sales, is the newest member of our team. She comes to us with over 25 years of sales and marketing experience in the travel/tourism industry. Her lifelong travel dream was fulfilled when she visited South Africa for the first time. It was at that point she knew she wanted her tourism focus to be directed toward Africa! Since then Robin has visited dozens of safari lodges, properties and hotels throughout Africa. Her focus is the travel agent community, small and large groups, meetings and incentives. She loves to think ďout of the boxĒ and would love to discuss your travel plans and dreams of Africa.

Our entire staff visits the continent annually to stay current on the ever charging face of African Tourism. While the company has grown tremendously over the years, we are still an employee owned company with our focus where it counts, on our customers. We think the editors of Sporting Classics Magazine said it best: "with their commitment to quality and emphasis on personal attention, SA Adventures is sure to maintain their position of excellence for years to come."
